Dancing with the Stars results - The finale winner is Kristi Yamaguchi

Dancing with the Stars results - The finale winner is Kristi Yamaguchi Tonight was the "Dancing with the Stars" season finale, one of the remaining three celebrities was going to be the winner. So who won Dancing with the Stars? The winner is...Kristi Yamaguchi!

 The underdog Cristian de la Fuente was the first finalist to be eliminated during the Dancing with the Stars finale tonight. He was listed with odds 20/1 at the online bookmaker BodogLife and the odds makers were right on the money this time - Cristian de la Fuente was eliminated. "I would never have the feeling of going into the final after an injury if it wasn't for Cheryl [Burke]. She's been the best partner I could have. She's been a real friend, not only a dance partner but a support when I really needed her," Cristian de la Fuente said after he was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars. He ruptured a tendon in his biceps while performing on April 28th and delayed surgery in order to continue to compete on the show. "I love you and I'll miss you and your family so much," his pro partner Cheryl Burke said through tears.

 After de la Fuente was voted off Dancing with the Stars, we were down to just two competitors - the favorite contestant Olympic skater Kristi Yamaguchi, who was at 1/4 to win the finale and football star Jason Taylor, who was listed second with odds 12/5 - the odds makers got this two-horse race days before the results of the Dancing with the Stars finale. Kristi got a perfect 60 score from the judges last night, while Taylor scored just 51 points, but the viewers' votes count as much as the judges and a combination of the two would result in the Dancing with the Stars winner. Jason Taylor's partner, Edyta Sliwinska, tore his shirt last night, taking advantage of the fact that 3/4 of the show's viewers are women. "The majority of the audience are females and they probably vote a lot more than guys. I guess those beautiful bodies and gorgeous guys make them easy to vote for," she admitted. And we were minutes away from finding out if her tactic worked and who won the Dancing with the Stars finale. The results came in - Kristi Yamaguchi is the winner of "Dancing with the Stars".
