‘Bachelorette’ Alum Kaitlyn Bristowe Wins The Mirrorball Trophy In Season Finale of ‘Dancing with the Stars’

In a season which saw a new host and executive producer, Tyra Banks, no studio audience due to Covid-19, three former soap stars in the competition and some too-close-to-call moments, four celebrity dancers and their pro partners danced their hearts out on Monday night in the season finale of Dancing with the Stars.

Hoping to take home the Mirrorball Trophy were: Kaitlyn Bristowe, Nelly, Justina Machado and Nev Schulman along with their pro dance partners.

The four couples danced two numbers – one dance they performed earlier in the season, and one freestyle.

When the dust settled with the judges scores combined with the popular vote at-home, and no judges ‘save’ at play to decide the final fate of the season, here is how it went down when the results were revealed,

In fourth place was Justina Machado and her partner, Sasha Farber.  In third place was Nelly and his pro partner Daniella Karagach,  That left two of the top celebrity dancers in the entire field as Tyra Banks handed down the results as Kaitlyn Bristowe and Nev Shulman held on to their partners for life hoping their name would be called.

Next, Tyra announced that it was former ‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe and her partner Artem Chigvintsev who won it all and took the coveted Mirrorball Trophy as a let-down Nev Shulman and his partner, Jenna Johnson looked on.

Interesting enough, Bristowe follows former ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown as the champ of the ballroom dance floor competition, as Brown won the previous season 28

So, did the right couple win season 29 of DWTS? Let us know via the comment section below. But first check out Kaitlyn and Nev’s final performances that helped determine the winner.

I think Justina should have been third, not fourth.

I was rooting for Nev to win, but I’m fine with Kaitlyn and Artem winning. They also danced very well.

I really enjoyed Nev’s dances. I hope he continues.

UPDATED: Cody Rigsby, the Peloton fitness instructor, who is competing for the Mirror Ball trophy in the all-new season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars has been diagnosed with Covid-19.

The news comes just days after his pro dance partner, Cheryl Burke announced she tested positive for Covid-19 and had to quarantine, thus she and Cody did not dance in the ballroom on Monday night.  However, they were judged by one of their rehearsals, which was pre-taped.

However news on Friday morning revealed that Cody and Cheryl will dance this coming Monday night in a unique format – dancing in separate rooms next week. Good Morning America retweeted the news, from ABc7 Los Angeles correspondent Zohreen Shah. ( You can see the tweet below)

Previously, now comes word via an Instagram post and message from Rigsby himself  that he, too, is now  sidelined from the competition.

Cody expressed: “I have tested positive for Covid again, the second time this year. I right now have really mild symptoms: congestion, little bit of a headache, cough, but in comparison to when I had Covid earlier this year, it is night and day, so that must be the vaccine and the antibodies working. So we’re super grateful for that. As far as my fate on Dancing With the Stars, we are still trying to figure that out right now, so please be patient with that answer.

In his written post, Rigsby added: ” Hi friends, I wanted to check in with you to share some news. While I am fully vaccinated and took many precautions, following CDC guidelines, I recently tested positive for Covid-19. To properly rest and recover as well as avoid exposing others, I will be taking a break in the coming days. I appreciate all your support, and I’ll be back as soon as I am ready.”

So, what do you think of Cody now being diagnosed with Covid after Cheryl? What do you think about the latest update that they will dance on Monday in a unique format? Share your thoughts below.  We are wishing Cody and Cheryl speedy recoveries!

She went on to say, “It’s so overwhelming because it’s Sunday and the show’s tomorrow. I figured I should let you guys know since I’ve been as open and as a real and as vulnerable as I could be here.  I just hope I didn’t spread it. For those of you who don’t think COVID is a real thing, it’s f–king real, dude.”
