Dancing with the Stars eliminee Kristin Cavallari has admitted that maybe the story she chose for this week's most memorable year theme wasn't the best choice.
The former Laguna Beach and Hills star chose 2005 as the most memorable year of her life because it was the year when she graduated from high school, moved to Los Angeles and had to choose between a career in showbusiness or going to college.
Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live after the results show which saw her sent home over Hope Solo, the reality star said: "Maybe I didn't have a good enough story. It's hard to compare with some of the most memorable years."
Jimmy Kimmel then ran through some of the other stories chosen by the cast, which included JR Martinez recounting the year he was severely injured by a landmine in Iraq, Rob Kardashian recalling his father's death and David Arquette remembering his marriage breakdown and dependence on drink.
However, professional dancer Mark Ballas, who was partnered with Cavallari, pointed out: "It was memorable years so usually you want to focus on the positive."
Cavallari, who had scored 24 out of a possible 30 points for her Monday night performance, told Kimmel that she was slightly surprised to have been eliminated so early in the competition, saying she felt she had shown progress.
"I thought I improved as the three weeks went on. It wasn't that big an amount of time but I think compared to the first week I definitely got better."
Ballas added: "The great thing about this show is that at the end of the day, it is the viewers' choice. We did have a good score. I personally felt Kristin was underscored a little bit but at the end of the day I'm really proud of her. I'm super bummed."
