The Jersey Shore and Snooki & Jwoww star and Farber became the fifth couple eliminated from the competition based on the combination of the Dancing with the Stars judges' scores they had received during the last two weeks of performance shows and the home viewer votes that were cast following last Monday night's episode.

"I can't even talk right now. I love everybody here, so it sucks," Polizzi said in tears following her ouster. 

Monday night's show featured the eight remaining couples dancing two rounds of competition, with the first being a typical individual routine and the second being a "team dance." For the "team dance," the contestants were divided into two teams of four couples to each perform their own epic freestyle routine, which was scored up to 30 points from judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli.

"Team FoxingAwesome" was comprised of Disney Channel star Corbin Bleu and partner Karina Smirnoff, actor and Pretty Little Liars star Brant Daugherty and partner Peta Murgatroyd, Glee star Amber Riley and partner Derek Hough, and former The Osbournes and Armed & Famous star Jack Osbourne and partner Cheryl Burke. The team scored an extra 30 points to add to each of its members' individual scores.

"Team SpookyBomBom" was comprised of Polizzi and Farber, actress and former Step It Up and Dance host Elizabeth Berkley and partner Val Chmerkovskiy, comedian Bill Engvall and partner Emma Slater, and former The Talk co-host Leah Remini and partner Tony Dovolani. The team members earned 27 points to add to their initial scores.

Polizzi and Farber finished tied for fifth place on Monday night's combined two-week leaderboard with 84 out of 94 possible points from the Dancing with the Stars judges. They received 27 points for their samba routine last night in addition to SpookyBomBom's 27 points. Last week, the pair scored a total of 30 points.

Tied with Polizzi and Farber were Osbourne and Burke. The pair danced a jive that received 27 points from the judges and added those points to their "team dance" score of 30 and last week's score of 27 points.

Engvall and Slater were the other couple still in danger of elimination prior to Polizzi and Farber's ouster, although Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron and co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet didn't reveal whether Engvall and Slater were actually one of the bottom-two couples or not based on the combination of the judges' scores and America's vote.

Engvall and Slater landed in eighth -- and last -- place on the judges' leaderboard with 74 total points. In addition to their 27 "team dance" points, they earned 23 points for their quickstep routine. The couple received a total of 24 points last week.

Riley and Hough claimed first place on the combined two-week leaderboard with 91 total points. They received 29 points for their paso doble last night, 30 points for their "FoxingAwesome" routine, and 32 points for last week's performances.

Second place on Monday night's leaderboard went to Daugherty and Murgatroyd with 88 total points. Combined with the 31 points the couple earned last week, Daugherty and Murgatroyd received 27 points for a jive in addition to the 30 "team dance" points.

Third place represented a tie between Berkley and Chmerkovskiy and Bleu and Smirnoff after both couples earned a total of 86 points. Berkley and Chmerkovskiy danced a quickstep worthy of 27 points and the "team dance" worth the same amount of points. They added those scores to their score of 32 points from last week.

Remini and Dovolani finished in seventh place on the combined two-week leaderboard with a total of 81 points. They earned 26 points for their salsa dance. Their salsa points were added to their "SpookyBomBom" score of 27 and last week's total score of 28 points.
