Dancing With The Stars: Week 10 - The Winner


Although seemed to be the crowd (and female) favorite going into tonight’s show, the IndyCar Series driver was actually running behind when it came to overall performance.  Thanks to the four 30’s she achieved throughout the competition, the was averaging 27.4 points per dance.  Helio’s three 30’s put him just a hair behind at 26.9.  (, with 24.5, was obviously a distant third.)

Crowd favorite or not, I think most viewers would have been satisfied with either a Melanie or Helio victory; both dancers were equally deserving.  Unfortunately, this thing called ‘audience votes’ threatened to throw a wrench into an otherwise great season.  As much as I liked Marie, she remained in this competition far too long.  (Apparently devotees and their dolls have been calling to keep her alive.)

But in the end, it really shouldn’t have been a surprise that Helio would walk away with the disco ball in hand.  As I’ve learned from one of my favorite episodes, two girls pitted against one guy will always split the votes.  These two ladies against a cute, dimpled, charming guy—well, they never stood a chance.
