(LOS ANGELES) -- Romeo and Chelsie Hightower were one of the favorite couples on Dancing With the Stars this season, but they just missed their chance at being in the final four when they were eliminated on Tuesday's results show.
"I'm not surprised because the competition in here, it could be anybody could go at any time. But we went out with a bang," Romeo said after the results were announced. "This show has changed my life forever. I was terrified of dancing. I didn't dance at my own prom. I turned down a lot of movies because I was terrified of dancing ... I think I showed kids anything is possible if you try."
Throughout the season, judges had praised Romeo's dramatic improvement and commitment to the routines, and the actor and entertainer had received impressive scores.
