Jake Pavelka and Chelsie Hightower are the latest couple to be eliminated on ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars and the dance pair are sad to go. As witnessed by his tearful goodbye on Tuesday’s results show, The Bachelor is devastated to leave the reality dance competition but says dancing is forever part of his life now. Keep reading to hear what’s next for Pavelka and fiancee, Vienna Girardi, and what Chelsie Hightower thinks about being eliminated…

After a rough performance and low scores on Monday night’s episode of ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars, it wasn’t too surprising to see The Bachelor‘s Jake Pavelka and dance pro partner, Chelsie Hightower, get the boot on Tuesday’s results show. Still, Pavelka was clearly devastated as he tearfully admitted he never “imagined how hard it would be to say goodbye.” Backstage, Pavelka pulled it together and said, “Right now we’re a little bummed out, but it’s okay.”

His Dancing With the Stars‘ partner, Chelsie Hightower agreed, saying, “It’s always a little bummer when you go off the show. But at same time, I feel at peace because there was nothing more that we could’ve done in this competition to do well.”

The Bachelor says he’ll miss “the camaraderie with the other dancers” as well as his newfound “best friend,” Chelsie, but dancing is not something he plans to leave behind. “Dancing is part of me now!” he said. “The Latin dances are where my passions are.”

Pavelka started his stint on ABC‘s Dancing With the Stars right after his season of The Bachelor wrapped up, so he’s looking forward to some relaxing downtime with fiancee, Vienna Girardi, now that his reality TV days are over. “I feel pretty sure that we will go to Tahiti or Hawaii and kick our feet up for a little while and focus on our relationship and just see where life takes us right after that,” Pavelka says.
