The judges called Brooke Burke the “sensation of season seven.” On Wednesday night Brooke Burke became the latest “Dancing With the Stars” champion.
Burke, 37, had only one word after clinching the coveted mirrorball trophy: “Unbelievable.”
Burke won the DWTS title over NFL legend Warren Sapp, the first runner-up, and former boy band star Lance Bass, who finished third.
“It’s been an incredible journey,” Burke said moments after her big win. “It’s such an accomplishment, just to try things that you’ve never done before. For me, it’s been an incredible experience.”
Burke and her pro-partner, Derek Hough, were the season-long front-runners, praised by the judges for their impeccable technique and cheered by the fans for dazzling showmanship. Hough, whose sister, Julianne, is a two-time “Dancing with the Stars” champ, seemed to be in shock.
“I actually can’t believe it,” he said. “It’s been tough. It’s been wonderful. It’s been everything I could ever hope for. I can’t believe we actually did it.”
During Wednesday’s finale, Burke earned one final set of perfect 10s from the judges after a heart-tugging waltz to John Mayer’s sentimental song “Daughters.” Burke’s fiance, actor David Charvet, cried in the audience. Even tough judge Carrie Ann Inaba got choked up.
