dwts finale season 13 'Dancing With the Stars': J.R. Martinez, Rob Kardashian or Ricki Lake, who won the mirror ball?It’s here, the big moment has arrived. After two hours of mostly filler, we find out who won the 13th season of “Dancing With the Stars” between finalists Ricki Lake, J.R. Martinez and Rob Kardashian.

In a bit of a shocker, Ricki Lake took 3rd place! We thought she was actually a shoo-in to win, even if her final night wasn’t as strong as the guys’ final night. Was that as surprising to you all as it was to us?

After Ricki was revealed as the third-place finisher, we figured J.R. was going to be the winner. And then it turns out … we were right! Good for them. This is his professional partner Karina Smirnoff’s first win of the Mirror Ball Trophy.

Congratulations to J.R. and Karina!
