Dancing With The Stars Winner Is Emmitt Smith

November 15, 2006 09:10 PM by Joe Reality

Emmittsmith_winsAfter a recap of the Dancing with the Stars 3 final performance show, Len Goodman asked both Emmitt Smith and Mario Lopez to do an encore.  Emmitt Smith & Cheryl Burke danced the Samba, while Mario Lopez & Karina Smirnoff danced freestyle.  After the final two danced with their partners for one last time, Tysonia Sichinga from the Slim-Fast Dance Challenge talked about how her life had changed since appearing on Dancing with the Stars.

After a recap of the first several weeks of Dancing with the Stars 3, Tucker Carlson, Shana Moakler, Harry Hamlin, and Vivica A. Fox returned for one last performance.  In a separate routine, Willa Ford, Sara Evans, Jerry Springer, Monique Coleman, and Joey Lawrence also returned for a final performance.   

Host Tom Bergeron asked the eliminated contestants what their favorite moments were from the show, Jerry Springer initially joked “when they said I could keep the shirt.”  However, Monique Coleman delivered an even better line, saying “the day that I found out that Jerry Springer was my dad.”

As the final two couples waited on stage for the results, host Tom Bergeron revealed that Emmitt Smith & Cheryl Burke were the champions of Dancing with the Stars.  After hugging his partner Cheryl Burke, Emmitt Smith said “We’ve come a long way, we really have, and to Mario and Karina, you know they’ve been true champions throughout the whole entire event.  They have raised the bar so high for dancing and challenged everybody that was in this competition to go farther, and to you my friend, I appreciate you very much, I appreciate your hard work, your effort, I mean you’ve been a true gentleman.”

    This SUCKS!!!!!!!!! They shouldn’t have won!!! Mario and Karina were clearly the better dancers and the only reason that Emmitt won was because of his football fan base. This how is a clear popularity contest and you can tell because Emmitt Smith won. To all the people who voted for Emmitt, f**k off b****es!!!!!!

    I voted for Mario & Karina and also had a hard time with the phone lines. Honestly, I thought Mario & Karina should of won. But that Emmitt & Cheryl, they did FANTASTIC. This was the Best Dancing with the Stars yet. The next one is going to be a really hard one. These two couples handled themselves with respect and grace. They were both winners!!

    Both couples did an outstanding job throughout the competition. America voted, all individuals and couples have a fan base that voted; Emmitt’s and Cheryl’s fans made it through more phone lines.

    i am not happy..i loved mario and he was a better dancer all around. his footwork and everything. emmitts lifts werent good at all in the finale. he did not deserve it. i am not bitter because it is just a show and emmitt did do a great job considering i wanted him out early on.

    I voted for Mario and Karina, not that Emmit and Cheryl weren’t good, but clearly Mario was the better dancer. It seemed like Emmitt was more popular then Mario and that’s what made him the winner. I feel, along with alot of other people that there should not be any outside judging. A panal of proffesional dancers should be the judges only.
    However the show is very exciting and entertaining.

    Mario may SEEM like a “nice” sweet boy. But he cheated. First on his ex wife and now by not informing ABC of his prior dance experience…
    Karina, I feel for.
    She’ll get hurt cause his only love is his Mommy.

    Mario was by far the better dancer and this is coming from a true football fan. I was more disapointed in the judges who are so called experts giving Emitt tens all through the final. He wasn’t bad but tens come on. Popularity won over quality. What else is new.

    Emmett deserved the win. He represents the everyday man. If he could look so graceful dancing then anyone can.

    Emmit is not a dancer but he turned out to be a good one!!!!

    November 15th, 2006 at 9:55 pm

    I am thrilled to see that Emmitt and Cheryl won! Yes! Of Course, Mario and Katrina are excellent dancers, but the viewers chose who they wanted… Emmitt and Cheryl! He really put the moves on every, single week.. He made it interesting, and we noticed his improvement every single week. Charisma, sex appeal, quick feet, and a beautiful smile will get my vote any day!

  15. Disappointed Says:
    November 15th, 2006 at 10:01 pm

    Mario is the better dancer, BY FAR. Emmett was good, but it was his NFL Superbowl fame that won the trophy …. not his dancing!

  16. Janet Says:
    November 15th, 2006 at 10:07 pm

    The best dancers won!
    Emitt did a fantastic job week after week, completely out of his elimate, with no dance experience. Mario set the bar from the beginning but, earned his scolding for not following the rules and trying to entertain, he had previous dance experience and a little more personal chemistry with his partner.

    Joan, you’re a jerk and a loser. What a miserable person you must be to post something like that. You are probably indicative of Emmitt’s fan base. Ever had a date in your life? I didn’t think so. Mario had no more dance experience then the girl who starred in High School musical. So Joan, drop dead, please.

  19. Julia Says:
    November 15th, 2006 at 10:17 pm

    I could only get my 5 votes in online for Emmit and Cheryl, but they won anyway. I am happy that Emmit and Cheryl won this year.

    And all the complaining about it being a popularity contest– why do you think Mario was still in the contest after not following the rules 2 weeks in a row. If the judges that there way his skill would have been eliminated long ago. Besides Mario and Karina were good, but not the best. They were out of sync last night even though the judges did not admit what they saw.

  20. West Coaster Says:
    November 15th, 2006 at 10:18 pm

    The show hasn’t started yet on the west coast. I jokingly told my wife (who has been favoring Mario) that Emmitt (who I have been favoring) had won. Since the show is over (east coast) we just googled it and you all know the rest. It HAS been great entertainment, but even I (deep down inside) knew that Mario was the better dancer. BTW, is it true OJ Simpson will be on DWTS next season?

