Kristin Cavallari on 'DWTS' Elimination: I Should Have Gone With a Sob Story

Talking to Jimmy Kimmel after she was voted off 'Dancing with the Stars', the former star of 'The Hills' says, 'It's hard to compete with some of the most memorable years.'

Despite collecting 24 out of 30 for her samba routine, Kristin Cavallari was booted off "Dancing with the Stars" on Tuesday, October 5. Later that night, the 24-year-old stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to talk about her shocking elimination, and tried to reason why she didn't get enough vote.

Having said that she was sad leaving the competition, the dancing partner of Mark Ballas told host Jimmy Kimmel, "Maybe I didn't have a good enough story." She went on admitting, "It's hard to compete with memorable years. Mine was I graduated from high school and moved to L.A."

In return, Jimmy noted the somber stories other contestants shared. "[J.R. Martinez], he picked the year 2003, when he was severely injured by a landmine in Iraq," he detailed. "Rob Kardashian - 2003, the year his father died. Chynna Phillips - 1990, the year she quit abusing drugs."

"Nancy Grace - 2007, the year her twins were born prematurely and spent time in the ICU. David Arquette - 2010, his marriage fell apart and he started drinking heavily. Ricki Lake - 2010, got divorced and her house burned down," he continued. "Your year was 2005 and it was most memorable because you had to choose between going to college and being on a reality show."

Though laughing at the comparison, Kristin admitted, "Looking back, maybe I should have done something a little bit sad." After Mark came to her defense by saying, "It was a memorable year, so usually you want to focus on the positive, right?", she said, "It wasn't a sob story, but obviously I should have gone with the other one."

In another interview, Kristin told Us Weekly at Ubisoft's launch of Just Dance 3 at The Beverly in West Hollywood that her dancing skills apparently aren't enough to win viewer votes. "That's the thing with 'Dancing with the Stars', you never know," she said jokingly. "It's clearly not a dance competition!"

Nonetheless, the former fiancee of Jay Cutler pointed out the positive. "I'd rather go out on top and have people be shocked than have people be like, 'Thank god she's leaving, it's about time.' It was the best experience I've ever had," she said. "I could not be happier that I did the show."

    So sorry that Mark's gone for this season. He was the only reason I was watching DWTS. There certainly isn't any "stars" to watch.

    Chad was the worst dancer! Even Hope was not as good as Kristin - stiff and awkward. It stinks that hard working dancer who does well is eliminated first.
