Donald Driver took the mirror ball trophy home in Season 14 of “DWTS” and third place pro Cheryl Burke says he’s fantastic. Zap2it chatted with Burke right after the winners were announced, where she told us how she felt about his win.
“Football players have such a huge fan base,” she says. “Donald, I
even said it in the package, he hasn’t peaked yet, and he really just
went out there and did everything he could and has such a great attitude
about the whole thing.”
We asked her where partner William Levy was. It turns out his adorable little boy was crying. “That’s why he’s not here with me,” she says. “He is consoling him, he was so hurt and just wanted daddy to win.” The shot they showed of him on the screen was heartbreaking and when he appeared later in the ballroom, he was still in tears.
Burke says that this was a tough finale. “You know, we even said it before, during the show when you’re watching
everybody, everyone is so good! Some finals on the show you’re like, you
know what, so-and-so doesn’t deserve to be here, but everyone deserved
to be here. The quality of dancing has gone up so high.”
Did Donald deserve to win? Let us know what you think.
