Dancing with the Stars had to send home the very first contestant of season 12 Tuesday night, and, after two weeks of dances, it was the couple with the lowest combined score who got the boot.
Radio host Mike Catherwood, talk-show host Wendy Williams and boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard all showed off some not-so-fancy footwork and landed in this week's bottom three. But in the end, it was "Psycho Mike" and his partner Lacey Schwimmer who were forced to hang up their dancing shoes.
The judges seemed to be in agreement with the public, as Catherwood and Schwimmer scored a combined total of only 30 points out of 60!
"It sucks to be sent home first!" said Catherwood, the cohost of Loveline Radio. Still, he said his brief stint was "nothing but a pleasurable experience," and he gushed over his partner. "She's equally if not more beautiful on the inside."
Catherwood and Schwimmer raised a few eyebrows during the short time they were teamed up, as their intense chemistry had some on edge.
"A representative said Dancing with the Stars has told Lacey Schwimmer, my partner, (and me), that we need to focus more on dancing and less on raw, pure sexual tension," Catherwood told Access Hollywood.
"Yeah, we are very touchy-feely, yeah, we are comfortable with each other, (but) it's more of a playfulness," Schwimmer told UsMagazine.com at a recent event. "It's the stuff that we actually talk about on camera that we need to wrap it up with. It's all in fun."
