Former Dancing with the Stars contestant Paulina Porizkova has said that Chaz Bono will stay in the competition because of sympathy votes, and claimed that attractive female contestants never go far on the show.

The former America's Next top Model judge, who was voted off first during the 2007 season, also described Bono's dancing as "mediocre".

"He's got a good sympathy vote, that's for sure!" Porizkova told The Huffington Post. "In order to be the best, you have to be mediocre."

The Sports Illustrated cover model said that she was voted off because she was unpopular, rather than on the basis of her dancing.

"Let's put this down as a fact, we were number four on the scores with the judges," she explained. "I was clearly just the least popular person there.

"Haven't you noticed that the ones that go first are models, unless they are fat?" Porizkova continued. "If you are attractive, you don't get sympathy and you need sympathy to be truly likeable."

Dancing with the Stars continues October 24.
