While not the shocker of two weeks ago, which saw projected finalist Cheetah Girl Sabrina Bryan getting an early eviction from Dancing With the Stars, this week’s elimination of All My Children star Cameron Mathison and dance partner Edyta Sliwinska will likely have many fans up in arms.

“I felt like we had a lot of really great support from all the fans,” Cameron told OK! after receiving the bad news on Tuesday, “clearly, that is why we stayed in as long as we did. I’m really bummed about leaving. I’m proud of everything that we’ve been able to accomplish but honestly I’m really bummed. I don’t want to go home.”

Cameron, who was chided by judge Len Goodman Monday night for baring his chest, also explained to OK! that the whole DWTS experience has taught him a valuable lesson. “I now know I can dive into something that I know nothing about and, with a lot of hard work, I can become pretty good at it. I think I can apply that to a lot of things in my life!”

As far as picking a favorite of the remaining four teams, while Cameron says any of the pairs have a shot at winning, Edyta is less diplomatic. “I think it is clearly between Helio & Julianne and Mel B. & Maks,” she explained, before admitting that Jennie Garth and Marie Osmond are “still very much in the competition.”

So what’s the 38-year-old actor going to do with his free time? “Sleep!” Cameron laughed. “Then I’m going to play with my kids and then I’m going to sleep some more! And then I’m going to re-introduce myself to my wife and see if she’ll have me back!”
