“Dancing With the Stars” is down to its final four contestants, and just like last season, there’s only one man left standing: Alfonso Ribeiro. He’s still the frontrunner to win according to our users, who give him 14/5 odds, but he was injured while training for last week’s semifinals and finished third in the judges’ standings. Does that put him at risk of the season’s most shocking elimination right at the home stretch?

Ribeiro faces a trio of formidable women: actress Janel Parrish, who has topped the judges’ scores for the last three weeks in a row; YouTube star Bethany Mota, who has a huge online fan base and is partnered with the all-time biggest “DWTS” champ, Derek Hough; and “Duck Dynasty” teen Sadie Robertson, who could benefit from the same conservative voters who helped Candace Cameron Bure to an unlikely top-three finish last season.
If Ribeiro is eliminated on Monday night, it would be the second season in a row that “DWTS” has ended with an all-female top three, and only the third time in the show’s history. Last season, mirror ball champ Meryl Davis and runner-up Amy Purdy joined Cameron Bure in the top three. And not long before that, in season 15, the top-three was swept by ladies Melissa Rycroft, Shawn Johnson, and Kelly Monaco.
But our users expect Ribeiro to sail through despite his latest difficulties. He’s the least likely to be eliminated according to our racetrack odds – even last week’s top-scoring dancer, Parrish, is likelier to be axed according to our predictors, including two of our top five users, Ryan Lapierre and Cordell Martin, who think she will be the night’s shocking elimination and not Ribeiro.
But Robertson, who finished with the lowest judges’ score last week, is the likeliest to be on the chopping block, getting 13/5 odds, followed by Mota with 10/3 odds.
What do you think? Is Robertson a goner, or should Ribeiro or Parrish prepare for a rude awakening? Predict who will be sent home below, and click here to make the rest of your predictions.
