Bindi Irwin Wins ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Season 21
From day one Bindi Irwin was a force to be reckoned with on “Dancing With The Stars,” and each week the 17-year-old continued to wow judges, fans, and her co-stars on the reality dance competition. Irwin brought a rare light and positivity to the ballroom that left people feeling happy and smiling just for having watched her dance.
Bindi beat out some stiff competition during her time on “Dancing With The Stars,” winning out over her finale competitors, Carlos PenaVega, who came in fourth place, Alek Skarlatos, coming in third, and Nick Carter who became the runner up to Miss Irwin. After the mirror ball trophy was given to Bindi and Derek, Nick told co-host Erin Andrews that “Bindi deserved” to win it all.
Derek Hough’s Now A 6-Time Winner
However, Nick was no slouch during his time on “DWTS.” The Backstreet Boy improved greatly throughout the weeks and rivaled Bindi’s finale perfect scores with all 10’s on his three dances as well. When it came down to it, it seemed that fans couldn’t bare the thought of Bindi Irwin leaving the show in any way but a champion.
With this latest win, Derek Hough has now won 6 mirror ball trophies with partners Brooke Burke, Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Grey, Kellie Pickler, Amber Riley, and now Bindi Irwin. It looks like there is no stopping Derek Hough and fans are hoping that he’ll continue to stick around “dancing With The Stars” for years to come.
