Alexa PenaVega may have earned two perfect scores on Monday night's Dancing With the Stars performances, but it amounted to a case of too little, too late. Despite those perfect 10s, Alexa PenaVega was voted off Dancing With the Stars this week.

Last week's performances put Alexa in jeopardy of elimination, along with husband Carlos PenaVega. With the two up for elimination, it drew to a close the first ever married couple competing against one another. When it was announced that Alexis PenaVega was the one eliminated, Carlos openly wept. He said he wished he'd been eliminated instead of his wife.

Her time on Dancing With the Stars gave Alexa PenaVega the confidence to talk about a previous issue with bulimia.

"This show allowed me to gain that confidence to just talk about it and maybe help other people who are going through that and really just put it all to rest," she said Tuesday on Good Morning America.

Pro dance partner Mark Ballas said he was proud of Alexa, and would consider her a "friend for life."

In addition to Alexa PenaVega, Andy Grammer, Hayes Grier, Paula Deen, Chaka Khan, Victor Espinoza, and Gary Busey have all been voted off Dancing With the Stars this season.

Were you surprised by this week's elimination?
