Did they do that?

Jaleel White, best known for his portrayal of the nerdy Steve Urkel on the '90s sitcom Family Matters, was eliminated from Dancing With the Stars season 14 on Tuesday, in yet another nail-biting Dancing Dual.

Jaleel, who was in the bottom two a couple of weeks ago, was at a slight disadvantage heading into tonight's elimination episode; his military-inspired Vietnamese Waltz barely impressed the judges on Monday, earning the actor three eights for a total of 24 out of 30 points.

Obviously, Jaleel's performance in the Dancing Dual on Tuesday didn't impress the judges enough, either, who chose to save Roshon Fegan -- another familiar face in the bottom two -- from elimination instead.

Still, despite the bad news, Jaleel remained in high spirits as he spoke to hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke Charvet following his elimination.

"I really only thought I would last about three dances in this competition," he said, humbly.

Jaleel's run on Dancing With the Stars was marred by controversy when, midway through the season, news broke that he got into a heated tiff with his partner, Kym Johnson, during rehearsals. Jaleel later spoke about the incident and the subsequent tabloid rumors in an exclusive interview with Celebuzz, admitting, "I probably wouldn’t have signed up for the show if I had been able to look into a crystal ball."

"But, I tell you: I don’t have any regrets about doing the show because I don’t know how the experience ends. Why would I regret anything when I don’t know the outcome? You go through ups and downs; you go through moments of personal frustration. Hopefully, at the end, you triumph," he added.

The season finale of Dancing With the Stars season 14 airs later this month on ABC. The Dancing Dual was implemented a few weeks ago so that the judges could save a stronger contestant from being eliminated too early. (Think: the American Idol judges' save, but with fringe.)

    I think Jaleel was and always will be arrogant. I do not think the dance is a vietnamese waltz.