  21. Linda Says:
    November 15th, 2006 at 10:19 pm

    I have no clue about football. But I thought Emmitt was the best dancer on the final night. Those shoulder moves! Never seen anything like it! So happy for Emmitt and Cheryl. They deserve the trophy on merit.

  22. Donna Says:
    November 15th, 2006 at 10:26 pm

    This was a dance competition, not a personality competition, therefore, Mario undoubtedly was the best dancer. I would like to see Emmit try to do the moves that Mario did. Emmit may be a nice guy, but not the best dancer. His fan base won him the trophy, not his dancing ability.

  23. clarissa Says:
    November 15th, 2006 at 10:28 pm

    I am a professional dancer and i can definitely say that Mario & Karina were the better dancers. mario did an excellent job for someone who does not dance professionally. Emmit & cheryl was ok on freestyle but mario & karina’s freestyle was definitely one to win the finals. It had a mixture of the 80′s, 90′s & todays young moves. I loved it their freestyly. Sorry they didnt win. It was very dissappointing. Emmits superbowl fame & popularity was the reason they won.

  24. bonnie Says:
    November 15th, 2006 at 10:30 pm

    i think that emmitt and cheryl deserved to win. mario should have been disqualified as soon as the show managers realized he was having a personal relationship with his partner. that was unprofessional and grounds for dismissal. what is wrong with him? can’t he keep his gun in the holster for even a tv series? add that to his lack of respect for the dances in the beginning and thinking the rules did not apply to him, and there you have it: a spoiled brat. on entertainment tonight his mother said if he did not win, “she would make a trophy for him”. that is probably the story of his life. i agree with the previous post – nobody, no woman, anyway, will get between mario and his mommy…. YEA!EMMITT! you showed style, grace, couth, and respect for everyone there. you deserved to win.

  25. Mina Says:
    November 15th, 2006 at 10:33 pm

    This is supposed to be a dancing competition, and based on dancing skills alone EVERYONE KNOWS IN THEIR HEARTS that Mario and Karina won this competition. However, Emit won because he is more popular due to his NFL fame/titles etc. thus has a larger fan base that voted and supported him based on his football fame, not based on dancing alone.
    I think for the finals the votes should be decided 50% by the dancing with the stars judges, and 50% fromn special international ballroom dance guests judges, in that manner, since this is A dance competion and not a popularity competion, the outcome will truy reward what the competion is supposed to be about.
    congratulation to emmit for this new achievement, but in my heart Mario led this competion and kept me watching the show, and in my heart he is the true champion.

  26. Tata Says:
    November 15th, 2006 at 10:35 pm

    i think all of those thought it was a popularity contest are wrong. Btw the two guys, mario is the more popular one. Since he didnt win, it is very clear that people thought Emmitt was a better dancer. Emmitt deserved to win

  27. bonnie Says:
    November 15th, 2006 at 10:41 pm

    everyone keeps talking about skill. i’m sorry, but there is a lot more that goes into making a champion than simply skills. it is a combination of things, integrity, grace, manners, sportsmanship, and many other qualities. mario may have had the skill, but he had none of the other qualities. arrogance is not on the list of championship qualities. if it was, then HE would have won!

  28. Rice Says:
    November 15th, 2006 at 10:43 pm

    He is fine, faithful to his wife and talented. I totally agree with Joan. Mario just knew he won…but he didn’t so let him eat his humble pie and let’s watch Emmitt smash it in his face as he eats it.

    Don’t hate the player hate the game because the true player won the game…just as he did on the field…not with merritt but with true skills. So….Suck it!!!

    Although ive been voting for mario and karinga all along, i have to say that emmitt stepped it up during finals, and his freestyle was the cherry on top. However, Mario is the true winner, the best dancer, with elegance, grace, sportsmanship, and whatever else ms. Bonnie said he doesnt have. Obviously bonnie, he didnt win because he’s not a football star! Get your facts straight. ITS A DAMN SHAME MARIO DIDN’T WIN.

    Joan is actually right about Mario…I grew up competing against him in dance competitions that guy was on stage dancing from about age 5-18! He may be the better technical dancer, but he doesn’t embrace the spirit of the show. Shame on ABC for putting a celebrity on there with that much dance training ballroom or not! Bravo for to Emmitt’s fans for seeing through the snow job that Mario and Karina were laying on everyone week after week!

  34. Poorman Says:
    November 15th, 2006 at 11:17 pm

    Why does everyone say that Mario was arrogant? He never bragged about himself,was soft spoken, always thanked the judges and voters, and was not cocky like Vivica Fox. I guess when one dancer is so much better than the other it is natural for some people to rally around the underdogs.

  35. Anonymous Says:
    November 15th, 2006 at 11:18 pm

    Emmitt deserved to win. Why? Because he represents what this show is all about. When he came to the show he was a terrible dancer, but he kept getting better and worked his way up. As for Mario, he came to the show already having the talent. Haha Karina looked so mad when they announced the winner.

    Huh, never been to any kind of contest before? The best talent should win, period. If you’re in a bowling tournment and you bowl a 220 and your opponent bowls a 219, should he win because he was a most improved bowler over the year? No. The top score should win because of the end, not the journey.

He lied from day one about his experience and it should have come down to Emmitt and Joey….the true people who had to learn from day one, not already know everything….Mario cheated….Emmitt is a true winner and gentleman!!!! Go Emmitt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. theone Says:
    November 16th, 2006 at 12:09 am

    Emmit won because he was able to relate to the fans as well as becoming a decent dancer. No matter what you’re doing in life, you have to sell it and want it more than anyone else. I enjoyed watching Emmit more and thought he should’ve won. He also showed the most improvement.

