Born in Marietta, Georgia
Nickname is Mel
Winner of the 8th season of the reality TV series 'So You Think You Can Dance?' (2011)
Why she might be annoying
She's short for a dancer (just scraping the five foot mark).
Her small frame and bubbly personality have drawn comparisons to Mary Lou Retton.
One of her hobbies is collecting nail polish.
She was a frontrunner the entire season (never landing in the Bottom 3), so her victory was not exactly a surprise.
Why she might not be annoying
Her father had a liver transplant, but died when she was just 12 years old.
Besides dancing, she plays the piano, sings, and is an accomplished artist (studying art at Fordham University).
Guest judges Lady GaGa, Neil Patrick Harris, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and others praised her dancing and personality.
Another guest judge, Kenny Ortega, stated, 'I would stand in line and I would elbow people out of my way to work with Melanie,' then hinted there may be a role for her in his 'Dirty Dancing' remake.
She was charming and humble throughout the competiton, and took time to praise her partner from several routines, Guam's Marko Germar.
As a Final Four contestant she won the crown with an unprecedented 47% of the vote (August 11, 2011).
