Later that night, Mark gave more details on her progress to Zap2It: "I think she's okay because she can walk. Usually when you do something to you bones or — like, I've had muscle spasms and dislocations and ribs, and once you do something bad, that's it. You can't get up.” He continued, “But she got up pretty quick. She's out there dusting it off. She's not being a baby. She's tough."
Mark also expressed concern that their minor slip-up would affect votes. “Hopefully they liked what we did, because it was feeling great up until there.” Regarding tonight’s Season 14, Week 9: Results show, Mark said, “She should be making a stab at the final. She should be taking a shot at the mirror ball. But I don't know how it's going to go now."
Hopefully the fans were actually inspired to vote even more after seeing Katherine in pain, and not the other way around.
