‘Dancing With the Stars’ selects Season 18 champs

“Dancing With the Stars” contestants — and pretty much everyone’s favorite couple this season — Meryl Davis and her professional dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were named the winners of Season 18 on Tuesday night’s finale.

Davis, an Olympic ice dancer who caught some flack at the start of the season because she’s technically a dancer already, beat out runners up Derek Hough and partner Amy Purdy, who is the first paralympian to dance on the show.

“Full House” actress Candace Cameron Bure and pro dancer Mark Ballas took third.
