It was one quick step she wasn’t expecting – right off the stage and out the door.

Kristin Cavallari told reporters on Tuesday, after her shocking elimination from Dancing with the Stars, that she didn’t see it coming.

“I was a little [surprised], to be honest,” she said. “I’m a little sad. It’s sad, you know? I’m having so much fun, and I thought I was going to be around for at least a couple more weeks.”

Asked why she thought she and Mark Ballas were voted off, the former Hills star was at a loss.

“I don’t know,” she said. “Maybe it’s like what Tom [Bergeron] said. Everybody thought we’d be safe, so they voted for other people? Maybe the audience didn’t like our dances after all. I’m not sure.”
