Derek Hough is a "Dancing With the Stars" record holder - he recently won his 4th championship on the latest season of the TV dancing competition with celeb partner Kellie Pickler, after previously nabbing the title with partners Brooke Burke-Charvet, Jennifer Grey, and Nicole Scherzinger. But with four glittery mirror ball trophies now in his possession, where does he keep all of that hardware?

In his blog for TV Guide, Hough wrote, "I don't know where Kellie's going to put her trophy, but I'm going to put mine with the others. Now I have double bookends! Where I keep the trophies, there are four shelves. I'm going to take the cupboard door off the bottom one so it'll fit with the other three."

Where do other "DWTS" winners keep their trophies?

In 2010, Derek's winning season 10 partner Nicole Scherzinger told she planned to give her trophy away. "I'm going to give it to my mom because she's the reason I really did this show," the Pussycat Doll said, "This is for her!"

Season 13 winner J.R. Martinez joked about his plans for his trophy in 2011. He told Us Weekly, "Right now I'm going to tuck mine into my bed and it's going to roll around with me. And then after that, once we've kind of grown apart, I'm going to glue it on the hood of my car and drive around Los Angeles and honk my horn, and I'll be my own parade!"

But J.R.'s is pro partner, Karina Smirnoff, had more traditional plans: "I'll put my trophy in my studio in Woodland Hills," she said. "I have a space with spotlights and I'm going to polish it every morning!"

Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson (her season 8 partner was Mark Ballas) told the Des Moines Register her trophy is home sweet home -- at her parents' place. "It's at my parents' house (in West Des Moines), actually," she said. "It's not on display, but my parents seem to show it off more than my (Olympic) medals."

"Dancing With the Stars" season 15 winner Melissa Rycroft is super proud -- and protective -- of her trophy. When she won in 2012, she told Extra exactly where her trophy was going. "On my front yard," she said. "I'm going to put spotlights on it and a big alarm system in case anyone tries to touch it."

And Drew Lachey won the second season of the competition with partner Cheryl Burke, but the 98 Degrees singer told OK Magazine the blinged-out trophy can pose a hazard. "I keep it as far away from my kids as possible, because chunks of mirror fall off," he laughed. "It's a choking hazard for my kids. No, it's in my office, up on the shelf. I've found that every time someone comes over to the house, they want to see it, so I've got to keep it out. It's a conversation piece."
