Playing What Jaleel White Will Miss Most about 'Dancing'

After being at the bottom of the pack this week on Dancing with the Stars, Jaleel White found himself in a dance duel that resulted in his elimination from the show last night. The former Family Matters star revealed to ET what he would miss most about the experience.

"I'm actually going to miss [Kym] working my butt off," he said backstage after the show. "I like hard work. It's the only reason why I'm standing where I'm standing right now," he explained, then revealing his post-Dancing plans.

His Team Tango teammates Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas reflected on what it was like to work with White. "He's the comedian of the group...always making us laugh," Jenkins said. "Because we were in Team Tango together, we've really bonded this week so it's a real shame."

Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower, who were subjected to the dance duel with White and his partner Kym Johnson, asserted that having already participated in the dance duel on last week's show gave them an edge.

"I think had we not had that experience I think it would have been a lot harder," said Hightower. "We're very fortunate to have been in the Bottom Two last week as well. That sounds crazy but we're fortunate to have that experience going into this next week."
