Perfection doesn't earn anyone gold medals. "Dancing With the Stars" contestant and Olympian Simone Biles was eliminated last week from ABC's dance reality series, leaving most of her fans heartbroken - and pissed too. She was partnered with professional dancer Sasha Farber in season 24 of the series, where they were both eliminated a week before the finals, placing fourth. Fans were already looking forward to see them in the final round until they were shocked by the decision on Monday night's elimination.

After Biles' elimination from "Dancing With the Stars," fans can't help but believe that it was manipulated as they know that the Olympic Gold Medalist has earned perfect scores from the judges. The Olympian got a perfect score of 80 from a score of 40 in Jive and another 40 in Rumba, which confuses most of her fans why she was eliminated. While the judges' scores actually matter, the viewers' votes are important too.

Basing on the judges' scores given on each four remaining "Dancing With the Stars" contestants, three of them including Simone Biles, Normani Kordei and Rashad Jennings would compete in the final round. This means that David Ross should've been the one eliminated last week. However, the Olympian was the one eliminated instead.

Los Angeles Times believes that it was the smile exchange that got Biles eliminated from "Dancing With the Stars" last week. During the Olympian's judging, host Tom Bergeron tried to butt in and commented that Biles did not smile. "I was waiting for you to smile at some of the compliments; you didn't," he said. When the host said this, Biles allegedly retorted sharply, which created a bad impression to the viewers.

Baseball player David Ross was obviously surprised that he was kept in "Dancing With the Stars" instead of Biles. As CDL points out, the Chicago Cubs should be the one to blame for having Ross in the dance competition for so long. The final round will be aired on ABC on May 22 and the winner will be announced the following day. Stay tuned.
