No one wants to be the first to go, but Tuesday’s eliminated contestant on Dancing with the Stars was all smiles after the show. For more on the amateur hoofer who got the boot, head to the jump…

No one needs to tell “Psycho” Mike Catherwood where he probably stands with viewers. But after earning a 13 for last week’s Foxtrot and a 17 for Monday’s jive, Catherwood recognized that his moves might not be the only reason he became the first competitor to leave the dance floor.

“I knew going in that I didn’t have the biggest fan base,” Catherwood admitted to EW after Tuesday’s show. “ But if I were to come out here and really be an amazing dancer, I would have gone on! So I’ve got to take that into consideration. I’m not a good dancer with a big fan base. But you try to look at the bright side. I’ve gained a lot of friends, and hopefully I’ve gained a lot of fans.”
