Psycho Mike Catherwood

Will Mike Catherwood Go From 'Dancing With the Stars' to 'The Bachelor'?

Lacey Schwimmer and Mike CatherwoodIt wasn't too shocking that 'Psycho' Mike Catherwood, a Los Angeles–based disc jockey, was the first celebrity sent packing last night on season 12 of 'Dancing With the Stars.' After all, he earned the lowest combined score after two dances.

His pro partner, Lacey Schwimmer, who went all the way to the finals last season, now finds herself as the first dancer to exit the show. On the plus side, the dancer/singer got to meet Britney Spears last night since she was a guest on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.' (Ejected stars and dancers are invited to appear on the late-night talk show the night that they're voted off the program.)

Before the couple headed to Hollywood to appear on Kimmel's show, they chatted with TV Squad on the post-show press line to talk about their 'DWTS' experience and plans for the future -- specifically, would Catherwood be the new 'Bachelor' on ABC?

'Dancing With the Stars' Results: Who Was the First Eliminated Contestant? (VIDEO)

'Psycho Mike' Catherwood, 'Dancing With the Stars'After two weeks of performances, there has been a consistency toward the bottom of the leader board on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 8PM ET on ABC). Wendy Williams and "Psycho Mike" Catherwood have struggled with the lowest over-all scores each week from the judges. Could support from viewers at home save them?

It certainly wasn't going to be easy for them, but we've seen crazier things on this show. Wendy Williams has a very loyal following from her television show, while "Psycho Mike" has his loyal listeners.

It wouldn't take too much to elevate them above some of the other lower-scoring contestants like Sugar Ray Leonard, Petra Nemcova, Kendra Wilkinson and even Chelsea Kane. This is where the blend of public and judge's votes can make things interesting.

Backstage Interviews at 'Dancing With the Stars': Week One Was 'Terrifying'

Karina Smirnoff and Ralph MacchioRalph Macchio, 49, and Kirstie Alley, 60, are two of the older contestants on season 12 of 'Dancing With the Stars,' but after the first night of dancing they took early leads with top scores of, respectively, 24 and 23.

The star of 'The Karate Kid' and his pro partner, Karina Smirnoff, performed a Foxtrot that judge Len Goodman called the best one of the night.

Macchio's an actor; did that play a role in how successfully he embraced his part on the dance floor?

"Yes. Dancing is like acting only you use your body," said Smirnoff. "It allows him tap into the character so much better."

"[Acting] is less painful," joked Macchio. "Less painful."

'Dancing With the Stars' 2011: Who Is 'Psycho' Mike Catherwood?

Mike Catherwood, Psycho MikeOne of the biggest question marks in this season's slightly-less-star-powered-than-usual 'Dancing With the Stars' cast is 'Psycho' Mike Catherwood. What do we know about the guy besides the fact that he looks a lot like Kelly Ripa's husband Mark Consuelos?

Catherwood is a Los Angeles–based radio DJ who got his start as a sidekick on the Kevin & Bean morning show on L.A. rock radio station KROQ and currently co-hosts the nationally syndicated 'Loveline' with everyone's favorite TV personality / addiction specialist, Dr. Drew Pinsky.

His rise to national fame, however, came just a few weeks ago when he co-hosted 'Live With Regis and Kelly' when Reege was out one day. Catherwood told his home radio station in an interview that he was asked to do DWTS after that fateful gig. Actually, he started getting calls during the taping.

DWTS 2011 season 12 cast
Forget about having to master the Argentine Tango and the Paso Doble. 'Dancing With the Stars' contestants have to also learn how to handle the media since doing press is a big part of the show.

The season 12 contestants (minus model Petra Nemcova, who wasn't at the cast announcement) got their feet wet immediately after they were announced during Monday night's 'The Bachelor' by doing a round of start-up interviews with members of the media. TV Squad was on the scene to quiz the stars with a variety of questions.
