The figure skater beat over NFL great Jason Taylor and Chilean actor Cristian de la Fuente in the final round to become the first female winner of the competition since the show’s inception.
Kristi Yamaguchi, a figure skater, won season 6 of Dancing With the Stars. Gold medalist Apolo Anton Ohno, coupled with professional dancer Mark Ballas, is the first woman to win the Mirror Ball Trophy since Kelly Monaco in the show’s first season.
Christie Yamaguchi Won Season 6 of Dancing With the Stars
Second place went to professional football player Jason Taylor and his dance partner Edyta Sliwinska, and third place went to Chilean actor Cristián de la Fuente and his dance partner Cheryl Burke.
The two hours leading up to the announcement of Kristi’s victory featured a final dance for this season’s eliminated couples, a performance by Usher of “Love in this Club” from his new album Here I Stand, and a jazzy version of his hit “Yeah” with the Pros dancing alongside him, and the crowning of Brittany and Brandon as champions of the kids’ competition with the help of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.
At long last, Kristi and Mark performed their jive again, and just like before, they received a flawless score of 30.
Bruno commented that Kristi “never missed a beat,” and Carrie Ann commended Kristi for “representing the women so well,” so it’s no surprise that Judge Len labelled her “the most consistent dancer this season.” After that, Jason and Edyta repeated their quickstep from before, which had been scored a 29.
Bruno and his companion were named “angels” by Carrie Ann, who remarked on Jason’s grace and referred to him as a “force of nature” by Len, who declared Jason to be “the people’s champion.” When Jason performed, the judges gave him a flawless score of 30.