  41. Naomi Cordell Says:

    I tried several times to vote for Mario but got busy signal. On a vote this important the lines should have been open. I know I tried from 9;00 TO 10:00et and could not get through. I wounder how many other people tried. In all the weeks who got the most call in votes. I think this was Mario.

    Emmitt had so charisma. He related to the audience.

    I felt Mario was more into the camera angles and the showmanship. And last night Mario seemed…uh, worn out. As if he had been “busy” all night.

    Congratulations to Emmit, but thanks to Mario for making this show so exciting and raising the bar every week. In my book, he and Karina were the dancing champions.
    I must add that I also appreciate the effort Emmit put in his dance routines, and how he improved every week, but the true finalists should have been Joey and Mario.
    In a professional dance competition, the dancers are judged on their dancing skills, not on their personal lives, or mistakes they have made in their lives!!
    Realize this is a talent show, not judgment day!, and based on the premises of the show -”DANCING” – is the name of the competion, not who should win because they are good fathers, good husbands, how many titles they have won in the past!!!
    I think it is arrogant and unnecessary to insult and pass judgement on the character and moral values of a contestant
    How does one even know what is true about their personal lives, we only know what the tabloids and magazines wants us to know.

    Mario is single and could kiss and flirt with his beautiful partner Karina, just like Max and Willa appeared to have chemistry as a couple.
    Mario was always a professional, and receptive of any criticism. He made some mistakes at the beginning of the competition and was reprimanded for it, and he was able to bring his best after that.

    Mario and karina for our family you are the true champions of dancing with the stars.

  47. Derrik Says:
    November 16th, 2006 at 12:50 am

    What most of you dont know it that Mario had a definite advantage over everybody else. He HAS HAD PREVIOUS DANCE EXPERIENCE! Though not “Professional experience” he has had some training from professionals. I know first hand. This program was meant for individuals with no prior training. To me Emit is the true winner.

  48. Maura Says:
    November 16th, 2006 at 12:53 am

    Karina was not gracious in losing the competition. It was obvious she was angry. Clearly, Mario & Karina were the better dancers technically, but Emmitt and Cheryl had charisma and warmth that the other two lacked – especially Karina. I’m sure if the situation had been reversed, Emmitt and Cheryl would have been gracious to the winners. It takes more than technical ability to make a star and a winner – and Emmitt and Cheryl have it!

  49. Cindy Says:
    November 16th, 2006 at 1:27 am

    I love to watch ALL of the dancers. Yes, popularity plays into the viewer votes–of course, it does. But, I think Emmitt and Cheryl were exceptional! For a big man, Emmitt had grace and hustle. He could move and shake and that never ending smile. A lot of credit goes to Cheryl, who must be, besides a fabulous dancer, an incredible teacher. They were a fabulous pair and I’m glad they won. Congrats big man.

  50. Stupid Emmitt fans Says:
    November 16th, 2006 at 1:40 am

    You made this show a joke. Emmitt has now become the Jerry Springer of this competition. His dancing did not come close to Mario’s, not even Joey’s or Monique’s even. What a bunch of morons you Emmitt fans. No wonder Karina was traumatized. She, just like any intelligent and logical person knew that Mario is the best dancer and best performer with the presence and charisma of a true champion. I hope Emmitt and Sheril(sp?) disappear. Grrr.

    Despite the millions of illegal immigrants from Mexico who were probably voting from hacked cell phones, Mario still couldn’t pull off the victory. I’m so glad that Emmitt and Cheryl won. I can’t stand Mario and his less than charming-sore loser man-like looking partner Karina.

  54. MiMi Says:
    November 16th, 2006 at 2:44 am

    I think the real winner is sherryl(SP). Mario would have won if he had a better partner! There was something about Karina that put me off. Go Emmet and Cheryl. For Cheryl this is your secound Year in a row and that tells me u are a very descent and professional girl. Karina pls learn the rules of the game from cheryl…..Maybe you will do better next year!

  55. Build the Border Bridge Says:
    November 16th, 2006 at 2:56 am

    Anyone Agree? Emmitt couldn’t even enjoy his moment in the spotlight as the winner of DWTS without the very unsportsmanlike conduct of Mario and Karina. Emmitt spent his whole speech congratulating Mario and saying what a gentlemen he was and Karina returned the favor with her sour looks and comments that Mario was her champion. That was really uncalled for.

    They said nothing complimentary about Emmitt and didn’t congratulate him either. What poor sports.

    This is the very reason why Emmitt won, he progressed the most with his dancing ability with no previous dance experience, plus his personality, warmth and class won over the viewers.

    Cocky and arrogant attitudes do not win these kind of competitions look at American Idol…its the same thing. People get voted off that have amazing talent because of their arrogant personalities.

    I am hoping they don’t have Karina return next season!!

    Congrats Emmitt!!!!

  56. Luis Says:
    November 16th, 2006 at 3:14 am

    Im not expert on dancing nor on football, but based on their performance with out favoring anybody’s for their popularity anybody would know that Mario and Karina were the better dancers. I do like Emmitt but if it wouldn’t be for Cheryl they would never have gone to the finals. I also try to call for Mario and couldn’t get through.

  57. cris Says:
    November 16th, 2006 at 3:18 am

    Karina was obviously sad that Mario did not win I think that is why she said her true champion is Mario, which was nice because Mario knew he was not going to win against an NFL Legend. I mean c’mon they had a tv viewing party in Texas just for Emmit complete with NFL players and fans to vote for the finale and rally support. Mario should have won, but it’s is okay, if it was a real competition without the public vote I think Mario would have won. It’s reality tv, remember what happened to American Idol?

