Oh, I like Jesse Metcalfe. He was great on the DALLAS reboot. Wonder if he can dance?

Chrishell Stause is also going to be on. There’s photos of her out there arriving at a dance rehearsal with Geb or whatever his name is (one of the male pros).

I may have to watch, fast forwarding past Tyra. I also read that Chrishell Strause is competing, along with a Disney actress.

I understand what you mean about Tyra. To me, the show was Tom and the way he interacted with the judges as well as the dancers. Loved the way he would roll his eyes when Bruno would start on one of his antics. I wonder if Tyra can hold her own with this and fill some very big shoes. Time will tell.

Pretty big coups for a show that, in the last two or three seasons, has had to stretch the term “Stars” pretty hard to encompass some of the people competing. Heche and Metcalfe definitely qualify, at least in my book.

(Are the dates in the story correct? Has it really been six years since the Dallas reboot went off the air? Wow.)

That said–let me know when Tom Bergeron comes back.

‘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.
