One of the biggest complaints people have about Dancing with the Stars is that sometimes the stars aren't actually all that famous. Derek Hough, however, usually gets paired with one of the more famous female stars - and for good reason, he's probably the most well known dancer on the show. After all, he's danced on that stage for 16 seasons, won six mirrorball trophies, and had two Emmy wins.

Derek Hough has had quite a run, and he might have just wanted to go out with a bang. Last night, Derek and Bindi Irwin won again, and it might be the last time we will see him competing on that stage.
"I don't know, who knows," Derek told E! News' Sibley Scoles when asked if he would be returning for season 22. "I have to say this isn't a bad way to go out."
It shouldn't really come as a surprise to fans of the show, who may have noticed Derek's waning interest in the show, said that Bindi really made this season feel special to him. Last season, Derek tried to do too much and hurt himself and knocked Nastia Liukin out of the running.
Rob Wade told E! News how difficult the decision was for the pro. "It was tough for him. We had a real heart to heart. It wasn't an easy decision and it was difficult because I feel like, if not a father, a bit of an uncle to these guys and he was struggling with it so much," Wade said.
Still, fans might remember that he also said he wasn't going to compete this season either, and made a last minute change and decided to do so.

Rumor also has it that Sharna Burgess, who has quickly become a fan - but maybe not the judge's - favorite won't be returning after her second place finish with Nick Carter.