  58. Golfer Says:
    November 16th, 2006 at 3:21 am

    This is “Dancing with the Stars”, not a professional dance contest. The judges tied Emmitt and Mario, so technically and performance they were even. BUT it’s the people’s vote (which is the premise of the show for the final outcome)that put the better couple in the winner’s circle. The people’s choice spoke loud and clear who they wanted! Emmitt and Cheryl were deserving of their trophy because the people know who the best overall couple is. They give everyday people hope they can achieve their goals with hard work, discipline and a good teacher. Mario was in it to win for Karina as she was for herself. Emmitt set the tone for learning something outside of his comfort zone, which is lesson to all of us. We can do anything we set our minds to and focus! Thank you for the lesson and motivation to GO FOR IT!

    I think what set aside for Emmett and Cheryl was that , Cheryl made his partner “shine”!! She did’nt take the spotlight from her partner. You can see this by the way she points @ Emmett when he dances.

  60. Jack Says:
    November 16th, 2006 at 4:29 am

    Emmitt Smith won because he was manly, cool, and has grace. Plus, he has a dynamite partner in the form of Cheryl, who knows the right things to do to win.

    Mario looked LESS manly AND LESS cool to too many viewers. Plus, he and his man-like looking female partner were way too arrogant.

    Emmitt and his partner “pulled” you into the dance with them. They made you feel good just watching them have fun.

    Mario just did the steps like a well programmed robot. The dance steps were technically accurate, but it LACKED SOUL, FUN, COOL, and did not have enough manliness (in comparison to Emmitt).

    Emmitt fun performances easily crossed race, culture, and sex lines to pull people in to vote for him. Mario’s and his female “man-thing” arrogance just made to many people turned-off.

    Karina was so arrogant! She cannot hide her sour face when the true winners were announced. What a looser! She should ask Cheryl(WHAT A FINE YOUNG LADY) to teach her some manners. This is a contest, meaning only 1 wil be declared winner, as a competitor, you should expect for the worse or at least prepare yourself for the worse. The least she could have done is to congratulate the winners and save her tears, sour face and not so good comments to herself.

    Congratulations to Emmitt & Cheryl. The best dancer won. Why, becaue it’s about bringing someone in that has no prior dancing skills and making them a true performer. I know alot of you Mario fans are upset and you say to make it judges vote only..well if I recall, in Season 1 was just judges only and Kelly Monico won hands down. And then poor John O’Hurly fans threw a fit and the TV show had another contest and John O’Hurly won because of the popular vote. So all you Mario fans, quit complaining that it was a poplular vote..after all..that’s what you wanted from Season 1. So in my book, the best dancer with no dance skills and popular vote won the contest fair and square. I voted for Emmitt and I’m not a football fan, so quit complaining that he had all football fans. It’s un-football fans that made Emmitt win..fair and square.

    Win or lose, he is the best and I don’t think he hid any info about his past from ABC, and no one should assume he did. He is not a pro and he had a lot to learn about dancing. Karina is a drill sargent of a teacher who’s standards are high.

    Emmitt and Cheryl were the most consistent throughout the whole competition and they observed the rules. Mario may be younger and cuter, but that doesn’t a true champion make. that’s why emmitt walked away with it…besides, you can’t have a dumb kid like mario beating a superbowl hero like emmitt, it goes against the grain of deserving.

    Mario is a wolf in sheeps clothing!

    Hes a womanizer who cheated on his 3 month marriage to Ali Landry (The Doritos girl)and he seems all sweet but hes conceited!!!!!!!!

    His mom is his only woman and he cant even admit him and Karina are an item…

    I am a HUGE Redskins fan and I can tell you Emmitt and Cheryl got my votes because they deserved to win! So anyone out there saying Emmitt won because of his football fans is mistaken. If Emmitt can cause a Redskin fan to vote for him, then he must have deserve to win! He and Cheryl were GREAT, and that is why they won.

    It’s sad so many of you are making nasty personal comments about Mario. Hey – he’s an entertainer, worked hard, and of course, wanted to win. Emmitt has long been in the public spotlight and knows how to turn it on. Calling Mario a Mommy’s boy and Karina “man-like” is really scraping the bottom of the barrel. Have some class, folks.

    Emmitt won, period.
    Mario lost, period.
    Mario supporters can whine and cry and curse all they want but that will not change the fact that Mario lost to Emmitt.

    Emmitt supporters should not argue with Mario supporters because there is no point in that because Emmitt already won. There is no better argument than that.

    All this is a shame! If we cannot just enjoy the fact that this competition was in the fans hands; than why even watch! This show is a chance for us to cheer our favorites to victory and that’s what happened. I’m not here to bash Mario or Karina, but the truth is that they didn’t lose graciously; and that’s the real shame. Trust me, I don’t think Emmit would have treated him the same had the situation been different. It’s just a shame that we can’t all just realize that it IS a TV SHOW and not a life threatening situation. Congratulations to Emmit and Mario. You are BOTH great dancers! The people’s choice won! Keep Dancing!

