Judge Carrie Ann Inaba thought Van Der Beek’s performance was “insane” and also told him, “This was your dance, truly.” Len Goodman believed he was “dramatic” and also “solid,” though there were moments once it can have actually been sharper. Bruno Tonioli called it “grand also spectacle,” a “effective performance,” and a “huge hit.” Inaba and Tonioli offered him 9s while Goodguy provided him an 8, for a total of 26 out of 30.

But the judges were even even more impressed by Lynch’s performance, at least on the basis of their scores. He gained 10s from Inaba and also Tonioli and 9s from Goodguy and also Julianne Hough, that was a full time judge that season. But probably the “Pirates” paso will rotate out to be a good luck charm in the long run. Lynch went on to end up second for the seaboy, shedding the Mirror Ball Trophy to Rumer Willis. Though I guess you can call that a curse, since I’m certain Van Der Beek would rather win than finish second — the “Curse of the Babsence Pearl” perhaps?

Interestingly, Van Der Beek wasn’t the only rerun on “Disney Night” this seachild. Seakid 20 featured Noah Galloway‘s “Aladdin” foxtrot to “A Whole New World”; this week Hannah Brown also perdeveloped an “Aladdin” foxtrot to “A Whole New World.” And that “Disney Night” featured Willis’s “Little Mermaid” samba to “Poor Unfortunate Souls”; this week’s present had actually Lauren Alaina likewise dancing a “Little Mermaid” samba, though to a different song, “Under the Sea.”
