You’d think that for the number-two reality show in the United States and a top-five most-popular show, one that doesn’t even award a cash prize, could afford a decent trophy. But no: ABC’s “stupid trophy” is a certified POS. First Cheryl Burke’s crumbled, and now Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas’ trophies were both broken during a flight. ABC is repairing them, the AP reports, but since they’re such cheapskates, it’s probably just with duct tape.
