'Psycho' Mike first to be sent home on 'Dancing With The Stars'

It's never easy to be the first one eliminated on "Dancing With The Stars," but Tuesday night's star handled it with grace and appreciation.

He was admittedly the least known of the group. But for a couple of weeks, he became known to millions.

Radio host "Psycho" Mike Catherwood is heading back to his two jobs in broadcasting.

After getting the opportunity to perform two dances on the show, he tackled the Foxtrot first and then he took on the Jive.

The one-two combo of judges' scores and viewer votes knocked him out of the competition. Sugar Ray Leonard survived.

But he'll still wake up ready for the next round.

"If nothing comes of this career-wise, I'm perfectly happy because I'm very content at what I do," Catherwood said.

"I am so grateful to every day, day in and day out, to be so happy to go to work," he added. "Not a lot of people can say that. When I drive in to 'The Kevin & Bean Show,' when I drive in to do 'Loveline,' I'm truly giddy that that's my line of work and that those are the people I get to work with."

And the people he worked with on "Dancing With The Stars" said they will miss his presence.

"He is very quick and we'll miss that," said contestant Ralph Macchio. "He always has a response to everything. He's gifted with the zingers right away."

"We lose goofiness," Kendra Wilkinson said. "Just the fun, the spunk. I mean, he was awesome."

The remaining teams now move on to week three.

Chris Jericho will Rumba.

Petra Nemcova will Waltz.

Leonard will Paso Doble.

Bu when it comes to Wendy Williams, she plans to dress for success.

"All I had to say was 'Snatch me and pull me,'" Williams said. "You know what that means. I want it tight and right. Breathing is overrated."
