Drew Scott’s time on Dancing with the Stars came to an end on Monday (Nov 20) after the Canadian star danced his way to the finals. The 39-year-old finished strong, performing two captivating dances with his partner Emma Slater before learning of his elimination.
But the Property Brothers star didn’t go down without a fight. He was determined to redeem himself in the Paso Doble, a dance style he struggled with back in week six , and showcased his outgoing personality in an upbeat freestyle that was his best dance to date.
“Honestly, just to be in the final four means everything,” he told reporters after the show, before praising his dance partner for her help and patience throughout the whole experience. “I honestly didn’t think that I would make it here, and it’s all because of this gal right here. I couldn’t thank her enough!”
Before he took the floor for the last time, judge Bruno Tonioli dropped by rehearsals to give Drew some last minute tips, and it helped. His Paso Doblo was applauded by the judges, including guest judge Julianne Hough, who exclaimed, “What you did tonight was so confident!” The scores? All nines across the board for a total of 36/40.
Their second routine was a freestyle dance, choreographed to take the audience through Drew and Emma’s journey together. The duo had a blast as they danced their hearts out, making sure to show off their goofy personalities. Despite a nearly perfect score of 39/40 and Len Goodman declaring Drew the most improved dancer this season, the pair was forced to take their final bow.
It’s plain to see that Drew had a dancing king in him this entire time, aside from the rocky start! While the reality star has improved drastically throughout the weeks, his partner Emma said it best, “His heart has won him over more fans than people realize.” We have to agree.
