Lindsay Arnold On Jenna Johnson's Elimination From DWTS: 'It Was Really Tough'

Lindsay Arnold On Jenna Johnson's Elimination From DWTS: 'It Was Really Tough'

Lindsay Arnold has been friends with Jenna Johnson since she was in elementary school — so it’d be an understatement to say that she was upset over Jenna and her partner Jake T. Austin being eliminated from Dancing With The Stars.

“Last night was honestly one of the first eliminations where I felt like I had no idea who was going to go home. The first week is always so tough, because everyone is doing the best they can, but you don’t necessarily know how they’re coming off to the viewers. It’s hard to gauge that the first week,” the 22-year-old dancer shared with ET.

She added, “Seeing Jake and Jenna go was really tough, because Jenna is one of my closest friends (we’ve been friends since kindergarten and dancing together forever!), and this is her first season as a pro, but they did their absolute best. You never know the true reason for the week one couple that gets eliminated because there’s so little time for them to really show America who they are and what they’re going to bring to the competition.”

Lindsay continued, “It’s tough as a pro not to take things too personally, because it becomes your entire life. When Jenna gets back to L.A. — she was whisked away to New York to film Good Morning America immediately after eliminations — I know we’ll actually be able to sit down and talk more about it.”

Jake T. Austin On His 'DWTS' Elimination: 'I Wish I Could've Done Better'

Jake T. Austin and Jenna Johnson talk to the hosts of Dancing With The Stars after being the first couple eliminated from the competition on Tuesday night (September 20) in Los Angeles.

The team — Team JSquared — said goodbye to the ballroom floor after being put in jeopardy along with Ryan Lochte, Maureen McCormick and Amber Rose.

“I wish I could’ve done better. I mean, there’s mixed emotions. Overall I’m really lucky, I’m really happy,” Jake shared with EOnline afterwards. “Just a little bummed out, other than that this was an awesome experience.”

He added about his experiences, “This was my worst fear to be honest with you. When we were standing on that stage I was like, ‘Please don’t let it be me.’ And it happened. You prepare for the worst, hope for the best. It was the opportunity of a lifetime. Learning from Jenna was an unforgettable experience and I mean that in every sense of the word. It was incredible.”

“It’s not as easy as it looks. It’s obviously a way to test yourself…I’m really happy I got out there and I did it.”

Jenna Johnson Makes a Deal With Jake T. Austin - Read Her 'DWTS' Week Two Blog!

Every week, professional dancer Jenna Johnson will be writing a blog for JustJaredJr.com and sharing exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from Dancing With the Stars Season 23.

For week two, Jenna opened up to JJJ about her partnership with Jake T. Austin and their Cha Cha:

“Week 2… Diego was sooooo fuego!!” Jenna writes. “What a whirlwind this week was. Jake and I had the challenge of bringing his animated childhood TV character, Diego, into a real life Cha Cha-ing Diego! Our goal was to make it the 2.0 version… A little more mature and a whole lot sexier. I played the role of Baby Jaguar and I have to give it to the wardrobe department who literally slayed the design! My outfit was absolutely incredible.”

Jenna continues, “This week’s rehearsals were a blast. Getting into character was soooo much fun. Jake kept doing his young Diego voice while we were practicing and every time he did, I was rolling on the floor laughing. It was scary how good he was at that voice still. The Cha Cha came very natural to Jake so that made this week so enjoyable because I got to see him improve day by day! But we both felt pressure because we were tied for the second lowest score last week. I was pretty tough on him because I really wanted him to get better, but I think I was a little too hard on him one day so I brought him a peace offering cake to remind him how much I really do love him!!”
