Candace Cameron Bure: 'I'm the Dark Horse in the Dancing with the Stars Race'

Originally posted 05/04/2014 02:30PM

Candace Cameron Bure hasn't just picked up some new moves while competing on Dancing with the Stars, she's also learned a lot about herself in the process.

"Apparently I'm a perfectionist, which I didn't know before," she told PEOPLE Friday at the Race to Erase MS Gala in L.A. "I guess I have some perfectionistic qualities when it comes to my own performance. I'm learning to lower my own expectations as far as having unrealistic expectations of myself."

But the former Full House star, whose partner is Mark Ballas, said that she's exceeded her own expectations about how far she'd make it in the competition.

Candace Cameron Bure kicked off her career at age 10, starring in the popular series Full House. Since the series wrapped in '95, the actress got married, had three kids and wrote two books. She's been paired with two-time mirror ball winning champ Mark Ballas for season 18 of Dancing with the Stars, and she'll be sharing her experience with PEOPLE readers.

It was Latin week on DWTS last night and it was one exciting show! I'm still catching my breath and playing catch up since it was such a busy week. Not only did I have to learn the Argentine tango, but we also learned a group dance that included a solo. So, two dances in two-and-a-half days was crazy!

I traveled to New York in the middle of the week, co-hosting The View and dropping by ABC News, VH1 and Hannity for interviews. Because of my trip to the East Coast, Mark and I went into double rehearsal shifts to make up the time and man it was exhausting!

Candace Cameron Bure: I Know People Don't Agree with My Beliefs

Not everyone is going to agree with Candace Cameron Bure's evangelical Christian beliefs – and she's okay with that.

"As much as you want to try and explain your position to people, sometimes at the end of the day it is not worth it," the former Full House star tells PEOPLE. "I need to invest my time in my family and not trying to please everybody or getting them to see my own point of view."

As a contestant on this season of Dancing with the Stars, Bure, 38, has garnered praise and criticism for her conservative beliefs and her "boundaries" that have left her modestly clothed and with fully-dressed partners (even when pro dancer Mark Ballas wanted to show off his abs).

Get ready to par-TAY!

Monday night's Dancing with the Stars showcased party anthems, with guest judge Redfoo from LMFAO helping to weed out the ho-hum from the fun.

James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd entered as the charmed couple after getting a perfect score on Disney week, while Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas were just holding on and Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke hoped that audience scores would prop them up for another week.

Except, that didn't happen.

I'm so looking forward to tonight's show for many reasons.

Last week was the switch-up, where Tony [Dovolani] and I danced the quickstep. I have so many thoughts regarding the week in its entirety, but most importantly, I loved getting to know Tony. We had a blast together. The punk rock costume, hair and makeup was one of my favorites and overall I just felt great about our dance.

I will say that I was very disappointed in our scores. I felt like the dance went really well and I hit everything Tony was teaching me. I do understand that one of the connection points in my frame wasn't tight enough, but it wasn't something we focused on, so I was a bit confused. Now standing at the bottom of the leader board, I really hope my fans have pushed me through to another week. I really don't want to go home tonight!

Dancing with the Stars Double Elimination: Who Went Home?

Monday night's Dancing with the Stars kicked off with a selection of surprises.

Not only did contestants learn right at the beginning that there was a double elimination to take place during the show, but the leader board's lowest scorer Billy Dee Williams – whose face expressed fear of being sent home – was saved almost immediately, and went on to dance a 15-point tango with Emma Slater that judge Len Goodman said "didn't have enough attack."

Before getting to the unfortunate two who were forced to bid adieu, here's a recap of how the night went overall:

I can't believe Carrie Ann Inaba gave me a 9 on my first dance! Mark and I were ecstatic!

I guess the lights, the camera and the thrill of performing live gave me an extra boost that even Mark was surprised to see. I really did give it my all that night and was happy with my overall performance.
