Nikki Glaser has been booted from Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) Season 27 after making an inappropriate joke on Tuesday night’s live results show. 

Before her elimination, the comedian told host Tom Bergeron that she’d had “a lot of rejection in my life and a lot of rough sets.” The audience responded in groans to Glaser’s comment, then Bergeron reiterated that Glaser had said “rough sets,” not rough “sex.”

Glaser was eliminated from DWTS for her weak Monday night performance, where she earned a score of 17 out of 30 after getting an 18 out of 30 for salsa on the DWTS elimination round on Tuesday. 

After getting the bad news with her partner Gleb Savchenko, Glaser said, “I hope that I just proved that I did the scariest thing I’ve ever done, and I tried my best. I’m gonna cry. It was so fun. Thank you for having me.”

Other lowest-scoring duos include gymnast Mary Lou Retton, blind Paralympian Danelle Umstead, model Alexis Ren, and former Facts of Life star Nancy McKeon.

After Glaser’s departure from the show, all of the remaining stars and their pro partners moved onto next week’s competition, including fan favorite, Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider and pro partner Emma Slater.

After the show, Slater told Fox News, “I was worried [about elimination night]…I was just really proud of him. People don’t realize how charming he is and how much he wants to be here. He has an appreciation for dance and is so willing to learn and I’ve been having a blast with him.”

During the show, viewers also learned about DWTS: Junior Stars a spinoff from DWTS, which will include Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson and Bristol Palin‘s son, Tripp Johnston.

During the introductions, the kids performed a group dance and later the Juniors cast member Mackenzie Ziegler, sister of “Dance Moms” Maddie Ziegler performed a song. 

DWTS: Junior Stars will premiere on ABC on Sunday, October 7.
