Who won Dancing With the Stars last night seemed almost a foregone conclusion to anyone who has been watching Season 16 religiously. Let’s face it, Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough have been dominating Dancing With the Stars 2013 all season long. While there was always the chance for a last minute shakeup result, it would have been seriously shocking had they not taken home the Mirror Ball trophy.
We don’t really want to call Season 16 boring per se… but anyone who didn’t see the writing on the wall practically from the first week was probably drunk. Thankfully, despite the ultimate predictability of who won Dancing With the Stars from the moment Kellie hit the dance floor, a season of truly delightful performances still made it worth watching — mostly.
Former American Idol contestant Kellie Pickler is now officially engaged to boyfriend Kyle Jacobs. Pickler says Jacobs proposed to her on June 15 under the sunset on a beach in Florida.
Kellie Pickler and Kyle Jacobs, a songwriter, met through friends have been together for over two years. Jacobs proposed to Pickler on a very special day for the country music star; the birthday of her late grandmother. Pickler was raised by her grandmother after she was abandoned by her mother and her father ended up in jail.
“It turned out to be the most amazing day of my life,” the former American Idol contestant told People. “My whole world changed. We both feel like we got my grandmother’s blessing.”
â€œI remember saying to Kyle, â€˜Baby itâ€™s like Iâ€™m dreaming â€“ but if this isnâ€™t real, Iâ€™m going to be very upset!â€™â€ Pickler said.
