SPOILER ALERT! Planet Mirrorballus has a new ruler. (For one night only; then power transfers back to Maks Tom Bergeron.) After tonight’s two-hour Dancing With the Stars season 13 finale, one of our three finalists — butt-monster Rob Kardashian (pictured, right), weight loss champion Ricki Lake, or DANCMSTR J.R. Martinez — has finally won the COVETED MIRRORBALL TROPHY.

Rob led in scoring after Monday’s finals, but earlier today readers overwhelmingly voted that J.R. should and would win.

Ready? The season 13 winner is….

J.R. Martinez and his partner Karina Smirnoff!

Runners-up: Rob Kardashian and his partner Cheryl Burke

Third place: Ricki Lake and Derek Hough

Did the right Sparkalien win? Discuss!

Tristan and his pot o’ gold would like to remind you to go peruse the Hidden Gems of the Season 13 Finals while waiting for my full season finale recap!
