Mass Appeal Wire Reports
LOS ANGELES — Olympic superstar Simone Biles got the boot on Monday night’s episode of “Dancing with the Stars” and nobody saw it coming, including the audience, contestants and the show’s quartet of judges – Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba and Julianne Hough. “I am in absolute shock,” said co-host Erin Andrews. “Unreal. I’m shocked.” Viewers were treated to a Battle Royale between the final four celebrities – Simone, David Ross, Rashad Jennings and Normani Kordei.

But, in the end, it was the 20-year-old gymnast who drew the short end of the stick. “The couple leaving right now is — Simone and Sasha,” said co-host Tom Bergeron who’s announcement was met with moderate applause from a disappointed studio crowd. Despite being eliminated, Simone continued to display her signature million dollar smile.
“I’m just thankful to be at this competition. I feel like I’ve learned a lot about myself,” said Simone. “I’ve matured. And I can’t wait to go home and I’ll be back next week at the finale. I found out a lot about myself. I think today I experienced what they wanted. It felt refreshing. I did feel free, so I can’t ask anymore. We went out with a bang.”
“I’ve been going nonstop since the Olympics,” she continued. “I’m going to take time off, go on vacations, spend family time, friend time. I’m going to take some time and finally relax.”
