Any Dancing With the Stars fans out there? Kristi Yamaguchi was named this season's champ on last night's season finale, becoming the first woman to win the ABC dance-off since its inaugural season.
The gold medal winning figure skater came into the final contest Tuesday with a perfect score and bested fan favorites Jason Taylor and Cristian de la Fuente to claim the mirrorball trophy. I always thought Kristi had an advantage, being an athlete used to chorography and all. She was so good that I believe she could have a second career.
I admire Jason for overcoming his size and learning something foreign and challenging and excelling at it.
Christian I could have watched cook dinner or brush his teeth, you know. Yowza. Not only is he a stunner to look at, but what a nice guy - and a true champion for hanging in there good-naturedly with a serious injury. The actor ruptured a tendon in his biceps while dancing on April 28, but delayed the surgery necessary to repair it so he could continue in the contest.
I posted more pictures of Cristian, because seriously, who would you rather see, Kristi or Christian?
"It's about wanting something in life and going for it," he said. "In this case it was a dance show, but it can be anything that you're afraid of. Go for it. Do it. The reward that you get when you put your heart, your soul, everything you've got in something, it's priceless."
I liked Cheryl Burke better this season. Did you know she and Gerard Butler are an item?
And what about Shannon and Derek? I guess he liked her bod, but what a whiner. Derek, honey, you can do better.
Not that I have an opinion or anything! LOL
I always feel bad when my favorite pro dancers get stuck with a dud. Poor Julianne didn't stand a chance, but she was a trouper. And she had plenty to keep her busy this season, what with her new CD released and presenting on the country music awards.
Is she just an all around doll or what?
