Awww, Andy Dick’s RumorFix videos are back!!! I always love these. This time, he helps to clear up the “Diva” rumors about Sean Lowe….
“I’ve always made a total effort, even when the odds seemed entirely against me. I never quit trying; I never felt that I didn’t have a chance to win.” ~Arnold Palmer on beating the odds
Well, last week Sports Bovada nailed it by putting Lisa Vanderpump at the bottom of their odds for who will win Dancing With The Stars despite many of our protests! Will they nail it again this coming week? Below are their new sets of Odds. Note that their Odds aren’t too different from the week before except for putting Victor at the bottom of the pack and tying him with Andy and D.L. again. I’m sorry, but, I don’t understand why they keep giving Andy Dick low odds with them when he’s been a stand out, likable, and has done as well as he has? You’d think they’d atleast tie him with Ingo and Sean or put him above them? But hey, keep giving him low odds as he keeps proving their odds wrong every week!!! I loved the same challenge when playing tennis. 🙂
Zendaya Coleman 8/5
Kellie Pickler 2/1
Jacoby Jones 13/4
Aly Raisman 5/1
Ingo Rademacher 33/1
Sean Lowe 33/1
Andy Dick 100/1
D.L. Hughley 100/1
Victor Ortiz 100/1
Here are last week’s Las Vegas Odds to compare.
Zendaya Coleman 8/5
Kellie Pickler 2/1
Jacoby Jones 3/1
Aly Raisman 15/2
Ingo Rademacher 25/1
Sean Lowe 25/1
Victor Ortiz 75/1
Andy Dick 100/1
D.L. Hughley 100/1
Lisa Vanderpump 100/1
Let’s see what my partners in crime think and be sure to tell us what you think too in comments….
Courtney: I think Andy is unfortunately getting stuck with sh*t odds because they keep putting the poor guy in jeopardy, and he has been in the bottom 2 once – and like so many viewers that can’t seem to understand that “in jeopardy” means “not necessarily in the bottom 2, and we could be totally pulling your leg and this person is completely safe!”, I think the oddsmakers are also falling into that trap and thus assume that Andy is consistently in danger, which I’m not sure I believe. If anything, I think Andy’s odds are improving, while Victor’s, D.L.’s, & Sean’s are getting worse – Sean in particular seems to have lost his luster in the eyes of the judges and I think he could be bottom 2 material in the coming week, if he’s not getting the votes. As for the other end of the spectrum – I agree that Zendaya & Kellie are the frontrunners FOR RIGHT NOW, but I still think we may see a situation like we did in season 14: two contestants basically take turns leading the pack for the bulk of the season, there’s some “pimping” going on, viewers get tired of it, and a 3rd, “alternative” choice (in this case, Jacoby) ends up subtly sneaking his way into the top of the pack and winning the whole thing. Not sure what to make of Aly – I think TPTB, like Sean & Peta with that damn Murgalo, are trying to make her a “thing”, but I’m not sure that it’s really catching on the way they want it to. She doesn’t have the same appeal that big personalities like Zendaya, Kellie, & Jacoby have, and nor the charm of Victor, Ingo, or Andy. She’s got the dance skills, but that’s about it right now – she needs the personality in order to really make a big move to prove she’s a contender. Ingo’s also a bit of a question mark right now – nice guy, decent dancer, but not as explosive as many of those at the top of the pack…can’t tell if this is pretty much all we’re going to get out of him, or if he’s holding back and waiting for the right moment to make his move.
Heidi: Yeah, I pretty much agree with Courtney, although I’m not sure that it matters that Andy, Victor and DL are all 100/1 – I would wager (heh) that their life on the show is HEAVILY dependent on the judges scores in any given week. For example, they give Andy a crap score compared to Victor and DL – Andy goes home. They give Victor a crap score relative to Andy and DL – Victor goes home. We’ve seen the happen before where there aren’t enough votes to reduce the judges scores impact. The question is how Ingo and Sean still play into that equation – we’ll see this week. 🙂 I guess I think they have the order just about right, although I think the top three might not be in that exact order. I think the ONLY reason that Aly is in 4th place at this point is because of the weakness of Sean and Ingo. I also agree with Courtney that they might be making her into something. But I think that something might be just a prop to keep Zendaya from supposedly running away with it. I don’t think they care about Aly one way or the other, but I think they are likely heavily invested in Zendaya. The next Selena Gomez?? Or bigger.
Awww, don’t you just love Ingo in an “Indiana Jones” hat? Sorry, got side tracked. Here is Ingo and Kym on Access Hollywood today talking about their sexy and classy dance coming up….
Zenday has written a new blog for Access Hollywood. She writes about last week’s dance. She had a lot of fun, but, was disappointed in Len’s comments because she thought her 20 second solo should reflect who she is, not necessarily the style of dance (true!). Below she writes of how thankful she is for her fans and for Val….
I really want to thank my fans this week too. They are so amazing!!I sit down every night and read over my mentions in twitter and comments on other social media and I am just so in awe of the positive energy they give me!! I am one lucky girl!!
I want to talk about Val. He SO deserved the recognition to dance on Tuesday night because he is AWESOME.
Even though he didn’t want to be singled out, I am so proud he is my partner in this! He is like a big brother to me, but also such a strong mentor and teacher. He is fiercely competitive and I love that about him.
We watch videos of our dance over and over and focus on all the details to make it better and better. His choreography is simply on point! Did you notice that every week the judges compliment him for that because he is GENIUS?!!
I agree. Val is an excellent choreographer and one of the best on this show right now. Do you agree? More at Access Hollywood.
UPDATE: Also, here is Val and Zendaya on Access Hollywood today….
Just a quick update!! Music artist Kerli is set to perform for the Results show next week on Dancing With The Stars. Below is a tweet from Island records!!

Aly Raisman was a guest on KTLA to talk about the differences between training for the Olympics and training for Dancing With The Stars. This week, she and Mark Ballas have a Samba and she says it’s so different. In her Olympic training, she was taught not to show emotion and for dancing it’s the total opposite. For the Samba, she has to really let loose and treat it like a party. It’s full of bouncing and bending….something she is not use to doing. Lots more below including some shots of she and Mark rehearsing…. Read more..
