Shocking Elimination: Snooki Booted from Dancing With the Stars


Unfortunately, a Latina won't be the winner of season 17 of Dancing With The Stars!

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was eliminated from DWTS on Monday night, shocking judges who had given her overwhelmingly positive scores. 

“I’m happy and I’m grateful,” she told People, “The show showed a different side of me, the mother side of me. And this whole experience has been so amazing. Everybody on the show is so amazing. I love them.”

However, her disappointment was evident according to People, who reported the Chilean wiped away tears after learning of her elimination. “I’m really sad to say goodbye to everybody,” she admitted, “I just wasn’t ready to go yet.”
