The boxer and Lindsay became the fifth couple eliminated from the competition based on the combination of the Dancing with the Stars judges' scores they had received during Monday night's performance show and the home viewer votes that were cast afterwards.

"I don't take nothing back. I had a blast. I made great friends, including you guys, you beautiful people. So at the end of the day, it was a heck of an experience, and hopefully these beautiful people will follow me to my next world championship title belt -- along with Cast 16, ringside. It's been a blast. I'm happy to get this far. I definitely needed some dance moves," Victor said following his ouster. 

In addition to dancing their individual routines, Monday night's show featured the competition's eight remaining couples being divided into two groups for a "team dance" in which one team worked together to perform a samba routine and the other danced a paso doble. Each dance was eligible to receive up to 30 possible points -- which would be added to each contestant's individual score of up to 30 points -- from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

Victor and Lindsay finished in eighth -- and last -- place at the bottom of Monday night's leaderboard with 40 out of 60 possible points after they danced an individual rumba routine that received 18 points from the judges and the "Team Paso" dance which earned 22 points.

The Bachelor star Sean Lowe and partner Peta Murgatroyd were the other couple still in danger of elimination prior to Victor and Lindsay's ouster, as both pairs were revealed by Brooke Burke-Charvet to be the bottom-two couples based on the combination of the judges' scores and America's vote.

Sean and Peta tied for fourth place on the leaderboard with soap star Ingo Rademacher and partner Kym Johnson after both couples earned 46 total points. 

Sean and Peta earned 25 points from the judges for their "Team Samba" dance and 21 points for their individual samba routine. Ingo and Kym originally danced a tango routine worthy of 24 points and then followed it with their "Team Paso" dance, which added 22 points to their individual score.

Former American Idol finalist and country singer Kellie Pickler and partner Derek Hough finished in first place with 54 points on the leaderboard following their two routines. Kellie and Derek's individual quickstep received 29 points from the judges. They also performed a dance with "Team Samba" that earned 25 additional points.

Alexandra "Aly" Raisman, a 2012 Olympic gold medal winning gymnast, and partner Mark Ballas finished second on the leaderboard with 52 total points. They danced a foxtrot which received 27 points and followed it with their "Team Samba" dance that earned 25 points from the judges.

Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman and partner Val Chmerkovskiy finished in third place on the judges' leaderboard with 51 total points. After dancing a cha cha that earned 29 points, Zendaya and Val returned to the dance floor and performed a paso doble with their team that received 22 points from the judges.

Sixth place went to NFL football player Jacoby Jones and partner Karina Smirnoff. The pair danced an individual quickstep routine which received 23 points from the judges and the "Team Paso" performance that earned them an extra 22 points. They walked away from the night with 45 total points.

Actor and comedian Andy Dick and partner Sharna Burgess finished seventh on the judges' leaderboard with 43 total points. They performed an individual samba which received 18 points from the judges and the "Team Samba" that earned 25 additional points.
