Transcript for Victoria Arlen calls 'DWTS' elimination 'devastating'
We're just a week away from the "Dancing with the stars" finale and last night, there was a shocker in the ballroom. Victoria Arlen and Val were sent home but you know what, we're on the lucky side of that because they're here now to talk to us about the competition. You know, you guys -- thank you for coming in this morning. It's a tiring long trip to get here. You were really incredible. Victoria, you had your first two 10s dancing the Charleston. How tough is it to go home after that. Devastating. We -- our two dances were probably the best we've had all season and you just felt so good with them and that Charleston freaked me out. I think I was doing that in my sleep to prepare for it. So I was really excited. I mean last night couldn't have gone greater until the end but I'm really proud of what we achieved and the fact we did get those 10s. You should be proud of that.

There was a couple of challenges here and there but, you know, with every challenge is a great opportunity, I'm so grateful that the show trusted me with this incredible young woman and I got to tell her story and it's not every day that a dancer gets to fulfill himself through, you know, embracing family and just like I said her story was so inspiring.

Victoria, when you left to come to "Dancing with the stars" you said you wanted to impact the world in a positive way through your dance. And you did that after your first dance, Victoria, we are so proud of you. The fact that you are even walking let alone dancing, we couldn't be more proud and we love you so, so much. Ah. Man. We got to say we're proud of both of you. We love having you here. Very proud of both of you and you know what, do not miss the two-night "Dancing with the stars" finale starting Monday at
