Women around the United States are crying with tears of joy over the winner of Dancing with The Stars. Men around the United States are saying “Who Is JR Martinez?” DWTS fans around the world are cheering over JR Martinez winning the prime time dance off. Men everywhere are cheering about the fact there is one less crappy show on tv…Until the next Dancing With The Star season at least.
So who is JR Martinez and why is everyone happy he won? Well, the main reason is he danced his ass off (so I’m told). But the real reason people were cheering for him was the fact that Martinez, had come back from severe burns to 40 percent of his body. He was injured by an IED explosion while serving in Iraq.
JR Martinez and his partner Karina Smirnoff danced their hearts out in the finals against the tough competition of Rob Kardashian (how many damn Kardashians are there, and is there any way to stop them from breeding?) and Ricki Lake, who has clearly had a lot of time on her hands to practice her dancing. Maybe Ricki Lake can take over Oprah’s timeslot with a new talk show?
Anyways, Martinez’ Iraq injury story certainly helped lift ratings for this season’s Dancing With The Stars, but he won it not because of his story, but because of his heart and his talent. And he won it because of an amazing (and hot!) dance partner. Now, if only people would stop asking me “Who is JR Martinez?”
