Dead heats. Killer dance moves. Ridiculous costumes. Who needs American Idol when you've got the final showdown of Dancing with the Stars Season 12? On the eve of the results show, Esquire.com caught up with Kym Johnson for the bottom line on what really goes on when then the cameras get turned off...
1. The Instructors Pick the Outfits
"I am guilty of dressing Hines up in some ridiculous outfits. Yes, yes I am. Tonight we're wearing black-and-gold - Steeler colors. Hines is a pretty classy guy, so he told me from the get-go, 'Don't make me wear frills or anything ridiculous like that. Don't make me take my shirt off.' I don't think we've gone too crazy."
2. The Prizes Could Be Better
"I wish there was more of a prize. You get a fantastic mirror-ball trophy, but there's no prize money or anything fantastic like that. It's the bragging rights."