    I really thought Emmitt & Cheryl were the best. However, I think we are forgeting about how wonderful and professional Karina and Cheryl are. And how these two women were able to teach these guys dances in short period of time and make them look like professionals. And out of the two ladies, Cheryl was the dominant and best dancer. As the show went on you saw constant improvement in Emmitt. And that improvement came from Cheryl’s teaching. By the end, Emmitt and Cheryl was exciting and put on damn go show. To me Mario and Karina never stepped their game up. They started off good and just level off. They were good but no excitement. After you got over the rumors about them sleeping together, there was nothing there. And I felt it was Karina’s responsibilty as the professional to provide the excitement and up their game. She was too busy looking at Mario like he was her last love, while Mario denied the relationship. Look back on some of the past episodes, Karina look like she could scratch Cheryl eyes out. I wonder what the results would have been if Cheryl and Mario danced together. If you remember Cheryl one last season w/ Nick Lachey brother.

    i posted some stuff last night, and then came back to see what others had to say. i also watched both couples on GMA this morning.

    i still stand on what i said last night: generally you feel sorry for people who try hard and lose, but there is not much sympathy for mario and kaRRRRRRRRRina (as mario insisted on pronouncing it) and for good reason: they were sore losers, and they projected that big time. nobody likes a sore loser.

    yes, he was technically good, but he did not put the feeling in it that emmitt did. when emmitt danced, he was loving it and he showed that to the audience. he was there for the pure enjoyment of it. on the other hand, mario projected a striving, conniving, desperation in his dance to “look at me, love me, let me win”. i think that turned a lot of people off. i know it did me.

    also, it was pretty clear that he came out at the beginning already knowing how to dance. he only polished his routines over the weeks. emmitt, on the other hand, had to learn it all from scratch. THAT is true talent.

    give it up, mario lovers. he basically cheated by not revealing his previous dancing experience, and then his arrogance (and that kaRRRRina thing that was SOOOO annoying to most everyone) were the kiss of death for him.

    by the time it was over, emmitt had learned to dance as well as mario, and was a gentleman as well. THAT is what won him the trophy!!!!

    I was sad to see the unsportsmanlike like reaction from Karrrrrina. She is just not real likable. Cheryl is fantastic and a a nice person. Emmitt and Mario are both great guys. I was glad to see Emmitt win. I would have been happy if Mario had won too. They both did a great job.

    I voted for Emmitt. Why? I enjoyed his dancing more than Mario’s. In fact, I muted the TV during Mario’s freestyle and it still didn’t improve things! I thought Mario’s freestyle was awful — I was actually surprised when the judges praised it. So I voted for what I liked and I loved all of Emmitt’s performances on Tuesday night. I imagine that most viewers are like myself — we have absolutely no ballroom dancing training, so we have to judge the performances on what we like rather than technical merit. And ultimately this is about entertainment in the guise of a dance competition. Don’t forget a few weeks ago, the judges told Monique to bring down the technical level so that she could bring more of her personality to the fore.

    BTW I hate football and everything about it so Emmitt was a tough sell for me but a few weeks into the season, I started looking forward to Emmitt’s performances and I was just ho-hum about Mario’s. I simply voted for what I liked.

  77. Lina Says:
    November 16th, 2006 at 4:53 pm

    Mario is obviously a better dancer!!!This show is not about “being popular, great husband, great father, brother”, etc.it is also not about having agreat personality, being famous, or just being a nice guy.This show is about DANCING, so the better dancer should’ve won.Altthough Mario had had a prior experience in dancing, he shouldn’t be penalized for that, it served as a benefit. To whoever voted for Emmit: watch the finale closely. Look at Emmit’s freestyle and Mario’s.COME ON now!This show should be judged by dancing not anything else.

    Personally, I’ve wanted Emmitt and Cheryl to win from the beginning. Mario and Karina were and are good dancers but I think they got cocky at the end thinking that they had the championship in the bag and that’s what caused them that trophy. I don’t live in the US and I sure voted everyweek for the champions!Congrats to Emmitt and Cheryl! Just think, now everyone’s gonna want Cheryl as their partner for next year’s season!

    To all of you democrats out there..stop giving welfare points to Emmitt..he was good, Mario was better, the best DANCER should win, not how you perceive the attitude of the dancers, or the background of the dancers, or if they slept together. In a real dancing contest, Emmitt would have been out in the first round. Mario would have been around longer. Go watch a ballroom competition and see what I mean by talent levels. Do you think those judges care if someone has trained more or has more ability than the other? They sure do, and those people win!

  81. bonnie Says:
    November 16th, 2006 at 7:24 pm

    poorman, what is your problem? now you want to bring politics into this? get real! did you understand the premise of this show at ALL? the JUDGES were there to judge technical merit. they JUDGED emmitt and mario to be equally talented. the AUDIENCE, few if any of whom are capable of judging the technical merit, were there to evaluate the charisma, style and appeal of the dancers. it was done that way purposely. professionals to judge technique and the rest of us to judge appeal. how many times did the judges say that emmitt connected with the audience on some charismatic level and that was so important? over and over! so keep your politics to yourself, and if you don’t like the format, don’t watch the show next year. it is as simple as that. but stop beating up on the people who understood the rules and accepted them. what are you, mario’s other brother or something? jeez!

  82. Megan Says:
    November 17th, 2006 at 12:06 am


    Emmit OBVIOUSLY deserved to win.
    He was awesome when he first started as well as Mario and he was a well rounded dancer that man could dance any dance.

    for Mario

    Mario came out strong and continued to improve and improve. It was unfair that he did have dancing experience but oh well life goes on. But what made people lose their respect for him was that he broke the rules SEVERAL TIMES even after the judges told him to stop. In my opinion I think he should have been gone a long time ago. Really Mario could only dance fast paced songs. Im a dancer and when Mario dances to fast songs WOW its amazing. But when it came down to a slow song…no it wasnt great it wasnt elegant like Emmit. Mario was clearly NOT an all around dancer. And really what made me mad was that throughout the entire season there was always one judge on his side the ENTIRE season and always thought he was perfect even if there were obvious flaws except whenever he broke the rules. Thats what really upseted me. And Marios freestyle wasnt that great…he looked awesoem but Korina didnt really fit in too well but thats my opinion..and her outfit didnt look good at all but again thats me. But yes Mario is a great dancer but he wasnt better than Emmit so stop dissing Emmit seriously.

