But sadly one couple must be eliminated each week. Follow along below as we track every elimination this season.
Jason Lewis and Peta Murgatroyd
Sex and the City star Jason Lewis was the first celeb eliminated in the season 31 premiere after his cha cha failed to impress the judges. You know Samantha Jones’ PR firm would’ve found a way to spin this, but simply put, it’s sad to see Smith Jerrod — I mean, Jason Lewis go.
Cheryl Ladd and Louis van Amstel
Charlie’s Angels star Cheryl Ladd proved that “Diamonds Are Forever,” but her spot on the show isn’t. Her week 3 Bond night Rumba earned her the second lowest score of the night and the judges voted for her to go.
Sam Champion and Cheryl Burke
Good Morning America contributor and New York weather anchor Sam Champion reunited with longtime pal Cheryl Burke to fulfill his childhood dreams of dancing. But the judges wanted more intensity in his performances and voted to eliminate him in week 4.
Selma Blair and Sasha Farber
Although not technically eliminated, actress Selma Blair had to withdraw from the competition due to complications from her multiple sclerosis. On her last performance she said, “This is a dance for everyone who had tried and hoped they could do more, but also the power in realizing when it’s time to walk away.”
Joseph Baena and Daniella Karagach
Fitness model Joseph Baena heard praises from the judges week after week, even winning the title of “best rumba by a male” from judge Carrie Ann Inaba. But in a shocking twist only a day later, he was eliminated.
Dancing With the Stars season 31 continues this coming Monday and Tuesday on Disney live at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
