*Caution: Spoilers Ahead!*

Dancing With the Stars season 25 has axed its first contestant!

Following the season's second night of competition, Shark Tank star and businesswoman Barbara Corcoran was sent home.

The elimination comes after Corcoran, 68, and her pro partner, Keo Motsepe, found themselves at the bottom of the score board for the second week in a row.

In the season premiere, Corcoran and Motsepe performed a salsa set to "Money Maker" by Ludacris, which earned them a score of 14 out of 30.

This week, the pair performed a tango set to "Whatever Lola Wants" as performed by Sarah Vaughn, and they actually improved, earning a 17. However, the votes had already been cast.

After they were cut, hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews spoke with Corcoran, who opened up about how she felt now that her DWTS journey alongside Motsepe had come to an end.

"How am I gonna live without him?" wondered Corcoran, who spent much of her time on the show flirting with the handsome dancer.

"It's such an honor," she added of her time on the show. "It was probably the most exciting thing I've ever done in my whole life."

'Dancing With the Stars' Season 25: Odds to win (TV Line)

Barbara Corcoran (with pro Keo Motsepe)

Odds: 40-1

Pros and Cons: I’ve got a question for that wise owl from the Tootsie Pop commercials: How many seasons of DWTS does it take for Motsepe to get a decent partner? Aside from his sixth-place finish with Jodie Sweetin in Season 22, Motsepe has alternated between 13th and 11th place with his four other previous partners. (Perhaps one day, we’ll actually get to see his personality and choreographing prowess.) Shark Tankvet Corcoran will undoubtedly be fun to watch, and Dancing viewers have a soft spot for amateurs who give it their all, regardless of skill. But in the end, neither she nor Motsepe seem long for the Season 25 world.

Derek Fisher (with pro Sharna Burgess)

Odds: 35-1

Pros and Cons: NBA players have never had tremendous success on DWTS, which sets an unfortunate precedent for Fisher. Plus, given their difference in height and weight, Fisher and Burgess probably have a lot of clumsy routines in their future. The bright side: Burgess has yet to encounter a partner whose shortcomings she couldn’t choreograph around, from Noah Galloway to James Hinchcliffe to Bonner Bolton. Season 25 might not be a victorious one for Burgess, but her creativity and enthusiasm are always massively entertaining.

Frankie Muniz (with pro Witney Carson)

Odds: 30-1

Pros and Cons: Carson won the Mirrorball with Alfonso Ribeiro in Season 19, and has since been paired with contestants ranging from awful (sorry, Chris Soules!) to decent (Carlos PenaVega). I would love for Muniz to be a sleeper champion in Season 25, but the more likely scenario is that this actor-turned-race car driver will struggle to keep up with increasingly tricky dance styles.

Terrell Owens (with pro Cheryl Burke)

Odds: 25-1

Pros and Cons: Burke has already proven that she can confidently coach football players through their Dancing troubles: She snagged the Mirrorball with Emmitt Smith in Season 3 and placed fourth with Chad Johnson in Season 10. But even if Burke does turn T.O. into a ballroom pro, he’ll have to get the audience on his side if he wants to go far. Given the many controversies that have followed him throughout his NFL career (including that Nicollette Sheridan video), earning votes may not come so easily to him — and viewers might be even less inclined to back a pro footballer two seasons in a row, now that Rashad Jennings is the reigning Dancing champ.

Nick Lachey (with pro Peta Murgatroyd)

Odds: 20-1

Pros and Cons: Lachey might be feeling the most pressure of any Season 25 contestant, considering brother Drew already walked away with the Mirrorball in Season 2. The good news? The elder Lachey can rely on the exact same boy-band dance experience that his sibling did, which means he probably won’t be the first (or even third) one eliminated. The bad news? After spending years in front of the camera — from reality show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica to competition series The Sing-Off — the viewing audience has likely had enough of Lachey, and he’ll have to be sensational on the dance floor to win over cynical voters.

Drew Scott (with pro Emma Slater)

Odds: 18-1

Pros and Cons: Though there’s plenty of viewers who find HGTV personalities insufferable, there’s thousands more who swoon daily over the Property Brothers — and that voting bloc will seriously help Scott’s chances in the competition. When Scott is on television, we usually see him as a straight-laced, well-dressed realtor with excellent posture; I’m not sure he’s got the flexibility or versatility to nail ballroom dancing, and that’s to say nothing of his one-foot height difference from Slater. Still, Slater was able to transform a pro football player into a Dancingchampion just last season, and it doesn’t seem likely she’d back down from this challenge, either.

