“I think that this was one of the best competitions and Hannah worked her butt off. She did such a great job,” the “Queer Eye” star told “Us Weekly.”
Hmm, “best” might be debatable there.
Brown and Alan Bersten beat Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson for the Mirrorball trophy last week. Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber placed third, and Lauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko were in fourth place. Karamo, who finished in eighth place with Jenna Johnson, had nothing but high praise for all four couples who duked it out in the finale. “Everyone did such an awesome job,” he said. “And I mean, Hannah was perfectly designed for that dance floor and she took home the Mirrorball.”
Like everyone else, the activist was also “heartbroken” for James Van Der Beek when he revealed during the semifinal that his wife had suffered a miscarriage, after which the judges shockingly eliminated him over Brooke. Karamo, who had shared his own journey to fatherhood on “Dancing,” praised the actor and his wife Kimberly for being open with their story.
“What I was proud of was James’ strength and his wife’s strength to be able to share their pain with the world because I know so many people who have experienced loss and the loss of a child,” he said. “And a lot of times we feel like we need to hide that. And so the fact that he was open to share that was pretty amazing.”
