He will undoubtedly hit the stage at some point this season to "What Is Love" by Haddaway, the theme song of his "Roxbury" sketches with Will Ferrell. Kattan pulled the lowest score of the night, with a 17. The decision has to do with both judges scores and the number of votes each team receives from viewers.

Kattan joined a select group of rock-bottom "DWTS" competitors.

In Week 2 of "DWTS" one of the 12 competing couples will be sent home.

"This afternoon, I wrote the name of my Dancing star on a piece of paper, I folded that paper up, I locked it in a tiny briefcase, and I lovingly placed that briefcase inside Guillermo [Rodriguez]'s mouth", he explained, as Guillermo revealed "Rashad Jennings" as the champ. This season, the stars can earn a possible 40 from the now four-judge panel.

Kattan's appearance on "DWTS" was courageous, as he told the cameras that he had previously broken his neck. Do you consider him the dark horse of season 24? "I had to be careful for a really long time".

Adds Kattan: "It's the flawless way to jump on the horse". [Now] it's flawless timing. Until a fall, a little over a year ago, resulted in a broken neck and temporary paralysis.

"When you have surgery, you're out of commission for months. It's embarrassing. You cant go out in public".

For Carson, Kattan's neck injury is cause for concern as the pair train for the weekly dance competition. "And then I gave it my all [on show night]".
