Chaz Bono has seemed to easily survive five weeks of competition on "Dancing with the Stars," but he admitted he's usually shaking in his ballroom boots on elimination night.
"I'm nervous each week, are you kidding me?" Chaz told Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson, following Tuesday night's elimination show.
The author and activist was disappointed to see his pal, and fellow competitor, Carson Kressley, exit the floor last night, after he and partner Anna Trebunskaya were eliminated.
"Carson is the best. His routines are unbelievable entertaining and fun every single week," Chaz said. "Not having him on the show -- people are going to miss him. He was just awesome."
With another competition night less than a week away, Chaz is looking forward - to a tango with pro Lacey Schwimmer -- and the pair dropped hints of what's to come next Monday night.
"Our song is his mother's favorite Broadway play," Lacey revealed.
"It definitely was when I was a teenager, for sure," Chaz clarified, without giving any further hints.
One thing the pair hopes to improve on next week - in addition to dancing - is their costume issues. Chaz confirmed to Shaun he had a wardrobe malfunction on Monday.
"It was really my malfunction. I'd love to blame it on the wardrobe, but it was me that forgot to re-zip when I changed into this shirt," Chaz said, referring to the zip on his pants.
It was Lacey who actually told Chaz the news that his fly was down during their routine.
"She said it with a big grin - 'Your fly was down the entire time,'" he recounted of how Lacey broke the news. "I was mortified, of course. I didn't know how bad it was. When I saw it back, it wasn't that [bad]... When I watched my performance when I got home, you could only tell a couple times. I didn't know if it was like totally open the whole time."
