Nikki Bella will never trust a prop Grim Reaper on any TV or movie set again. As the final minutes of a scary in a weird way Halloween episode of “Dancing With the Stars” came to a close, the Grim Reaper handed two cards to hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews.
As Tom had announced that Nikki and Artem Chigvintsev’s names were on the cards, as well as Vanessa Lachey and Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s name, he declared, “on this 7th week of competition, it is… a double elimination. You’re both going home.”
And just like that Nikki was voted off and she didn’t even have a chance to thank the fans or Artem.
The exit was most shocking because prior to Nikki and Artem’s jive, the pair had really been in sync. Plus, after this particular dance Bruno Tonioli said he was sure he’d see them next week. It wasn’t their best routine, but who can dance a solid jive in 2017 anyway?
Now, Nikki will be able to focus on her upcoming wedding to John Cena and her return to the wrestling ring as a WWE Diva. Or her retirement.
