Jeffrey Ross"For me, it was never about the competition part. I'm taking away a lot of great memories."

Comedian Jeffrey Ross wasn't laughing when he was booted off 'Dancing With the Stars' last night.

After suffering for entertainment -- his partner, Edyta Sliwinska , accidentally scratched his eye during rehearsal -- Ross was clearly disappointed to be going home. "I have a slit cornea," Ross revealed. "I was advised not to dance, but I couldn't sit still while everyone had fun for two hours."

His fellow competitors were disappointed too. Pro dancer Mark Ballas said, "I'll miss Jeff. We had a poker night and he came by and played," while Misty May-Treanor lamented that, "He tried so hard."

Many fans were also sad, and wished the funnyman could stick around a little longer.

AOL TV chatted with Ross, as well as other 'Dancing With the Stars' participants, about the competition, the costumes, even Clay Aiken coming out of the closet. As Lance Bass said, "It'll be bring him closer to family and friends." He should know.
