As "Dancing With the Stars" came to an end last night, it looked like Bill Engvall's underdog run was going to end, too.
The comedian and his pro partner, Emma Slater, had the lowest score among the eight remaining couples following Monday night's performance.
After Jack Osbourne was declared "safe" by co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet, Engvall was the last celebrity left on the floor, so all that was left was the farewell dance, right?
The first rule of "Dancing with the Stars" is to always expect the expected.

Although she didn't make it far in the competition, Harper can consider that a mission accomplished.
Keyshawn Johnson won't be asking Tom Bergeron to just give him the darn Mirrorball Trophy this year.
The former NFL receiver was the first celebrity contestant eliminated from the 17th season of "Dancing with the Stars" on Monday, capping a two-hour marathon that saw all 12 couples perform a Latin dance before learning their fate.

But with two finalists left, Des rallied on Monday's "Bachelorette" finale to figure out if either of the contenders could be the right guy for her.
At first, Monday night's "Bachelorette" episode looked like something we've already seen before.
It started off with the proverbial group date that would've been hip about five or six years ago - in this case, a dodgeball competition among several of Desiree's suitors - and continued with a one-on-one date involving the classic show standby of climbing on the side of a building.
But between those dates was an explosive situation that led to one suitor getting the boot.
