Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd found themselves facing an elimination on Monday's Dancing With the Stars after their tango was not so well received by the judges.

The Bachelor star and his pro partner attempted a routine to Lady Gaga's "Poker Face," but only got a score of 26 out of 40, with judge Len Goodman giving them a six. This made them one of the bottom two couples of the night, but ultimately it was Charo and Keo Motsepe who were eliminated.

When ET's Nischelle Turner caught up with Viall and Murgatroyd after the show, they were definitely disappointed about their scores, but grateful to still be in the competition. "Luckily we didn't go home tonight," Murgatroyd said.

"I was actually really excited about the performance," Viall added. "Certainly we both hoped for better scores, but we can't control that. What we can control is getting back at it tomorrow and trying to get better and go from there."

The 36-year-old reality star also told ET that he's adamant about focusing on his future on DWTS. "I mean, I'm always looking to get better," he insisted. "So, regardless of what the judges say, as long as I'm still here, I'm going to try to get better and hopefully I will and still enjoy this experience."
