DWTS Season 12 Finals – The Las Vegas Odds Before Showtime

It’s the “quiet before the Dancing With The Stars storm”. Get ready as these last three dancing couples are not going out without a bang. That is for sure. So, what do the odds makers in Las Vegas think? Nothing new really. Once again, they have Hines in a pretty solid first position. Chelsea is not too far away in second with Kirstie just a point behind. I truly think this is anyone’s ball game and anything can happen. Let’s throw the dice and let this final contest begin. 🙂

1. Hines Ward 1/2

2. Chelsea Kane 3/1

3. Kirstie Alley 4/1

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together.

DWTS Season 12, The Finale – Who’s Dancing What??

Ahhh…the final week. Who will win? Who won Design a Dance? Does anyone still care?? These are the questions going into the last week of the season. Do I care? Oh, I guess. 🙂 Not as much as in previous seasons, but sure.

I don’t think I need to tell our regular readers this, but I will anyway. If there is someone you want to win, YOU HAVE TO VOTE FOR THEM. A LOT. If there is someone you DON’T want to win, you have to vote for someone else. That’s how this show works. You don’t get to vote someone off the island. 🙂 Here’s our dances:

Chelsea and Mark – Samba/Freestyle/????
Voting Number: 1.800.VOTE4.01

Kirstie and Maks – Samba/Freestyle/Cha Cha
Voting Number: 1.800.VOTE4.11

Hines and Kym – Quickstep/Freestyle/Samba
Voting Number: 1.800.VOTE4.03

I haven’t seen anything that tells what Chelsea’s third dance is, although I feel like I saw it in the comments and I just don’t remember it.

Anyway, I have to say that I am SICK to death of Samba and Cha Cha, especially the latter. What in the HELL??? Seriously?? That said, round one certainly seems stacked in Chelsea’s favor. What happened to each couple doing a dance that they didn’t do well on the first time around?? You know – the redemption dance?? Last season they gave Jennifer the Paso Doble because their first one was so bad during Rock Week. I wonder if they change this dance according to who the finalists are. Because once upon a time, they did let the couples pick their favorite dances – I remember Brooke and Derek re-did their V. Waltz to Daughters. Hines and the Quickstep?? He got a dance he didn’t score high on the first time. Great.

Freestyle will likely be between Chelsea and Hines, since both Mark and Kym can choreograph good ones while Maks’ record isn’t so solid. That said, Mark has been…different…this season. Will he go too far and choreograph something that Len won’t like?? Or will Len simply cave?? Or will Mark go back to his roots? Should be interesting, to say the least. I’m actually rooting for Maks to put together a killer freestyle – surely he’s due one. Kym? I think their Argentine Tango last Monday showed that you don’t need crazy tricks to produce an excellent dance. As for their injuries – they can both do it. Derek managed a great freestyle with Jennifer last season, and we all know her physical limitations.

Round 3?? This is the one I’m most curious about. Will the judges straight up score it? Will they weight it to their favorite, whoever that might be? Or will they let the audience decide. Regardless, unless the couples go into the last dance at a big deficit, this last dance shouldn’t sway it. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Afterall, if you’re just fine with giving a free 15 points to one couple, then you aren’t likely to hesitate to make sure there is a solid 15 point difference between 1st and 2nd place, whether it is warranted or not.

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. :-)
