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.

A Little Outlook On Nastia Liukin’s New Book “Finding My Shine” – Guest Review By Catherine L

In case you don’t know Derek’s Dancing With The Stars Season 20 partner, Nastia Liukin, has written a new memoir called “Finding My Shine”. Nastia writes not only about her Olympic career and the trials that came with it, but, also her biggest challenges without gymnastics in her life anymore. She also writes about Derek and Dancing With The Stars in her new book. If you thought Derek and Nastia weren’t friends or that they had arguments on the show, think again. Cath bought the book and tells us about it below….

“Finding my Shine” by Nastia Liukin”
A little outlook by Catherine L @allisgood4ever

Being a Gymnastics coach for a number of years, I have followed Nastia’s career, when I found out she would be on DWTS was exciting in it’s self, finding out she would be paired with Derek, I just died!!

Reading that Nastia had a book released, I was intrigued to see if she would write about her experience on DWTS. I was not disappointed. Not only did Nastia write about it, she wrote about it in great details.

So I thought I would give you an insight on what she wrote without giving a lot away (which is going to be hard!!).

What I would say to anyone that had any preconceived ideas about Nastia, she addresses that subject. It was often said that her love/connection for Derek was non existence. I hope after reading her book your opinion would have changed.

Nastia writes: “Some of the producers fed us questions in such a way that I knew they were trying to get Derek or me to answer a certain way”. Nastia goes ahead and speaks about the imfamous package “we never had an argument, & that is what they tried to make out of it.”

After reading her book, my opinion on Nastia and Derek’s friendship was confirmed.

Thanks, Cath! You Rock!!!! If interested, you buy Nastia’s new book “Finding My Shine” at Amazon or your nearest bookstore.
