Simone Biles thought 'DWTS' pulled a 'Steve Harvey' upon shocking elimination

The Olympic gold-medal victor had previously faced criticism that she didn't smile enough, but the four judges still loved her - they had just given her and partner Sasha Farber flawless 10s on both their dances.

Miss Simone did a jive to "Faith" by Stevie Wonder featuring Ariana Grande, and then did a rumba to Demi Lovato's "Skyscraper", completely shutting down the house with her stunning performances, getting two ideal scores.

When asked by host Tom Bergeron why some of Inaba's more positive comments didn't elicit a smile, Biles replied "Smiling doesn't win you gold medals". "She's grown so much as a person and I wish she was in the finals, I wish she won this whole competition, and I wish the best for her".

The champion gymnast said she plans to enjoy the summer without dancing or gymnastics, "I'm definitely going to go on some family vacations, take some time off and be normal".

The three remaining couples are David Ross and Lindsay Arnold, Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater and Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy.

Rashad Jennings was the underdog from the start. "That dance was outstanding", Julianne gushed, while Carrie Ann praised their teamwork.

"Beautiful." Len said that Simone's footwork in the jive was "sharp, precise", and Carrie Ann tearfully said that in the rumba, Simone "put it all on the dance floor". And I'm getting better at dancing and I'm getting better scores.

"I've learned a lot about myself, I've matured, and I can't wait to go home", she said, laughing. "You are an absolute star", Julianne said. Goodman stood up and applauded her while Bruno Tonioli called her a diva and a star. "You were a torpedo in a tuxedo".

"I just know how hard this girl works", Farber added. "I think she's made a really strong case to be the victor this season, but we will see".

Next week is the big finale.

Speaking to ET Monday night, Kordei reacted to Biles' elimination, dishing, "She's got great spirits because she has no regrets, you know?"

While she seemed to handle the criticism with grace beyond her years, what the cameras couldn't show was what she felt on the inside.
