Dancing's Melissa Rycroft on Her Big Win: I Think We Earned It

Maybe Melissa Rycroft should keep setting the bar low. The Bachelor alum, who finished third on Season 8 of Dancing with the Stars , just wanted to make it to Week 4 of All-Stars with Tony Dovolani . But she exceeded all of her — and arguably everyone's — expectations by taking home the Mirrorball trophy and overcoming season-long front-runners Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough in the process. "Honestly, I don't think anyone predicted us to win," Rycroft tells TVGuide.com. "We wanted to win, but we certainly didn't expect to. I'm still in shock." See what else Rycroft has to say about her big win below.

Shawn Johnson and her pro partner, Derek Hough, made history tonight (Nov. 26) on "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars." The couple wowed in their perfect-scoring "supersize freestyle," a medley tribute to all their routines this season.
