It was a night full of surprises on last night’s finale of DWTS. Disney star Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas (on his birthday no less) were the first couple to be eliminated, and it was tough to see these strong competitors go.
That left NFL player Hines Ward and actress Kristie Alley as the final two – and ultimately each took home something special.
Ward won the coveted mirror ball trophy and Alley won a newfound confidence and noticeably slimmer bod, reportedly losing 38 inches since the show premiered 10 weeks ago.
Hines isn’t the first athlete to take the trophy. Pro athletes have won six times in the past 12 seasons. Other sport star champions are NFL star Emmitt Smith, speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno, Indy Car driver Helio Castroneves, figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi and gymnast Shawn Johnson.
Were you surprised by Hines Win?
