Warning: Spoilers regarding the latest elimination on Dancing with the Stars are discussed below.
The latest contestant to be eliminated from Dancing with the Stars has said that he does not believe the judges were on his side. Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown is opening up on his shocking elimination from the ballroom competition. During this week’s episode, Dancing with the Stars revealed another surprising bottom two.
Karamo Brown and The Office’s Kate Flannery were the two left in jeopardy under Dancing with the Stars’ red lights. It was up to the judges to decide which contestant would stay, thanks to those format changes. Carrie Ann Inaba opted to save Brown, while fellow judge Bruno Tonioli voted for Flannery. It would take a tie-breaker to decide!
Karamo Brown is shining a light on Dancing with the Stars’ judges having preconceived expectations for some contestants. Brown continued explaining why those expectations were not ideal for the competition. In essence, the judges had set Brown up to perform at another level due to their conceptions. Brown continued, saying:
Regardless of how he feels about the expectations the judges set him up with, Karamo Brown still gives the trio high marks. He especially points out their critiques as being useful. Explaining how the judges’ assessments impacted his efforts on Dancing with the Stars, Brown said:
Will the judges (and viewers) get to see Karamo Brown perform again for the finale? That has been a tradition in previous Dancing with the Stars seasons. Viewers will have to stay tuned to find out for sure. In the meantime, Brown’s Netflix series is returning soon!
Karamo Brown finished his Dancing with the Stars run strong. In what turned out to be his final performance (not counting the group dance), Karamo Brown performed the Paso doble. He earned a 25 out of 30 for his Halloween Night dance. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba gave Brown a 9, while Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman both scored him with 8s.
Those scores put Karamo Brown only two points behind the four-way tie at the top of Dancing with the Stars’ leaderboard. Kel Mitchell, James Van Der Beek, Ally Brooke, and Lauren Alaina all tied with a 27 out of 30. The judges' scoring has been criticized this season.
