People: Sean Spicer Shared His Thoughts on Elimination from DWTS
Sean Spicer has spoken out about his elimination from "Dancing with the Stars," and his reaction is quite understandable.
Monday night on "Dancing with the Stars" saw Sean Spicer get eliminated, after surviving nine weeks, and making it to the quarter-finals. Opening up to People, he said he has mixed reactions about leaving the dance competition.
While Spicer feels relieved, he is also a tad disappointed that his journey came to an end. However, he understands the judges' decision to let him go, saying,
"The judges made the right decision on a night where you had two dances. The scores were going to be very difficult to understand."
The former White House Press Secretary expressed his gratitude to his fans, who kept him on DWTS even when the judges wanted to kick him out. He said:
"There's been a tremendous amount of support that has kept me from the bottom two the last nine weeks, and I've truly been humbled by how many people have taken their time out of their Monday nights to keep me going."
Spicer added that he would look back on his time on DWTS as a fantastic experience. On this week's live show, the eliminated contestant was at the bottom two with the country singer, Lauren Alaina, and judges, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli, voted the 48-year-old male out.
Last week, Spicer, who has been dancing for two weeks with Jenna Johnson after his pro dance partner, Lindsay Arnold, left the show due to a family emergency, faced a lot of criticism for surviving elimination.

The head judge, Len Goodman, also expressed his disappointment, saying the audience kept giving Spicer a lifeline. Wendy Williams also joined the conversation, pointing out during her show's "Hot Topics" that it was more of a popularity contest than who dances better.
Sadly, the audience could not keep Spicer longer on DWTS, and while the show goes on, the former public servant will forge ahead with his life, and the opportunities ahead of him.
