Another Contestant Is Kicked Off of 'So You Think You Can Dance' (VIDEO)

Another Contestant Is Kicked Off of 'So You Think You Can Dance'We had a very appropriate (but unintentional) metaphor tonight on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 9PM ET on Fox). During this episode, the Cirque du Soleil dance troupe showed up. And they performed a version of the Elvis song 'Return to Sender.' But their act featured only a few girls -- who were lost in a sea of men.

It's hard to think of a better metaphor for the show right now, as the guy/girl ratio is becoming seriously skewed. As of tonight, we had six men and only three women. And by the end of the show ... there would be one less dancer.

[Spoiler alert.]

Based on viewer voting, Melinda, Robert and Billy found themselves in the bottom three. And in a non-surprising decision by the judges, Melinda was the one eliminated. Of all the dancers, she had the most obvious flaw. Melinda had previously had a shoe malfunction while dancing, where her footwear got tangled up in her dress. The judges were not pleased by this, and found it to be far less charming than the other recent wardrobe malfunction on the show.

Melinda handled her dismissal with class and grace. She said that she was "thankful to share [the] gifts" that she had been given, and also thanked her family and the friends who had helped her. Then, she politely left the show.

So that was the end of Melinda. ... And so, then there were eight. Six guys and only two girls. Will any of the ladies manage to make it to the end of the contest?

It's clear the girls are not going to make it far this season

Do you think it has to do with talent or just judge favoritism at this point in the competition?
