Mark Ballas, Shawn Johnson

Note to future Dancing with the Stars winners: Handle your Mirrorballs with care.

Newly crowned Season 8 champs Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas learned that the hard way after they took their trophies on a cross-country trip only to have them end up as shattered glass.

"We had to take them to New York and they shipped them back and when they opened the box, they were in pieces," Ballas tells E! Online.

Adds Johnson: "I called [Mark] and I was like, 'My trophy's broke!'"

The trophies are being repaired, but more importantly, with that many tiny broken mirrors, exactly how many years of bad luck are they in for?
