Recently retired Major League Baseball player and World Series Champion David Ross and his partner Lindsay Arnold as well as singer Normani Kordei and her partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy are all that stands between Jennings as his partner Emma Slater and the Mirror Ball Trophy. The shock of the night was frontrunner Normani finishing in third place, leaving Ross and Jennings to battle it out in the final two.

"Dancing With the Stars" judge and former pro Julianne Hough weighs in on her favorite TV programs, and her most hoped-for costar. Kordei was the judges' darling all season. She says it's proving to be a shocker of a season, what with Fifth Harmony star Normani Kordei's unexpected elimination.

Jennings, who was released by the Giants in February, is the fourth National Football League player to win "DWTS".

"I don't know if you saw it on my face or not, but I literally could not believe it at all", he said. "I was made fun of a lot because I was a 0.6 GPA, chubby kid with glasses and all that good stuff".

"It could be us". I'm so thankful for the show.

"I was definitely bullied", Jennings said. "I think that any one of us would have been deserving so kudos to him!"

The Washington Post noted that a friend of Botha's died in April after disappearing while leading a hunt using tracking dogs. This involves large packs of dogs which are used to drive deer and boar towards hunters who then shoot the animals.

Jennings stressed that fact that, "There are no losers here at all".

Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater have been on top all season of DWTS. Ross and his professional partner, Lindsay Arnold, finished in second place in the ABC network competition Tuesday.

"I've got no words", Bergeron said after announcing the final two teams.

Just days before the finale, Jennings opened up to People about his life as a youngster and revealed that he was bullied in school. In fact, having played for the Jaguars and Raiders before going to NY, this past season's wild card loss to the Green Bay Packers was his first playoff game since entering the NFL.

Season 24 of the hit ABC reality show was chock-full of twists, with early frontrunners actress Heather Morris and Olympian Simone Biles eliminated long before many fans expected.
