Finally, it's time to announce the winner. Maybe. Oh, first there's a clip package on each team. Mel loves that Maks is so cocky, and they love to laugh and joke with each other. Maks thinks this was the most amazing season so far, due to Mel. He speaks of her in truly glowing terms. Eddie Murphy, eat your heart out. Mel says that Maks has increased her self-esteem, and she considers him a part of her family.
What about Helio and Julianne? Julianne knew that Helio would be fun, but he impressed her with his dancing ability. Helio didn't think this would be so much fun. Julianne appreciates Helio's positive outlook on life. Helio says he's been through pain and work, but he'd do it all again. Julianne thinks Helio deserves to win!
So who will win? Finally, it's time for the announcements. The judges' scores from both nights have been combined with the viewer votes. One more time to see Mel look like she's about to cry. One more time watching Helio keep a poker face. The crowd in the room seems to favor Helio and Julianne. Tom announces that the winners are...Helio and Julianne. Helio's whole family hugs him. You know who's not there? Helio's fiancée, whom I think he broke up with halfway through the season. Scandal! Tom tells Julianne that she tied Cheryl's record with two wins in a row. Someone brings Helio some milk, like they drink when they win the Indy 500. Samantha wants a word with Mel and Maks. Mel says she's enjoyed being with Maks the most. Maks thinks Mel is an amazing person, because Samantha doesn't know how to ask a question to save her life. She basically tells them, "You really dig each other. Comment?"
Tom hands Helio his trophy, and the other former contestants come out onto the floor to congratulate them. It seems like everyone goes to Mel first, but I guess she probably needs more comforting. Someone lifts Mel up in the air, but I can't tell who it is. Tom promises that they'll be back next year. March, I hear. See you then!
