New DWTS Season 19 Week 4 Las Vegas Odds: What do you think?

The odds makers at Sports Bovada have made their new predictions. It’s amazing how tight they are this season for the top seven. Have we ever had that many contestants so close like that? Note too how Tommy Chung just entered this top group as well and rightfully so in my opinion. *sigh in remembering his “Scent Of A Woman” dance. That dance is going down as one of my all time favorites! Though note how Antonio Sabato Jr. has fallen from last weeks odds. The odds makers are still putting Betsey Johnson and Michael Waltrip at the very bottom too. So, what do you think? Are the odds makers right this time? I think Bethany Mota should be in the top spot. I also think Sadie Robertson should have better odds. They should atleast have her in 4th position? Let’s see what Heidi and Courtney think. Be sure to let us know what you think too.

Janel Parrish 2/1
Bethany Mota 9/4
Alfonso Ribeiro 4/1
Lea Thompson 7/1
Sadie Robertson 10/1
Tommy Chong 12/1
Jonathan Bennett 14/1
Antonio Sabato Jr. 33/1
Betsey Johnson 66/1
Michael Waltrip 200/1

Last week’s Odds:

Alfonso Ribeiro 5/2
Lea Thompson 11/4
Janel Parrish 3/1
Bethany Mota 5/1
Sadie Robertson 7/1
Antonio Sabato Jr. 20/1
Jonathan Bennett 20/1
Randy Couture 33/1
Tommy Chong 50/1
Betsey Johnson 100/1
Michael Waltrip 200/1

Courtney: One perfect score does not a champion make, oddsmakers – I know you’re just totally sold on Janel now, but I still think Alfonso is *almost* a sure thing (provided that TPTB resist the urge to do too much tinkering, which I can’t guarantee).  I’d put money on it that he’s back at the top of the odds next week, because I have a feeling he’s going to SLAY this jazz.  And I think Sadie’s got more staying power than Lea at this point.  As for the tail end of the of odds – ehhh, I think Mike has better odds than both Betsey & Antonio, simply because he’s charming.  I think Jonathan is in the right place – I’m becoming a bit dubious about how many votes he’s getting.

Heidi: I think the top 6 is right, just in the totally wrong order. 🙂  These odds makers blow with the wind (aka scores) with no concept of the votes – or in the history of this show.  I think this season still belongs to Alfonso, and I would wager that Bethany fares better than Janel – although I don’t know if she’ll be in second place.  I would bet, right now, that Lea takes 6th place, Janel 5th, Tommy 4th, Sadie and Bethany will be 2nd and 3rd – just not sure in which order – and Alfonso in the top spot.  BUT, I may change my mind depending on what they do to Alfonso this week. The man is easily the best dancer on the show, but sometimes, they try to keep the best dancers down to suit some agenda. Last season it was Charlie that was dogged so that Meryl could succeed. What I can’t see is why they need for Janel or Bethany to succeed over Alfonso – what is the motivation there??  Is it all about the kids?? Could be. And why the f@*k can’t they just score them appropriately?? I watched Janel’s dance again and it’s was lots of flash, but really not all that much substance. Why are they giving out a 40 to ANYONE in week 3, including Bethany (although they had little choice after giving Janel one), while giving the best dancer (Alfonso) and 8 point disadvantage?? So, one of two things will happen: they will either continue to pan Alfonso (at which point I change my thoughts on the final 4 rankings) or we will see a big reversal for DRAMA – that is, Bethany and Janel take a tumble, while Sadie and Alfonso rise to the top.

DWTS19 Week 4 Peta Murgatroyd And Tommy Chong Rehearsal Interview

This is a fascinating Access Hollywood rehearsal interview with Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd. We not only get to see them in action practicing for their new “Jail House Rock” dance, you can listen to Tommy tell on his connection to “Wolf Of Wallstreet”. Go Tommy and Peta!! Here’s to Monday night!

ETA: You can read a new Tommy Chong at TV Guide. He talks of what it’s like working with Peta so far, their tango, their new dance, and more. Be sure to read the full interview at the link. He’s a “hidden gem” for sure like Sandy commented.

What are you and Peta working on for this week?
Chong: The jive! [The theme is] “Most Memorable Year.” My most memorable year was the year I spent in jail, so we’re doing “Jailhouse Rock” — er, Jive. As soon as I finish this interview I’m on my way to rehearsal.

Are you nervous about doing the jive for the first time?
Chong: No, I’m not nervous at all. I don’t get nervous. I wish I did. Even the last dance we did, I never got it right until the time I had to get it right, and I think everybody else but me was nervous. I wasn’t nervous because I knew, I’ll pull it off eventually. … I’ve been onstage all my life, so it’s really hard to even fake nervousness.

You seem to be one of the audience favorites this season. Are you surprised by all the support you’ve gotten?
Chong: Not so much surprised as grateful. I’m not taking anything for granted. I’m not taking the fan support for granted. I think the minute you do that, then you lose. The minute you go in there thinking that, oh, you’ve got it in the bag, that’s when it’s not in the bag. So, every time I hear people tell me, you know, I’m supporting, I thank them. … Because I know the only way I can win is with the fan support. I can’t win just based on my good looks and talent.
