    Dancing With The Stars

    It seems to me, that if one has a gold olympic medal, one is at an advantage in this competition. Apollo, Kristy, Shawn

    I think the only one who didn't win was Maurice Green (2000 Olympic gold medalist in the 100 meters).

    Certainly the training that Kriti and Shawn had, in terms of body control as well as learning choreographed routines quickly, paid off.

    I think the main thing, though, is that to win Dancing with the Stars you have to come in with a big fan base. I'm sure there must be Shawn Johnson fan clubs all over the Internet.

    I'm glad Shawn won although I thought Gilles Marini was the better dancer. I voted for Shawn because she tried so hard and she gave it her best even though she looks like she gained a lot of weight.

    I would have voted for Gilles just based on him taking his shirt off.

    Funny waiting to the end to discus this.?????

    It was a good season. Think Marc B went a little crazy with the spotlight. And ever sense the announcement that Cheryl was up for the sexiest woman in the world award she has a not so good look about her i.m.o.

    Gilles had it naturally and Shawn had to try much harder to overcome other training as well she is young - only thing that helped and didn't hinder is her "spot on technique." She grew a lot mentally and I can't be anything but proud of her - and I made some money on this one! Win Win for SeaniBu!!!!! she is the only one I put the Benjamins on.

    Melissa, ... nothing special for me. Very good looking as well but just didn't do the trick for many apparently.

    I am also happy for Shaw and her win, BUT Gilles was the better dancer and should have won. Figured Melissa would come in 3rd and thought Shawn would be 2nd with Gilles 1st. Oh well...that's how the mirror ball turns...Can't wait till next season....

    Shawn was cute

    Gilles was hot in body and dance

    That third place lady whom I thought had the best rhythm should have won.

    I pretty much agree. I loved Melissa but the last two weeks or so she seemed to regress. I think that Giles played up the sexy guy factor a little too much. Pulling off his shirt whenever possible seemed desperate. He was too good of a dancer for that. very happy for Shawn. She seemed a little lost after the olympics and I hardly recognized her after gaining all that weight. I this gives her the confidence she needs to find her own path in life.
