The ABC hit reality show Dancing With The Stars revealed yet another elimination during Tuesday night’s show. The couples in the bottom four slots this week were not the usual suspects. In fact, each of them has previously been at the top of the leaderboard.

Hanging in suspense and in jeapardy were Joanna Krupa & Derek Hough, Aaron Carter & Karina Smirnoff, Melissa Joan Hart & Mark Ballas and Natalie Coughlin & Alec Mazo.

In the end, it was the Olympic swimmer Coughlin who got the boot. She had shown grace and poise during her run on the show but the judges hammered away on her each week regarding her inability to get into the character, especially in a romantic context.

The 27-year-old was gracious in defeat. View more photos and the elimination video below.
