Comedian Chris Kattan’s journey for the mirror ball trophy has ended as the SNL alumnus was the first to get the boot on the new season of Dancing With the Stars, but the elimination was followed by a startling confession.
Kattan was pretty stiff during his first dance on the show's 24th season premiere last week, and after he and partner Witney Carson were kicked off Monday night, he previously revealed that he broke his neck 14 years ago while performing a stunt.
He added that he's still dealing with the medical issues, but didn't want to pass up on the reality dance competition.
“I wanted to do it,” the former SNL star said on Good Morning America Tuesday morning. "But I still wasn’t quite the best dancer you’ve ever seen. But there’s so many great dancers. Witney’s unbelievable. And you can’t compete with Simone [Biles] who is a gold medalist."
Despite his short-lived tenure, Kattan called his time with the show "such an amazing experience" and he “had a blast.”
Following Monday night’s show, many are questioning whether a feud is brewing between a judge and one of the celeb participants.
Real Housewife of Beverly Hills star Erika Janye blasted judge Len Goodman for what he had to say about her sexy routine.
Following her dance, Goodman said: "For me it was a little too raunchy, but I am what I am"
She appeared to laugh it off on TV, but in a blog post on People.com, she condemned the remark as sexist.
"You're held to a different standard and judged differently than men," she wrote. "But that doesn't mean I’m stopping!"
