Barbara Corcoran will have to go back to her day job as an investor on Shark Tank because she was the first to be eliminated from Season 25 of Dancing With the Stars.
On the September 18th season premiere, the businesswoman, 68, along with her 27-year-old partner Keo Motsepe, failed to win over the judges with a salsa to Ludacris’ “Money Maker.” They earned a 14 out of 30, putting them in last place for Week 1.
The real estate mogul got into her grove a little more when she and Motsepe foxtrotted to “Whatever Lola Wants” last night. While, the judges complimented Corcoran’s ability to relax during her second number and gave them a better score of 17 out of 30 – it was not enough to advance them in the competition.
Their elimination came after Corcoran revealed her battle with dyslexia and its impact on her life. “I’m back at the bottom of class in second grade being the dunce,” Corcoran said after receiving her first low score. “I’ve been dyslexic my whole life. It definitely affects you. There’s always the stupid kid that made fun of [me]. I don’t want anybody to laugh.”
Barbara and Keo landed in the bottom alongside former NFL player Terrell Owens and dancer Cheryl Burke, who performed a steamy foxtrot to Zayn Malik’s “Pillowtalk.”
There was a 3-way tie for first place: Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold, Vanessa Lachey and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and Victoria Arlen and Val Chmerkovskiy all earned 24 out of 30.
