LOS ANGELES (AP) — Team USA will not repeat as “Dancing with the Stars” champions after Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles was eliminated from the reality competition despite perfect scores for her two dances during Monday night’s performance.

Judges were visibly shocked following host Tom Bergeron’s announcement that Biles and dance partner Sasha Farber finished last in fan voting.

Biles was gracious afterward, saying she learned a lot about herself and planned to return for next week’s finale.

She was hoping to follow in the footsteps of Olympic teammate Laurie Hernandez, who won the Mirrorball Trophy last season.

Biles’ elimination leaves former Chicago Cubs catcher David Ross, NFL free agent Rashad Jennings and Fifth Harmony singer Normani Kordei in the running for the crown at the finale.

    I never in my life seen a more ignorant bunch of judges than i did last night on DWTS i watch DWTS every season but last night was what i think was the worst act of sportsmanship by Len that i have ever seen they should just give the mirrorball to David Ross without him dancing this is my opinion

      It was NOT the judges that caused Biles’s early departure; they awarded her two perfect scores. It was the fans lack of support that caused her to leave!

    I know a lot of people watch, I don’t anymore, but does everyone vote? Voting changes things. I am also not so blind or dumb to think that things are always as they seem, it’s whoever the powers-that-be want to win. If you voted than at least you can say, I voted for her to win, anything else is out of your control.
    Ms. Biles is and will always be a winner in American’s history books. She should be proud of all she’s accomplished. I’m pretty sure she’s glad she had the opportunity to learn a new skill and be great at, even if she did not win.

  4. Simone I like… The show I never liked… She is a Gold Medal Olympian being voted off DWTS is taking nothing away from her… Now clap on that dumbass larry…smh!

    I hollered when they called Simone’s name. Was sure they were saying she was safe. David Ross danced okay but no way in hell did he dance better than her when she had perfect scores. Guess she didn’t smile enough for that evil ass Carrie Ann. Then the four of them want to act surprised and sad. Proud of you Simone. Hope Rashad wins but seems like Normani is their favorite. I’m done with this show.

    I use to love Dancing with the Stars. When they replaced Samantha with that manly lookin Erin I stopped watching it. I can’t stand her voice. it is sickening. Also did anyone know that when DWTS first premiered a black lady was the host. Well just like the dancers, especially african american ones get kicked off so did she. She did not last a month! I forgot her name its been so long.

    • African Americans aren’t the only race of people who get kicked off the show and they aren’t the only ones to win. Emmitt Smith and Jaleel White are both black, both winners. It’s not always about race. Ms. Biles was voted off because she ticked off a good portion of the viewing audience by being persnickety. I fully expected her to be voted off. In my opinion, she is the best gymnast in the world, but she’s not the best dancer on that show. She was able to do the steps, but her affect was off. She always came off as disconnected, in my opinion. I think Ms. Kordei will probably walk away with the Disco Ball this year. Smiling won’t win you gold medals, but it will win you votes when the judges live in tv land.

  8. I guess Simone did not skin and grin enuff for the judges!!!!!

    Folks seem to be judged on the “personality” rather than how well they dance.
