I can’t decide who will be eliminated on Monday’s episode of “Dancing With the Stars.”
Sure, Charlotte McKinney is the top pick to be ousted among those predicting the results in our ongoing contest. But this buxom beauty has bounced back before. Same with farmer turned reality star Chris Soules who is currently a close second according to our exclusive odds. However, he could be kept in by all those viewers of “The Bachelor.”
Let’s take a look at who our contest leaders have in their sights. (Every week, the reader with the best score wins a $100 Amazon gift card. At the end of the season, our overall leader will win a $100 Amazon gift card and a place of honor on our reality TV leaderboards.
Our overall leader, Radzie, is predicting McKinney will be tossed from the show as does reality TV show guru Ryan LaPierre, who is currently in second-place. And Other Daryl, who got the top score last week and won $100 for his efforts, is also forecasting that this will be the last dance for her.
However, as of this writing, McKinney has odds of only 7/5. That means if she is given the chop, I only earn 140 points for correctly making this prediction. Should I take a chance on someone with longer odds?
After all, that strategy paid off for everyone last week who foresaw that the first eliminated celebrity would be RedFoo, who was only the fourth most likely to go according to our odds.
Indeed, Other Daryl did so well last week because he put his 500 point super bet on that result. That savvy move earned him 950 points. (You also get two super bets of 200 points each every week; the other questions are set at 100 points per.)
If I bet my 500 points on Suzanne Somers — currently at 12/1 — and she is eliminated, I will earn a whopping 6,000 points. And with her having been the last celebrity to be declared safe last week and a score from the judges of 28 this week, she may be vulnerable.
By comparison, McKinney scored 26 and Soules 21. But McKinney was tied with Redfoo for lowest score in week one at 22 and she made it through without being in the bottom two. Same for Soules who had 26 in week one.
