Steve-O is paired with Lacey Schwimmer on Dancing with the Stars 2009. Steve-O is going to be a disaster on this show. Not because he’s going to be a horrible dancer. I have a feeling he’s actually going to be a serviceable dancer. However, that’s what’s going to be the downfall for Steve-O.
Steve-O really is in the worst position possible. If he actually dances well, he’ll alienate all his fans. If he dances horribly, then the judges will rip him and Lacey apart. Basically, he’s in trouble no matter what he does.
Lacey really attracts a fair amount of fans herself. I really think that Lacey needs to keep taking risks with Steve-O and do something so interesting and unique that as many Steve-O fans as possible will vote for him.
In the end, I’m guessing that Steve-O will dance pretty well and get decent, but not great scores from the judges. Lacey will add just enough uniqueness to the dance to save some fan votes. Look at Steve-O to be sent home about the half way point of DWTS.
