Last night, frontrunner J.R. Martinez and his gorgeous partner Karina Smirnoff scored Season 13’s first perfect 30s. Which got us thinking: how many times did each Dancing With the Stars star earn a perfect score, before then going on to win the whole competition? We took a look back and, it turns out, getting a perfect score isn’t only a requirement for the Mirror Ball trophy — you’ve got to get a perfect score more than once.
