Natalie Coughlin swims better than she dances. The Olympian, eliminated from Tuesday’s episode of Dancing with the Stars, told RadarOnline.com that a lack of love from the judges hastened her exit from the program.
Coughlin, a two-time Gold medalist for swimming, was partnered with Alec Mazo; she received 22 out of 30 possible points for her Paso Doble dance Monday.
“They gave us crappy scores, so what did they expect?” a dejected Coughlin, 27, told RadarOnline.com’s Tina Malave. “This has been my life for the past two weeks … I’m not ready to go home yet.”
Mazo was equally upset over the premature elimination, echoing identical sentiments.
“Clearly, you take it personally,” he said. “I really wasn’t ready to go home yet.”
Dancing With The Stars airs Monday at 8/7c and Tuesday at 9/8c on ABC.
