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 should have won and those posters saying that Helio did good from the beginning...so did Mel...that would explain why her and Maks had the highest overall score for the entire season. The bottom line is that this competition is part popularity so if Helio grabbed the hearts of all of the middle aged women who watch the show with his goofy...and not at all attractive...grin then good for him. Its not like he was that much worse than Mel anyway but Julianne is so good that it is hard to even notice that he is not as good as she makes him look.

MEL B WAS ROBBED!!!!!!!!!!! She should have won and everybody knows it. She was the best dancer on the show and was so from the beginning. Out of 15 dances she had 15 good dances. Helio had maybe 3 good dances....At Best! He was a freakin trainwreck in the beginning. Granted he did improve from week 1 to week 10 but not enough to win. Good from him for making it to the finals but he shouldn't have won. If you ask me he should have never made it to the finals and neither should Marie have. Especially since Sabrina got voted off during week 6. That whole show is a joke. Melanie was robbed and it was all part of this conspiracy to have yet another male win. I tried voting on Monday and I couldn't get through. The line was hella busy. And when I finally did get through it was too late and I only had time to vote once. I voted for Mel online every Monday and I voted by calling in from 4 different phone and the line was never busy. Now all of a sudden during the finals the lines are busy?? IT WAS A CONSPIRACY!! There's no way a person who sold out a concert in 38 seconds could lose to a freakin' race car driver. Nobody even knows who he is. Nobody was voting for him anyway.....they were all voting for Julianne. Melanie was the best dancer and she was robbed. That show is a joke.

Congrats to Helio & Julianne and the rest of you get over it. The point of the competition is about who entertains the best. Mel B may have dance great but Helio danced and was entertaining and fun to watch. You have to like the entire package not just one part. Helio & Julianne were fun to watch, they had adorable interaction and their dancing was entertaining. They were the clear winners!!!!!!!!!!!!

I picked Helio to win early on, although I would have been just as happy had Mel won. On the other hand, Sabrina's dance last night was far and away the best performance and I wish her talent had been rewarded by the audience. Perhaps they should have a "Judges Award" also. It doesn't seem right that the best dancer gets voted off, perhaps because she is little known by the core audience. Helio is terrific though and I'll definitely tune in next season.

Helio and Julianne deserved to win. They did a great job. I, personally, voted for Mel and Maks - they were my favorite... but grow up people. The judges themselves said that Helio had the showmanship of Marie and the technical qualities of Mel, and they had a bigger fan base. That is why people vote!!!! The truth of the matter is, MANY more women watch the show - and in my opinion, that is why MEN win the competition. Sabrina got voted off way too soon. Why? Because her following of teenage girls and boys probably aren't watching Dancing With the Stars. :P
