David Hasselhoff was surprisingly the first contestant eliminated from the eleventh season of Dancing With The Stars Tuesday night, as both judges and viewers decided they'd seen enough after the charismatic showman's lone dance, a 15-point cha-cha-cha with partner Kym Johnson.

"It's been a great ride," Hasselhoff, 58, said after he was eliminated. "I feel bad for Kym because she worked hard trying to get me where I was going. I'm so proud that my daughters are here and they got to see me come this far."

His celeb competitors on the ballroom hit were also taken aback by the shockingly-early elimination.

Bristol Palin told exclusively that its "sad to watch him go, and it was a surprise to watch him go tonight," a sentiment echoed by Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.

"Somebody had to be eliminated," the Jersey Shore star told exclusively. "Unfortunately it was gonna be one of us -- it' s sad to see, but one of us had to go."

The duo who was on the chopping block with the Hoff -- Disney star Kyle Massey and his dance partner Lacey Schwimmer -- said that the Baywatch star always brightened up the morale of his co-workers with his self-deprecating sense of humor, giving them t-shirts with Hoff slogans on them, and asking them questions like "Have you had your morning Hoffee today?"

Said Schwimmer: "He would've been really entertaining throughout the season ... so we lost a good entertainer."

Dancing With The Stars returns on ABC next  Monday at 8/7c.
