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.
