Tom jokes that this is the part where he asks the eliminated contestants who will win, and they all plug their latest project. But first, he compliments their dancing tonight. I totally agree. Kim admits that she wasn't as nervous tonight, and then plugs her stupid reality show. Susan thinks having more time to rehearse helped her routine. Tom asks to borrow Maurice's orange silk leisure suit, and Maurice pretends he's going to take it off. Here's why Tom is awesome: he's like "Okay, let's do it!" Whereas Samantha would have gotten all nervous and awkward and made it weird. Maurice says that he doesn't want to cause a riot amongst the ladies, and Tom lets it go.
And it's FINALLY TIME to find out who the champion is. Both couples are standing on the dance floor with the silly mirror ball trophy in between them. I think if Warren wins, I'm going to go on a rampage like that YouTube video with the tween girls who flipped out when David Archuleta lost Idol. And the winners are... Brooke and Derek. Aw. Derek is so happy. I think he might be happier than Brooke. He might be crying. Derek says that he can't believe it. Warren says that he wouldn't do anything differently. Tom finally hands the trophy to Brooke and Derek and they hoist it over their heads. Julianne, Mark, and Corky run out and hoist Derek up on their shoulders. Actually, Derek is on Mark's shoulders and Brooke is on Corky's shoulders. Brooke doesn't even get to hug her husband because she's up in the air. I guess she can hug him later.
And that's it! See you in a few months for season eight.
Watch a video recap of the finale week. Plus: Another season down. See who we'd love to see on the show next season. Happy with the winner? Think Lance and Warren were robbed? Talk about it in our forums.
