Added DiffLines:

** Simone Biles in Season 24 getting knocked out in the semifinals, despite getting a perfect 80 points from her dances that night. The other contestant in the final two was former Cubs catcher David Ross, who scored the lowest in his dances that night, but [[EliminationHoudini may well have the most fan support in the history of the show]].

** Tamyra Gray and Christina Christian (season 1, the latter getting help from the contestant being absent during her elimination). On TelevisionWithoutPity, "Tamyra'd" is the name of this trope for ''Series/AmericanIdol.''

** From season 8, Acid Betty was eliminated after Snatch Game like Max, even though she had been high the first three weeks and safe week 4. Thorgy Thor had been high or safe every episode and was a fan favorite but was eliminated when she didn't even do poorly, she just didn't do as well as the other remaining queens. Derrick Berry's elimination wasn't shocking per se, but she was expected by many to make the Top 3 due to her fame as a Creator/BritneySpears impersonator, but unlike {{celebrity impersonator}}s from previous seasons, Derrick was unable to break out of her "Britney box," which led to a shockingly mediocre showing.

* In the revival of Series/WWEToughEnough, early on, Mickael was in the bottom three alongside his hated rival, Ryan (whose biggest challenge for the show was overcoming the EmbarrassingNickname "Skidmark" given to him by, ironically, Bill Demott). In order to decide who was leaving, StoneColdSteveAustin made them cut promos on one another. Mickael choked, and Ryan buried him. Everyone was stunned, but whether it was Mickael's failing or Ryan stepping up to the plate depends on who you ask.

** A more shocking elimination was [[Series/ChickBusters AJ]] from season 3 where the fans voted for who they wanted on the show. At the time AJ was arguably the most popular rookie that season. Even wrestling critics were calling her elimination a miscarriage of justice. AJ would eventually return to the main roster as the tag partner of season 3's winner, Kaitlyn. The other shocking elimination of the season, runner up Naomi, would eventually resurface, but as one of Brodus Clay's backup dancers.

*** It could be argued that he was the de facto winner since all the others were either formally eliminated or moved to the main roster. Bateman was the only one that remained when NXT changed its format but he was released soon after and eventually ended up wrestling in TNA as Wrestling/EC3.

** Jessica Wild on season 2, who placed consistently high and won the previous challenge. Even Tatianna, who had just won the lipsync, was shocked that Jessica was eliminated.
** Willam's elimination was arguably the most shocking, as she is the only person to be disqualified for breaking the rules, even though she consistently did very well through the season and actually won the challenge in the episode where she was eliminated.
** Vivienne Pinay and Honey Mahogany's double elimination, as it was the first in the show's history.

** This trope was inverted by Naomi Smalls and Chi Chi [=DeVayne=], also from Season 8. In the preseason promos, both queens gave the first impression that they'd be "filler queens" expected to be eliminated early. Instead, they both won a challenge each and placed higher than the three queens mentioned above, with Chi Chi reaching 4th place and Naomi making the Top 3. This is lampshaded by judge Michelle Visage, who admitted that she was not expecting the two of them to make it to the penultimate episode. Bob the Drag Queen and Kim Chi were always considered shoo-ins for the Top 3, but either Derrick, Thorgy, or Betty were expected to join them rather than Naomi.
