An elimination shocker on Dancing With The Stars sent one of the leading scorers and judges’ favorites home Tuesday night.
After the five lowest scoring couples from Monday were deemed safe, the night’s two perfect scoring dancers–Apolo Anton Ohno and Sabrina Bryan–faced elimination.
To the surprise of everyone in the audience, it was Sabrina, who was picked by fans to join the All-Star season, that was sent home in week six.
Sabrina, understandably disappointed by the results, said she was “grateful for the experience” adding that “every single person can understand what it feels like to get a second chance at something, and this was my second chance.”
It wasn’t just the judges and the audience that were left bewildered by the results though, dancing pro and friend Cheryl Burke couldn’t believe Sabrina was going home.
I am still in shock that Sabrina went home. She is an amazing and talented dancer.Just goes to show u how important voting is!Gonna miss her—

Former All-Star Drew Lachey was also outraged by the results.
Tonight's #DWTS elimination is just ridiculous. Are people watching the same show and seeing the same dances I am? No way this should happen—

Despite being voted off, Sabrina let all her loyal fans know she was thankful for the opportunity to be on the All-Star season:
THANK YOU Team Sabrina, yes tonight was sad but we wouldn't even be on the show without you! say.ly/rVM4u4z—
