Hello dancers! This post is so bittersweet to me. As I type this on my iPhone, I'm currently sitting in a massage chair getting a pedicure. FINALLY! They told us as dancers we shouldn't get our toes done so that our feet are hard and strong.

This is my first Monday not being a part of DWTS and I have a mix of emotions. I miss everyone so much. I feel like throughout the whole experience we had all became a dysfunctional family, and we all had no idea what the hell we got ourselves into.

Bill Engvall: Viewers Like Me on Dancing with the Stars Because 'I'm Just a Regular Guy'

Originally posted 10/29/2013 11:25AM

One thing is clear on this season's Dancing with the Stars: Bill Engvall hasn't lasted this long in the competition because of his stellar dancing skills.

"It's about your fan base," Engvall, 56, told reporters backstage after Monday night's show, which sent Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi packing. "It's about popularity."

So, what, exactly, has made the comedian click with viewers?

"I don't have big time celebrity friends – I'm just a guy," Engvall explained. "Yes, I'm a 'celebrity,' I'm on the show. But if you went home with me, you'd be like, 'This guy's not a celebrity. He drinks his coffee in the backyard and walks out in his bathrobe to get the paper.' I think that's what they relate to. I'm just a regular guy."

Snooki on Her DWTS Exit: 'I Just Wasn't Ready to Go Yet'

As hard as it was to accept, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi tried to look on the bright side after her surprising elimination Monday from Dancing with the Stars.

"I'm happy and I'm grateful," she told PEOPLE backstage. "The show showed a different side of me, the mother side of me. And this whole experience has been so amazing. Everybody on the show is so amazing. I love them."

But the disappointment was evident, as she began to get choked up.

"I'm really sad to say goodbye to everybody," the Jersey Shore star, 25, admitted. "I just wasn't ready to go yet."

It was a night of overall high scores on Monday's Dancing with the Stars, but in the end, one couple had to go home.

The two couples in jeopardy were Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Sasha Farber, along with lowest scoring couple, Bill Engvall and Emma Slater.

And the results? Polizzi and Sasha Farber were eliminated in yet another shocking dismissal, closely following Christina Milian's surprising farewell a couple of weeks ago, despite their earning high scores.

Hello, dancers! Welcome to week seven of Dancing with the Stars!

This week we all had to learn two dances, our solo and our group numbers. My partner Sasha and I are dancing the samba and it's all about moving the hips and pointing your toes.

It was a little rough for us because we flew back to Jersey on the redeye right after the show on Monday. I had to do a lot of press for my show Snooki & JWOWW this week and we rehearsed from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. every night. By the time it was time to dance, my body was dead.

Dancing with the Stars: Technical Problems Skew Results

It was a night of exciting performances, positive reviews from the judges and a pair of big twists for the eight remaining couples on Dancing with the Stars Monday night.

First, the pairs had to perform in an improvisational switch-up challenge, which required them to show off their ability to transition seamlessly while dancing to music that suddenly changed.

Then, at elimination time, there was an even bigger twist that one no one – not even producers – had seen coming.