    Another thing that made me lose respect for Mario and Korena was that they werent very professional and carried an intimate relationshiop throughout the season and they were sore losers and did not congradulate Emmit and Cheryl. Thats why they arent champions you must be one inside and out.

  83. Poorman Says:
    November 17th, 2006 at 12:58 am

    Bonnie, What in the hell are you talking about? Technical merit? I been to more than a few comps in my life and believe me, you don’t see many 10′s much less 16 out of 18. I understand that Emmitt (and I did like Emmitt) is the “everyman”, but the everyman won’t win a real competition. The better dancer will. So do us true dancing fans a favor and keep your uneducated opinions to yourself.

  84. bella Says:

    Why are we arguing over Mario and Emmitt. lets face the facts, Emmitt won and there is nothing else to it. Who cares if Marios moves were good, obviously not good enough! Get over it people.
    I sure hope not to see Karina next season, her attitute was so ugly at the end. That was a complete turn off.
    no matter what anyone
    says about Emmitt’s skills, it does not matter, because he won!

    i came back to this board one last time to see what the final comments would be. poorman, you are sad and pathetic. is this competition outcome the sum and substance of your life? get over it, and stop insulting everyone here who disagrees with you. we are all here to voice our opinions, and they are supposed to be realistic, and deal with the DANCING and the competitors. most everyone did that except for YOU. you insulted me and a few others who did not agree with you by making snide and personal comments that were uncalled for. i wish this board was moderated. you would probably be kicked off. it is a sign of ignorance to attack people just because they disagree with you. intelligent people will try to make their case, not just belittle the opposition.

    this was an ENTERTAINMENT show on tv, for god’s sake, not life or death. your personal opinion of my educational level is irrelevant. i will stack diplomas against you any day of the week. if you are such an “EXPERT”, why didn’t we see YOU dancing on this show as one of the pros? go get a life and stop taking yourself so seriously. i don’t think mario is going to kiss your butt as a thank you for your support, so go get your TV guide and find something to watch now that the dancing show is over. for you, i suggest the jerry springer show. or did HE not dance to your standards, either??

Just because I watch basketball means I can play with Michael Jordan? Give me a break! I think you should be on the Jerry Springer Show as “My husband left me because I was stupid and don’t know anything about dancing but I watch DWTS and suddenly I’m an expert because an ex-football player has a nice smile so that means he a better dancer” Idiot.

YOU ARE THE BEST, TOO. YOU ARE THE SMARTEST PERSON IN THE WHOLE WORLD, AND THE BEST DANCER, AND THE BEST JUST EVERYTHING THERE IS TO BE! okay? are you happy now, sad one? perhaps this will boost your self esteem to a point where you can go forth and function instead of sitting on this website sniping at people for no reason at all. not just me, but the others you took shots at, too. it is easy from the comfort of your own home behind your keyboard. so, sweetie, YOU WIN! does that feel better now???? or will you have to have ONE LAST thing to say here? i bet you do. i bet you can’t just let it go. i bet you have to post just one more time, to get that ego rush from putting down someone else in order to make yourself feel good. so go ahead, take your best shot and get your high. call it my early christmas gift to you!

    Bonnie, you are everything wrong with liberals…just give people things they don’t deserve. Give people welfare, give Emmitt pity points. “Oh, he improved soooo much ~giggle~” “I’ll vote for him because he has a nice smile ~gigglehehe~” If you go to any kind of competition whether it is dancing or sports, do the judges or referees ask each competitor what his or her skill level was when they first started? NO YOU MORON! They say, “Go Ahead and Start” The journey has nothing to do with the finished product in competitions. Do you care that your newspaper was first a tree?

    Man, I come back from San Francisco from a nice Thanksgiving Family Visit just to see Bonnie rant and rave? GEESSSHH. What a loser she is. I haven’t looked a computer in almost a week but I know that Bummie has been waiting every minute of every day at the screen for my jocular reply, kind of like a dog waiting for a pork chop or in actually Bummie waiting for some scraps like the dog-girl she is. Bummie had her Thanksgiving dinner at the Free Store but everyone stared at her because not only was she the fattest person in line(400#)waiting for a Turkey but she ate 3 turkeys by herself and took a drumstick from a little kid as he was biting into it. She ate four pumpkin pies and washed it down with 2 2-liters of diet coke. Then to entertain the homeless crowd that she alone starved, she started imparting her lack of wisdom about DWTS; about how Emmitt won, which resulted in a mass riot in which dozens of homeless people pounded her with the turkey bones and cigarettes she left on the floor, but they dispersed after Bummie looked at them and they all got ill and puked from the evil visage they had witnessed. Some didn’t make it. So Bummie in reality, not only knows nothing about dancing but she killed several homeless people (and ate them too). So Bummie, I emplore you to give up your gluttonous ways, take a fat person dance class, (maybe an old Richard Simmons tape), learn about what you rant and rave about, and apologize to the hundreds, nay, thousands of true dancing fans that post here about the error of your ways.

