Former Bachelor contestant and TV personality Melissa Rycroft and her professional partner Tony Dovolani were crowned the champions of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars Tuesday night.
Rycroft, a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, came in third during the eighth season of the reality competition. She and Dovolani moved into the finals with General Hospital star, Kelly Monaco, who finished in third place, and Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, who came in second place.
“I think you can see the affection held for this couple. This is normally where we would talk to them… but we’ll let this breathe for a moment,” host Tom Bergeron said before he presented the couple with their mirror ball trophy.
I didn’t have Melissa picked as my winner. She gorgeous, but I’ve always been adamant that the contestants shouldn’t have prior dance experience. Nonetheless, congrats to the winners!
