23: Most undeserving elimination: Jasmine Mason (Top 18)
I don’t think I’ll ever be able to figure out the judges’ logic when they sent Jasmine home over Alexis that week. I understand that there were over 9000 contemporary dancers and perhaps some were expendable, but Jasmine’s run compared to Alexis’s should have kept her without a doubt. I really don’t get it. She was my favorite going into the competition, so I’ll probably always be bitter.
