Jake T. Austin On His 'DWTS' Elimination: 'I Wish I Could've Done Better'

Jake T. Austin and Jenna Johnson talk to the hosts of Dancing With The Stars after being the first couple eliminated from the competition on Tuesday night (September 20) in Los Angeles.

The team — Team JSquared — said goodbye to the ballroom floor after being put in jeopardy along with Ryan Lochte, Maureen McCormick and Amber Rose.

“I wish I could’ve done better. I mean, there’s mixed emotions. Overall I’m really lucky, I’m really happy,” Jake shared with EOnline afterwards. “Just a little bummed out, other than that this was an awesome experience.”

He added about his experiences, “This was my worst fear to be honest with you. When we were standing on that stage I was like, ‘Please don’t let it be me.’ And it happened. You prepare for the worst, hope for the best. It was the opportunity of a lifetime. Learning from Jenna was an unforgettable experience and I mean that in every sense of the word. It was incredible.”

“It’s not as easy as it looks. It’s obviously a way to test yourself…I’m really happy I got out there and I did it.”

Jenna Johnson Makes a Deal With Jake T. Austin - Read Her 'DWTS' Week Two Blog!

Every week, professional dancer Jenna Johnson will be writing a blog for JustJaredJr.com and sharing exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from Dancing With the Stars Season 23.

For week two, Jenna opened up to JJJ about her partnership with Jake T. Austin and their Cha Cha:

“Week 2… Diego was sooooo fuego!!” Jenna writes. “What a whirlwind this week was. Jake and I had the challenge of bringing his animated childhood TV character, Diego, into a real life Cha Cha-ing Diego! Our goal was to make it the 2.0 version… A little more mature and a whole lot sexier. I played the role of Baby Jaguar and I have to give it to the wardrobe department who literally slayed the design! My outfit was absolutely incredible.”

Jenna continues, “This week’s rehearsals were a blast. Getting into character was soooo much fun. Jake kept doing his young Diego voice while we were practicing and every time he did, I was rolling on the floor laughing. It was scary how good he was at that voice still. The Cha Cha came very natural to Jake so that made this week so enjoyable because I got to see him improve day by day! But we both felt pressure because we were tied for the second lowest score last week. I was pretty tough on him because I really wanted him to get better, but I think I was a little too hard on him one day so I brought him a peace offering cake to remind him how much I really do love him!!”

Jenna Johnson gets a little embarrassed when dating rumors arise during her interview with Jake T. Austin at Hollywood Today Live.

Team JSquared took some time out of practice to chat about their partnership, Dancing With The Stars and the Ryan Lochte incident that happened during the premiere.

So much goes into a live show and at the same time, I understand that some people are upset but this is a chance for everyone to showcase their talent,” Jake shared. “I don’t think that that was the time and place for it. I’ve had the chance to hang out with him outside of work, and he’s really just a humble guy.”

Jake added about those dating rumors between him and Jenna, “I do have a girlfriend. She’s actually here in LA and came out here to support me,” Jake dished about Danielle Caesar.
