The actor and professional partner Kym Johnson fell into the bottom two along with Disney star Roshon Fegan and his professional partner Chelsie Hightower.
Fegan and Hightower then took on White and Johnson in the final 'dance duel' of the season, simultaneously dancing the rumba for the judges. They unanimously elected to save Fegan.
White said following his elimination: "You know, I'm gonna tell you a secret. I really only though I would last about three dances in the competition, and I wanted to get three good dances off. That's what I told my mum!
"I've made incredible friends, the fans have been incredible. I love Roshon Fegan, I'm happy they saved him, he's got a bright future ahead of him.
Turning to judge Len Goodman, he said: "Len, give him a ten, okay?"
Bruno Tonioli said that he felt Fegan was much stronger in the dance duel than in previous weeks and praised White for the work he had done on his arm placement.
The week's AT&T Spotlight performance featured Richard 'Steelo' Vazquez. Performing for the first time since his recovery from a ruptured brain aneurysm, Vazquez took to the dancefloor with his group The Groovaloos and received a raucous standing ovation from both studio audience and the judges.
Professional Derek Hough hailed Vazquez's performance as "one of the most inspiring things I've seen on the show".
Eliminated contestant Gavin DeGraw also returned to the show, performing his new single 'Sweeter', accompanied by a routine from his former professional partner Karina Smirnoff with Louis van Amstel.
Dancing with the Stars airs on Mondays and Tuesdays on ABC.
