It is with great sadness that we wish our beloved “Psycho Mike” Catherwood and his smoking hot partner Lacey Schwimmer a fond farewell. Perhaps with a bit more time we could have awoken the black swan that lives in Mike, but regrettably, we will never know.
“To be mentioned alongside the names [David] Hasselhoff and [Kenny] Mayne, it puts me on the Mount Rushmore of terrible dancers.” – Mike
So here’s the bottom line: Michael Flatley Lord of the Dance he is not. In fact, some might say that Psycho Mike “twinkle toes” Catherwood is somewhat rhythmically challenged. However, and this is a big fat HOWEVER, our boy has balls! Balls and charisma. You can’t go wrong with either of those.
To go on national television in front of millions of people and attempt to do something you have no experience in , something you’ve never ever done, something completely foreign to both you and your body, takes some huge cojones. Huge.
Psycho Mike has always refered to his package as small. He has said on numerous occasions that he is hung like a fire ant, and although that may be true, he gets our vote for having the guts to go out there and cha-cha despite his body’s obvious adverse reaction to it.
If you don’t really know Psycho Mike, then you definitely did not get to know him just by watching Dancing with the Stars.
What the audience saw did not even scratch the surface long enough to showcase his true talent: his wicked sense of humor. Yes, clearly he is hot as hell, ay caramba!, but besides that, he is HILARIOUS.
The type of things that boy will do and say for a laugh would leave you sweating like a hooker in church. Some of it is really inappropriate, which is precisely was he is so awesome and KROQ listeners love him. Psycho Mike has the type of genuine comedic timing that is borderline brilliant.
Mike Catherwood is not Fred Astaire. Hell, he’s not even Fred Flintstone on the dance floor, but here’s what he is; he is gorgeous, hysterically funny, built like he was carved out of stone, witty, intelligent, charming, charismatic, resilient, admirable, thoughtful, and although he may talk about farting, his small penis, boners, and other unappealing subject matters, he really is a good guy, the type of boy that was raised right by his mama, the kind of guy that opens doors for you and brings you flowers for no reason… The kind of guy that coaches a little league team. He is a responsible worker and a great friend.
Mike is the person you call if you ever need anything at all and without hesitation, he is the person that would be right there because you need him.
He also does and says some really gross things, but that just makes him well-rounded, right?
“Psycho” Mike Catherwood WILL be a household name soon enough.
Mike, we are so proud of you. Do us one favor, never ever feel like you have to dance ever again. We love you just the way you are.
Did Kevin’s tutelage help or hurt Mike’s dancing. You decide.*
