Do you think Kristin deserved to go home? She & fellow dancer J.R. Martinez both told us they were ‘shocked’ by the results!

We were shocked when The Hills beauty Kristin Cavallari was voted off Dancing with the Stars on Oct. 4, but we’re glad to know she’s staying positive about it. “It was a lot of fun, and a great workout!” she told shortly after her elimination.

When we asked if there was more dancing her future, she said, “It’s been nice not having to go to the gym for the past couple of weeks, so maybe!”

As for which contestants Kristin thinks will cha cha their way to the finale, that’s a no-brainer: “I think J.R. Martinez and Ricki Lake are both going to get to the finals,” she told us. “They are such great people and I’m rooting for them both! Chynna Phillips as well.”

And speaking of J.R., the All My Children star had nothing but great things to say about Kristin to reporters.

“Kristin has a lot of potential so it was a real shocker for all of us,” he admitted. “I was sad to see [Kristin and partner Mark Ballas] go home.”

And we couldn’t help but ask J.R. what he has in store for next week, especially after he got the show’s longest-ever standing ovation on the Oct. 3 episode with his touching tribute to the troops.

“I think the song we will do will put JR in a completely different light,” J.R.’s partner Karina Smirnoff told us.

And in case you’re wondering which dance got Kristin eliminated, here’s the video:
