Alexa PenaVega's shot at the Mirrorball Trophy might not be over just yet!
The couples on this season's Dancing With The Stars are in flux after Tamar Braxton announced she was dropping out of the competition due to blood clots in her lungs.
The Real cohost's untimely exit from season 21 only leaves Nick Carter & Sharna Burgess, Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough, Carlos PenaVega & Witney Carson, and Alek Skarlatos & Lindsay Arnold in the running for the final 5.

With the reality competition having more weeks on the air than eligible couples on the dance floor, ABC producers are reportedly talking about bringing back PenaVega — who was eliminated on Monday's show!
An inside source close to the production told PEOPLE:
"The producers are looking at all possibilities right now. There is a possibility that Alexa could be reinstated."
If anyone deserves to come back this season, it's the 27-year-old actress. She received three perfect 10s from the judges on Monday with partner Mark Ballas!
Either way, the show will go on!
