In a somewhat surprising ending to the final Dancing With the Stars results show of the season, reality star Melissa Rycroft was named the winner Tuesday night.
Rycroft, who finished third in 2009's Season 8, edged out Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, who many thought would become a two-time DWTS champion.
“My mind went blank for a minute,” Melissa Rycroft told reporters after the show as to what she was thinking when host Tom Bergeron announced her as the winner.
“When we were standing there with Shawn and Derek (Hough) I assumed it’d be them. After I realized it was our names, I said, ‘Oh, my God! How did this just happen?’”