Sasha Pieterse (with pro Gleb Savchenko)

Odds: 16-1

Pros and Cons: Here are three words to put in the “pro” column for Pieterse: Pretty. Little. Liars. Even though the Freeform drama ended earlier this year, it’s still got a vocal fandom that will likely benefit Pieterse hugely where votes are concerned. But PLL fans will only take Pieterse so far if she and Savchenko don’t have genuine chemistry — and Savchenko will need to deliver innovative choreography that can take the spotlight off series vets like Mark Ballas and Val Chmerkovskiy.

Nikki Bella (with pro Artem Chigvintsev)

Odds: 12-1

Pros and Cons: Chigvintsev has been known to butt heads with his previous partners, and if rehearsals get stressful, that might lead to some friction with a big personality like Bella. But she also brings quite a few assets to the show, namely her insane strength and ability to commit to a character, as she does in the wrestling world. If she and Chigvintsev can channel all that intensity into passion on the dance floor, they could very well make a strong case for that Mirrorball. (Bonus: If Nikki gets hurt, twin sister Brie could always fill in for her.)

Debbie Gibson (with pro Alan Bersten)

Odds: 10-1

Pros and Cons: Though Gibson is famous for her late-’80s pop music career, let’s not write her off as a has-been who will struggle in the ballroom. In the years since “Only In My Dreams,” she’s done quite a bit of musical theater, leading such Broadway shows as Les Miz, Beauty and the Beast and Cabaret — so this won’t be her first dance rodeo. If Bersten can develop a solid fanbase in his first season as a professional partner, he and Gibson could be a formidable dark-horse pair.

Vanessa Lachey (with pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy)

Odds: 8-1

Pros and Cons: After getting eliminated far too early with Heather Morris last cycle, Chmerkovskiy will certainly be looking for redemption in Season 25. Though Lachey doesn’t have much notable dance experience, Chmerkovskiy is excellent at playing to his partners’ strengths and harnessing the potential he sees in them. If only one half of the Lachey couple can go the distance this season, Vanessa’s chances seem much stronger.

(Craig Sjodin via Getty Images)

Victoria Arlen (with pro Val Chmerkovskiy)

Odds: 6-1

Pros and Cons: Arlen has a deeply powerful story: After living in a vegetative state for almost four years, she has slowly regained the ability to walk and talk; in fact, it was just over a year ago that she could move her lower half again. Though Dancingvoters will no doubt support Arlen during her time on the show, this is Chmerkovskiy’s first time choreographing for a partner with a potential physical impairment. If he can patiently and compassionately navigate Arlen through their routines, their partnership will likely have us reaching for the Kleenex every week.

Lindsey Stirling (with pro Mark Ballas)

Odds: 4-1

Pros and Cons: Even though Stirling never pursued professional dance as a career, she regularly works choreography into her violin performances — and she’s got energy in spades, which she’ll need with Ballas as her partner. Stirling’s musicality, combined with Ballas’ originality, could make them worthy winners of the Mirrorball trophy… provided Stirling makes a big enough impact on the viewing audience to stick around. (Judging by the number of views on her “Radioactive” coverwith Pentatonix, at least a couple of people know who she is.)

Jordan Fisher (with pro Lindsay Arnold)

Odds: 2-1

Pros and Cons: Season 25 will be Arnold’s sixth go-round as a pro, and she’s reached the finale three times… with partners that no one would expect to see anywhere near the winner’s circle. (See: David Ross.) This time, Arnold is paired with Fisher, who has a far more impressive resume: Not only does he have musical theater experience — including a buzzy performance in Fox’s Grease: Live and a recent run in Broadway’s Hamilton — but his solo music is in heavy rotation on Radio Disney, which means plenty of young voters will be dialing in on his behalf. Arnold has already proven she can achieve greatness with even the most heavy-footed dancers; alongside a young, musically inclined partner like Fisher, she seems unstoppable.

Before the elimination, Bergeron and Andrews revealed which stars were in jeopardy. Joining Corcoran at the bottom were Terrell Owens and his partner, Cheryl Burke.

However, those two squeaked by and will be performing with the remaining stars on Tuesday, in the week's second episode, where another couple will face elimination.

Tune in at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC to see how the stars handle their Latin Night performances.

ET recently caught up with Corcoran during rehearsals and she revealed that the rigorous training for DWTS made her cry for the first time in years.

"I spent today three hours in practice and learned exactly three little steps and there's roughly 80 steps in a dance and I have two dances to turn out Saturday. So, needless to say, I had a cry down," Corcoran confessed. "I didn't know I had enough juice in my body to cry. I haven't cried in like, 25 years and I was sobbing all over Keo's lap."
