After Laurie Hernandez, James Hinchcliffe and Jana Kramer were all revealed to be safe from elimination, only reality star Terra Jole and former NFL pro Calvin Johnson Jr. were faced with the stark reality of getting eliminated from competition.
Despite Jole and her pro partner, Sasha Farber, nabbing two perfect scores — first with their rumba and then a masterful tango during the trio dance — they were sent packing after an amazing 10-week run.
Calvin Johnson and his partner, Lindsay Arnold, who actually performed the lowest-scoring dance of the night, will move on to the DWTS finals.
After getting love and hugs from her fellow DWTS co-stars, Jole and Farber made their way to hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews for their final interview, in which Jole had nothing but praise for her hardworking partner.
“Sasha has been extremely supportive throughout this entire process and honestly, I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Sasha,” Jole shared. “I am just go grateful to have him as my partner.”
“When people ask me, in future interviews, who are my favorite people we’ve had on the show, your name’s on that list now,” Bergeron raved. “You’re amazing.”
The DWTS finals kick off Monday, Nov. 21 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