    okay, poorman, this is the last time i will post to you, and i sincerely mean that. i spent a little time scrolling back through all the posts to see what it was that actually set you off, and it appears to be nothing. so apparently you do have some deep rooted problem, and i mean this with all sincerity and sympathy. this post to you is NOT to agitate, inflame, or annoy you. it is to simply end this and urge you to find some help for yourself. i mean that in all kindness. when i “started “messing” with you, it was all in fun. i spend a good deal of time on the computer for my work, and i take a break every now and then to do something amusing. i bookmarked this site to click on it and see what you were up to. however, it quickly escalated from a lively discussion over opinion on who should have won the dancing contest to your sick and twisted perversions and flights of fancy in creating a persona to attach to me that satisfies some weird ego trip of yours. you know nothing at all about me, yet you needed to CREATE someone in your mind to whom you could address these insults. that is simply sick. there is no other way to describe it. if you need that, i am okay with it. nothing some anonymous whacko on a message board says is going to disturb me or insult me. what your postings HAVE done, however, is deeply worry me about your OWN state of mind and what drives you to do and say the things you do. at this point i fear that to continue with you simply feeds some sick need you have to “spar” with someone else. that cannot be good for you, and it seems to only make you worse and worse as time goes on. you really need to go and find another outlet for yourself. what was amusing for me at first has now just become like witnessing a car wreck. you know it is awful and sad, but you just can’t keep from looking. i really don’t have to look, and this really is not fun anymore. it has become extremely sad and poignant, and i truly believe that you are a mentally disturbed individual. to continue with you would be the same as kicking the crutches out from under a crippled person. it is not fair, and in fact, it has a measure of cruelty about it. so i will not continue.

    i wish you the best, and i hope that you can find some peace in your life and in your mind. i ureg you to seek professional help at once. good luck, and god bless you.

You took a harmless post and escalated it. Just because you know nothing about dancing you attack me and the most hypocritical thing is that you keep trying to say that you don’t attack me. I know I’m attacking your lack of obvious intelligence and thin skin but you need to get out of kitchen if you can’s stand the heat. SO there!

    PS-Emmitt WAS the best! :-)

    I just want to say one thing.Why are people so ready to judge others personal lives?This was a dance competition.Give Mario a break.Who isn’t a sinner?We all are.So who cares what he did in his personal life.A lot of us out here will always feel that he was the best dancer and deserved to win.

    Hi everybody!! After reading some of these posts, i do think Mario won the comp, but, i have to agree with Poorman. Bonnie wants to think she is not attack Poorman, but she really is. At least Poorman is telling what he really thinks. Bonnie wants everyone to think she is the victim here, when she is really isone of those people that try to make people think she is sweet and good but really isnt. i have people here at work like that >> and i think they need to grow up

    Bonnie, looking back at one of your post i see that Poorman said he went to San Francisco to see relatives then you call him socially depraved homosexual? Do you think everyone in San Francisco is gay? You got something against homosexuals? You said he has aids too. If thats not attacking then i dont know what is. you are one mean bitch

    Thanks Sabrina for knowing that Mario was indeed the better dancer…thanks Aimee for the support….thanks Bummie for proving that you’re nothing but a loser…how many times are you going to say “This is my last post, I mean it” You sound like a kid…

    WHAT is the matter with all you people??? This is supposed to be a forum about DANCING. Why are you all being so hateful and stupid? Poorman, you are an idiot who attacked people because they did not agree with you, not just Bonnie but others as well. Bonnie, you got sucked into his stupidity and allowed him to bait you into responding. Aimee, I don’t know where you came from, but go back and read the posts. Poorman was the one who went on the attack first. (And I am not sure you are not Poorman in disguise. You sound a LOT like him in your posts). As for the rest of you, stop supporting this insanity between these two. Bonnie, you are smarter than this. Stop letting him get to you. Poorman, just go away. Let the rest of us post in peace about the dancing. Thank you.

    Now, since I got that over with, anyone want to talk DANCING? In my opinion, Mario was probably the best technical dancer, but he did not put the style into it that Emmitt did, and he did not show the enjoyment of his own performance the way Emmitt did. I think that was what won it for Emmitt. I think Mario unquestionably was technically superior, but the spirit and the premise of the show was to take non-professional dancing celebrities and teach them to dance. Mario clearly had previous training. For that reason, Emmitt was the better, because he had to learn from scratch. Anyone care to agree or disagree?

    Dancing machine, I was trying to logically talk about dancing and Bummie would not hear of it. Your last post was probably the best post about the show I’ve seen here. If you notice, I usually try to put some comment about dancing in my posts, whether it is about dancing or Bummie’s lack of knowledge of it. It is just crazy that “normal” people can even entertain the thought that Emmitt (and I’ve said this repeatedly that I do like Emmitt) was a better dancer. They are not basing that on the dancing. They are basing that on the underdog and big smile factor. The same way no one liked the 49ers back in the late 1990′s because they were the team of the decade…everyone wanted them to lose, just like Mario. It seems like it’s human nature to want the better teams or individuals to lose. Oh, and if you don’t like my posts, you can go away….

    Poorman –

    “Oh Bummie, at least my relatives aren’t crack dealers and prostitutes like yours are..actually the felines on your side of the family are probably so disgusting they have to pay the johns for sex…you are probably one of the Lee sisters; Uglee, Homelee, and Gastlee…you seem to know a lot about Aids, must be the direct knowledge you have from contracting it from a monkey!”

    THAT is a direct cut and paste from one of your posts to “Bummie”. I don’t see anything about dancing there. Let’s face it, you simply wanted a fight. As for the comments about Emmitt that you made, you referenced giving him “welfare” in one, and then made derogatory reference to “Master P” in another. In my opinion you are a racist. So let’s quit the games about your sincere desire to discuss dancing. You even had to take a shot at me in your last posting, and I have done nothing to you. Please do not direct any further comments to me. I want to talk about the show, and ONLY the show. If you just want to argue with someone, go stand in front of a mirror. I don’t have time for this nonsense!

