We were so worried about Sean Lowe’s pending elimination on Dancing With The Stars on Tuesday, May 7, that we couldn’t even watch. After all, every time we think back to the time Sean got rejected on The Bachelorette, we’re overcome with a mean case of the sads.

And although we wanted to be there for him when he and partner Peta Murgatroyd got the royal boot over competitors Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff, we just couldn’t. So, we buried our faces in our Sean-shaped body pillow and cuddled up to our Twitter feeds, letting the wise words of Molly Mesnick, Trista Sutter, and Sean’s other pals express what we couldn’t.

Sean was bummed about the elimination, but was able to express his gratitude to fans.

Sometimes age is just a number. Right, Riley Anne Mesnick?

Bachelor cheerleader Craig Robinson has apparently been watching, so...

 

Sean’s sister Shay watched as her bro got the boot. No word on whether his niece Kensington had some choice words for her fumbling uncle.

 

And Sean’s dance partner Peta had a lot of great things to say about her waltzing fallen warrior.

 

And his fiancée Catherine Guidici felt the warmth of that...

 

But it was Trista who really summed it up best. 

Aww, Sad to see Sean go, or did you know it was time for him to get back to real life?
