THANK YOU to the fans who voted countless times to make us your champions….Nyle is so deserving and we can’t thank you enough for the endless support and love 😘😘😘
DiMarco jumped when the results were revealed before being quickly engulfed in hugs from supporters and his pro partner, Peta Murgatroyd. “This is such an amazing feeling. This whole thing has been so incredible,” she said, adding that it was all because of DiMarco.
Show co-host Tom Bergeron handed the pair the mirror ball trophy, and DiMarco beamed and hugged him.
VanZant came in second [with partner Mark Ballas], and she told Bergeron that she was happy to have been a part of the show.“ I’m going to remember it forever,” she said.
Zee took third place. She thanked her pro partner [Val Chmerkovskiy] for making her a meteorologist who can dance. “I’m just so grateful for the opportunity to be here …,” Zee said, adding that she hopes viewers saw her example and realized “that you can be more than one thing.”
