Terra Jolé is leaving Dancing With the Stars with a friend for life—her professional partner Sasha Farber—and a new lease on life. The Little Women: LA star was sent home during week 10 of the competition after receiving two perfect scores for her rumba and tango performances.
"I've come a long way. I've had a really great partner that guided me along this way. I feel if it wasn't for Sasha I wouldn't be here," she told E! News after the show. "There's nobody else here who would've brought me this far."
Sasha said working with Terra was a "dream come true." "She's taught me so much in life and everything. I feel like I'm leaving a better person just by meeting Terra and getting to work with her," he said.
But by far, aside from the friend, Terra said the most important thing she's taking away from the show is "just to believe in yourself."
"Because in the beginning I thought I believed in myself, and then lo and behold I was very insecure about a lot of things, from dancing with an average-size partner to the way America would accept me," she said. "And honestly, believing in yourself is the number one key to being better in life."
Laurie Hernandez, Jana Kramer, James Hinchcliffe and Calvin Johnson Jr. made it to the finals.
Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays, 8 p.m. on ABC.
