Last night ABC viewers watched as Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were eliminated from Dancing With The Stars. This controversial couple didn’t seem too surprised when they didn’t make the finals, but apparently Hope burst into tears when the cameras stopped rolling. Keep reading to find out what happened backstage on DWTS.
Hope Solo and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy made it to the semi-finals of DWTS, but were eliminated from the show last night. Maks and Hope have had several tiffs with the judges all season and this week was no exception. After Hope received sevens for one of her performances this week, she told Maks that the judges could “kiss her booty.” In an interview Monday night Hope also told Us Weekly that she was disappointed with her scores and “there’s no other couple here who can do what we just did.”
So what happened after the Olympic athlete was eliminated from the dancing competition? According to US weekly, Hope did one interview and then refused to speak to any other press outlet. An eyewitness said that Hope broke into tears, while the other contestants were celebrating making it to the finals.
Immediately after Hope’s elimination she told Tom Bergeron, “This competition is one of the toughest competitions I’ve ever been part of. We have the most amazing fan base and instead of winning the mirror ball trophy, I’m going to try to win a gold medal.”
Is Hope a fierce competitor or a sore loser? Maybe she forgot this was a dancing competition that is supposed to be fun! Let us know what you think about Hope not wanting to talk to the press, leave a comment below!
