    Something tells me he'll remember to pay taxes on his race winnings.

    Will he able to stop from being prosecuted? Can't blame for not wanting to pay taxes but hey, we all have to.

    If Wesley Snipes didn't have to serve any time, but is on probation, then Helio shouldn't have to either. Should be fair.

    I thought Snipes got sentenced three years in prison for it?

    I hear the IRS is after Helio and his sister for tax evasion.

    Oooops! You already know.

    I have to say that I think the comment about dancing not being the only thing he faked, is really in poor taste. It's true that we don't know all the facts. So I will not rush to judgment. I loved his dancing and so did millions of others, that's why he won. Unless the implication is that all of us don't know great dancing when we see it.

    I can only hope that somehow things will work out for him, but it's a bad situation to be in. It is true that the IRS goes after the rich and famous with a vengeance.

    No, I do not think that the comment was in poor taste. Helio was not the best dancer of his season he just had a bigger fan base than the other dancers. Several castmates who were better dancers were sent home because they were not as well known as Helio. Remember this show is part popularity contest not purely a dance show. Else Cloris Leachmen and Jerry Springer would not have lasted as long as they did on their respective seasons.

    Helio didn't succeed on his fan base, he succeeded on JULIANNE's fan base getting him far enough that his personality won people over.

    PS - Snipes is IN jail, not on probation ... and what Helio is purported to do is WAY worse than simply not paying taxes.

    mbcrowder, I agree with you re: why Helio won DWTS.

    However, Wesley Snipes is not in jail - although he was sentenced to 3 yrs. He remains free on bail while he appeals his conviction.

    Helio was cleared of the charges.
