Helio Castroneves Wins 'Dancing With the Stars'

Helio Castroneves Wins 'Dancing With the Stars'

The 2007 Dancing with the Stars winner is Helio Castroneves and his partner Julianne Hough. This marks the second year that Hough has brought her partner to the top. Her winning partner from 2006 was Olympic Speedskater Apolo Ohno. Congrats!

This must be such a huge disappointment for The Spice Girls. Can’t win ‘em all, I guess!

Mel B. and Maksim Chmerkovskiy came in second. Marie Osmond and her partner Jonathan Roberts were eliminated within the first 15 minutes of the show.

Helio, 32, is one of the top North American race car drivers. He won the Indianapolis 500 in 2001 and 2002 and took second place in 2003.

    Cool! first

    I knew it, the best never wins when people votes for their favorite!!!

  • Stephen

    Suckfest! Mel danced her ass off this season, only to lose it to “most improved”. Lame.

  • stillthereforme

    JJ…people on the west coast have not seen it yet.

  • gut???

    MEL B. was the BEST and should have won. I’m not watching anymore DWTS. The good ones never win even if you vote. I think she was cheated because I tried voting online last night and the site was done for a good half an hour. whatever! MEL B. is still the BEST!!!

  • Orange Clockwork

    OH SNAP SPOILERS!

  • who cares

    what the hell is wrong with you/?
    why would you post the winner right there on your website when the show hasnt even aired yet.
    you completly ruined the show.

  • gut???

    sorry for the people in the west coast… but prepare yourself.

  • suzy

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Mel B ftw.

  • pipi

    Julianne has a huge fan base and she’s always great, Helio was never really that impressive.

  • breezy

    at least it wasn’t maks all his bitching in the last 24 hrs made me think he was on his period ….. congrats to helio and julianne

  • ashley

    BOO!!! he doesn’t really do anything. it’s mostly Julianne doing all the work while he stands and twirls her around. Mel should have won.

  • courtney

    take away julianne and helio sucks. take away maks and mel can still dance. dwts favors the men, obviously… and he got the same luck emmitt did… the previous champion. but just because the PROFESSIONAL DANCER comes up with great dances doesn’t mean her crappy partner should win. mel deserved that trophy.

  • alexandria

    THIS IS PERPOSTEROUS!!!!!Mel should have won hands down, she is the most versatile and the best performer. the only reason he won is becuase the focus was on the girl and she was good and appealed the the masses: white girl, blonde hair(fake).

    Mel had more talent than him.

  • http://HelioCastronevesWinsDancingWiththeStars rubyred

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!MY FAVORITE!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Nessa

    This was BULL >=(
    So disappointed.

  • kaye

  • Crystal

    Plain and simple MEL SHOULD HAVE WON!!!!!!!!!

  • Reatty

    Maks lost it for Mel with all the hissy fits he threw over the past week. He should have kept his mouth shut. The show wasn’t about him, it was about Mel B. She should have shut him up.

  • dee

    Well, at least Marie did not win!

  • http://abbadream.blogspot.com/ abbagirl

    YOU SUCK!! you just spoiled it for me! the least you can do is label this stuff “SPOILER” before you send this stuff out through your RSS feeds!

    UGH! jerks!

  • ashley

    Dee.

    yeah at least Marie didn’t win. I’d be pissed. haha.

    ——————–

    but still Mel should have won. :(

  • ashley

    I know Jared you spoiled it. I’m on the West Coast too.

  • crystalstars88

    Julianne and Apolo Anton Ohno won in May 2007. So Julianne won twice in the same year, not in 2006.

  • schmoop

    I love your site but…you just ruined the show for all of us on the west coast!

  • lisset

    i didnt even watch this season
    but there was so much publicity
    for it bc of mel from the spice girls.
    that i knew what was happening..
    i thought for sure mel would win..

    and that sucks for the ppl in
    the west coast.. eeeeeh.
    jj you ruined it for them!!
    lol.. its a little funny
    though.. sorry you guys!!!!

