So now that we know who most of the cast is I decided to whip up a quick breakdown of how the Season 15 cast would fare against one another now.
However, then I started thinking: How cool would it be to see how they would have fared against one another with the professional partners that they had before? Yes, I know that there are duplicates here and there but if you were able to clone those pros… how would the “All Star” cast fare? Well let’s find out!
|CELEBRITY||PROFESSIONAL||ORIGINAL RANK||NEW RANK|
|Apolo Anton Ohno||Julianne Hough||Winner||Winner|
|Shawn Johnson||Mark Ballas||Winner||2nd|
|Drew Lachey||Cheryl Burke||Winner||3rd|
|Gilles Marini||Cheryl Burke||2nd||4th|
|Hélio Castroneves||Julianne Hough||Winner||5th|
|Emmitt Smith||Cheryl Burke||Winner||6th|
|Joey Fatone||Kym Johnson||2nd||7th|
|Bristol Palin||Mark Ballas||3rd||8th|
|Kelley Monaco||Alec Mazo||Winner||9th|
|Melissa Rycroft||Tony Dovolani||3rd||10th|
|Kirstie Alley||Maksim Chmerkovskiy||2nd||11th|
|Pamela Anderson||Damian Whitewood||6th||12th|
|Sabrina Bryan||Mark Ballas||7th||3rd (before Drew)|
|Carson Kressley||Anna Trebunskaya||8th||12th (before Pamela)|
|Kyle Massey||Lacey Schwimmer||2nd||4th (before Gilles)|
An interesting breakdown to be sure… granted probably not accurate but what can you do? On the other hand this is with the assumption that everyone was with their original partner but that’s not going to happen, not by a long shot. So with the information that we do know about the celebrities (occupation, current age) how would they fare on the season?
|Apolo Anton Ohno||Olympian||30s||2nd|
|Drew Lachey||Band Member||30s||3rd|
|Joey Fatone||Band Member||30s||4th|
|Kelly Monaco||Soap Opera Star||30s||7th|
|Melissa Rycroft||Reality TV Star||20s||9th|
|Sabrina Bryan||Disney||20s||3rd (before Drew)|
|Carson Kressley||Host||40s||12th (before Pamela)|
|Kyle Massey||Disney||20s||3rd (before Drew)|
Without knowing the professional partner, it is interesting to see how there are some that can stay relatively in the same area while others are all over the place in the rankings. For example Hélio Castroneves appears to be stronger with the right professional dancer, mainly because athletes in general tend be in the middle of the road.
Keep in mind this are predictions without a professional partner… I would be interested to know who the partner could possibly be and how would that affect the above rankings.
