Tyra Banks Reacts to Jeannie Mai's 'DWTS' Exit, Explains How the Show Will Go on Without Her (Exclusive)

ABC announced on Monday that The Real co-host was abruptly leaving the competition due to "a health concern that requires immediate attention."

Just moments after news broke on Monday, ET spoke with host Tyra Banks , who reacted to the unfortunate situation.

"When you see someone and they're doing great, they're doing fine, and then hearing something like this, it's just very sad," Tyra continued, adding that no one on set seemed to notice any signs that anything was wrong.

Due to Jeannie's abrupt exit, Tyra confirmed to ET that tonight will no longer be a double elimination -- only one of the eight remaining couples will go home.

Now, only two couples -- Johnny Weir and Britt Stewart and Justina Machado and Sasha Farber -- will compete in that dance genre.

Monica Aldama , who was eliminated with Val Chmerkovskiy last week, also posted a special message to Jeannie, writing, "My sweet @thejeanniemai ❤️❤️❤️ Praying for a speedy recovery and complete restoration of health."
