A lot happened on the special Halloween-themed episode of Dancing With the Stars on October 28. Queer Eye star Karamo Brown and Jenna Johnson were sadly sent home after they brought the heat with their spooky Paso Doble to Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor.” Besides an elimination, Hannah Brown also received some tough criticism from the judges after many of the other couples killed it.

Karamo and Jenna scored a 25 for their last dance but had a few visible mistakes. Bruno Tonioli noticed that the Netflix star started out on the wrong foot and Len Goodman noted that he should work on his “shaping.” All in all, the dance was spicy and perfectly themed for the evening, but the pair was sent packing after landing in the bottom two with Kate Flannery and Pasha Pashkov.
The judges were blown away by The Office alum’s rumba to “I Want to Fall in Love” while dressed as Little Red Riding Hood. “You’ve inspired some of the other professionals to give me proper, authentic routines,” Len raved about the duo.
Hannah took a bit of a tumble on the leaderboard. She and Alan Bersten gave it their all for their jazz routine to “Bad Girls” by Donna Summer, but Carrie Ann Inaba said she thought “something was lacking” with the former Bachelorette star.
“You are disconnected from the movements. I need you to give your heart. You look and then you look away. You’re not really staying in it,” Carrie explained to the Alabama beauty. “It’s almost like there’s a bit of shyness in you; you almost close off to the dance. I want you to stay open. We want to get to know you through the dance. We want to see layers that nobody has seen before and I know it’s hard to do but, I swear, if you open up and let it go raw out here, we will be here for you.”
Surprisingly, her partner agreed about the issue. “I think, honestly, it’s so accurate. Hannah is incredible but she’s a bit insecure and I’ve been working so hard to get it. She has no reason to be insecure,” he confessed. “She is such a beautiful, hardworking person.” Aw, that’s some sweet partner love.
The reality babe later participated in a group dance with her costars James Van Der Beek, Ally Brooke and Lauren Alaina where Carrie saw noticeable improvement. Hannah shed a few tears and admitted that she’s a reality star simply doing her best.
The top couples of the night — who all tied with a score of 27 — were Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson, James and Emma Slater, Ally and Sasha Farber and Lauren and Gleb Savchenko. The lowest score was an 18 and went to Sean Spicer and Lindsay Arnold, who are still holding on at the bottom of the leaderboard.
