'Baywatch' star David Hasselhoff found the ballroom a harder environment than the beach.
The 58-year-old entertainer was the first celebrity voted off the new season of 'Dancing With the Stars', the US equivalent of 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
Hasselhoff and his professional partner, Kym Johnson, were ousted from the TV celebrity dance competition after performing just one dance.
They landed in last place for a cha-cha-cha that judges roundly criticised.
Hasselhoff took the dismissal in his stride, saying, “Hey, we tried”, when his name was called.
Back to dance another week will be singer-actress Brandy; actors Jennifer Grey, Florence Henderson and Kyle Massey; athletes Rick Fox and Kurt Warner; reality stars Audrina Patridge and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino; singer Michael Bolton; comedienne Margaret Cho; and political daughter Bristol Palin.
