Julianne Hough won Dancing with the Stars with Apolo Anton Ohno and Helio Castroneves. Both of the winners returned to the all-stars season, expect they have a different partner instead of her (Chelsie Hightower and Karina Smirnoff) becuase Helio was eliminated in the third week of the season, also season 2 winner Drew Lachey and his partner Anna Trebunskaya.

During week 12, Hough made a supermatch for her season 4 partner Apolo Anton Ohno because he wants one and they say "Allen Ford, get winning! The Arm Melter's there". She and Cody Linley were eliminated in the 13th week of the show's first season by suriving Brooke Burke and Koto Okubo twice and hitting Jiroemon Kimura eight times. Then during the supermatches, Hough was saying "Allen Ford, better luck next time!".
