It was bye-bye Josie Maran on Dancing With the Stars
Wednesday night.

Josie, described as "deceptively unfit" by partner Alec Mazo, joins
Trista Sutter, Kenny Mayne, Tucker Carlson and Paulina Porizkova as the first
casualty of the season of the ABC smash.

"Thank you for being honest," Josie, 29, said when the results were
announced, adding that she has the dancing bug now and will continue to dance
alone, drawing laughter.

When OK! caught up with the Sports Illustrated model after being dismissed from the show, she vowed that this wasn’t the end for her. "I’m going to keep on dancing," Josie explains to OK!. "I might be alone, but I’ll keep on dancing. Why not?"

The exit marks the second consecutive first-round loss for Alec, who triumphed in the
first season with Kelly Monaco.

Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban, and partner Kym Johnson were also on the
chopping block, but their score and fan vote total ultimately edged that of the
model and professional ballroom dancer’s.

As for the folks who did vote for the two to no avail, Alec urged fans to “give
it to Cameron [Mathison] and Edyta [Sliwinska],” his professional partner and
new wife.
