Mark Ballas, who is headed to the Season 14 Finals with partner Katherine Jenkins, told E! who he thinks should definitely come back: "Sabrina Bryan, Kristi Yamaguchi, Shawn Johnson, Chelsea Kane, Hines [Ward], Gilles [Marini], Melissa Rycroft, J.R. [Martinez], Apolo [Anton Ohno], Helio Castroneves, that'd be good!"
One of the reasons Mark’s spontaneous list is so interesting is because it includes contestants who have already won Mirror Ball trophies — J.R. Martinez in Season 14; Kristi Yamaguchi in Season 6; Shawn Johnson in Season 8; Hines Ward in Season 12; Apolo Anton Ohno in Season 4; and Helio Castroneves in Season 5 — and others who haven’t.
Does that mean that past winners will be mixed in with contestants who came close? And is that fair?
