Dancing With The Stars 2019: Shock Elimination For Olympia Valance

It was the elimination no one saw coming with Olympia the next to leave the competition.

It seemed like a battle between Olympia and Courtney Act would be the one to watch throughout the competition, but due to middling scores following her Pulp Fiction inspired performance, it was the elimination that no one saw coming.

Not even the contestants themselves.

Standing in the bottom three alongside Sir Curtley Ambrose and Samuel Johnson, Olympia was, unfortunately, the celebrity who received the lowest combined number of votes.

"There's just no way we could have seen that coming," Judge Sharna Burgess said immediately after Olympia's name was called out.

"You're amazing girl... you deserve to be here, absolutely."

"I just can't believe I'm getting voted out in this outfit," a shocked Olympia joked.

Following her Pulp Fiction solo dance, Olympia and her dance partner Jarryd also took part in the group performance dedicated to the music from Bohemian Rhapsody. But the Queen-inspired dance failed to score them the points needed to edge out the other team dance, leaving Olympia and Jarryd just at the bottom half of the leaderboard.

Still, it was a shocking result no one predicted.

Just last week Olympia and Jarryd were the couple to beat, sitting firmly at the top of the leaderboard.

Tearing up as she began to thank Jarryd, Olympia said, "I'm just so sad I won't get to see him every day."

Jarryd agreed saying he was shattered and adding, "I wanted Australia and the world to see how incredible this girl is."

The shock elimination was also felt on social media.

Dancing With The Stars airs 7.30 Monday on 10 and 10 play.
