It was frontrunner Zendaya who had the surprise slip-up on Monday night’s Dancing with the Stars semi-finals, but at the end of the evening, it was Ingo Rademacher who ended up at the bottom of the leader board.

With the three other remaining contestants ending the night with near perfect scores, Rademacher, whom judge Carrie Ann Inaba called “the underdog,” was at a disadvantage with a mere 51 points out of 60 for his and partner Kym Johnson’s samba and Charleston.

On Tuesday, during DWTS’s 300th episode, did Rademacher get the boot? Or was there a surprise elimination?

Sure enough, it was Rademacher and Johnson, after all.

“This has been an amazing experience. I thought I’d be done after two weeks,” he admits. “Kym has choreographed the most amazing routines … I’ve really got a ballroom frame now.”
