DWTS Season 15 Las Vegas Odds Going Into Week 7: What Do You Think?

Our apologies for being a little late with the Las Vegas Odds! For some reason, all the betting sites have been later than the norm posting them this week. Is this a sign the odds makers are overly undecided? 8O I don’t know. None the less, below are Sports Bovada’s odds leading up to Week 7 of Dancing With The Stars. Note how the placements are the same, but, the numbers are tighter in some cases and/or the same or higher in others.

Shawn Johnson 10/11
Emmitt Smith 13/4
Gilles Marini 7/2
Apolo Anton Ono 9/1
Kelly Monaco 10/1
Melissa Rycroft 40/1
Kirstie Alley 66/1

Last week’s Las Vegas Odds going into Week 5 to compare:

Shawn Johnson 1/1
Emmitt Smith 7/2
Gilles Marini 9/2
Apolo Anton Ono 6/1
Kelly Monaco 10/1
Melissa Rycroft 33/1
Sabrina Bryan 50/1
Kirstie Alley 75/1

In my opinion, Apolo should be in second place (or even first?) and Emmitt in third. I don’t think Gilles is going to make the top three like many think. I mean…is his fan base really that big? My Dad (an avid fan to the show for about 4 or 5 years now) keeps asking me who Gilles, Melissa, and Kelly are and that to me is a little telling being he kept asking me who Sabrina was too and the next thing we know and regardless of scores and ability to dance, Sabrina is a goner. I also still think it’s a mistake to underestimate Kirstie in this competition. I wouldn’t be surprised to see her make it to atleast 4th place….that is, if she can still make some strong showings on the dance floor as she has the last couple of weeks.

Lets get Miss Heidi and Court’s thoughts on the new odds and be sure to let us know what you think too in comments….

Heidi: I just don’t get the Emmitt thing. I mean, he’s faded into the woodwork on this this show.  Are they basing their odds on how well football players have done in the past?? I agree with Vogue – I really think Apolo should be up at the top with Shawn. Of course, it’s my bias talking when I say I really want Gilles to be the next “shocking” elimination. :-) As for Shawn – she’s certainly capable of winning it, but I think it depends on if Len keeps it up with his games.  He did it with Nicole and it was very obvious as well – but I don’t think that Shawn can afford that sort of game playing in an all star season AND when they throw so many dances into one elimination, reducing the spread significantly.  This week is week 7. If history holds true, it’s week 8 when Len finally gives it up. I think he should give it up a bit earlier than normal, but the urge to make it a horse race is overwhelming.  Which brings us to Kirstie. Clearly the odds makers aren’t going on a week to week scoring basis because Kirstie is still in the bottom and Kelly is up there in 5th place. I don’t know – I think that (unfortunately)  the odds dudes have the bottom three correct, but I ‘m not sure that’s the order they should be in. I guess we’ll see.

Courtney: The Emmitt thing blows my mind – I get it, the guy is charming, but he’s also just been a relatively ho-hum dancer this season, who’s been ending up at the middle-to-lower end of the scoreboard pretty consistently.  He hasn’t done anything that has shown me that he’s suddenly a contender for the MBT.  And while the NFL fanbase is considerable, I don’t see it overtaking the Olympian fanbase.  And I’m not sure why Apolo’s odds dropped and Gilles’ rose, in a week where Apolo got a perfect score (and lavish praise from the judges) and Gilles performed a bizarre, androgynous dance that left the judges kind of puzzled.  Unless the oddsmakers are playing into the same fallacy that so many viewers seem to be playing into: that “in jeopardy” and “in the bottom 2″ mean the same thing.  Couldn’t be further from the truth – for all we know, Apolo could have been the highest vote-getter last week, but hey, somebody’s got to be in jeopardy.  As for those hanging out at the bottom – I don’t think Kirstie’s going to get to the finale, or even the semifinals.  Sorry kids – but I don’t see her faring well in fusion dance, and I’m anticipating she’ll be first out in the marathon dance; as for next week - she’s likely going to end up with one of the waltzes (if it’s Viennese, she’s a goner, methinks) and the trio dance…and I’m not sure those dances really favor her, either.  Plus she’s the only contestant left that we know for sure has been in the bottom 2.  I think she’s probably going to be part of the week 8 double elim – and it’s going to be a toss-up on who joins her there.  Maybe Melissa, maybe Kelly, hopefully Gilles.  Lord knows how anyone else is faring in the votes.

