Could The Urkel Dance Have Saved Jaleel White?
May 02, 2012
Jaleel White was booted off Dancing with the Stars last night but the former Family Matters stars now says he regrets not breaking out his infamous Urkel dance to wow fans and the judges.
Appearing on last night's Jimmy Kimmel with pro partner Kym Johnson, Jaleel responded to the question he's consistently been getting since first being picked to compete on the ABC dance hit -- "Are you going to bring back the Urkel dance?"
"I waited too long," Jaleel confessed, adding that he was waiting to channel Urkel during the show's freestyle competition. He said it would have also been difficult for him to switch into nerd mode when other DWTS contestants were taking their dances far more serious and focusing on sex appeal.
"Did you see Will Levy out there?" he asked Kimmel. "Where was there a chance for me to do (the Urkel)? These guys were taking their shirts off and keeping it sexy."
