Why He Was Cut: Even though the retired running back charmed everyone week after week with his fancy footwork, he just couldn't make it to the finale. He handled his elimination well, even though his daughter Skylar needed a pep talk from her pops. "My daughter Skylar was absolutely broken all to pieces," said Smith on Good Morning America. "I had to call her to let her know everything was going to be ok. I tried to reiterate what I was saying last night. You can give your best, but sometimes your best might not be good enough. Somebody could do just that much better. But get back on the horse and ride it again, and have fun doing something else."
