Ryan Lochte’s elimination in DWTS: Was it a graceful exit?


Following Ryan Lochte's elimination in "Dancing with the Stars" week eight on Monday night, various rumors emerged that the swimmer did not take his loss so well as opposed to what he portrayed on camera.

It was during DWTS Halloween Show when Lochte was eliminated as he only scored 23 out of 30 in his tango number. Last week, the judges were not also impressed with his rumba number with just a score of 28 out of a perfect score of 40.

So how did the controversial swimmer take his loss? According to Radar Online, Ryan 'freaked out' as he is confident that he will not be eliminated in the show. To show his bad mood, the swimmer 'snapped at one of the producers' and did not say thank you or goodbye to the people in the backstage.

Lochte first made headlines when he was found out to have lied in his account of being robbed during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. Bad luck followed him in the first tapings of the show when protesters attacked him urging the management to boycott his appearance in the show.

Ryan's partner, Cheryl Burke (a seasoned dancer in the show), however, has some positive things to say about the athlete saying he is one of her favorites. In an interview, Burke even said that Ryan is in her top 5 list and is 'awesome to work with,' as reported in ABC.

Burke even claimed that she knows the 'real Ryan Lochte' and had expressed her willingness to help him in 'whatever they are going through.'

Meanwhile, after his exit from DWTS, the athlete has reportedly proposed to his girlfriend, sexy former Playboy model Kayla Rae Reid. 

Because of his elimination, Ryan can now focus on his wedding and will be allotting nine to ten months for their big day. The time frame coincides his period of suspension from swimming after the Rio Scandal. The athlete is also not given permit to join the 2017 world championships.
