Kristin Cavallari has a reason to visit Chicago, picks 'Dancing With the Stars' winner

The only thing more surprising than reality star Kristin Cavallari's early elimination from "Dancing With the Stars" was the nonchalance with which she took the news.

"DWTS" shockers are typically accompanied by tears or visible resentment, but Cavallari seemed fine with the results when Zap2it and other press caught up with her backstage at the show.

"Maybe my story didn't help," she says of her final dance, laughing. "Everyone had really sad stories... and mine was graduating high school and moving to LA."

She also had a little warning about her exit. Partner Mark Ballas predicted their  departure just 15 minutes before Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke delivered the news.

"Right before I went out he said, 'I just have a feeling we're going home,'" says Cavallari. "I was like, stop, you're making me nervous."

So what's next for the 24-year-old? "I had a few more weeks blocked off, so I don't know," she says, laughing, before carefully dodging a question about a possible trip to Chicago to visit ex-fiance Jay Cutler. (The Bears quarterback was sitting in the front row for Cavallari's final performance on "DWTS," prompting rumors of a rekindling.)

"Go visit my mom in Chicago? Maybe," she says. "My mom lives in Chicago, so probably."

As for who she thinks will make it to the finale, both Kristin and Mark think that Ricki Lake and J.R. Martinez have the right moves to go all the way.
