David Hasselhoff was the first celebrity to be kicked off 'Dancing with the Stars' last night (21.09.10).
The former 'Baywatch' star was given the boot from the American dance competition along with his professional partner Kym Johnson, after finding himself in the bottom two with actor Kyle Massey.
Discussing his elimination from the show, David said: "It's been a great ride. I just feel so bad for Kym who worked so hard to get me where I was going. I'm so proud that my daughters are here and they got to see me come this far."
David received just 15 points from the judging panel for his Cha Cha Cha to Tom Jones hit 'Sex Bomb' during the first live show on Monday (20.09.10), and was placed last in the initial round of voting alongside Margaret Cho and Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino.
The public votes were then added to the judges scores, and Kyle - who came joint second with 23 points the previous evening - and David ended up in the bottom two.
Describing the opening show, judge Len Goodman praised all 12 performers for their "entertaining" routines on Monday.
He said: "Last night was absolutely fabulous! There was some great dancing. Some of the couples were maybe not the best dancers, but they were great entertainment.
"I'd like for them all to come back and have another go next week!"
Since leaving the show, David has admitted he always thought his dance moves wouldn't go down well with the judges.
Speaking on TV show 'Good Morning America', he said: "Kind of going into this I knew I wouldn't be the judges' favourite so all I wanted to do was have fun and play it up and that was our goal and I thought we did well. It is supposed to be entertaining. I was relying on Kym for the technique and I thought she was terrific."
