Curious as to where your favorite stands after one week of dancing?? You’ve come to the right place. That said – this could all be crap by the time the couples do their next dance. I fully expect the judges to level the playing field (cuz they’re stupid like that) with the exception of their designated favorite. I have a feeling that will be Jaleel and William, if CAI and Bruno have anything to say about it. The Vagina vote wins every time. At least Jaleel is a kick ass dancer. William? Not so much. He’s alright. But starting out with overscoring so many people? Likely means they will do some leveling next week.
Anyway, let’s look at the couples and their percentages of the total:
The Judges Scores and Percentages
To give you some perspective, last season there was a much more realistic 3.5% spread between the top and the bottom. This season? Not so much.
Anyway, there is a lot of danger for a lot of people with the scoring so close. The only people truly safe are Jaleel and Katherine; even as little known (ringer) as she is, I don’t think that EVERY other dancer is going to get more votes than she did. Because that is what would have to happen. Jaleel will easily get the one vote that he needs, but the people below her would each need the following for Katherine to go home.
That’s what it would take for Katherine to go home. Now, I think that Katherine has “shocking elimination” written all over her BUT, if she keeps the point spread like it is, she’ll be safe for a long while. I doubt very much that Gavin is getting the votes to beat her right now, and I doubt Roshon is yet either. I don’t really think that Maria and Donald are generating that many more votes than her yet, but that could easily change. Her dance was pretty and very well executed, but as we’ve said ad nauseum around here – you have to have the whole package. She strikes me as Audrina did – except Katherine (like Maria) has a much better partner. Plus Katherine has a lot more dance experience than Audrina did (but she had none, if I recall). Read more..
