Controversial DWTS NZ star gets eliminated before grand final

Dancing with the Stars NZ 25/06/2018

It was "see ya" to David Seymour as his winning public voting streak failed at the end to get him a spot in the Dancing with the Stars Grand Final.

The ACT party leader was up against Shav and Enrique in the bottom two, but after receiving some brutal judging and a total score of 31 - it was unlikely that the judges were going to save them.

David Seymour thanked New Zealand for their text votes, saying how proud he was to help fundraise for his charity KidsCan, and to stand up against the online bullies.

Including Shavaugh Ruakere, the final four that compete in next week's final episode include cricketer Chris Harris, social media starlet Jess Quinn and Newshub's Sam Hayes.

Viewers can help keep their favourite dancer in the competition by texting their first name to 3333 - each text costs 99c and net proceeds go to that star's chosen charity.

The DWTS NZ finale airs Sunday, July 1 at 7pm on Three, and all episodes can be viewed again on ThreeNow.
