Sabrina Bryan, a member of the Cheetah Girls, and her partner, Mark Ballas, were told by viewers to hang up their dancing shoes last night.
The couple was sent home in a shocking results show that left the audience, judges, and contestants gasping.
“We can’t even speak right now, it is like ridiculous. We are so shocked, I’m happy that we got through but I’m more overridden with shock and confusion about Mark and Sabrina going home tonight,” Derek Hough told Access Hollywood.
Jennie Garth echoed Derek’s thoughts, “It just doesn’t feel right. It feels like there was a mistake excuse, she is clearly clearly the best dancer in the competition. And I know that’s happened in previous years [where the best dancer doesn’t always win], but she should have been in the finals if nothing else. I mean come on people. It’s crazy, it’s Hollywood.”
Sabrina said she would miss the entire creative team behind the show. She was already prepping ideas for next week’s dance and wardrobe.
When asked about the shocking results, Sabrina told Access Hollywood, “You can never predict what is gonna happen on this show, especially this season. It’s been just you know, out of the blue. Just constantly shocking.”
The shocking results caused everyone to get a little emotional, especially Sabrina, who was holding back tears.
“The swarm of support at the very end of the show that almost made me cry. Just thinking, ‘Wow! I am not coming back next week,‘ it is crazy. It is such an unreal feeling, and knowing like we are not rehearsing tomorrow,” Sabrina said.
Her partner, Mark Ballas, thought maybe he didn’t push her hard enough.
“Umâ¦ it’s tough you know. I have had so much fun, grateful for the experience I’ve had. I’ve loved every minute of dancing with Sabrina and I just wanted to try my best to take her all the way but maybe I didn’t do enough,” he said.
Sabrina was adamant that he did everything he could. She even sent him well wishes for next season.
“And you know what, whoever gets him as a partner next seasonâ¦ whoosh, you think he came out with power this season you don’t even know what he’s got. You don’t even know! Huh baby,” she gushed to Access Hollywood.
Sabrina already has a post “Dancing” plan.
“I’m gonna go lock myself in a massage parlor and have someone pamper me all day.”
Cameron Mathison and partner Edyta Sliwinska, the other couple on the chopping block, narrowly avoided being sent home. Fan favorites (but low-scorers) Jane Seymour and Marie Osmond were saved by loyal voters last night.
