J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff are the winners of “Dancing With the Stars” Season 13. The motivational speaker and Army veteran was a constant fan favorite, and fought an ankle injury during the last few episodes to beat out fellow finalists Rob Kardashian and Ricki Lake.

“You are amazing,” said Martinez to his partner Smirnoff. “I’m so grateful that I was able to be a part of your first mirror ball trophy.” The two performed a jive and a samba for their final dances.

Season 13 of “Dancing With the Stars” will go down in history for its inclusion of Cher‘s transgender son Chaz Bono, who recently underwent a sex-reassignment operation and competed as a male.
