Derek HoughDerek Hough is the most recent professional champion of Dancing With The Stars, after dominating Season 7 with partner Brooke Burke. Derek joined Dancing With The Stars in Season 5, when he and actress Jennie Garth finished fifth.

Derek and his Season 6 partner Shannon Elizabeth have been dating since their season together, when they were photographed walking and making out on a Malibu beach, which they surely never meant for anyone to see.

Derek's sister Julianne is also a DWTS competitor and champion. They were partly raised and trained by Season 7 DWTS pro Corky Ballas and his wife, and grew up with Corky's son and DWTS pro Mark Ballas. Derek and Mark are in a band together now.

Derek produced one of the many rehearsal-related injuries during Season 7, when he fell, hit his head and was taken to the hospital in a neck brace. It turned out he was OK.
