Reality TV personality Jake Pavelka and his professional partner Chelsie Hightower were voted off of "Dancing with the Stars" in Los Angeles Tuesday.

"This is, I think, the best season of 'Dancing with the Stars' I've ever seen. I was so honored to be here. I enjoyed every second of this," Pavelka said upon learning his fate. "This is a lot harder than I thought it was going to be."

Pavelka was the star of the most recent season of the dating competition series "The Bachelor."

Still in the running with their professional dance partners for the coveted mirrorball trophy are Pamela Anderson, Erin Andrews, Evan Lysacek, Niecy Nash, Chad Ochocinco and Nicole Scherzinger.
