DWTS 2014 Finale: Who Won Dancing With The Stars Season 18 (May 20)

We think it's pretty impressive how Mark Ballas danced in the DWTS 2014 finale with a bad shoulder following an accident during rehearsal, but it just wasn't quite enough to snag the mirror ball trophy.

The couple that landed in third-place was none other than Candace and Mark.

Candace gushed, "I feel like I already won...to be in third place in this competition."

Amy and Derek finished up in second place, meaning Meryl and Maks are the couple who won Dancing With The Stars Season 18 on the May 20 finale!

This wasn't exactly a huge surprise, of course, though fans of both Candace Cameron Bure and Amy Purdy were no doubt holding out hope until the end. Especially Amy fans; let's get real, who wasn't inspired by her this season?! And just going on last week's dances alone, she proved to be nearly as good a dancer as Meryl, feet or no feet; maybe even better.
