Despite being at the bottom of the leaderboard for three consecutive weeks, Cheryl Ladd and Louise Van Amstel are surprised and sad to leave DWTS.
Season 31 Dancing With The Stars contestants and Charlie’s Angels star Cheryl Ladd and co-star Louis Van Amstel may have been at the bottom of the leaderboard for the past three weeks, but they were surprised when they were eliminated from Bond’s night.
They were safe in Week 1 but found themselves in the bottom two in Week 2 on Elvis Night with The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa Giudice and Pasha Paskov.
But their luck ran out on Bond Night, when they scored 24 points on their Roomba leading in “Diamonds Are Forever”. Despite finishing second on the leaderboard, one step ahead of Jersey Shore’s Vinny Guadagnino and Coco Iwasaki, they found themselves in the bottom two with Good Morning America contributor Sam Champion and co-host Cheryl Burke. This time the jury unanimously decided to send Cheryl and Louis home.
In an interview with TV Insider, Cheryl admitted that she and Louis were “a little surprised” by their DWTS elimination on Bond Night. Lewis said, “It’s a reality show, but our emotions are also real. I didn’t expect this.” Cheryl added, “Not tonight.” Lewis said he was “disappointed” because “Cheryl’s nerves were gone”. Having been in the bottom two the previous week, he overcame his negative emotions and recovered.
Louis was confident he and Cheryl would advance to the Disney+ round of DWTS and had plans for their next dance. They could have foxtrotted in Pinocchio’s “When You Wish Upon a Star.” “We’ll see someone else do it,” Cheryl said, trying to keep a positive attitude. Cheryl and Louis are also looking forward to the final night, when couples often return to DWTS for the final dance. When asked if she would participate, Cheryl replied with a smile, “Of course.”
While many of the stars of Season 31 of DWTS are breaking ground–including Selma Blair, who is battling multiple sclerosis; Daniel Durant, who is deaf; and Shangela, who is the first drag performer to compete on DWTS–at 71, Cheryl doesn’t get much attention for being the oldest performer. She is ten years older than the next youngest competitor, 61-year-old Sam.Cheryl appeared to be drinking from the Fountain of Youth as she competed gracefully against competitors much older than her.
While it would be nice to see Cheryl and Louise’s elegant moves for another week, Cheryl is still proud of what she accomplished on DWTS. She brought beauty and grace to the ballroom. Cheryl glided down like a true angel from Dancing with the Stars.
