They beat out mixed martial arts fighter Paige VanZant and Mark Ballas, and meteorologist Ginger Zee and Valentin Chmerkovskiy for the show's coveted mirror-ball trophy. The win came one night after DiMarco and Murgatroyd astounded the judges and viewers with their passionate, meaningful interpretation of "The Sound of Silence."
