He may not have been the biggest name to ever compete on "Dancing With the Stars," but that didn't stop Donald Driver from outlasting his competition!
The Green Bay Packers wide receiver and his partner Peta Murgatroyd were crowned Season 14 champions and awarded the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy on Tuesday night. Think it'll look good next to that Super Bowl ring?
British classical singer Katherine Jenkins and her partner Mark Ballas were second, while Cuban-born telenovela star William Levy and his partner Cheryl Burke finished in third.
The 37-year-old shocked the judges and audience alike with his surprising technical skill -- his overall scores for the season ranked third, behind his fellow finalists Katherine and William. Those skills, coupled with his endearing charm, made him a fan-favorite from his first performance.
The NFL star is the third football pro to be crowned a "DWTS" champion, following in the footsteps of Season 3 winner Emmitt Smith and Season 12 champ Hines Ward.
Donald's victory was also a big triumph for his pro partner Peta -- the New Zealand-born stunner claimed the Mirror Ball Trophy after being eliminated first from the show last season! Congrats!
