"I'll miss the whole pressure element of the show," DeGraw, 35, told PEOPLE backstage after he and partner Karina Smirnoff were booted from the ballroom Tuesday. "I enjoy the pressure. I don't necessarily enjoy it all the time, but pressure is good frequently."

Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus were one point above them with a score of 22 for their samba.
