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
James Van der Beek +450
Mary Wilson +1200
Lamar Odom +2500
Sean Spicer +5000
Christie Brinkley +1200

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 Spicerโ€™s Casting Explained? Red States Love โ€˜Dancing With the Starsโ€™) 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.ย  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…

Check out the ET and Access interviews below as well as People and E Online. Also below is a report on Tom Bergeron and his feelings about Sean Spicer being cast.

Dancing with the Stars Season 28 – Who’s Dancing with Whom??

Well, it seems like we haven’t had to do with is quite some time, but here we are again!! They say we won’t find out the partnerships until the premiere, but I say the paparazzi and fans are much better than that!!

Your celebs are listed below and in our GMA Live Blog. As we find info about partnerships we will update this post. If you see something that implies a partnership, we NEED A LINK or some other evidence. If you want to make a prediction in the comments, by all means do so – but make it clear that it’s a prediction. If you don’t remember who the pros are, you can check out pro watch – I think it’s up to date now – this morning was kinda hectic so if you notice an error just let us know and we’ll fix. Have at it. ๐Ÿ™‚

ETA: I don’t know if this is enough for me, but Jenna is meeting her partner today and had a specific producer with her. According to Linz, that producer was then at the Lakers’ arena. Would ordinarily mean nothing, but word is that all the pros are meeting their partners *tomorrow*, not today. That kinda narrows it down a bit. So, looks like Lamar is a possibility for Jenna. ~Heidi

ETA2: And Kel just followed Witney, according to Courtney….good enough for me! ๐Ÿ™‚

ETA3: And Ray just tells everyone his partner is Cheryl. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Of course, since we’ve found three of the male celebs partners so easily, they could think they’re being clever with a coordinated “leak”.

ETA4: Thanks to Amanda in comments who says that Tom B. said on Sirius this morning that Keo and Daniella will be rotating pros who won’t have partners. No idea what that means. I also love (sarcasm) people who screencap our comments section to spread all over the internet – I’m trying to have a life here and ya’ll are taking time away from that. ๐Ÿ™‚

ETA5: And these partnerships are leaking like a sieve now, kids – producer @thedchannel features Gleb on a shopping spree in her IG story…and you hear him say they’re “in Nashville”. Unless this is all some elaborate ruse to throw us all off the real partnerships, it’s looking like the laziest of the male pros (and one who really shaded his last partner) just got handed someone that’s guaranteed to get him to at least the halfway point of this season, if not further. Anyone else seriously hoping for a Hail Mary tomorrow, with Gronk & Camille announcing they’re the 13th and 14th celebs? Cause this season is tanking FAST… -Court-

ETA4: Val is pictured outdoors at his partner’s place – which has outdoor furniture exactly like Christie Brinkley’s. Scroll to the bottom. Imma go with that until I hear otherwise. We also have lots of other clues to other couples (Lindsay/SS??? Hannah/Alan??) but no concrete proof just yet. ~Heidi

ETA5: A few more pairings based on some deductive reasoning. And Hannah got papped. ๐Ÿ™‚ ~Heidi

ETA6: Court showed me photos that convinced me that Sasha and Ally are paired…but I’m running out the door so maybe she’ll post them when she gets home… ๐Ÿ™‚ **Court adding: Scroll down for the smoking gun heels…and thank you to those of you on Twitter who take the time to put together solid photographic evidence! You’re the real ones ๐Ÿ˜‰

Karamo Brown

Hannah Brown – Alan

Lauren Alaina – Gleb

James Van Der Beek (We are guessing Emma but don’t know for sure)

Ray Lewis – Cheryl

Kate Flannery

Ally Brooke – Sasha

Lamar Odom – Jenna???

Kel Mitchell – Witney

Sean Spicer – Lindsay

Christie Brinkley – Val

Mary Wilson

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. :-)

And The New Cast of DWTS Season 28 Is….GMA Live Blog

Well, today’s the day!! Christie Brinkley? Hannah B? Gronk, Camille, Jessica..? Michael, Magic, Kobe?? Who the hell knows. I’d be willing to bet that close to half the cast we won’t be surprised about. Just say no to Abby Lee Miller. Sweet Jesus.

And, unfortunately, it sounds like a lot of the pros will be back. Sorry – love the women – but I feel the male side needs a good solid shake. ๐Ÿ™‚

Show starts in T-minus 15 minutes…

Of course they had to ask Ginger if she saw her dance partner, Val, upstairs and she of course says yes. Lord, get over it already.

Sounds like 8:18 is the time. Gonna run for the shower. Let me know if there are any stupid hints between now and then.

Uptown is Christie Brinkley, IMO. I don’t have rewind capability…other clues? “Office”?? Rainn Wilson? That could be interesting. Crossing the Creek…James Van Der Beek? Joshua Jackson? Read more..

Dancing with the Stars Season 28 – PRO WATCH!!!

Well, ladies and gentlemen, here we are again.ย  I’ve gotten to be a pretty lazy blogger, thanks to this little hiatus we just suffered through. Actually, I didn’t suffer at all, I just like being dramatic sometimes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Did anyone else notice the wording of the tweet that Courtney posted yesterday about the cast announcement??ย  “Season 28 of DancingABC is here and we’re revealing all the new stars and the new cast live on GMA next Wednesday.” All new stars AND a new cast?? What the hell is that supposed to mean? Now, granted, Courtney and I did spend half an hour texting last night debating whether the GMA tweeter is just an idiot (probably) or if there is something more nefarious about (who the hell knows?).ย  But why else do you tweet about new stars AND a new cast?? What the actual f@#k?

Okay, now that I’ve scared the bejesus out of 50% of our audience, let’s talk about who’s not likely to be back – maybe ever. In any capacity. Julianne Hough, for one. She’s now loyal to NBC and on AGT a couple nights a week. Derek?? Has a producing deal with NBC and says with a great deal of certainty (while literally standing 4 feet from me – and I was sitting. Imagine that. ๐Ÿ™‚ ) that he will be back on World of Dance in 2020. He might be back for the last season of DWTS…but I wouldn’t hold my breath. I only say these things because invariably I see people in the comments and on twitter putting him in their pro wish list or predictions. Just stop already. I will be STUNNED if he appears on DWTS this or any other season. I do think that Hannah and Derek would make a beautiful dancing pair – oh yes. But even if he were back I don’t think we would see it. Ah well. Maks?? No idea and he’s not that great of a source on his own stuff – he tends to change his mind and/or use his leverage. But I believe he’s indicated that he won’t be back. Mark? VERY doubtful. Why would he? And then there’s the rest….We don’t know a lot yet, because I don’t think they know a lot yet. Read more..
