Dancing with the Stars Season 11 – Who’s Dancing with Who? Guess!!

We have a few days to have our fun of guessing and matching pros with celebs before they make the announcement of the celebs on Monday night and the pairings Tuesday morning on GMA. In the interest of fun, I’ve complied a little list of stats and then played matchy matchy. :-) Personally, I think we’re missing at least THREE celebrities – I think one of the men listed below is wrong. Maybe more are wrong, we’ll have to wait and see. :-)

Who’s Dancing with Who?

Pro Height Height Celebrity Age
Derek 5ft 10in 5ft 3in Jennifer Grey 50
Mark 5ft 8in Unk Bristol Palin 19
Louis 5ft 7in 5ft 5in Margaret Cho 41
Maks 6ft 2in 5ft 7in Brandy 31
Tony 6ft 1in 5ft 7.5in Audrina Patridge 25
Corky 5ft 8in 5ft 3in Florence Henderson 76
Kym 5ft 7in 6ft 4in David Hasselhoff 58
Chelsie 5ft 2.5in ?? ?? ??
Cheryl 5ft 4in 6ft 2in Kurt Warner 39
Edyta 5ft 6in 6ft 7in Rick Fox 41
Lacey 5ft 3in ?? ?? ??
Anna 5ft 4in 5ft 10in Michael Bolton 56
Karnia 5ft 5in ?? Mike Sorrentino 27

As you can see, there are a few gaps. And I’d be willing to bet that a couple of these stars are wrong. I’m SURE I got a pairing wrong or two. The Kym/David pairing is per Just Jared. The Derek/Jennifer pairing is pretty much reported by everyone, and the Tony/Audrina pairing is based on Tony and his wife’s Twitter accounts. :-) The Corky/Florence pairing was reported by TMZ, but a few of us had speculated this might be the case in the comments on another post.

Notice anything about their ages?? Every decade is represented except for someone in their 60′s. But what else? Three people aged 50 or older and two of those are older than 55. That’s unbelievable. I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or a bad thing. We then have two people in their 40′s, two in their 30′s, two in their 20′s and one teenager. Crazy. I’m still wondering how many of these are red herrings put out by ABC/DWTS – I can’t wait till Monday.

No obvious ringers based on dance ability. But what about by fanbase? I think I would give the initial edge to Kurt Warner and Michael Bolton, but possibly also Jennifer Grey as a sentimental favorite (not to mention Derek’s own fanbase is nothing to sneeze at). Brandy and Audrina would appear to have an edge based on age and body type, but that’s what we said about Denise Richards. As it stands right now, if either Maks or Tony aren’t in the final, then THEY have the problem – everything seems to be in their favor, if these pairings are correct. And I’m reasonably certain Tony’s is, and that limits the possibilities for the rest of the guys. Can you see another way the men could match up?

As for the women, as usual I’m rather in the dark there, guessing up a storm. :-) Plus I think that Michael Bolton isn’t really on the show. You will notice that ABC claims only 12 couples – but I’ve got 13 pros up there. So, who’s NOT in that we think is in?? Louis? Karina??

ETA: If you want to see Derek sum up “the situation” perfectly go to PureDerekHough and watch the second video. LOL!

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

DWTS Season 11 PRO WATCH – Corky Ballas

….is back on the show and partnering Florence Henderson, if you believe TMZ. :-)

The rest? I’m confirming Tony because his wife is now following Audrina Patridge according to the twitter voices (and Jeniffer in the comments :-) ). Well…see below.

Chelsie Hightower – probably in
Cheryl Burke – Unknown – I assume yes
Edyta Slwinska – Unknown
Lacey Schwimmer – IN
Anna Trebunskaya – Probably In
Anna Demidova – OUT
Karina Smirnoff – Possibly In
Kym Johnson – Unknown, but tweeted she’s very excited and happy.
Ashly Costa – Probably out – tweeted “me too” to Jonathan.
Julianne Hough – OUT (Footloose)

Alec Mazo – Betting OUT
Corky Ballas – In
Derek Hough – Excited about new season and high fiving – IN.
Louis Van Amstel – Unknown
Mark Ballas – I bet In, tweeted he got good news today
Maks Chmerkovskiyi – I bet In
Damian Whitewood – OUT
Dmitry Chaplin – OUT
Jonathan Roberts – OUT
Tony Dovolani – I bet in, he’s been tweeting very happily.

DWTS Season 11 – Pro AND Partner Watch

Tony is following now Audrina Patridge on Twitter. Jennifer Grey is following Derek, plus E!’s Watch with Kristen is confirming that partnership. Mark Ballas is following…Donald Duck and one of Derek’s old girlfriends. WTF? :-) He really is – I’m not kidding. Cheryl is following the Situation – but that could change. They find out their partners today. So, as with every season, the guessing games begin. Someone on twitter said they heard (what movie am I thinking of right now?) that Louis was getting Margaret Cho – which would have been my guess anyway, as she is rather small and so is he.

Initial Guesses – check back here later for hopefully MORE. ;-)

Tony Dovolani – Audrina Patridge
Louis Van Amstel – Margaret Cho
Derek Hough – Jennifer Grey
Cheryl Burke – Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino
Kym Johnson – Kurt Warner (this would be a wild-assed guess based on nothing)
Edyta Slwinska – David Hasselhoff (also a wild-assed guess based on nothing)
Mark Ballas – Bristol Palin (based on height and being right about Louis/Margie)

I’m going to do a bit more research this evening – barring big mouthed pros – and see if I can come up with reasonable guesses for the rest of them.
