The 32-year-old actress and singer and her pro partner, Alan Bersten, were sent packing during the Oct. 4 Latin night episode after scoring a 16 for their cha-cha.
Meanwhile, singer-songwriter Jason Mraz and Marvel star Xochitl Gomez -- along with their respective pro partners, Daniella Karagach and Val Chmerkovskiy -- tied for the top spot of the leaderboard with scores of 24.

Spears reflects on her 'DWTS' experience
After her elimination, Spears said the thing she will miss the most about being on the show is "working with Alan."
"I'm proud of you," Bersten said as he hugged Spears.
Spears added that there were "a lot of great parts" about taking part on "DWTS," but said the best was "meeting everybody and learning so much and doing something I never thought I would do in my entire life."
Judge Derek Hough called Spears' elimination "quite surprising" and "a shocker, honestly."
On social media following the episode, Spears called Bersten "the absolute best friend and partner that anyone could ever ask for."
She added, "I got to raise some money for my #SAGAFTRA community and meet some of the most amazing ppl, and That's a win by all accounts in what I set out to do."
Spears called it "an amazing experience" and wished her "fabulous" fellow competitors well as they "continue to KILL it each week!!!!!"
Top scores of the night
As previously mentioned, Mraz and Gomez took the top spots of the night for their respective dances. Mraz and Karagach stunned with their rumba to "Quizás, Quizás, Quizás" by Andrea Bocelli featuring Jennifer Lopez while Gomez and Chmerkovskiy wowed with a salsa to "Don't Go Yet" by Camila Cabello.
"Last week felt like being shot out of a cannon," Mraz said during rehearsal, saying he was "elated" with the results from the premiere.
Karagach pointed out that this week's routine brought a new challenge for them since the style is a slower dance that leaves "a lot of room for error" as opposed to last week's high-energy routine.
"Week one, we set a high bar," Mraz said. "Now there's this expectation that we're great and I don't know if I am."
Coming close behind were "Bachelorette" alum Charity Lawson and Ezra Sosa -- who was filling in for Artem Chigvintsev after he tested positive for COVID-19 -- and social media star Lele Pons and Brandon Armstrong, who scored 21s for their cha-cha and samba, respectively.
Lowest scores of the night
Spears, despite being eliminated, was not the lowest scoring celebrity of the night. That spot belonged to real estate broker Mauricio Umansky, husband of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Kyle Richards, whose salsa with pro partner Emma Slater earned him a 12.
Umansky said during rehearsal he was "extremely disappointed" to be in the bottom two last week and that he felt "the pressure is on to deliver" or else he'd get the boot.
"Week one was intense. I was really down. Learning how to dance has been an absolutely incredible thing for me right now with everything I'm going through at home," he said.
Slater told him they needed to "keep pushing forward" and put their heart and soul out there in order to stage a comeback.
In a three-way tie for the spot above Umansky were NFL star Adrian Peterson and Britt Stewart, "The Brady Bunch" alum Barry Williams and Peta Murgatroyd and reality star and social personality Harry Jowsey and Rylee Arnold all scoring 15s for their dance routines.
