After failing to impress the judges with their Rumba (Carrie Ann Inaba gave them a five! A five!), the duo found themselves in the bottom two alongside General Hospital alum Ingo Rademacher and his partner Kym Johnson. Andy has become a favorite among both DWTS fans and his castmates, who love his sense of humor and admire him for overcoming a substance abuse problem he has battled for years.

"I'm a little bit numb," he said after the show. "I'm a little sad."

Andy admits he went further in the competition than he ever imagined, but that doesn't make the elimination any easier.

"I'm not going to miss much about being here everyday because it's very, very, very hard," he says. "I am going to miss the feeling of accomplishment. It's like jumping over another mountain every week."

Throughout his seven weeks on the show, Andy has learned a lot more than just the rumba and the jive.

"I have a lot of obstacles in my brain that I can overcome," he says about what this experience has taught him about himself. "I'm stronger than I think I am. I'm more afraid than I know. I have this tough outter skin but really I'm a sensitive, scared guy."
