She went on sharing, "A lot of people told me to visualize that confetti. Man, I have to tell you, it was not even anywhere as good in my mind as it was tonight. It was just fantastic."

During the finale which was aired on Tuesday, May 24, it was also confirmed that Anna Kournikova will join the reality show next season. The tennis player will replace trainer Jillian Michaels.
