FORMER Bachelor Matt James was surprisingly eliminated from Dancing With The Stars on Tuesday.
It makes the former football player the lowest performing contestant from the Bachelor franchise.
Matt, 29, was sent home during week four, Disney week, with his dance partner Lindsay Arnold.
Brian Austin Green also exited the show with partner and real-life girlfriend Sharna Burgess.
They came in last place with 52 out of 80 for their Snow White and Pirates of the Caribbean themed dances.
Matt and Lindsay came 12th for their routines inspired by The Incredibles and The Jungle Book.
Matt’s exit makes him the worst performing Bachelor Nation star on the dance competition.
Bachelorettes Hannah Brown won DWTS in 2019 and Kaitlyn Bristowe won in 2020.
Bachelor and Bachelor Pad star Melissa Rycroft competed in 2009 but was voted off 11th week, coming 3rd place. She also starred in 2012 and won.
Jake Pavelka starred 2010, getting voted of in the 6th week. Sean Lowe competed in 2013 and was voted off in the 8th week. Chris Soules appeared in 2015 and exited during week 8.
Nick Viall was voted off in the 7th week in 2017. Grocery Store Joe Amabile competed in 2018 and was voted off in the 8th week.
One person who performed worse than Matt, was former Bachelorette Trista Sutter, who got booted off in the 2nd week, however, that was season one of DWTS, in 2005.
Fans took to Twitter to express their shock at Matt’s elimination.
One fan wrote: “For the first time ever, I’m upset I won’t be seeing Matt James on my TV next week.”
“I can’t believe they sent home Matt James! He’s waaaaay more entertaining than the housewife (I don’t watch the shows so I have no idea who she is lol).” came another comment.
Another upset fan wrote: “I’m so pissed! Matt James deserves to stay. I hate this!”
“Didn’t think he’d win the show but Matt James’ elimination tonight was surprising.” one tweet read.
“Wow I’m not a huge Matt James fan but that was some major BS picking Kenya over him.” someone else chimed in.
