Luke Jacobz wins Dancing with the Stars: All Stars
A perfect score lands Luke Jacobz the mirror ball trophy -but what happened to the charity prize?
Actor and host Luke Jacobz has win the mirror ball trophy in Seven’s Dancing with the Stars: All Stars Grand Final.
Jacobz scored a perfect 40 points -as did Series 1 champion Bec Hewitt- but Jacobz pipped her in the audience voting.
It was an impressive run by Jacobz who wowed judges in the final weeks, particularly with a perfect score for a dramatic Pasodoble in last week’s semi final.
The final judges scores were:
Luke Jacobz and Jorja Freeman – 40
Bec Hewitt and Craig Monley – 40
Lincoln Lewis and Lily Cornish – 38
Kyly Clarke and Gustavo Viglio – 37
Ada Nicodemou and Aric Yegudkin – 37
Manu Feildel and Katrina Patchett – 32
However Seven only awarded $20,000 to his chosen charity, The Charlie Teo Foundation, less than half the $50,000 prize awarded by 10 last year (Seven previously donated around 50% of net profits from phone voting, but this varied wildly).
Nevertheless, Luke Jacobz was happy with his win.
“To win is honestly the greatest achievement of my life. To experience it with Jorja, who is by far the most creative and talented person I know, is like a dream,” he said.
Dancing With The Stars: All Stars is produced by Warner Bros International Television Production Australia and BBC Studios, from a format created by the BBC and distributed by BBC Studios.
