Helio Castroneves!

11/28/2007 2:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Edging out favorite Mel B, race-car driver Helio Castroneves took home the disco ball trophy. Do women ever win this contest anymore?!

He and partner Julianne Hough came into the finals in second place, just one point behind the Spice Girl and his hotness Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Both couples received perfect scores of 30 from the judges in their final dance Tuesday.

As expected, Marie Osmond was eliminated first after her robot doll-inspired routine. QVC called, they'd like you back, Miss Osmond.

Looks like Hough is the lucky charm, having also won last year with speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno.

Mel was totally robbed. I watched this on and off for a few years now. I was happy for the ex Dallas Cowboy to win but I thought should Mario should have gotten it.

Mel B was good but she is a professional entertainer who has done dancing before as did Marie (who was not as talented). Helio is a professional race car driver who never danced before. He was outstanding! He had natural flair, rhythm, and more charisma than everyone put together. I am delighted he won...it was the only choice and the best one!

P.S. He and his partner would make the most adorable couple in private life..so much chemistry between them!!

Glad Marie didn't win that was a joke. Whether Mel & Max were arrogant that's not the point it's supposed to be who was the best that was not Helio & Julianne. As a team he relied on her entirely to much. Mel & Max held there own seperately and together like a true partner should.

What a fiasco!!! Dancing needs to do some mango, tango, salsa, two-step, watlz, and tap-dance its way to a better system of voting. Helio is NOT THE BETTER DANCER, AND EVERYONE KNOWS IT - ESPECIALLY HIS STARRY-EYED FANS. He won on POPULARITY -- THAT'S ALL. He pasted his face with that "phony" smile the whole time. You suckers!
Tell you what, put him up against Emmitt and see what happens.

Piece of advice Helio, keep race car driving.

Mel's the winner -- AND ALL YOU HATERS KNOW IT.

IM SOOOOO HAPPY HELIO WON. I DON'T CARE WHAT ANYONE SAYS..HE HAD TALENT, CHARISMA, PERSONALITY, HUMOR, ETC. HE WAS THE WHOLE PACKAGE. HE HAD A GREAT TEACHER/PARTNER, AND THEY BOTH JUST BROUGHT SO MUCH FUN INTO THAT SHOW. MEL B. AND MAX WERE GOOD, BUT TOO CONCEDED. I HONESTLY THINK THAT THE SPICE GIRLS KILLED IT FOR MEL B. THEY JUST GOT ON EVERYONES NERVES!!!! NEXT TIME DON'T INVITE THEM!!! GOOOOO HELIO!!!!!

The idea of this show is to take people who don't dance and see who becomes the best dancer. Mel B is a perfomer. Has been for years. She's a Spice Girl and I'm sure danced while in concert all the time. Helip is a racecar driver. He doesn't dance and never danced before and for him to go from no experience to where he ended up? He totally deserved the win. He had a much steeper hill to climb than Mel.

What a Crock... He's not even a good dancer... It should have been Mel B's victory. The women have do to way harder tricks and dance moves then the men do...

I hope this means I never have to see Donny and/or Marie on ET ever again.
I'm sooooo sick of their drama!
Pooooor Marie got a divorce, oh, so sad, however did she dance? And she is not the only one to have a parent die, or for that matter, lose a spouse, during Dancing...
What's the big f'in deal? blah, blah, blah, blah.

Can you say 'OVEREXPOSURE?' - please make it stop!

Helio is a racer in the IndyCarSeries - not F1 - and he is not going to NASCAR. He's has won the Indy 500 twice - a tough accomplishment. He's a racer, not a dancer, and never performed in public without a helmet on! He deserved to win - they got it right!!

I am so happy for Helio, he had been my second choice over Marie Osmond, but tallent wise, both are equal, it's just, no offense, Helio was physically able to do more than she. Now about Mel B. She made no secret that she knew she wasn't good enough to win the dance contest, and the dance couple of M/Mb made no secret that they were going for the fewer costume is better strategy, but Americans aren't fooled by nudity when it comes to talent. Please give us more credit than that, it wasn't about flashing your flesh, it was about flashing your talent. Congratulations to Helio and his wonderful partner, Julianne.

MEL B was so far in the lead , she was definitely the BEST dancer on this years show...and last years show as well...Hands Down!!! The judges need to have more to say about who wins by at least 60 percent...cause people just don't get it...nothing new with that...I will watch next season, but hope there is more fairness...Helio was good, Mel was outstanding and in a league all her own...Its like comparing Barry Bonds with Babe Ruth...not even close.
