Dancing With The Stars Odds to Win DWTS
Ray Lewis +400
Lauren Alaina +700
Ally Brooke +600
Karamo Brown +550
Kel Mitchell +600
Kate Flannery +1400
Hannah Brown +1000

Dancing With The Stars Sean Spicer to Say Trump in Episode 1 DWT
Yes +1000
No -2500

Dancing With The Stars Who Will be Eliminated 1st
Ray Lewis +150
Lamar Odom -200

Vogue: I don’t think Ray, Lamar, or Sean will be leaving on night one or anytime soon. We will see? I’m leaning towards Kate or Mary leaving first. Here’s a BIG REASON (Sean Spicer’s Casting Explained? Red States Love ‘Dancing With the Stars’) why I don’t think Sean is going anywhere anytime soon.

Heidi: It’s real easy to stick around for a long time when no one is watching or voting EXCEPT the red state folks. Just sayin. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’ll be voting very hard for anyone without the initials SS. Coincidence? If that person is anywhere near the finale, this show is done for, totally.

Court: Off the bat, I think they’re seriously overestimating Ray’s ability to win this thing (both based on dance skill potential and popularity) and underestimating both Hannah & Kel’s. If there’s three contestants I think are going to excel regardless of which partner they get, it’s Hannah, Karamo, & Kel – they’ve got Karamo about right, but the other two need to be higher.  Van Der Beek may be able to stick around based on popularity, but a natural dancer he is not – ditto for Ally, although I think her time in Fifth Harmony gives her a small leg up. Lamar’s a bit of a wild card for me – I think he could actually be decent, if his partner is able to pull him out of whatever funk he was in at the cast announcement…and I think that could be an uphill battle. Not even gonna weigh in on He Who Shall Not Be Named…

PureDWTS: Sean Spicer Reacts To Tom Bergeron’s Tweet, Dances Too!

We touched a little on Tom Bergeron’s tweet yesterday in a previous post for how the Dancing With The Stars host felt that the show shouldn’t be casting political figures to keep the show “joyfull”, etc.. Well, this morning, Sean Spicer was interviewed on Fox (watch it below). He says he understands and respects Tom’s opinion. Sean says he plans to leave politics aside and hopes at the end of the season, Tom and others will feel differently that Sean and the whole cast (and it’s diversity) helps bring people together by dancing together. I hope for this too. I think Sean sounds like a good guy and I like his approach. I hope people will give him a chance. Sean dances a little at the end of this interview too (can we have Ainsley on the show next? I love her). Really cute….

Val Chmerkovskiy Talks On The New Season Of Dancing With The Stars And More

Val Chmerkovskiy talked with Entertainment Tonight about the new season of Dancing With The Stars. They are hoping to really push the boundaries again. Lots more below….

“Honestly, I’m really excited. I’m excited to contribute,” he continued. “This is season 28. We really kind of push the boundaries every season. This is the first year where we haven’t had a spring season, so I feel like enough anticipation is there, the excitement is there. Me, personally, I’m ready to go and dance and teach and do my thing.”

When the show returns next month, fans will be introduced to “really fun format changes,” according to ABC entertainment president Karey Burke, who hinted at the tweaks earlier this month during the Television Critics Association summer press tour. Speaking with ET, Chmerkovskiy said he hopes that means “moving forward to the things that made the show special,” especially for the fans who have been tuning in to the dance competition show since the beginning.

“I think there’s so many shows out there that have pushed the limit on technology and all of that stuff. I think people are much more interested in real good, feel-good stories,” he continued. “Not everything has to be a tearjerker. Some things can just be fun. I think what made Dancing With the Stars the number one show for so long, is that we take our craft seriously, we take our relationships seriously. It’s a show that has a lot of fun, and it’s kind of an escape for all of these people all across this country. Monday nights can be brutal, man! They just wanna go home, sit with their families and watch something that isn’t hijacked by politics. Just feel-good television that’s good for the entire family.”

ABC Entertainment President, Karey Burke, Teases On The New Season Of Dancing With The Stars

Well, we aren’t really learning anything new from other teasers recently, but, exec from ABC, Karey Burke, talked a little on the changes coming to the new season of Dancing With The Stars which sound good. From TV Line….

Speaking with TVLine last week at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour, Burke offered new insight into the retooled DWTS, which returns Monday, Sept. 16 at 8/7c. For starters, the exec characterized the alterations as “format tweaks” vs. format changes,” adding, “It’s about [shifting] the focus of the show to really focus on it being a celebration of dance, and also focusing on the celebrities.”

By “leaning into its strengths,” Burke believes DWTS will once again cement its position as “the most entertaining dance show on television.”

Meanwhile, Burke remained mum on Season 28’s celeb cast, but promised the lineup is “really good.”
