Hopefully, two straight weeks of great scores and our touting her as a contender didn’t jinx The Fearless One. Probably, it was just that she didn’t get enough votes... so I can assuage my guilt and throw The Bella Army under the bus.
Either way, Nikki Bella’s time on Dancing With The Stars came to an abrupt end during their Halloween Night episode on Oct. 30.
Her witchcraft-themed jive with professional partner Artem Chigvintsev didn’t wow the judges, who placed them near the bottom of the eight remaining teams with a 24.
The duo also competed in a group dance with three other couples, and that didn’t impress the panel either. Their corn maze-themed number earning the same score (24), while the other eight dancers nailed their Phantom of the Opera riff to the tune of a perfect 30.
Nikki and Artem were among four pairs under the axe at the end. Not bad odds, especially considering fan voting came after a strong showing last week. But when host Tom Bergeron revealed it would be a double elimination... the longest reigning Divas champion in WWE history was done dancing, along with Vanessa Lachey and her pro.
But what an amazing journey! I’ve learned so much. Most of all 2 take chances, don’t be afraid, & live life 2 the fullest! Thank you DWTS! N— Nikki & Brie (@BellaTwins) October 31, 2017
Though the Mirror Ball trophy won’t be Bella’s, she does have the love of a good man...
... and the season premiere of yet another show, Total Divas, coming up on Wednesday, Nov. 1. So things aren’t bad at all.
C’MON GREAT JOB NIKKI!
