Nick Carter Loses ‘Dancing with the Stars’ to a Nature Conservationist

Congrats, Bindi!

Bindi Irwin beat out forever-heartthrob Nick Carter and Alek Skarlatos for the coveted Mirrorball Trophy on Tuesday night’s finale of Dancing With the StarsIrwin and her dance partner Derek Hough received a perfect score on their final freestyle routine dedicated to her father, the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin.

The 17-year-old Aussie expressed her pure joy on Twitter following the big win.



Hough is the first dance pro on Dancing with the Stars to rake in six Mirrorball Trophies. Julianne Hough’s brother suggested to Us Weekly that Irwin should keep her own statuette “in the zoo in the middle of the croc pond”. “Surrounded by all the crocodiles and put it in the middle so they’ll be guarding it,” says Hough. “So everybody can look at it from afar but the crocodiles will be all around it.”
