Bridie Carter of Home and Away was left to compete in a dance-off to earn a berth in the Dancing with the Stars: All Star semi-final, however she came up short.
After footballer Anthony Koutoufides was saved by the judges on Sunday night’s program, the actor was eliminated.
Carter, on the other hand, stated that her return was not motivated by a desire to win.
“I don’t compete with other people, it’s all about myself. . . for me, it’s just about doing the best job I possibly can because for me it’s about the audience at home,” she told PerthNow.
“I’m creating a piece of the story through dance, I just want to entertain them in the best way I can. . . it’s never ever about winning, I’m just trying to do the best dance I can for the people at home.”
Carter, like the majority of the All Stars this season, elected to return to the program after being quarantined due to the east coast COVID outbreak.
“My philosophy is ‘leave on a high and don’t go back’ but, hey, I’m an actor in Australia with a job offer in the middle of a pandemic, and I was extremely grateful.”
Viewers of the show would have seen the 51-year-old bring back her rehearsal skirt, which she wore during her first season.
“That skirt meant something to me because my dance partner’s Craig’s wife made it for me. . . I wore it for every rehearsal the first time I did the series,” she said.
Carter took part in the performance to raise money for Liberation Larder, a local community charity.
“Byron Bay tends to presents an ideal and an Instagram backdrop but it’s a very rich and dynamic town which is far more than that. . . We have the highest rate of homeless outside of Sydney and they (Liberation Larder) provide meals and services for homeless people in Bryon Bay,” she said.
