Now that all the hard work is behind him, DWTS’ newly crowned winner Donny Osmond has revealed to OK! he lost at least 20 pounds while doing the hit ABC reality show.

Donny, who danced to DWTS glory with partner and OK! blogger Kym Johnson, dropped the weight while juggling the dance series with the Las Vegas stage act he does with sister — and former DWTS finalist — Marie Osmond.

Just minutes after claiming Season 9’s mirror ball trophy, Donny told OK! he’d lost “at least 20 pounds. At least! I weighed myself last night. Every part of my body hurts, especially my broken toe. But that’s all right. I got the mirror ball. Who cares?!”

As previously reported, Donny’s fellow DWTS finalist Kelly Osbourne, who finished third (with singer Mya taking second place) also lost 20 pounds while doing DWTS.

And Donny’s sister Marie lost 27 pounds while working on the physically grueling show and following a Nutrisystem diet two years ago. She took off an additional 13 pounds after her dancing days were done for a total of 40.

Now that Donny has beaten Marie’s third place finish on DWTS, will he compete with her on weight loss, too? Stay tuned!
