Remember when Jason and Edyta met? And Jason was embarrassed to be seen dancing? Now they are back to do their quickstep, which I loved. This was definitely my favorite of their routines. Jason finishes with his kiss to Carrie Ann, followed by his handstand over Edyta. Tom has to fill while the audience cheers and cheers. Bruno tells Jason and Edyta that they have heavenly bodies and move like angels. He thinks this was their best performance. Carrie Ann thinks Jason is a force of nature, and has an elegant spirit. Huh? She's turning into Paula. Len says that Jason was unexpected, and while Kristi may be the judges' champion, Jason is the people's champion. Scores: Carrie Ann 10, Len 10, and Bruno 10. Surprise! Jason is really happy, so I feel kind of bad because I think that it's a foregone conclusion that both couples will get a perfect score in the finale. And there's Jason, all proud. God bless him.
Tom takes a moment to talk to some former contestants. He asks Priscilla how she did the show when she's so shy. Priscilla laughs and says that she doesn't know, but loved the challenge. He asks Mario about his exposure to a new audience. Mario says that it was pure fun and he was really impressed by the other contestants who had never danced before. Tom asks Shannon why she cries so much. Shannon says she's just a crier. Around her, everyone pretends to cry and mocks her, including Derek.
Finally, someone will be crowned champion after one last break. And it's time! The scary music starts while Samantha and Tom review the strengths and weaknesses of each couple. And finally, Tom announces that the winners of season six are... Kristi and Mark. Well, that's right. She deserved it. And Jason got a lot of love from the studio audience, so I doubt he's too broken up. Kristi looks happy, but is showing very little emotion, which is probably why I never could really get behind her this season, even though she was clearly the best dancer. Jason says he never even thought he would do the show, and he admits that Kristi totally deserves it. It is nice to see the best dancer actually win for the first time in a while. Julianne and Derek run out and hug their "brother" Mark while Jason and Cristian hoist Kristi up onto their shoulders. Tom promises that they'll be back in September, and God willing, so will I. See you then!
