Dancing With the Stars is usually full of surprises during the season and last night’s elimination episode was no exception. The Hills star Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas were given the boot and surpisingly, Kristin admitted right before they went on air Mark had a feeling they were going to be sent home!
Kristin told reporters, “Right before we went on he said, ‘I just have a feeling we’re going home’ and I was like, ‘Stop! You’re making me nervous!’” Mark added, “I had a feeling within the last 15 minutes. I said, “I have a feeling we’re in trouble.”
Perhaps it could be similar to the Pia Toscano situation on last season’s American Idol? Kristin attributed going home to perhaps the lack of votes because everyone thought she was safe.
She pointed out, “Tom thought it was maybe one of those situations where everybody thought we were safe so they just felt like they should vote for other people.” Kristin also mentioned, “My story didn’t help also. Everyone had really sad stories and mine was graduating high school and moving to L.A.”
It sounds like she’ll look back on the experience with no regrets. “It’s just been incredible,” she said, “I’ve made a lot of new friends. We’ve become such a little family and I’ve learned how to dance which has been cool. It’s something I’ll have for the rest of my life. It’s just been a good experience all around.”
Considering she mentioned she “toned up a little bit,” Kristin is considering continuing dancing. She told reporters, “It’s a lot of fun and it’s a good workout.”
Although she is going to “miss seeing everybody every day,” Kristin’s enjoying her gig as the web ambassador for Chinese Laundry. “I’m doing fashion blogging and stuff like that for them. I’m going to continue doing that and then who knows, we’ll see.”
