I liked all three finalists but would have suffered a mild pang of disappointment had Hines and Kym not won. I am always surprised and delighted when athletes (the skaters excluded) out-perform the professional performers. This season, Hines' charm and humility really got to me, right from Week 1.

I figured Kirsty / Max would be in the top 2, based on Kirsty's affiliation with her church, and their (ahem) pattern of passionately supporting their own. Read between the lines as you like. But she and Max *tanked* the finale! What an awful dance, it looked ragged, lacked dancing content, flair or purpose of style. Afterwards, I kept wondering "what was Max thinking?" but then I remembered that he has tanked many finales. Think of Marie Osmond and that stupid doll routine. Or Mel B and that horrible "street" dance. The only finale I liked was his dance with Laila Ali. His partners, the ones with at least a chance of doing well, always receive praise for technical ability. So I think he must be an excellent technical coach. But he seems to hit this wall of creativity when it comes to the finale, and what the audience is looking for.

Note: In fairness to Maks, Marie's infamous doll dance of death was with Johnathan.

Derek, along w/ Kym, is one of three three-time winners. However, Derek won all of his mirror ball trophies on the American version of the show while Kym won two of hers on the American version and one on the Australian version.
