TV Review: 13 reality TV hits: Best season was...

Whether the competitors were almost unfairly good or deliciously bad , there wasn't a weak link on season 10. Third-place finisher Erin Andrews eventually became DWTS 's cohost in season 18. The season also set a precedent for allowing semi-professional dancers to compete, upping the quality of the routines and resulting in a spate of winners including Glee 's Amber Riley, former Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader Melissa Rycroft , and Olympic Ice Dancing gold medalist Meryl Davis.
