It is perhaps the deepest humiliation a reality show contestant can suffer, but somebody has to go home first. And for the cast of “Dancing With the Stars” Season 12 that unfortunate distinction goes to radio personality Mike Catherwood.
With two performance episodes’ worth of scores and opportunities to ingratiate himself with the audience, Mike’s humor and zeal wasn’t what “DWTS” fans were looking for. (Zap2it spoke with him the morning of the elimination episode, and he seemed level-headed about a likely boot, so don’t feel too bad.)
Dodging elimination in the 11th hour are fellow low-scorers Wendy Williams and Sugar Ray Leonard — both of whom joined Mike on the chopping block in the final moments of the results show.
Mike takes partner Lacey Schwimmer out of the running with him, but at least she’ll be back for group numbers.
So what do you say? Will you miss “Psycho” Mike — or was it just his time?