DWTS Kirstie Alley On A “Convoy” Mission To Help Hurricane Victims, Interviews, And More

As some of you have commented and have noticed yesterday at twitter, Dancing With The Stars contender Kirstie Alley, went full out trying to get as many items as she could to help those who are suffering from the impact of Hurricane Sandy on the east coast. She’s asked that people bring whatever they can from blankets, socks, underwear, snack foods, canned goods, baby food, teddy bears, and more down to her Organic Liaison store at 1864 N Vermont in Los Feliz, California 90027. The mission has been such a success that she tweeted the first semi load of supplies left Friday and will reach New Jersey today (Saturday) sometime. A second truck is planned to reach Staten Island, New York on Wednesday! John and Kelly Travolta along with Dancing With The Stars partner Maks Chmerkovskiy took part in the relief mission as well according to this tweet by Kirstie….


Trucks preparing to roll! John & Kelly Travolta matching me for Johns home state New Jersey!! @ Found 150 sweaters & blankets !!!

Tony Dovolani helped too as you can see in the picture above provided above by @DDubsDame at twitter. As Kirstie tweeted, “people are amazing!!!!! never under estimate what just a few people can achieve!!! it’s awesome” and isn’t that the truth?!!

In other things Kirstie Alley, she was interviewed on 20/20. It was scheduled to air last night on ABC. However, due to a hurricane special, I’m not sure they featured her interview? Can anyone confirm? You can read for a little of what took place with the interview at On The Red Carpet. She promotes her new book, “The Art Of Men”. Another topic Kirstie talked about was how John Travolta was the “love of her life”. Here she is in a teaser at E News….

Also, stay tuned as Kirstie is scheduled to be on the Jimmy Kimmell show this upcoming Thursday night!!

ETA1: According to fan @cherylldob at twitter, the 20/20 interview with Kirstie will air next Friday, November 9th. Thanks Cheryl!! ;)

ETA2: Below is a new interview with Maks that took place last week with On The Red Carpet. He talks of how Dancing With The Stars has stepped up their game this season. He got a note from TPTB for how well he and Kirstie are doing and putting smiles on faces. He loved their Gangnam style dance too. More below. There is more to this interview in more video segments HERE. Note too how Maks will be making a “Latin dancer” movie in MAY! Read more..

ABC Releases Voting, Scoring, Entertainment Details For Monday Night’s Edition Of Dancing With The Stars

ABC MediaNet has released more details for Dancing With Th Stars for Monday’s nights dances, scoring, voting, and entertainment. Read carefully below for how the night will go down. More at the link. Also, if you want to see some song spoilers and watch “who’s dancing what and when”, be sure to watch this post as well.

“Episode 1507″ -During this week’s two-hour performance show on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 5 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), the seven remaining couples will perform a fusion dance that has was chosen by their competitors on last week’s show. The show’s opening number, choreographed by Henry Byalikov, will feature The Troupe and four pros from the season. Later in the night, after the couples’ individual rounds, they will all take the dance floor for a swing dance marathon with the chance to add up to 10 extra points to their scores for the night. The couple in first place will get 10 points, the couple in second place will get 9 points, the couple in third place will get 8 points, the couple in fourth place will get 7 points, the couple in fifth place will get 6 points, the couple in sixth place will get 5 points and the seventh place couple will get 4 points.

Monday night’s show also includes the season’s second “AT&T Spotlight Performance,” featuring some of the Utah’s best young dancers. The ten featured dancers are between the ages of 15-18 and represent the future of ballroom dancing. Pro dancer Mark Ballas, who teaches in Utah during every off season, is choreographing this incredible piece to the hit song, “She Wolf,” by David Guetta featuring Sia. Pro dancer Chelsie Hightower, who is from Utah, will also perform in the piece. The performance promises powerful choreography, a fusion of ballroom, hip-hop and contemporary dancing – and a look at what the future has in store!

Who’s ready? Bring this show on! :D

ETA: Heidi here! Derek tweeted this picture of Derek, Mark and Chelsie with the Utah dancers.  Poor widdle Derek. :-) At least he still  has his sense of humor. :-)

DWTS All Stars, Week 7 – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

Week 7 – another crazy week. Two dances, three dances, no elimination…what will they change next. Really, the changing of the game as we go has GOT to stop. It doesn’t really feel fair. I know, this show is never fair I should stop hoping for that. But…I am eternally optimistic, believe it or not. :-) I don’t know why Apolo is talking about three dances. No clue. And the Swing Marathon was added at the last minute to make up for no live elimination on Monday night. I don’t know what the story is there – would love to hear the real one because the one Tom gave was totally bogus. He got all shifty eyed AND the story didn’t make any sense.

