The 'Hills' alum gets the boot after being placed in the bottom two along with Hope Solo, a situation that judge Len Goodman calls 'madness.'
The result of this week's "Dancing with the Stars" came out a bit shocking. Instead of axing one of the weakest contestants, the October 4's result show unveiled that Kristin Cavallari, who had shown steady performances, had to hang her dancing shoes.
Kristin was in jeopardy along with Carson Kressley and Hope Solo. Carson was placed among the bottom of current scoreboard, while Hope was only one place behind Kristin, but it was the former "The Hills" star who apparently was least favored by audience since the combination of judges' score and viewers' votes could not save her.
"I'm a little surprised, to be honest," the 24-year-old reality star admitted after being hugged by her professional dancer partner Mark Ballas upon learning her fate. She added, "But I've had such a great time and I've had an awesome experience so it is what it is."
Kristin was not the only one shocked by the result. Judge Len Goodman said Kristin's and Hope's placement in the bottom two was "madness" since he expected that the two contestants "would be fighting for the final." He gushed, "This is truly crazy."
Starting out strong, Kristin got 24 out of 30 for dancing the samba to Beyonce Knowles' "Crazy in Love" in the third week. Meanwhile, Chaz Bono continued struggling to show his best, but he still got the lowest score on Monday, October 3.
With Chaz surviving the elimination, fans can expect to see his mother Cher among the audience next week. The singer recently tweeted, "Hope Chaz hangs on till next week so I can come sit in the audience and watch!"
