Her reason, though, may shock you.
"I'm not really good with a lot of attention. I probably shouldn't have done this show, but whatever," she told E! News on Monday. "I'm just not good with a lot of eyes on me and a lot of 'Oh, you're doing great, everything's good…'"
In fact, Amber had doubts about continuing early on and she confided in her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
"I don't know, Maks. I don't know man, this is just so hard," she remembers telling him. "Tell me this is the hardest dance we'll ever have to do."
Maksim said, "So I immediately just lost my mind and I just lost a couple years of my life…You know what, I didn't even answer."
For a woman who is rather open about her sexuality and no stranger to attention, it's a bit of a surprise to hear her speak about not being comfortable with a lot of eyes on her.
The duo was given the boot from the show on Monday on Latin Night, after receiving a 28 out of 40 from the four judges for their Cha-cha to "Bla Bla Bla Cha Cha Cha" by Petty Booka.
After they were eliminated, perhaps giving Amber a slight sigh of relief, she shared a fun photo of her and Maks and penned a heartfelt message on her Instagram page.
"Although our time was cut short @maksimc I'm so happy I had the chance to experience this with you!," she wrote. "You truly are my brother for life! Who knew we would become so close in such a short amount of time? 💕 Thank you for not giving up on me and getting to know the real me with no judgment I'll love you forever for that reason and I'll always have ur back through whatever. I'll miss our stressed out rehearsals more then anything tho 😂 Love Amberony."