It just occurred to me that Apolo could be talking about three dances because he’s looking at the fusion dance as TWO dances…which is really NOT a good sign. At all. It’s supposed to be *fusion*…not Cha Cha followed by Paso or whatever. And that leads me to realize another way some couples could/should get marked down, but probably won’t.

ETA1: Gilles just can’t wait to share, can he?? He must know we all wait with baited breath. :::rolls eyes:::

ETA2: Courtney tells me that she thinks Emmitt is the most screwed with his song. From the sound of it, his pro also rolls her eyes at fusion.

ETA3: Please take note of the footnote at the bottom. We’re not sure about the group dance song.

ETA4: Looks like Mark may well be dancing for Derek tomorrow, if Mark’s rather gloating tweet to a Derek fan is any indication. And Derek got his MRI back and the doc asked him if he’d been in numerous car accidents. Um, thanks Derek, I really didn’t need to hear that. :-) In other news, Emmitt is dancing second and Kelly has a song that rings no bells for me.

ETA5: I take it back, I do know Kelly’s song, now that I listen to it. I just didn’t recognize the artist’s name.

ETA6: I see Gilles is back in the latter half of the show. Too bad for him it’s right before the Marathon. Heh. Called Apolo’s dance order right before she posted it. Predictable, I guess.

Dancing With The Stars Make-Up Releases Behind The Scenes Photos For Season 15 Week 6

What a mean team of cow hands we have here, hmm? :D Dancing With The Stars Make-up has released some ‘behind the scenes’ shots of the cast from this past week. Above is Henry Byalikov, Sonny Peterson, Maksim and Val Chmerkovskiy, Emmitt Smith, and Tony Dovolani. You can see loads of more pics here of the rest of the cast. You can also read how they did some of the make-up on the girls which is always fascinating if you love make-up and the art of it. My only complaint, why don’t they ever have pictures of DEREK HOUGH ? :?

DWTS Season 15, Week 6 – A Dancing by the Numbers Retrospective on Sabrina Bryan

So, what happened to Sabrina is pretty easy to explain. Everyone covered the spread.  Period. She was at the top of the leaderboard and didn’t need to get MORE votes than anyone else, she just needed to get enough votes to prevent them from catching up to her.

The table below shows Sabrina versus each of the other dancers, the percentage between them and then the number of votes per million votes cast that that individual needs to bypass Sabrina and stay safe.

Ultimately, every single dancer got at least one more than that number of votes per million votes cast than Sabrina and Sabrina was, therefore, eliminated.  Looking at the numbers, above, you can see that it wouldn’t be really hard for anyone other than Kelly to get the votes.  Those are small damn numbers. And if Sabrina isn’t getting many votes, just how hard is it for Kelly? Spare me the “Power of the soap fan” spiel. That’s nuts – if ya’ll were that powerful Soap’s audiences wouldn’t be shrinking and they wouldn’t be getting cancelled left and right. And Kelly wasn’t the only person who beat Sabrina – EVERYONE did. Which means she just wasn’t getting the votes.  This says nothing, really, about Kelly and everything about Sabrina. Read more..

Dancing With The Stars To Participate In Disney/ABC “DAY OF GIVING” To Help Hurricane Sandy Victims

This is really cool!! In an official announcement made today, Disney/ABC Television has announced plans to dedicate this coming Monday, November 5th, as a “DAY OF GIVING” across their news, daytime, syndication, primetime, and late night programming. “Good Morning America,” “LIVE with Kelly and Michael,” “The View,” “The Chew,” “Katie,” “Dancing With The Stars,” “World News with Diane Sawyer,” ABC Owned Stations & Local ABC Affiliates, “Nightline” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” will all participate. The comprehensive response follows the Walt Disney Company’s $2 Million donation for relief and rebuilding efforts to help those impacted by Hurricane Sandy. You can read the official announcement at ABC News. Below are details for how each show (including Dancing With The Stars) is scheduled to help in encouraging viewers to donate. Please All, do what you can to help!!! Here is a direct link to the American Red Cross. Even if it’s the smallest amount, you can make a difference and help to comfort someone!!!

“Good Morning America” will start the “Day of Giving” by dedicating the entire 8:00 a.m. hour to raising money for Sandy Relief efforts. ABC News anchors, reporters and employees will band together to encourage people to donate to the American Red Cross.

