The mirrorball dropped for Mike “Psycho” Catherwood on Tuesday night, making him the first to be sent home on this season of Dancing With The Stars. The radio host and his partner Lacey Schwimmer received a combined total of 30 points for their fox-trot and jive, the lowest score from judges Carrie Anne Inaba (pictured), Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli after two weeks. The couple also received criticism for their sexy routines and steamy on-camera chemistry. “The people at Dancing With the Stars did come to us and say you got to tone it down, but I think they meant you got to tone down all the extracurricular activities during your rehearsals because we'd like you to focus on dancing if possible," Catherwood said on Good Morning America Wednesday. “There was also a lot of unnecessary movements that really based around the pelvic girdle that they didn't like.”

Once again at the top of the leader board were Ralph Macchio and partner Karina Smirnoff, who continue to set the pace, receiving a total of 45 points over two weeks. The duo is followed closely by Super Bowl MVP Hines Ward and Kym Johnson with 44 points and Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy with 43, who ended this week's quick-step with a surprise kiss. Could love be in the air, or is it all for show? "I think they want to know if there was any tongue involved," Alley told the show's cameras. "But we'll just have to keep it a secret for now." —EMILY EXTON
