Vote for the Winner of Dancing with the Stars Season 16

Each season the Pure DWTS community has done a pretty good job predicting the winners of Dancing with the Stars. I expect that Dancing with the Stars Season 16 won’t be any different. Although, it has been an interesting season where multiple fan bases think that the producers have it in for their favorites. Usually there’s only one fan base that feels slighted, but this year I’ve heard it from a number of different fans for each couple. So, it should be an exciting finish.

Now without further ado, go ahead and vote for who will be the Dancing with the Stars Season 16 winner:

I’ll close comments on this post so we don’t have multiple conversations on who’s going to win, but feel free to go over to Court’s DWTS Finale Power Rankings to leave a comment on who you think will win.

Is DWTS Rigged?

If you could only see the emails I get. Everything from the reasonable to the unreasonable. Most of the time when they get to the point of emailing me, they’re saying they’re going to stop watching the show. Although, this year, more than any, I’ve had people calling the show rigged. So, I thought I’d put up a poll and see what Pure DWTS readers think. Is DWTS rigged? Vote below and then leave your thoughts in the comments.

My personal opinion is that the show isn’t rigged. The show is produced and they do have their favorites. They want good ratings and some pros and stars bring them better ratings. However, DWTS is considered a game show and the rules for games shows are rough, so I’d be really surprised if they were really rigging the show.

Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments.
