Diana Nyad eliminated from ‘Dancing With the Stars’; fans not surprised

True Dancing With the Stars fans could have guessed the first elimination of the show with their eyes closed, one hand tied behind their back all the while hanging upside down. That is right, Diana Nyad was the first so-called celebrity eliminated from the reality show. According to Zap2it on Monday, she is one of two stars who are going home as they didn’t get a big enough score from the judges and votes from viewers combined. Perhaps this sounds mean, but this decision was a no-brainer.

Fans of DWTS know the pecking order of how the stars usually drop off. Anyone not related to the entertainment business or dances on the ballroom poorly usually is kicked to the curb first. Last week, Diana Nyad had both things not going for her and there was plenty of discussion on her status of being celebrity. Unfortunately this meant nobody voted for her putting her scores on the bottom of the leaderboard.

For Diana Nyad, she has to assume this is a big accomplishment for her even though this is her last performance. Not only did she get herself to a national platform so people can hear about her swimming records, she fulfilled dream to dance.