The torch will pass to “LIVE with Kelly and Michael,” where the show will integrate “Day of Giving” messaging into their highly anticipated Halloween episode (which was moved due to the impact of the storm).

The ladies of “The View” will discuss the “Day of Giving” and encourage their audience to donate to the American Red Cross relief efforts, and “The Chew” will do the same.

“Katie,” which designated the entire hour on Wednesday, October 31 to Hurricane Sandy, will take up the mantle of the “Day of Giving” and engage her viewers in these relief efforts as well.

The ABC Owned Stations and local ABC affiliates will integrate “Day of Giving” messaging into their local news throughout the day, calling on their local communities to help those impacted by the storm.

“World News with Diane Sawyer” will participate with messaging around “Day of Giving” and the continuing impact of the storm.

“Dancing With The Stars” is planning to personalize sections of the live show Monday night with “Day of Giving” messaging.

“Nightline” will devote time to the “Day of Giving” and the impact of Hurricane Sandy, and “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” which has been airing from Brooklyn all this week and encouraging viewers to give to the Red Cross to help rebuild that impacted areas, will end the “Day of Giving” on Monday with special messaging and calls to action for his viewers.

DWTS 15 – What’s Left to Dance?

So obviously, this season is beyond wacky – double eliminations, no eliminations, new dance styles, guest judges, the whole shebang.  And there have been quite a few questions about what dances are being done each week…while I don’t pretend to have a super-clear picture of how the rest of the season is going to unfold, I do have a little bit of info, and I think the bulk of our readers are smart enough to deduce a lot of things :-) So here’s my best (educated) guess at how the rest of the season will unfold – and keep in mind that, like other things this season, some of the stuff in this post has the potential to change.  The double elim’s were scheduled for weeks 4 & 6, and then were moved to weeks 3 & 8 without explanation.  It’s kind of a crap shoot, kids.

First things first: the question I’ve been seeing the most is “Will the couples be able to get through all of the 10 regular ballroom & Latin dances by the finale?” While I can’t say for sure, in all likelihood I doubt they will, given how many other extraneous dances they seem to be trying to fit into the schedule – unless they try and double or even triple up dances in some weeks, which I think is just asking for trouble.   So it’s entirely possible that you may not see Gilles doing a quickstep, or Shawn doing a samba, or Apolo doing a tango, etc. Sorry kids – don’t shoot the messenger.  So every couple has 5 regular dances still remaining - here they are, in no particular order.

ETA1: That’ll teach me not to look more carefully before hitting “post” ;-) I see now that Shawn & Derek ALSO have a fusion dance comprised of 2 dances they have yet to do, just like Gilles & Peta…while everyone else has done one of the dances in their fusion this season.  If I didn’t know any better, I’d say there was a bit of pre-planning in who picked what…but I can’t imagine any way they could do that, judging from how sloppy & disorganized the selection process seemed to be.  Guess it’s all just a coincidence. 

ETA2: Since this seems to be just too difficult for some to process on their own, let me spell this out loud and clear: THERE ARE TWO DANCES NEXT WEEK.  TWOOOOO.  NOT THREE.  I know you saw Apolo’s tweet about 3 dances – the dude is referring to the fusion dance (which is ONE DANCE) as two dances, since it is two dances mashed together into one routine.  Then there is the swing marathon.  1 fusion dance + 1 marathon dance = 2 dances.  I can assure you, there is not some 3rd “secret dance” that the powers that be are going to spring on us at the last minute. Got it? Good, cause I’m done spoon feeding information to anyone that can’t be bothered to read this post.

ETA3: Small update – there will be one more dance this season (in week 9) that is a “new” style that the couples will pick for one another.  No, I don’t have the list.  Still not a peep about the Argentine tango – so at this point, I’m assuming we aren’t going to see it. 

ETA4: Looks like they scrapped the idea of having celebs as the 3rd member of the trio dances, and we’re back to using pros (and troupe members) - phew! Also looks like salsa has been thrown into the mix as a possible trio dance, and it’s been confirmed: back-to-back double elims in weeks 8 AND 9 8-O Start making those extra verified accounts, kids…

Gilles & Peta – remaining dances: samba, paso doble, waltz, quickstep, Viennese waltz

Ruh-roh! Gilles only has 2 “sexy” dances left for him to get overscored on, based solely on his sex appeal.  Then he’s got three of the pretty staunch ballroom dances to contend with – any bets on which of the 3 (or more) that he miraculously won’t get to this season? I could see him somehow dodging the waltz, since that seems to be a dance that has to be amazing in order for a couples to get votes. If there’s any dance I’d say Peta might struggle with choreographing, it’s the quickstep – for the simple reason that she’s only choreographed one so far on the show (for Donald) and I recall thinking it was a tad weak.

