On Sunday night’s edition of Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars, Bridie Carter was sent home.
After losing a salsa dance-off to Anthony Koutoufides and his partner Jess Raffa, the television actress, 51, was courteous in her leave.
‘Thank you for having me,’ Bridie said, clearly happy to have had the opportunity to come back on the show.
She failed to thank her dance partner Craig for a brief minute before immediately saying, ‘Thank you, Craig.’
On Sunday, the bottom two couples were Bridie and her partner Craig, and Anthony Koutoufides and his partner Jess.
The couples were given the chore of dancing the salsa, and Anthony and Jess came out on top.
During the routine, Judge Mark Wilson applauded the couple’s ‘fun and vitality.’
‘It was the efforts that led to the fun, excitement, and lifts,’ Mark added, before adding that the two had the most ‘original’ routine.
The round was dubbed “brutal” by judge Helen Richey because both stars were past series champions. Bridie won the series in 2007, whereas Anthony had won the year before.
‘This is absolutely brutal as both of you are winners of the previous series,’ Helen said.
‘[But] we have to judge on what you did now, not what you did earlier.’
Todd was asked who he would have selected despite not initially providing feedback, and he said, Anthony and Jess.
The judges stated before the performance that they needed lots of enthusiasm and urged the couples not to be ‘too technical.’
‘It’s not a really technical dance. It’s about music and rotation,’ Helen said.
‘This dance is about the mood and the fun of it all,’ Todd added.
