When Kim Kardashian West appeared on the show in 2008, she was constantly criticized for her lack of enthusiasm.

The judges called the reality star’s dancing “cold” and said they didn’t “connect” with her performances. She chalked up her poor performance to shyness.

“To be honest last week, I cried so hard when I got home, just knowing this is SO hard for me and I really am trying — but my inner shyness is making it look like I am just not trying,” she wrote at the time, according to E!. “I think I took it way too seriously and I was a nervous wreck on Wednesday.”

Alongside partner Mark Ballas, she ended up being the third person eliminated that season.

Her lack of skills and how much she hates dancing later became a storyline on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
