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.
