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?
|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|
|Cheryl||5ft 4in||6ft 2in||Kurt Warner||39|
|Edyta||5ft 6in||6ft 7in||Rick Fox||41|
|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!
