The couple was kicked off quickly, the unlucky victims of their own success. They narrowly outwitted favorites "the Huffmans" in the blindfolded dress your husband competition, earning with their win 'immunity' or $10,000 in cash. They wisely took the $10,000 in cash, but suffered for their choice when it came time for the elimination vote. This despite the fact that the Newbery's shit the bed in competition, and didn't particularly ingratiate themselves to the audience, or, seemingly, to the other couples.

Nonetheless, the Smith's were chosen to prematurely be sent home, and in the end, this is good, as it ensures the continuation of the vaunted Huffmans in the competition.
