When Christina Milian got the boot a couple of weeks ago on Dancing With the Stars, everyone in the ballroom was stunned. Multiply that by a hundred, and that was the reaction when it was announced that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi of Jersey Shore fame was the eliminated celebrity this week on the hit show. Disbelief was clearly written on everyone’s faces, but none more so than Snooki, who’s been a frontrunner since week one. Trying to keep her tears in check, the reality star’s reaction was one of complete astonishment. “I can’t even talk right now. I love everybody here, so it sucks,” she said.
Last night, Snooki and her pro partner Sasha Farber danced a spirited and sexy samba that the judge Len Goodman deemed “amazing” and a job “well done.” The two other judges weren’t quite as effusive in the praise, with Bruno saying it was just “good.” Carrie Ann didn’t hold back, saying, “You have to stop dancing like a Chihuahua. Think a little bigger. Just extend you movements a little more, because you are a little short.”Um, a little short? Try a lot short. In spite of the less-than-stellar comments, fun-sized Snooki and Sasha still managed to score an impressive 27 points.
Their high scores from previous weeks obviously weren’t enough to keep them in the game, though, and even the 27 points she earned that night couldn’t save her. After landing in the bottom two alongside Bill Engvall, Snooki was ultimately delivered the bad news, and viewers got the second majorly shocking elimination of the season. Afterward, host Tom Bergeron expressed his disbelief over the decision, saying, “This is the one of the hardest ones we’ve had to deal with in a while.”
So what do you think about last night’s crazy elimination on Dancing With the Stars? Did Snooki deserve to go or should it have been Bill getting the axe? Tell us in the comments!
