Yep, THREE interview posts today!! Just what you needed to start your Thanksgiving holiday, right? First up, we have the couples on Jimmy Kimmy LIVE. Never did J.R. think he’d be dancing after fighting in Iraq. J.R. thanks America for believing in him. Jimmy is a hoot as always. They didn’t burn any shoes this time.
E Online also interviewed the couples. J.R. and Karina thank their fans and give credit to their fellow competitors. Be sure to read the link for Rob and Ricki’s take on the night as well.
Aside from mirror-ball jokes, J.R. took a moment to thank all of his fans, saying, “We just want to thank everyone who voted for us for 10 weeks and believed in us week in and week out!” This is the first DWTS win for Karina, who says, “I had no idea what it would feel like and it feels amazing.”
Though she says all of the finalists are “a team of friends who compete and enjoy the process,” Karina admits it was nice to win the competition. “To come out on top at the end and to hold [the trophy], it’s so beautiful.”
J.R. partly credits his fellow competitors Rob and Ricki for his big win, saying, “Both of them did so well and were so great. It was great that they progressed because they actually pushed us to be better.”
CNN interviews the finalists and some of the cast who thought J.R. would win from the beginning and he was so deserving too.
Wow! Such a cool ending to Dancing With The Stars!!
