The Queer Eye star and Jenna landed in the bottom two along with actress Kate Flannery and partner Pasha Pashkov based on the combination of judges' scores from Monday night and the home-viewer votes cast live as Dancing with the Stars aired in the Eastern and Central time zones on ABC.
Carrie Ann voted to save Karamo and Jenna and then Bruno voted to keep Kate and Pasha in the competition. Len therefore determined he wanted to see Kate and Pasha perform again next week.
Prior to Karamo and Jenna's ouster, each celebrity and professional pairing performed a Halloween-inspired routine followed by a spooky "Team Dance" group performance.
The "Team Dance" scores added on to each couple's individual score.
It was a tough night of competition, as three celebrities and their pro partners tied for first place on the judges' leaderboard with a total score of 54 out of 60 points from the Dancing with the Stars judges.
The three celebrities were actor James Van Der Beek, pop star and Fifth Harmony member Ally Brooke, and country music star and former American Idol runner-up Lauren Alaina.
James and partner Emma Slater first danced a Viennese waltz to "I Put a Spell On You" by Annie Lennox that received 27 out of 30 points from the judges.
The couple then followed that up with a "Team Trick" dance to "Somebody's Watching Me" by Rockwell that earned them an additional 27 out of 30 judges' points.
Ally and partner Sasha Farber initially danced a tango routine inspired by the movie Suicide Squad that received 27 points from the judges.
