What To Expect From 'Dancing With The Stars' Season Finale

Season 22 of Dancing with the Stars comes to an end early next week and the game is anybody's to lose now.

Nyle DiMarco & Peta Murgatroyd - Total Score: 317 / Average Score: 26.4

Despite being deaf, Nyle has proven himself as a competitive dancer and has frequently been at the top of the leaderboard. Nyle's confidence has served him well this season, especially after he won his first perfect score only after challenging himself to dance blindfolded last week. But his confidence may hinder him in the season finale. His remarks once lead to a minor spat between him and head judge Len Goodman after Nyle compared himself to Val, and as he's previously stated that he does not view the other celebrities as being better than him. Though this was before two teams (Paige/Mark and Wanya/Lindsay) skyrocketed to the highest scores of the season.



Paige VanZant & Mark Ballas - Total Score: 318 / Average Score: 26.5

Throughout the season, the UFC fighter has had trouble letting her guard down, and even admitted to Sasha Farber during switch-up week that she doesn't trust anyone she dances with. Paige finally shed some light on the subject, explaining that she was severely bullied in high school, which influenced her to learn mixed martial arts and ultimately pursuing a fighting career. After learning to trust carefree and fun-loving Mark, she's shown the audience her emotional side and earned two perfect scores in the process. But she'll need to continue to show her vulnerability to win this fight.

Ginger Zee & Valentin Chmerkovskiy - Total Score: 310 / Average Score: 26

The Good Morning America meteorologist has had a busy schedule all season. Between caring for her new baby, being a wife and having a fulltime job, she's not had much time to focus on rehearsals with Val. Once at the bottom of the leaderboard this season, Val nearly pushed Ginger to her breaking point to earn the first perfect score of the season. Ginger has kept it up since then, but has consistently had problems letting go and embodying the characters she's portraying through dance. She has the potential to win, but only if she gives herself to the dance.

Watch the Dancing with the Stars two-part season finale on Monday 8 p.m. ET | 7 p.m. CT and Tueday 9 p.m. ET | 8 p.m. CT on ABC.