Shawn & Derek – remaining dances: samba, paso doble, waltz, tango, Viennese waltz

I think the fact that these two still have paso doble left bodes well for them – it’s a dance for which Derek almost always comes up with stellar choreography.  Viennese waltz will probably be a good one as well.  I do worry about the samba a bit, though, because it’s a dance that Derek has said is one of his least favorite to choreograph, and if I recall, it was one that Shawn got mixed reviews for on her original season.  I wonder if it would benefit them to use it as their trio dance.

Dancing With The Stars Season 15 Week 6 Post Elimination Interviews

Let’s get right to the post elimination interviews. Some of the couples opted not to get interviewed as you will soon see, but, here is what we have from On The Red Carpet….

Kelly and Val are so relieved they aren’t going home. They were nervous, but, they hope to keep justifying and supporting their fans since they are getting them through every week. They are excited to do the dance fusion and mix it up. They talk of how important the song selection is which they’d rather decide on versus the dance style.

Karina and Apolo talk of the scary elimination last night. They get harder and harder each week, but, they are happy and are on the “night train”. They got over their hurdle last week. They say song selection is important and they’d rather choose the song than deciding on the dance style. They goof around and tease each other at the end (if this isn’t a connection, I don’t know what is? They look very close! VERY CLOSE! :D ).

Gilles praises Sabrina and says she’s the best dancer to ever dance on Dancing With The Stars. Peta says the same and says Sabrina could be on the Troupe she is so good. They are a little nervous to dance and fuse together an Argentine Tango and Samba next week, but, they are excited. They are mixed on deciding on a dance style or a song. Peta stresses how important the song selection is and then Gilles agrees.

Kirstie and Maks are so happy and relieved to be coming back. She talks of how difficult the elimination is. They are all like “gladiators” waiting to get eaten by a lion (so true). As for next week, Kirstie is confused by the fusion and thinks it’s crazy. If it was a perfect world, Maks would pick a Rumba every week for a dance style. If everyone votes, they get to make out with Maks. They talk smack on Gilles. The interviewer has to get them back on topic. Crazy interview and hilarious as always. ADDING: Note how Kirstie mentions doing they are doing a Marathon dance too.

And below are the Access Hollywood interviews. Read more..

SPOILERS!! DWTS Season 15, Week 6 – Who Got the Boot??

Heh. Funny story.  Courtney and I were TOTALLY convinced that the Berge was lying and no one was going home tonight.  We both thought of it and tweeted it at about the same time. The Berge was just acting too funny and there was too much inconsistent stuff being said. His explanation for no elimination next week totally doesn’t fly – makes no sense at all. We were seeing lots of discomfort from him and Brooke both. We were both in denial up until Tommy said someone had the lowest combined total.  I was in denial even after that…forgetting that it wasn’t April Fools.

Guess that was just because Sabrina was getting eliminated this season the same week she was the first time around. Yep, Sabrina has hit the road. Which kinda makes me irritated – I said at the beginning of the season that there was no reason for her to go farther this season than she did originally with Mark  - not in an all star season. But, I took comfort in her high score EVEN THOUGH the spread was not large AT ALL. I bought into the same crap that I get annoyed with some of you for spouting. That is – the spread means zilch if you aren’t getting the votes.  It does NOT mean that Kelly was getting a ton of votes – it could easily mean that Sabrina doesn’t have a fanbase at all, to speak of.  Since this is the second time this has happened to Sabrina, I think that’s the safer bet.

So how did we do?? Well, we all sucked. :-) I could leave it at that and call it a night, but….nah.

Heidi: Predicted Kelly, second choice Kirstie

Courtney: Kelly, Second choice Kirstie

Vogue: Gilles, Emmitt as the second choice

Why the hell couldn’t Vogue have been right. Then most of us on this blog would be happy as little clams.

NOTE: Tom clearly stated that Apolo was “not necessarily the bottom two”.  Which means that he probably wasn’t but isn’t getting the votes they want him to.  I’m going to slap the crap out of the first person who asks if Apolo was the bottom two.
