While I started watching this to be with the family (wife and kids love the show) I found that I enjoyed it and root for some people (the finalists) and against others (Blake and Camilla - booo! Someone get that girl a brass pole!)
The good guys won. Not sure how lucrative a dance career can be, but the $100,000 and the aprtment in NY aren't anything to sneeze at. I'm sure all the contestants will have careers and be happy with talk shows, book deals and the movies acusing bad judging and the requisite "the judge promised this for that favor" accusation.
Still, all that said, it was a fun ride.
