Peta Murgatroyd is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 14 – only her second season on the series – with Donald Driver. The Australia native will be blogging for PEOPLE.com about competing with Gilles Marini in the current all-star season.
I said before that I didn’t think perfect 30s would come until closer to the end of the season, but I definitely wasn’t surprised this week. Those dances were absolutely incredible, and the couples deserved those points.
I was so sad to see Sabrina [Bryan] and Louis [Van Amstel] go home. It was awful. It was just insane and mind-boggling to think that they – plus Karina [Smirnoff] and Apolo [Ohno], who also had a perfect score – were at the bottom. Sabrina was the last person who I thought would go home. She’s such an amazing, talented dancer. It just shows that you need the fans more than ever this season.
