Last week on Dancing With the Stars, fans watched as the finalists for the mirror ball trophy were revealed, and for the first time ever, we were surprised that it would be an all girl finale. So now, we have to ask: which one of these ladies deserves to win it all this week?
For the first time ever, Dancing With The Stars will see its first all female finale, as last week the finalists were revealed to be Kelly Monaco, Shawn Johnson, and Melissa Rycroft. For Shawn Johnson and Kelly Monaco, winning would be wonderful, and both of these ladies have something that Melissa Rycroft doesn’t – a past win on the show.
Melissa Rycroft, who is the only finalist who has not previously won, is excited (yet shocked) that the finale consists of three women. Rycroft spoke to People Magazine recently and explained that it was an “unbelievable” feeling, adding: “The three of us are standing up on that stage going: ‘We beat all the boys!’ How really does that happen?”
Melissa also has another reason to push for the win – her partner, Tony Dovolani, who has also never won a mirror ball trophy. “For me, winning the trophy would be everything,” Tony told People. The pair overcame the odds, as at one point this season, Melissa was not even sure she would be able to finish out the season after a head/neck injury during rehearsals.
Meanwhile, Kelly Monaco is no stranger to competing with all girls, as the General Hospital star is one of five women in her family – enough said! Monaco couldn’t be more excited as she gushed about the finale: “I think it’s awesome. I’m honored to be up there with two amazing women.”
So we have to ask: who are you rooting for to win the mirror ball trophy this week on Dancing With The Stars? Comment below and share your thoughts us!
