The reality star and former Playboy Playmate was sent home after landing in the danger zone alongside Chelsea Kane during tonight's live results show, although Tom Bergeron said that it "didn't necessarily represent the bottom two".
She had scored a total of 31 out of a possible 40 points for her tango with partner Louis van Amstel, which received positive feedback from the judges. Bruno Tonioli had described it as "elegant and sexy" while Len Goodman praised the "crisp and clean" movements.
"I've lasted seven weeks longer than I ever thought I would last," she said following her elimination.
"First of all, I want to thank Louis for sticking with me and fighting with me. Second of all I want to thank my family and Hank for being there with me every step of the way... baby Hank, I'm coming home for you. I'm not the best dancer but I am the best mum."
van Amstel added; "It's been an awesome journey and we're finishing on a high. I love [Kendra], [she's] come so far, I'm so proud of [her]."
The remaining couples sat down in a video featurette in order to give one another constructive feedback on their strengths and weaknesses as well as to share words of encouragement as the competition heats up.
