Jack Wagner talks about 'Dancing With The Stars' elimination -- See video
The second contestant got the boot on "Dancing With The Stars" on April 3 and Spoiler Alert! Jack Wagner said he's learned a lot from being on the competition.
On Monday night's "Dancing With The Stars" 52-year-old Wagner shared that for him, 2011 followed the show's theme of "The Most Memorable Year of My Life" because it was the year he found out he had a daughter. A 23-year-old woman introduced herself to him after a concert and he later dedicated his Samba performance to his daughter who was in the crowd.
However, in the stiff competition, Wanger ended up with the lowest score of the night alongside Gladys Knight, Gavin DeGraw, Sherri Shepherd and Melissa Gilbert and was booted from the ballroom.
"It's a real honor to be asked to be on the show," Wagner told OnTheRedCarpet.com correspondent George Pennacchio on April 3, after his elimination. "I feel like I was honored, I got to tell my story about my daughter and I and my two sons and that in itself is really pretty big, so I'm happy."
When asked what he learned from his time on the show, the former "Melrose Place" actor said, "I guess, how to treat people because pressure does strange things to people."
"By patting somebody on the back -- boy or girl, professional dancer male, female -- it really makes people feel good," he added. "I know it certainly made me feel good when I'd get encouragement from the other dancers."
His partner, Anna Trebunskaya called the actor a "wonderful student" and believes fans of the show are in for more shocking eliminations throughout the season.
"I think each single week is going to be a surprise elimination because everybody is really good and somebody might be really good in dancing, but the other guys are so much stronger in personality so it's really going to be tough for the viewer to pick a leader," she said.
