'DWTS' Elimination Shocker: Simone Biles Ousted After Perfect 10s

The "DWTS" elimination of Olympic gymnast Simone Biles on Monday shocked the judges and cohost Erin Andrews as the reality competition show whittled its way down to the final three dance pairs.

Biles, the gold medal-winning gymnast, had been seen as one of the favorites to win after the "Dancing With the Stars" judges gave her and professional dance partner Sasha Farber two perfect scores for their Monday dance routines, according to People magazine.

"I am in absolute shock," Andrews said while judges Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough, and Len Goodman expressed some sign of surprise from their judging area.

Elimination decisions are made based on a combination of judges' scores and viewer votes.

The "DWTS" elimination leaves former baseball player David Ross, NFL star Rashad Jennings, and singer Normani Kordei in the finals.

"[Biles'] elimination comes as one of many shock eliminations this season," wrote Justin Kirkland for USA Today. "After Heather [Morris] and Nancy [Kerrigan's] departures, it was almost certain that Simone would make the final considering her place in the final four. But half of the decision relies on America's vote, and even after a perfect 80 from the judge's, David Ross' votes outweighed Biles.'"

"For die-hard fans, it's reminiscent of Brandy's exit back in season 11. The only formidable option to take out fan-favorite Jennifer Grey, Brandy left in the final four after a near-perfect run on the show. The science and math of 'DWTS'? Well, it just doesn't make sense sometimes," Kirkland continued.

Biles signed off on Twitter.

Some, though, cried foul over Biles' departure.
