DWTS 2011 Season 12 – Mike Catherwood & Lacey Schwimmer Discuss Their Last Night & Dancing Journey (Videos)

Lacey and Mike made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and another appearance on Good Morning America today to talk about their dance journey. They talk of their chemistry and how it was true ABC asked them to cool their sexual tones down. Mike jokes about his dancing too and how awful it was, but, I don’t think he gives himself enough credit. He danced a lot better Monday night and I was loving his sexy moves last night on the results show. Anyway, check it out and more below. He’s a hoot. Atleast Dancing With The Stars gave him some exposure and I have a feeling we’ll see more of him in the future….hopefully, filling Regis Philburn’s spot on “Regis and Kelly” when Regis retires.

Also, here is what Mike told People.com after the show last night.

“I’m sure there are a lot of past competitors that sparked a dancer within them, but I am not one of those people,” Catherwood told PEOPLE following Tuesday’s elimination show. “If anything, the only relief that comes with being eliminated tonight is knowing that I don’t have to go back in and frustrate myself and Lacey with my horrible dancing.”

While the L.A.-based KROQ disc jockey, who earned the lowest scores in the first two weeks of competition, may not be walking away with a newly instilled passion for the ballroom, he’s not exactly leaving empty handed, either.

“I’ll take away a friend,” Catherwood said says of Schwimmer. “It’s been a great experience for that reason and that reason alone. You realize as you get a little older … that nothing else really matters in life except the relationships you develop, and I’ve been lucky enough to develop a lot of them – but most importantly, Lacey.”

The funnyman admits his early departure is disappointing but considers the overall experience to be a success.

“In a weird way, I feel like I’ve matured, because I faced something that was profoundly intimidating and embarrassing and faced it head on,” says Catherwood. “If you can count on one hand all these moments that you’ll remember for the rest of your life, then I can take away knowing that this was one of them.”

After everything he’s said, I think he came out a winner in a different sense. He knows what’s the most important and that’s all that matters in the end.
