After being regarded as one of the “most-watched men in the world,” David Hasselhoff was hoping the same might translate to viewer votes this season as a contestant on Dancing With the Stars. But sadly, after one dance, it wasn’t meant to be, as The Hoff and his partner, Kym Johnson, found themselves the first victims of elimination on Tuesday’s results show.

With Monday night’s performance show proving both surprising and emotional, all 12 contestants gave their all on the dance floor. And while David and Kym did tie at the bottom of the leaderboard with 15 for their cha-cha, alongside Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Margaret Cho, viewer votes were not enough to save them.
“It is what it is,” Kym told In Touch after the news was delivered. “Obviously, we got low scores Monday night and were down at the bottom, but that is the nature of the show. You never know.”
Kym revealed she had the time of her life teaching David and was looking forward to showing America what he had to offer. “I had so many great things planned for him this season that we won’t get to do now,” she says.
So how was The Hoff after America’s verdict that he didn’t have the talent? “He was fine about it,” Kym tells In Touch. “He has such a great outlook on life. He was like, ‘I enjoyed the experience and now it’s on to the next thing.’” That next thing for David is a national tour of the U.S., performing the live show that made him a singing superstar in Europe.
Kym admits she’s going to miss the entire cast. “That’s the most fun part of the show for me,” she says. “Even in just two days we have gotten close. Just getting to know Florence Henderson and Jennifer Grey. I am going to miss all of that. But I’ll be back dancing on the results show, so it’s not the end for me. And hopefully, I’ll get to see The Hoff on tour!”
