Dancing With the Stars season 28 has officially kicked off and the competition is already fierce. After freaking out over all the performances, the season premiere has us reminiscing about which celebrities have won the competition over the years.
There are a few Olympians in the mix, of course, but there is also a boy-band member and a former star from The Bachelor. Not to mention pro dancer Derek Hough has taken home the mirror ball trophy six times! As you place your bets on who will take home the Mirrorball trophy this year, check out the full list of past winners here.
Here’s Where Demi and Kristian Stand Following the Bachelor in Paradise Finale
When Demi Burnett went on Bachelor in Paradise season six, she had a casual relationship with Kristian Haggerty back home. Demi connected with Derek Peth early on and, despite that, she couldn’t stop thinking about Kristian. So when Kristian made a surprise entrance into Paradise, the two decided to work on being together. There were some challenges, including Demi being comfortable with her sexuality, but they fell in love and Demi proposed to Kristian.
The duo broke barriers by being the first same-sex couple to leave Paradise together and their relationship seems stronger than ever. On the reunion show, Demi revealed that she moved to Los Angeles in order to be closer to her fiancée. But there was still one thing left to do before Demi and Kristian rode off into the sunset.
“I’m so grateful that we went to Paradise and it gave us the opportunity to grow our love for each other,” Kristian said. “I know that last day in Paradise, that was the best day of my life, and I wouldn’t want to do this life with anyone else but you.”
Kristian got down on one knee and popped the question to Demi. How cute is it that both of them got to surprise one another with that special moment? We wish the best of luck to these lovebirds.
Walmart Is Hosting Its First-Ever Car Seat Trade-In Program Through the End of This Month
In honor of National Baby Safety Month, Walmart is hosting its first-ever Car Seat Trade-In Program this September. From Sept. 16-30, customers can bring in any expired or outgrown car seat (excluding booster seats) from any brand to trade for a $30 Walmart gift card that can be used to buy new baby gear or a brand-new car seat.
The old seats will then be recycled through TerraCycle, a waste management company. “Through the Walmart Car Seat Recycling Program, traditionally non-recyclable car seats are now nationally recyclable,” Tom Szaky, CEO and founder of TerraCycle, said in a press release. “We are proud to work with this forward-thinking company to offer families from coast-to-coast a way to give their car seat, the item that has kept their little ones safe, a second-life. Through this event, we expect to divert the plastic equivalent of approximately 35 million water bottles from landfills.”
Epic! Find your nearest participating Walmart store and get to trading beginning Sept. 16 through to the 30.
