Coming as a bit of a shock to the show's judges, participants and audience members, "Dancing with the Stars" sent another pair packing during the ABC competition's results show on Tuesday night (October 4).
With reality TV star Kristin Cavallari and World Cup soccer pro Hope Solo both in jeopardy, the unlucky contestant on this particular night ended up being Miss Cavallari and her partner Mark Ballas.
Drawing boos from the crowd as host Tom Bergeron revealed the news, Kristin seemed in total shock as her jaw dropped open before composing herself for her castoff interview.
Talking with co-host Brooke Charvet about her feelings post-elimination, the 24-year-old dished, “I’m a little surprised, to be honest, but I’ve had such a great time and I’ve had an awesome experience so it is what it is."
Equally taken aback by the dismissal, judge Len Goodman called Cavallari and Solo's bottom tier placement "madness" while adding, “This is truly crazy. My expectation was that these two couples would be fighting for the final … .”
Set to resume next Monday, remaining dancers vying for the the title of DWTS champ include Ricki Lake, David Arquette, Chaz Bono, Nancy Grace, Rob Kardashian, Carson Kressley, J.R. Martinez, Chynna Phillips and Miss Solo.
