PureDWTS Season 24 Court Rants: I Don’t Care How “Rabid” Your Fanbase Is, You Won’t Win Without the General Audience Vote!

For the regulars, you probably have witnessed what prompted this rant ๐Ÿ˜› For the non-regulars, bear with me: it seems like every season, there is at least one fanbase that just bugs the ever-loving sh*t out of me – and it’s usually because said fanbase decides to obnoxiously remind the entire online DWTS fandom how awesome their favorite is, and how they’re going to win, and how they’re sooooo much better than other contestants, and how much harder they’re gonna vote than all the other fans, how rabid & supportive the fanbase is, etc.ย  Basically – if they can think of something to boast about, they will.ย  Loudly, frequently, and obnoxiously…and the rest of the fans just have to grit their teeth and bear it until the season ends or that particular contestant gets eliminated.

But here’s the funny part: for all the boasting these fanbases do, very seldom do their contestants actually win DWTS.ย  Why? To quote one of my Twitter followers, “If you have to tell us how big it is…it’s probably not that big.” ๐Ÿ˜‰ But seriously, though – there’s a bit more to it than that.ย  You have to take viewing demographics into account, and whether or not that fanbase aligns well with the main viewing demographic; you also have to consider if there’s another contestant on a particular season who perhaps aligns better with the main viewing demographic.ย  The bottom line is this:

You cannot win DWTS if you don’t have the main viewing demographic of the show on your side.

And right now, I can hear the defiant protests of hoards of Harmonizers ๐Ÿ˜› Go ahead – you guys can tell us all till you’re blue in the face how “rabid” you are, how “organized” you are, how “passionate & committed” you are.ย  It comes across as a tad insecure, but go ahead.ย  But I’m gonna warn you right now, unless Normani can get demographics on her side (or the show tries to pull off a pimping of never-before-seen proportions), I can almost guarantee she will not win. Let me explain why, using historical data from the show…

Normani Kordei Blogs DWTS Week 1 for Hollywood Life

Normani writes about week 1, her nerves and how they are in Okinawa, Japan this week for tour. I do like how she owns her dance experience and all the expectations and responsibility that comes with it. I do wish she would realize that she only did half a quickstep and perhaps tell her partner to get it together – but we can’t have everything. Visit Hollywood Life to read the rest of her blog.

Going into this first week I was definitely, and obviously, very nervous. There is a lot of expectation for me as a former dancer, and someone with dance experience, but with more expectation comes more responsibility. That really got me through this week. I always try to take everything Val [Chmerkovskiy] says into consideration. He is always giving me the best advice and critiques, and I try to listen to him a lot and take what he says and show it in our routine. He and I are out on the floor together, and I know that we are in this competition as a team, so listening to him this week has been so important for me.

The quick step was our first dance but also one of the hardest dances there is, so I am blessed that I got through it with Valโ€™s guidance. It took me a bit to recognize that he is with me every step of the way; when we go out on floor we are out there together. So we took on the quick step together and I think we crushed it. I blacked out in the best way possible once I was out on the floor. I didnโ€™t want the audience, or the cameras, or the judges to distract me from what I knew we could do. I just focused in on the glitter, and the lights, and the music and gave it my all.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)
