Jaleel and Roshon found themselves in a dance-off for the rumba, and both stepped up to the task.
“This is not easy: side-by-side, you guys are pretty much equal,” judge Carrie Ann Inaba told the fellas, while Bruno Tonioli conceded, “It’s just a matter of taste” in assessing both skilled dancers.
While it was close, it would be Roshon who the judges unanimously decided would live to dance another day.
“I really only thought I’d last three dances so to get this far — I’ve made incredible friends, the fans have been incredible!” Jaleel told host Tom Bergeron after he was sent packing. “I love Roshon Fegan, I’m happy they saved him — he has a bright future!”
The former Urkel’s ouster leaves six dancers left in competition for the show’s coveted mirrorball trophy: Fegan, Donald Driver, Melissa Gilbert, Katherine Jenkins, William Levy and Maria Menounos.
Dancing with the Stars‘ 14th season continues on ABC next Monday at 8/7c.
In a post-elimination Jimmy Kimmel appearance, the late night host asked Jaleel why he didn’t revive “The Urkel,” a parody dance he used to perform on Family Matters.
White said the competition was too fierce to resort to gimmicks.
