Jennifer, 50, grabbed the mirrorball trophy on Tuesday, beating out fellow finalists Kyle Massey and Bristol Palin. Despite reports of the Tea Party getting behind Bristol, the 20-year-old was the first eliminated, with Disney star Kyle, 19, coming in second place.
Kyle was arguably the biggest surprise of the season. While most expected him to be out the first week, he was able to win the heart of many viewers and with his vastly improved dancing, was able to become the runner up.
Upon hearing she won the competition, Jennifer burst into tears. “I didn’t think I was going to compete tonight—and I’m really glad I did!” said Jennifer, having endured multiple injuries this season and almost quiting on more than one occasion.
“I had been asked for nine years and I said no out of fear,” she told TVGuide after the show. “I would’ve been robbed of this amazing experience had I not said yes and had the courage.”
