Brooke Burke wins Dancing with the Stars!
Model Brooke Burke took home the famous mirror ball trophy last night, when she was crowned the winner of Dancing with the Stars.
The night before, the 37-year-old mother of four performed an outstanding Grease-inspired freestyle routine (shown below) with her partner, Derek Hough, which the judges dubbed "the best freestyle" they've ever seen. Naturally, they were given a score of 10.
Her Viennese waltz last night earned her a perfect score with the judges, giving her an 88 out of 90 in total (including her scores from a group Samba routine).
Football star, Warren Sap and his partner Kym Johnson were the runner-ups, and N*Sync member, Lance Bass and his partner Lacey Schwimmer were in third.
Brooke is no Kristi Yamaguchi, but I am ecstatic for Derek! He is truly one of the best professionals on the show (along with his sister, Julianne Hough and his best friend, Mark Ballas), and he definitely deserved to win!
What did you think of the final outcome?
