Former NFL player Keyshawn Johnson was the first celebrity eliminated in season 17 of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” Monday night, but the ex-wide receiver had no regrets about stepping outside his comfort zone.



“It really is harder than football,” Johnson said on “Good Morning America” about his short stint on the dance floor. “All of a sudden you’re a grown man and you’re stepping out against these guys that are like 5-foot-9, 145 pounds, and you’re like 230-plus pounds and you’re trying to move like them and it’s totally different.”

Despite the challenges, Johnson gave it his all and logged long hours in rehearsals, he said today. “We probably averaged at least four hours a day in training,” he said. “I lost 20 pounds in three and a half weeks.”

    Yes, but so did Bill Nye. Keyshawn, on the field, especially during his college days was like a ballerina out there, able to move fluidly and dismantle defenses. But in the show, he looked like a lumbering giant with no grace.

    You bet. May have been a good football player but this is one guy with no dance talent.

    Yep. Although Nye should have gone first.

    Why are we caring about DWTS, anyway? No wonder that the U.S. is falling.

    Keyshawn Johnson has a history of being a enormous douche and prima donna.

    Don't go away mad Keyshawn. Just go away. Your 15 minutes of fame are over.

    Who else would anyone have selected? He wasn't all that good, and someone had to go! If you aren't going to make it anyway, go early so you can get back to your life.

    Don't really care, but its hard to root for someone who was a total ass his whole career.

    Ouch. What a grudge. His career ended almost ten years ago...he wasn't that bad of a guy.

    You don't write a book bashing your teammates after one season by writing a book called Give Me The Damn Ball. You do that, you're never going to win a ring, regardless of your talent, and you show the world, at the same time, that you're an ass. Not a Jets fan, but don't like egos like that.

    Well, honestly they should've given him the danm ball more often. The "Big Tuna" isn't very likable guy either, so I've heard...Furthermore, if you played as good as him your rookie year, you'd wonder why you didn't get more passes too.

    Right now, it is a popularity contest, and by rights the scientist should be gone, but he is such a huge personality, people voted for him to stay.

    What do you mean scientist should be gone, just because they prove religion wrong all the time?

    No, it has nothing to do with that, His dancing was terrible compared to the others. I have nothing against religion. Is he religious? Not sure what you mean.

    Hey, if you don't get the votes, you do. For talent it should have been Bill Nye, but he seems to have quite a fan base, so he may be around for a while.
