A week after Olympic gold medal gymnast Simone Biles shocked judges by saying “smiling doesn’t win you gold medals,” she stunned her fans by getting the boot from “Dancing With the Stars” — despite two perfect scores.
“The May 15 episode … ended with the show’s most shocking elimination… possibly ever,” said Us Magazine.
“In the final moments of the night, it was revealed [Biles and partner Sasha Farber] … missed the finals by one spot. The judges were clearly as shocked as everyone else — though it seemed no one was more shocked than David Ross, who has been trailing everyone else still in the running for weeks.”
Ross — the former Chicago Cubs star — again seemed to benefit from his baseball fans.
“I’m just thankful to be at this competition,” Biles said. “I feel like I’ve learned a lot about myself. I’ve matured and I can’t wait to go home and I’ll be back next week for the finale.”
