Upon announced as the winner, Jeanine said she never thought of giving an acceptance speech at the Kodak Theater where the finale was held. She thanked the dancing academy and her mother who encouraged her to jump into the dancing world as a child. As the winner, Jeanine is entitled to $250,000 in cash.

It was a reunion affair on the Thursday, August 6 finale. The Top 20 showed up to do a piece together and season 2's Talia Fowler appeared as a guest performer. The judges also got to pick their favorite dances throughout the season and had it performed on stage again.
