Dancing with the Stars: Predictions

Finally! An DWTS entry! Woot!

I haven't been doing any posting on Dancing with the Stars, or at all, for that matters. I swear that work has been eating my brains. However, there is no reason that I can't post my handicap for the dancers that are left at this stage of the game.

That, and a little survey.

So here goes:

  • Maria and Derek: So far, my favorites. Which is weird because I was never a Derek fan. However, as time goes by, the boy does grow on me. I swear that he is a genious choreographer and an incredible teacher. If he danced with a broom, the broom would be in the finals. And Maria Menounos ain't no broom.

    They will make it to the finals because: They are awesome. Maria is in top shape, what with being a pro wrestler as well as a tv host. She can dance, has musicality, has charisma and, most importantly, can emote. Derek is incredibly original in his choroeography.

    They will *not* make it to the finals because: Len keeps underscoring them. Derek tends to break the rules for originality's sake. He's a love him or hate him dancer. She is injured and she could choke at the last minute.

  • Peta and Donald: Peta is also a genius teacher and choreographer who is coming to her own in this second season.

    They will make it to the finals because: They are consistently good and are building a solid fan base. He's very athletic and has the musicality and the stamina. They really want to win.

    They will *not* make it to the finals because: Although his lines are very clean, he does tend to hunch a little bit. Len won't give them a 10 if his life depended on him. How strong their fan base is, remains to be seen.

  • Katherine and Mark: She is soooo beautiful and talented!

    They will make it to the finals because: She is probably the most charismatic of all the current contestants. She is a natural dancer and can accomplish anything. Mark is an awesome choreographer. She is adorable. She is paired with Mark Ballas.

    They will *not* make it to the finals because: She has trouble conveying any emotion other than cheerfulness. This is great in the case of a samba, but not in a tango. There is something that not always balances between her and Mark, especially when he gets frantic. She is paired with Mark Ballas.

  • Melissa and Maks: I love them because they won't leave no matter how much the judges rig the system to get rid of the couples that are underperforming. Go M&M!

    They will make it to the finals because: They evidently have a fan base who will pull them through. She is paired with Maks and we all love Maks no matter how bad the producers make him look. The fans will take them all the way.

    They will *not make it to the finals because: They are not dancing that well. Melissa is probably the one dancer left that is struggling the most. Eventually the judges scores will bring them down.

  • Roshon and Chelsy: They've been holding on for dear life, after being in the bottom 3 times.

    They will make it to the finals because: Roshon has been improving every week and he and Chelsy are just too cute. The judges like them and have done everything they can to keep them on board.

    They will *not* make it to the finals because: They've been on the bottom three times. How many times can you go there and not go home?

  • William and Cheryl: Oh, William! We are all in love with your hotness and your Significant Stares (TM)!!!

    They will make it to the finals because: He's got musicality, can dance, and he's hot as hell. Cheryl really knows how to choreograph to his strengths.

    They will *not* make it to the finals because: He's sort of a hot and cold dancer. He does great in the latin dances (duh!), but not so great in the ones in which he has to emote. I mean, more than just significant stares. That could be his downfall.

    So who are you rooting for? (It can be more than one!)

    I wasn't certain who to vote for, so I took the "Vincenti" approach to choosing ("Never get into games of death with a Sicilian!").

    I could choose K&M for all of the reasons you listed, but overly perky people annoy me. Cannot vote for them.

    I could choose D&P (not the animal rights activists!) for all the reasons you listed, but he has bad posture and Len's head would explode if they win. However, watching Len's head explode could be worth cheering for them ;-)

    I could choose M&M for all of the reasons you listed (plus they remind me of my favorite candy), but Melissa Gilbert annoys me. Cannot vote for them.

    I could choose W&C for all of the reasons you listed (and especially because I like hot guys), but too many "significant stares" annoy me . . . and I already have a hot guy.

    I could choose R&C for all of the reasons you listed, but they have been in the bottom 3 times. I think their number is up.

    Therefore, I chose M&D for all of the reasons you mentioned. Plus I think she might benchpress Len if he ticks her off too much (hmmm - maybe that's a reason to see them kicked off? Nah - Len would be scared to mess with her too much.).

    Pissing off Len is an acceptable sport. And we still luv him. He's like the crotchety uncle that everyone loves and dreads. And he has a wicked sense of humor.

    I don't even know how far behind I am now. The last time I tried to catch up the streaming wasn't working, so I'm even more behind than usual at this point in the season. I think if I start watching again, I'm going to have to start at the most recent and maybe not have time to go back and see the shows in the middle.

    But as you know, that won't stop me from voting in your polls.

    I'm rooting for Roshon and Chelsy (he isn't always consistent, but he has occasionally been brilliant) and Donald and Peta(he seems to be consistently improving in grace even if he does still huch), but I think that Maria and Derek are the most likely to win (she's really good and he's been showing her off well).

    William is hot, but I think you're spot on when it comes to his ability to emote.

    I suspect that Melissa and Maks's longevity is because Maks has a huge fan following, she wasn't keeping up the last time I watched the show.

    Katherine's dancing has been really good from what I've seen of her, but it's almost as if Mark is feeling threatened by having a really good partner and keeps trying to steal the spotlight, and she doesn't have a big enough fan following to help them out.

    I agree with you. I think that M&M are still there because we all love Maks, and besides it's funny to peeve Len off.

    On Katherine, Mark should just dance alone. He's always trying to outperform his partners, and it's not different with Katherine. It's been working out because she's so naturally talented, but it's looking more and more unbalanced as time goes by.

    I am glad that you enjoy responding to my silly polls. I certainly have a lot of fun making them :-)
