Now that he’s off Dancing With the Stars, Cameron Mathison can chill at home with his wife, Vanessa Arevalo, and their kids, Lucas, 4, and Leila, 1, and not worry about those shiny sequined spandex outfits anymore.

“I’m not big on sequins and spandex,” Cameron tells OK! of his DWTS attire. “It’s just not my thing. I like to keep things simple.”

And by simple, he means flaunting those ripped arms and pecs every week. Don’t think he was always that toned though.

“I’ve gotten leaner, but my weight stayed the same until we started doing two dances each show,” he says. “The extra rehearsal time and effort made me drop 8 lbs.!”

The 38-year-old has no plans to stop dancing either, after his elimination — although he doesn’t think he’ll enlist partner Edyta Sliwinska to tango with him.

“She’s a really expensive personal coach — I can’t afford her!”
