We didn’t think anything could top Monday night’s surprise announcement that two couples would be eliminated from Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday night, but boy, were we wrong.
After pros Sasha Farber (who's still competing with Terra Jolé) and Emma Slater (who was eliminated with partner Rick Perry) danced a contemporary to Bruno Mars’ Just The Way You Are, show co-host Tom Bergeron told Sasha that he always thought he would make a good host.
So, Tom turned the show over to Sasha.
“Baby, I’ve wanted to do this for such a long time," Sasha said looking into Emma's eyes. "I love you so, so much,” he said as he reached for the ring in his pocket. “Will you marry me?”
“Yes,” Emma said as streamers came down, and the text "She said Yes!" flashed across the screen. Judge Julianne Hough wiped tears from her eyes as the rest of the contestants and their pro partners rushed the stage to congratulate the couple.
We're dancing with excitement! Congrats to our #DWTS pros@EmmaSlaterDance and @SashaFarber on their engagement!

So maybe Emma is out of this season’s competition, but at least she gets to take home a ring as sparkly as that mirror ball trophy.
