Kristi Yamaguchi Wins Dancing with the Stars

by at . Comments

Kristi Yamaguchi was considered the Dancing with the Stars favorite before she took a step on step. A Gold Medal-winning ice skater, everyone figured, would have superior footwork to any actor or singer in the competition.

And it was apparent from the start that this was the case - but Kristi and partner Mark Ballas did still work hard on their way to the trophy. Which they received last night.

In an expected result, following perfect scores across the board on her final dances Monday evening, Kristi was named Dancing with the Stars champion over runner-up Jason Taylor. Here's a look at the announcement:
