The votes are in -- and John O’Hurley has bested Kelly Monaco to win the “Dancing With the Stars” title many thought he deserved in the first place.
“I’m very rarely beyond words, and I am right now,” O’Hurley said after the results were announced Thursday on the ABC show.
In a rematch, O’Hurley and his professional dancing partner, Charlotte Jorgensen, bested Monaco and her partner, Alec Mazo.
Monaco beat O’Hurley in the July 6 season finale of the show, but the win over the popular O’Hurley prompted skepticism over the voting process, which relied on both viewers and judges.
The victor of the rematch was chosen purely by viewers -- and co-host Tom Bergeron said the winner and loser were separated by just 1% of the votes.
