Matt James and Lindsay Arnold Left ‘DWTS’ on a Technicality — and Fans Are Seriously Confused

As Matt James and Lindsay Arnold left the Dancing With the Stars ballroom, fans struggled to understand a strange rule that many didn’t even know existed. The ABC competition’s Disney Week ended with a heartbreaking double elimination on Tuesday, October 12, sending Brian Austin Green and Sharna Burgess packing, as well as the former Bachelor, 29, and his pro partner, 27.

However, viewers were confused as to why the latter pair went home after their villains dance number  which earned a 31 out of 40, giving them a two-day total score of 57 out of 80  and took to Twitter to express their dismay with the DWTS judging process.

Many were frustrated by the fact that Len Goodman chose to save The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Kenya Moore and her partner, Brandon Armstrong, over the North Carolina native and the So You Think You Can Dance alum, who received two votes from Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba, while the other pair received only one nod from Derek Hough.

The math just didn’t make sense to fans who pointed out that, after the judges’ votes, the competing couples were tied. “They should’ve just sent home the person who had the lowest amount,” one person tweeted. “That would’ve been the FAIR way. Len should not have gotten the final save”
