7. You’re a long way from Australia Zoo! Bindi Irwin wins Dancing With The Stars US
The daughter of late conservationist Steve Irwin danced her way to victory on the 21st season of the long running show following a series of accomplished performances with professional partner Derek Hough.
Bindi had already been pegged as the favourite among fans and judges, and the hype proved to be entirely justified when she was crowned champion after an emotional freestyle which paid tribute to her late father.
The 17-year old praised Steve, known globally for his wildlife show ‘The Crocodile Hunter’. He was killed at the age of 44 after being fatally struck by a stingray barb in 2006.
Bindi seemed genuinely overwhelmed as she clutched the coveted Mirrorball Trophy, after a gruelling three months on the show.
‘Thank you so much for everything. I can’t believe I’m here. Thank you for changing my life,’ Bindi shouted out.
The pair were pitted against Alek Skarlatos and Lindsay Arnold, Nick Carter and Sharna Burgess, who on Monday’s show tied with the fave performers for a perfect 60 and Team Crikey went into the final with the final with the highest total points of the season.
