Though Miller landed in the bottom three at the end of Monday's elimination round, it was fellow footballer Doug Flutie who was sent home. 

UFC fighter Paige VanZant was, surprisingly, also announced in the bottom three but will remain in the competition, like Miller. (And good thing: VanZant has consistently received high scores.) 

The remaining celebrities in the competition, along with Miller and VanZant, are Boyz II Men singer Wanya Morris, Good Morning America meteorologist Ginger Zee, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, model Nyle DiMarco, Facts of Life actress Kim Fields and former Full House star Jodie Sweetin.
