First #DwtS elimination. I'm completely unsurprised that The Hoff was sent packing. I don't think he has nearly the audience appeal that the producers expected. People in North America haven't felt the same way about Hoff since that home video his daughter took of him lying on the floor drunk, rambling, and eating cheeseburgers. He's not seen as a gracefully ageing heart-throb or an endearing silver fox. I think North America primarily sees him as a gross, creepy, drunken slob.