    Dear Prancing Machine, ever hear of the First Amendment? I can say anything I please…one post out of many? How many did you not quote from Bummie that absolutely had nothing to do with dancing? So it’s okay for all of the judges and Ashley to be critical of Master P but I can’t? Sounds like you are just ignorant. Master P got scores of 2,3 4 a few times and people kept voting him back. On what planet do these people come from that vote? Head Judge Len told him for weeks he should be off the show and if you saw season 2 you saw that Master P took the shoes that Ashley gave him and said “Hell no” and threw them on the floor. Is that the kind of contestant you’re defending? By the way, you must be a bigot to call someone you don’t know a racist. I judge people on the way they act, not the color of their skin. Master P acted totally stupid on the show. The wefare remark if you can actually read was in regards to Democratic practices of a socialist state. Some groups ( I won’t name names lest I hurt someone’s feelings) will give money and benefits to other groups to “help” them when actually in the long run you take away their incentives to achieve and grow. I felt that many voters gave Emmitt “welfare points” not because he was black, but because he was the underdog. Welfare has nothing to do with race. There are actually more whites on wefare that other minorities. I’m sorry you feel that way about minorities. I don’t. How many times do I have to tell everyone that I like Emmitt! I’m a big football fan and like alot of us, grew up with America’s Team with outstanding players like Staubach, Coach Landry, Tony Dorsett, Troy Aikman, and Emmitt Smith. But unfortunately, he wasn’t the better dancer. Actually, Joey was probably a better dancer than Emmitt. I’ve been to my share of Ballroom dancing Competitions and believe me, the only one on S-3 that could compete was probably Mario. You want to talk about dancing? Please explain to me how in the finale that Emmitt got away without doing a basic compulsory movement in his Samba, the Samba Roll. He got a 30 in the scoring. Mario breaks a hold in the Tango and gets a 6 from Len. Many contestants (including Mario and Joey) were penalized throughout the show for not doing some of the basics, yet Emmitt gets away with it. So again, too bad you are a bigot and choose to pick and choose what to cut and paste instead of showing what Bummie has done here also…here are three post in a row from Bummie so please tell me what these have to do with dancing…

    “the more you type the more pathetic you sound. at this point i am answering you only to provide entertainment for all the people rolling on the floor laughing at you. you have aptly named yourself: POOR man. in so many ways….

    oh, you are TOTALLY alone, and that is exactly where you belong. you are so in a world of your own. but that’s okay, they know you there….

    Posted by: bonnie | November 19, 2006 at 06:45 PM

    i am done with this now. i generally don’t enter a battle of wits if the opponent is unarmed, though i made the exception this time because you were so outrageous. but it isn’t even fun anymore, because it is just too easy to beat you. just like emmitt beat mario! so, bye!”

    Actually, you probably are Bummie and not someone called “dancing machine” Nice try.

    Now a nickname for ME as well as “Bummie”! How clever of you! You continue to prove your ignorance each time you post. Has it not occurred to you that several people here have condemned your behavior? Or are you so full of yourself that you are certain that everyone else is wrong and you are right?

    No, I am not “Bummie”. She had the good sense to quit this silliness. I posted only to voice my opinion, not get a verbal, nut-case argument from you. But i got one anyway, simply because i asserted MY first amendment rights. I guess those were written only for you and those who agree with you.

    You are a real piece of work. I bet those around you cringe every time you walk in the door.

    I will post my opinions elsewhere, where people are normal. It looks like at this point, since no one else is posting here now except for you and me, that everyone else got tired of you as well. Now you have the whole site to yourself. Knock yourself out. You can post and then post again agreeing with yourself. Then congratulate yourself on your previous brilliant posts. It should entertain you for months. Enjoy!

    Good, see ya! The group I should have named is the one you’re in..the stupid group! No conscience there! Am I the only one here that sees things locigally? AAANNNNDDD, the reason that no one posts here anymore is because DWTS was over about a month ago. We humans have short attention spans at times. Do you still talk about American Idol?

    Machine, also, while I’m thinking about it, I asked a real question about Emmitt’s Samba. That was a dancing question. It looks like you’re the one that chooses to ignore the dancing theme of this thread. I don’t think everyone is wrong on this site….just the ones that think Emmitt was the better dancer. I applaud the many smart people on the site that chose Mario. If you again choose to read through the posts here, you will see that I am definitely not alone in that matter.

    Oh, and thanks for the laughs. If nothing else, it has been entertaining watching what you will do next! But that, like other things, has lost its charm. Like you said, my attention span has dwindled on this. May all your Christmas wishes come true, although I suppose they involve continuing to make others miserable. Goodbye!

    Prancing Machine, you must have lost a few screws and need a lube there in the empty brain cavity you have..still can’t answer DWTS questions…you’re as bad as Bummie. You have no attention span as the undereducated tend to, oh well. Have a good Christmas also unless you want to debate the existence of Jesus Christ or Santa Claus…

    OH Prancing Machine, just feel sorry for yourself…if I did have voices in my head, they would be saying “Prancing Machine is an Idiot”. Oh, and nice third grade typing by the way! Maybe Santa will bring you a See and Spell game. I can’t wait to see who you and Bummie vote for the DWTS 4 next month. Probably the legless dancer star or the sightless one. Wait, I know, you’ll be voting for Rosie O’Donnell.

    Emmmit and Cheryl were better than Mario and Karina. Because Emmitt has moves on the field and on the dance floor.Mario can only act. I liked when Mario was on saved by the bell.

    Emmitt is the best and the best running back! im doing a report on Emmitt in school! Im sorry Mario (Slater) but Emmitt got it hahahahaha! I love you Emmitt!
