Mai told ET Canada in a statement: “It saddens me that I will not be able to continue with the competition on DWTS. My doctors discovered a health concern with my throat which requires immediate attention and surgery. I am heartbroken that my DWTS journey has to end here. The last several weeks have been an amazing learning experience. I have pushed myself to new limits physically and mentally, and I am so proud of how far we’ve come. I can’t thank my partner Brandon enough for being so supportive and believing in me. I also want to thank MAI fans who voted every week and I wish everyone else in the competition the best of luck!”

On Instagram, her dance partner Brandon Armstrong said:

Mai later updated her fans on how she is doing, writing, “I made it safely out of my emergency surgery.”

“What simply started as a sore throat had unbeknownst to me become a dangerous infection that already closed at least 60% of my airway and resulted in a throat abscess that spread in a matter of 3 days,” Mai said of her “potentially life-threatening condition.”

She continued to say she is “devastated” that her time on “DWTS” has come to an end and thanked Armstrong for being her partner.

I would never imagine ever having to write this, but I made it safely out of my emergency surgery. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Nasseri who identified my potentially life-threatening condition. What simply started as a sore throat had unbeknownst to me become a dangerous infection that already closed at least 60% of my airway and resulted in a throat abscess that spread in a matter of 3 days. Although I am grateful to be recovering safely, I can't lie… I am devastated by the fact that my journey with #DWTS will end this way 🥺😞 Dancing on this show has been the most exhilarating adventure.

How long the TV host and stylist will take to recover is still unknown, but four days after her surgery, Mai gave another update.

“No speaking. No chewing. No bad t-shirts,” Mai captioned a picture of her hospital room and her “Vote” shirt.
