Did Bindi Irwin solidify her frontrunner status on “Famous Dances” night on “Dancing With the Stars“? One week after Alexa PenaVega posted the season’s first perfect score (40 out of 40), Irwin did the same with her “Dirty Dancing”-inspired rumba with pro partner Derek Hough. She tied Tamar Braxton and Andy Grammer at the top of the judges’ leaderboard, but this was the fourth time Irwin has gotten the top score this season so far.
As of Monday night’s show, Irwin was predicted to win the season by 55% of readers participating in our predictions contest, but this morning she’s already up to 69%, giving her leading odds of 4/9. Alexa, who struggled on Monday night, is second with 12% of contest players predicting her to win and 7/1 odds. Carlos PenaVega and Nick Carter each get 6% of the vote, resulting in 16/1 odds for both.