  • Natalie

    CONGRATS TO HELIO!! =) He was a great sport, always smiling and fun to watch. I liked him throughout the competition and I am happy for him. Mel B was great too, and I am glad she made it into the finals. Now she has the spice girls tour ahead of her and many good things.

  • Hero91

    Messed up, That perverted little hairy man had no right or fair votes. Something went on behind the scenes..

  • none

    Helio deserved win. I thought he was way more exciting to watch than Mel. Plus, unlike Mel, he had no previous dance experience.

  • Aliyah

    Boooooooo! Mel B was clearly the better dancer.

  • benji

    REMATCH!!!!

    NOT FAIR

    NOT FAIR

    NOT FAIR

    I THINK THEY ARE LIEING ABOUT THE VOTES, I COULDN’T GET THROUGH TO MEL B NUMBER, SO I BELIEVE SHE WON

    MEL B WAS THE BEST DANCER!

    HELIO CAN’T DANCE – I AM EXTREMELY PEE OFF – HE ISN’T EVEN AS FAMOUS A MEL B, COME ON – REMATCH!

  • lh

    Congrats to Julianne and Helio – they were terrific, always fun to watch. Julianne is an awesome dancer and really brings out the best in her partners. Sorry….I disliked MelB from the start so I’m very glad she didn’t win.

  • http://justjared I got the lips, I GOT THE TITS, I GOT THE BUTT AND I DIDN’T PAY FOR IT.tHE ONLY THING I NEED NOW IS THE HOTT BODY TO GO WITH ALL THIS!!

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. MEL AAAAAAAAAAL THE WAY.

  • Life is good

    Oh well. Life goes on. I am disappointed though but I guess the one with fans who could get through won…

  • lauren

    he should have won. he had such personality. they were both really great though.

  • Alicia

    DUDE!!! you ruined it!!

    uggghhh.

  • Rebekah

    Helio won. Get over it. There’s nothing you can do about it except for bitch and moan. It’s only a TV show, don’t get so upset because it didn’t turn out the way you wanted.

  • gizmatage

    Just Jared……… WTF w/ the SPOILERS!!!!! I come here all the time, and could you not at least WARN people with SPOILERS!!! You ruined my DWTS!!!

  • nikko

    I’m on the west coast and it’s 9:05pm. glad i found out who won, now I won’t watch it. Mel should of won. I can’t believe it….going to go watch some HBO

    Jared, thanks for letting me know in advance.

  • LOL

    JJ you should have put a spoiler alert with the winner after the jump! Oh well.

    first thank goodness marie didn’t win
    second, I love saying helio’s name
    third I’m happy he won because he had the least dance/entertainment experience, he came thru it with a good attitude.

    Congrats.

  • dwtsfan

    mel b deserved to win hands down…. she was the better of the 2 stars and was consistently good

  • dwtsfan

  • http://www.joliesnippleforum.com/ jolieandbecks

    Mel B. should have won Dancing With the Stars.

  • queenB

    the best did not win :(
    mel b is the real winner

  • spoil sport

    Oh snap you spoiled it for the west coast.

    Congrata to Helio who I hear is a classy guy.

    Mel B is almost a professional dancer. She was fantastic. Just like Sabrina. But too professional.

    Athletes fan base have more people than entertainment fan bases.

    Atheletes have done well in this show.

    So only one woman has won this huh?

  • SkankyHO

    WTF Mel B. Should have won.

  • anon

    Marie shouldn’t have been in the finals, Jennie should have. But oh well, it’s only entertainemnt and not so serious. The top four did really well.

    I’m happy for Helio. He was so good that he made the dancing seem effortless.

    Now Mel B can start her Spice Girl tour now in very good physical shape. She just had a baby 5 months ago and needed to drop the weight and get in shape for her tour. It’s all good.

  • Nice

    Helio has more fans (the auto racing crowd) than Mel B.
