DWTS Season 14 Stats Class – Week 9

Week 9! The Semi-finals. Each couple will be dancing the two dances that they have yet to learn this season. So let’s see where they could be placed

DONALD DRIVER
Dance 1: Waltz
Average Scores:
– Age: 27.333
– Occupation: 25.800
– Professional Partner: N/A
Predicted Score: 27

Dance 2: Samba
Average Scores:
– Age: 26.700
– Occupation: 26.000
– Professional Partner: N/A
Predicted Score: 26

Predicted Rank: 4th
Comments: Some NFL players have done rather well in the Waltz this late in the season
– Season 3’s Emmitt Smith: 28 in Week 7
– Season 10’s Chad Ochocinco: 27 in Week 9
– Season 11’s Kurt Warner: 24 in Week 8
So seeing a predicted score of 17 for Donald isn’t all that far fetched to me. On the other hand there is more of a point difference when it comes to the Samba:
– Season 3’s Emmitt Smith: 30 in Week 10
– Season 6’s Jason Taylor: 23 in Week 8
– Season 7’s Warren Sapp: 25 in Week 10
– Season 10’s Chad Ochocinco: 25 in Week 9
– Season 12’s Hines Ward: 30 in Week 10
Again the predicted score for the Samba seems to be rather close as well… As for his placement? I dear hope not.

MARIA MENOUNOS
Dance 1: Argentine Tango
Average Scores:
– Age: 28.667
– Occupation: 28.500
– Professional Partner: 29.500
Predicted Score: 29

Dance 2: Jive
Average Scores:
– Age: 26.600
– Occupation: 22.500
– Professional Partner: 24.750
Predicted Score: 25

Predicted Rank: 3rd
Comments: The only other celebrity that was a host in their 30s and did the Argentine Tango would be Season 10’s Erin Andrews who received a 28 in Week 8. While as Season 7’s Brooke Burke received a 21 for her Jive on Week 9… Do I see Maria with a higher score than those of her predecessors? Possibly… only time will tell.

WILLIAM LEVY
Dance 1: Tango
Average Scores:
– Age: 27.813
– Occupation: 29.000
– Professional Partner: 28.000
Predicted Score: 28

Dance 2: Samba
Average Scores:
– Age: 27.250
– Occupation: 27.000
– Professional Partner: 27.000
Predicted Score: 27

Predicted Rank: 2nd
Comments: Oddly enough the only two actors in their 30s that have done the Tango this late in the season are both from Season 3:
– Joey Lawrence: 28 in Week 8
– Mario Lopez: 30 in Week 9
On the other hand only Mario Lopez has done the Samba this late in the season and he received a 29. In my opinion William isn’t exactly the dancer that Mario was, but he has been getting the scores. Who knows what may happen come the semi-finals.

KATHERINE JENKINS
Dance 1: Quickstep
Average Scores:
– Age: 27.813
– Occupation: 29.000
– Professional Partner: 28.000
Predicted Score: 28

Dance 2: Salsa
Average Scores:
– Age: 28.667
– Occupation: 27.333
– Professional Partner: 26.000
Predicted Score: 27

Predicted Rank: 1st
Comments: Unfortunately the only other singer in her 30s to have done the Quickstep this late in the season was Season 9’s Mya who received a 29 in Week 8. There is more information when it comes to the Salsa:
– Season 8’s Lil Kim received a 27 in Week 9
– Season 9’s Mya received a 30 in Week 9
In a lot of ways Katherine is a very strong dancer, so I’m looking for her to come rather closer to a perfect score this time around, if not get a perfect score.
