"I'm going to tell you a secret," White said upon hearing he and professional dance partner Kym Johnson had been voted off the program. "I really only thought I'd last about three dances in this competition.
"I've made incredible friends," he said. "The fans have been incredible. I love Roshon Fegan. I'm happy [the judges] saved him; he has a bright future."
Still in the running for the coveted mirror-ball trophy, along with their partners, are Fegan, actress Melissa Gilbert, football player Donald Driver, "Extra" host Maria Menounos, actor-model William Levy and singer Katherine Jenkins.
White is best known for his work on the sitcom "Family Matters." He is the host of the Syfy reality competition series "Total Blackout."
