Dancing with the Stars Season 15: Comparing the Cast to the Polls (from June)

Back in early-June I had a couple of polls up that asked who your favorite male and female stars were

Since the first week just completed I figured we take a look back and see how many of your favorites are actually in the cast of Season 15…

First off let’s look at the guys:


Well only four of the six male celebrities were some of your favorites from those early polls. Emmitt Smith and Helio Castroneves never even made this Top 12.

Now for the gals:


Interesting, of the seven women that is in the Season 15 cast, two were not in the original polls: Pamela Anderson and Bristol Palin.

What does this mean?

Well I was curious and as thus decided to cross reference with my prediction analysis of who would be eliminated when and I came with a few interesting conclusions. Below is a cross-reference table between the scores prediction post for Week 1 and the elimination predictions:

CELEBRITY
SCORE PREDICTION PLACEMENT
ELIMINATION PREDICTION PLACEMENT
Emmitt
11th
3rd
Bristol
10th
6th
Helio
6th
11th
Pamela
12th
13th

For some reason I have a sneaky suspicion that a few of these stars are being set up as elimination fodder in the guise of being an “All-Star”. Yeah, I know… TPTB are always trying to set up storylines in an effort to propel others…

Right now, Pamela was the most obvious as elimination fodder…. if the first four eliminations include at least two of the above… if not three… well let’s say I wouldn’t be surprised.
