However, flipping their fins didn’t get them too far because the two were, unfortunately, the couple eliminated from the competition this week. “I knew that it was going to be amazing, but it totally blew my expectations away. I have had such an incredible time and I love everybody here. So, obviously, this is a very sad moment for me,” said Pieterse. She continued, “I’m just so thankful, and I’ve had such an amazing experience, and I’m grateful for the experience, and I’m so happy that I got to share my story, and I love everybody. So, thank you, thank you for voting.”
At the beginning of the season, Sasha shared her struggle with weight gain as a result of polycystic ovary syndrome, noting that she gained more than 70 pounds over the course of two years. However, just three weeks later, Sasha revealed that she has lost 37 pounds — and it’s all thanks to her partner’s dancing boot camp. So even though Sasha will no longer be part of your DWTS competition, she’s still leaving a winner.
