Gilda Kirkpatrick Eliminated From Dancing With The Stars New Zealand!

Gilda Kirkpatrick has been eliminated from Dancing with the Stars New Zealand. The Real Housewives of Auckland star was the first celebrity to be sent home during the second week of the competition. During the first week, Kirkpatrick and her dancing partner Shae Mountain danced the Tango and scored a total of 18 points.

During week two, the pair danced the samba to Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's international Spanish hit "Despacito." The judges - whose scores combine with votes from those watching at home to - gave her a paltry 6, 6 and 5, a total score of 17 points, which wasn't enough to save her making her the first celebrity to be eliminated from the Channel Three competitive reality show.

During her elimination, Gilda admitted she was "not a dancer", but was happy she got to dance for her kids. She apologized to the Starship Foundation, her chosen charity, for getting eliminated. In the New Zealand edition, celebrities dance for their chosen charity.

Gilda was the first celebrity to be revealed for the current season of DWTSNZ. “I’ve never had any sort of dance instruction, so it’s going to be a completely new experience for me,” Gilda said at that time. “But this seems like a great opportunity to learn how to dance from professionals, plus it’s obviously a great stage on which charities can benefit.”
