What does the Dancing With The Stars winner get?

The Dancing With The Stars competition has a highly sought-after prize among the contestants.

Aside from taking home the mirrorball trophy, each contestant gets paid for participating in the competition.

The longer the contestants last without elimination, the higher their paycheck is toward the end of the show.

According to Variety, the stars are given a sign-on bonus of $125,000 just for showing up for the initial rehearsals and the first two weeks of filming.

However, sources say that there is a cap on how much someone can cash in from DWTS.

For season 28, that maximum amount was reportedly $295,000, though it has been much higher in previous seasons.

Iman Shumpert took home gold during season 30's finale.

The NBA champion made history as the first-ever basketball player to make it to the finale and shocked fans when he won the entire competition.

How do you win DWTS?

Each week a couple is eliminated from DWTS.

The couple who receives the lowest combined total of judges' points and audience votes will be eliminated from the show until there is only one last standing couple.

In past seasons, viewers have been able to vote for their favorite couple online or by text message during the live broadcast of the show.

Season 30 currently has four couples remaining in the semi-finals.

As the competition nears its end, judges weed out contestants through double-eliminations. 

How can I watch DWTS?

Dancing with the Stars will air live on ABC every Monday at 8pm-10pm.

The 30th season of the show premiered on September 20, 2021.

Last season, Kaitlyn Bristowe and her partner Artem Chigvintsev won the dance competition while Hannah Brown and her partner Alan Bersten won the year before.
