And the Winner of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Is...

dwts 29 winners

Congratulations are in order for Kaitlyn Bristowe and Artem Chigvintsev, who've been crowned the winners on season 29 of Dancing With the Stars!

The Bachelor alum and her partner were presented with their disco ball trophy on Monday's finale, marking Chigvintsev's first win in his nine-season run as a pro on the show. Also, Bristowe's victory follows fellow Bachelorette star Hannah Brown's win in 2019, which means that two Bachelorettes have won the series in a row.

During the episode, Chigvintsev and Bristowe performed some of their older routines, including a fiery tango to Britney Spears's "Toxic" and a Moulin Rouge-themed performance, which featured Bristowe descending from the air on a swing. Not surprisingly, the performances were met with perfect scores from the judges.

Bristowe and Chigvintsev's win is definitely well-deserved, considering their effort and the fact that Bristowe kept going after sustaining some injuries.

In a recent interview with USA Today, while discussing her DWTS win, Bristowe said, "I just completely forgot I was mic'ed up. You just never know what name they're going to call. So when [host Tyra Banks] said our names, I completely blacked out. I think I broke Artem's eardrums because I screamed so loud. And I asked my boyfriend, did that come across on TV? And he was like, 'I don't know. I was screaming too loud to hear anything.'"

Nev Schulman and Jenna Johnson came in second place in the finals, Nelly and Shantel Jackson came in third and Justina Machado and Sasha Farber came in fourth place.

Congrats again to Kaitlyn and Artem!
