'DWTS' final is already here - so which finalists are worthy of the Mirrorball Trophy next Monday
With the Season 27 finale around the corner, four couples are about to give their best to take the big prize home, and not mattering who wins we know we’re in for a great night.
Now that the semi-finals are behind, the moment of truth has come, and on November 19 we are going to know who will be crowned the winner of the current season of “Dancing With The Stars.”
Two couples were sent home in a double elimination on November 12’s broadcast, with the shocking departure of the couple which all signs indicated was the most likely to win the competition.
“Grocery Store Joe” Amabile from “The Bachelorette” and pro Jenna Johnson were also dismissed after scoring 24 out of 30 with their Quickstep performance.
“Harry Potter”’s Evanna Lynch and pro Keo Motsepe became the last couple to be called safe, even though they also scored 30 out of 30 with the judges.
“Zombies”’ Milo Manheim/ pro Witney Carson, radio personality Bobby Bones/ pro Sharna Burgess, and Internet celebrity Alexis Ren/ pro Alan Bersten are the other three couples that made it to the final.
LOVE IS IN THE AIR
Apart from their dance routines, which have taken the pair far in the competition in part with the help of her huge social media following, Ren and Bersten have been the talk of the town for their personal relationship.
The chemistry between the two has been evident since the beginning, and following the news of Ren breaking with her boyfriend of some time in October, their fans starting to spread rumors about a romance developing.
The rumored romance permeated the show, and it was addressed in more than one occasion, and hints and ambiguities from the alleged lovebirds and other cast members fueled the expectations of the viewers.
But in the “Country Night” Ren and Bersten admitted the feelings they have for one another in the video package shown before their performance, to the satisfaction of the several people who were shipping a romance between them.
“I’ve never had an experience like this. It’s so easy to just hang out with you and have fun and not worry about everything else. I do have feelings for you. And I really feel like I am falling for you,” Bersten told Ren.
The week before, she had also shared her feelings, saying: “I didn’t see this one coming. It happened really quickly, though, so I think I’m still trying to process it.”
Not only the fans are feeling the love, but also judge Carrie Ann Inaba, who recently shared her impressions about how close Ren and Bersten has gotten and how intense their feelings appear to be.
"Seems like they're in love!" the 50-year-old told US Weekly on November 8 when interviewed at the Women’s Guild Cedars-Sinai Diamond Jubilee Luncheon.
