Judges Are Shocked by Hannah Brown’s ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Win
Carrie Ann Inaba recently revealed that she was surprised when Hannah Brown won the mirrorball trophy on Dancing With The Stars this week.
“It’s not what I expected,” she told Us Weekly. “But this whole season has been filled with ups and downs and unexpected twists and turns. I think, always, the right person wins on Dancing With the Stars because it’s a collaborative vote between the judges’ scores and the audience. And what the audience says is very important and we honor it.”
She also added that “a lot of people were shocked tonight in the ballroom. I’ve never felt that from the ballroom when a winner was announced like tonight. I think Hannah has had a really challenging journey, but I think in the end she rose, and I’m really proud of her.”
Still, she wasn’t sure WHO would take home the trophy.
“To be honest, I don’t know if I had a specific idea [of] who I thought was going to win,” she told the outlet. “I just knew that all four — and even all five, actually, even James [Van Der Beek] — could have been up here and it would’ve been great to see anybody win. It was just, for some reason, I don’t know why that was shocking.”
Ouch! Well clearly she has her favorites, but at the end of the day, America chooses for the most part!
