Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is eliminated from "Dancing with the Stars"
The "Jersey Shore" star gets sent home

The contestants and judges on the hit reality competition series “Dancing with the Stars” definitely got into the Halloween spirit in last night’s episode.  For this week’s round two challenge, the contestants split up into two set teams and did dances that where so scary good, they gave the judges goose bumps. Unfortunately, the killer performances during the team up challenge couldn’t save one them from elimination. The star who got the axe this week was 25 year old Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, along with her partner Sasha Farber.  

Nicole was holding back tears and could barely speak after receiving the news of her elimination. She later commented that she loved the people on the show and that she didn’t think she was ready to go home just yet. She also said that the experience had been amazing and that it sucks that she has to leave.

During previous interviews on the show, Nicole had told the host that when she’s on the dance floor she is like a Chihuahua or squirrel monkey and just wants to “attack it”. Despite the difficulties of the routines, she loved the dances.  She had been awarded a good amount of points from the judges for all her past performances, but just didn’t get enough votes from the viewers to be able to continue for another week.

You can see Nicole’s last dance on the show in the video below. She was part of team “Spooky Boom Boom” along with Sasha Farber, Elizabeth Berkley, Val Chmerkovskiy, Leah Remini, Tony Dovolani, Bill Engvall, and Emma Slater. Together they did a Halloween inspired dance routine complete with zombie costumes and a graveyard set.  When you look at the video, it’s clear that they all had a good time with their spooky holiday theme. As judge Bruno put it, it was a “ghoulish extravaganza”.  With dances as entertaining as this one, it’s no wonder that Nicole didn’t want to leave.
