It's the end of the road for the first of the contestants on Dancing with the Stars.

Several season 12 competitors had struggled Monday night to increase their standings on the leader board, but in the end Mike Catherwood, Wendy Williams and Sugar Ray Leonard came up with the lowest scores.

It's back to the radio for Catherwood, who along with pro partner Lacey Schwimmer failed to make it past the first round of eliminations.

"It's been such an amazing experience overall," said Catherwood, who was at the bottom of the scoring with 30 points out of 60. "It sucks to be sent home first, but I've made a lot of good friends."

Surviving for at least another week were Williams, who earned 31 points, and boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, who had 34.

Meanwhile, Ralph Macchio hung on to the top spot Monday, even though the judges were disappointed with his jive compared with last week's foxtrot.
