Kaitlyn Bristowe is still 100 percent committed to Dancing With the Stars. The former Bachelorette is used to receiving glowing feedback from the judges on the dancing competition show, but this week, Carrie Ann Inaba felt she "gave up."
"What's so hard is, you are a good dancer, and I saw you trying really hard tonight. The things that didn't go well for you was the lift, number one. Number two, you are not resisting enough," Carrie Ann said. "I think it's because of your flexibility, sometimes you don't hold your shape strong because the elbows give out so work on that."
"Also, it felt like at moments you gave up. You had a moment of chaos there and I saw it in your eyes, and I felt like your spirit dropped," she added. "I don't want to discourage you because I do think you are a fantastic dancer but this was another not-great dance of yours and I apologize."
For Artem, his main focus is focusing on Kaitlyn's DWTS journey and serving as her guide along the way, instead of worrying too much about the judging.
"The thing is, I'm not the person who's like, 'I've got to go in and impress the judges.' No. This is not my motto ever," Artem shared. "My motto is, 'Let's make you the best you can be at this dance, and let's take that to the next level every day and try to be better.'... It's about doing the best dance she can do, because it's her journey."
Kaitlyn and Artem are hoping to get their groove back next week.
"Next week we're doing a jive," Artem hinted. "And it's definitely a different [kind of] dance... it's a happy dance and has a totally different vibe to it."
Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
