Sherri Shepherd started Dancing With the Stars Season 14 strong. In Week 1, her Foxtrot earned her an impressive 23 points, and the title of Happiest Contestant Ever. We thought her obvious enthusiasm, hilarious comments, and hot pro partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, would take her far (indeed, before the premiere, we actually predicted she could win). Whoops....

Although her performances over the last few weeks made us doubt whether she had the technical skills to make it to the top, we definitely thought her enjoyable stage presence would get her a lot farther than Week 4. We were wrong.

What do you think: Was Sherri's elimination as much of a surprise for you as it was for us, or did you see the writing on the wall after her low-scoring Week 4 Tango?
