For me the winner has to have something endearing. I'm sorry but even the seasons where someone won that I wasn't their fan, I appreciated the entertainment value they brought/ This season not so much. I think back to season 8 when Gilles fans were disappointed but recognized that what a thrill it was for his opponent a 17 year old to win. Now, this win just slapped those other 17 year olds pretty darn hard. Not that I' was a fan of Milo or Evanna necessarily, but either of them winning would put a finer point on what it means to work at the fundamentals of dance to win, rather than a cheezy dance show that is constantly reminding us that its solely in the business of marketing your mug all over television so you never have to dance again. It sort of defeats the purpose of dance in the first place, and I for one hate that the draw of dance actually gets so disrespected. When I think of people like Rashad Jennings winning the whole thing, he embraced dance and respected what it takes to win, it has just fell so far so fast.
Sharna did her job and brought a non-dancer to a win. I only heard of this guy on this show and frankly I don't care if I ever see him again, anywhere. He did nothing to inspire anything but contempt for Sharna's teaching with that stupid flossing. People may think it's funny but to me it was just passive aggressive bullshit to disrespect teacher and get a few laughs. Sharna had to deal with Andy Dick, and he was out of control drunk when he came back the following season. So she's dealt with a lot. What a shame she didn't get a win with that adorable funny Hinchcliffe who actually tried to please his audience and had some respect for her teaching.
