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.

Except, that didn't happen.

Dancing with the Stars Double Elimination: Who Went Home?

Originally posted 03/24/2014 10:25PM

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:

Peta Murgatroyd's DWTS Blog: 'It's Great Having Maks Back in the Ballroom'

Peta Murgatroyd is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 14 – only her second season on the series – with Donald Driver. The Australia native will blog for PEOPLE about competing with Big Time Rush band member James Maslow during the show's 18th season.

There have been so many changes on the show this season, but I'm happy with them.

I think Erin [Andrews] did an amazing job at the premiere. I think she adds like this girl-next-door vibe to the show. I think Dancing with the Stars wanted to create a new audience this season and really liven it up a little more. I think she's helping to do that. Her interviews are great and she's really down to earth. She's really conversational.

From former child stars to young musicians, the 18th season of Dancing with the Stars is filled with an eclectic mix of competitors. But the most interesting may be the casting of Meryl Davis and Charlie White.

Davis, 27, and White, 26, ruled the rink at last month's Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, winning the gold medal in ice dancing. Now they'll battle in the ballroom – but against each other for the mirror ball trophy. White will dance with Sharna Burgess, while Davis will shimmy with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Valentin's brother, who is back after taking last season off.

The 12 new contestants on ABC's hit show were announced Tuesday morning on Good Morning America.
