The former 'Hills' star and her professional partner Mark Ballas got the boot from the show, despite earning 24 out of a possible 30 points for their samba to Beyonce's 'Crazy In Love' on Monday (03.10.11).
When she was told her fate, a shocked Kristin admitted she was surprised to be leaving the competition so early.
She said: "I'm a little surprised to be honest, I've had such a great time, and I've had an awesome experience, so it is what it is."
Kristin was placed in the bottom two with female soccer player Hope Solo, and head judge Len Goodman was not slow in condemning the public's decision.
He said: "It's Madness. This is truly crazy. My expectation was that these two couples would be fighting for the final."
Speaking after her elimination, Kristin insisted she had improved in the three weeks she had been on the series and believes viewers didn't warm to her because she didn't have a "sob story".
She said: "I thought I improved the three weeks I was on - and I thought compared to the first week I definitely got better.
"Maybe I didn't have a good enough story. Looking back maybe I should have done something a little better. Obviously I should have gone with a sob story."
