Steve-O not bummed about ‘DWTS’ booting

Former Jackass stuntman Steve-O said he's not bummed about being voted off of Dancing with the Stars in the U.S. show's sixth week of its eighth season.

I don't have anything to be bummed out about, he told People magazine Tuesday night after learning he and professional dance partner Lacey Schwimmer had been booted.

Last night was the first time I can say that my performance on television was better than any of the rehearsals leading up to it.

Steve-O likened himself to last season's fan favorite Cloris Leachman, 82, who managed to stay in the game despite woeful performances.

It's so good to be the worst dancer and keep staying in, Steve-O said. We lasted as long as Cloris Leachman over here.
