Alfonso Ribeiro is willing to burn a few bridges just to take home that shiny Mirror Ball Trophy.

Per the news outlet, Alfonso’s decision was based on money … Winning DWTS and making $345K outweighed traveling to New Jersey to pocket only $35K.

According to TMZ, the club was livid, mainly because the actor’s face is on the promotional flyer. Not to mention, the venue, who already paid $1,500 for a customized cake, has to go back and refund $10K worth of pre-sold tickets.
