He’s won her support! Rachael Kirkconnell doesn’t agree with the judges’ decision to boot Matt James and Lindsay Arnold from Dancing With the Stars, and she’s not afraid to say so.
“What the hell, guys?” Right now, I’m sitting at home. I was just in Los Angeles for a few hours. I took a red eye yesterday night at approximately 1 a.m., arrived this morning, and am disappointed. I’m just upset because I didn’t realize last night was going to be my final night in L.A. for a while,” Kirkconnell, 25, revealed on Wednesday, October 13 via her Instagram Stories. “I was expecting to be back in a week.” There’s no reason to be right now.” The graphic designer said she was “very disappointed” to see James, 29, and Arnold, 27, voted off on Tuesday, October 12, after head judge Len Goodman chose to save Kenya Moore and Brandon Armstrong.
“I simply want to commend Matt and Lindsay on their outstanding performance. “I’m glad I was able to be there to watch them do their thing, and I adore them both,” she continued. “I wanted to see more of them, and I believe they deserved to be treated better.” “I simply observed how close they both worked every single day and I don’t think their adventure was ended yet,” the former season 25 Bachelor candidate commented one of the videos. Kirkconnell wasn’t the only one upset to see the North Carolina native leave the ballroom. Many viewers were surprised on Tuesday when James and the So You Think You Can Dance graduates were sent home after their performance during Disney Villains night received a 31 out of 40.
