Steve-O and Lacey Schwimmer, Moreno Valley and Redlands native, were this week's dismissed dancers on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."
The couple had the lowest scores from the judges several weeks running.
Steve-O, who was open throughout the show about his substance recovery program, said he felt good about the challenges he met - including an on-set injury - without drugs.
"I met a lot of challenges, I made a lot of mistakes and the fans kept me around long enough to learn from it all," he said. "It's forced me to grow as a person and for that I'm very grateful."
Seven celebs remain in the competition including rapper Lil Kim; rodeo champ Ty Murray; former football star Lawrence Taylor; olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson; country singer Chuck Wicks; "Bachelor" star Melissa Rycroft; and actor Gilles Marini.
