After four weeks of "Dancing With the Stars" predictions, three of our contest entrants are tied at the top of our leaderboard with 7 out of 12 correct: Avaday, WiltedYouth and Denton Davidson. Will this trio still be in the lead after Monday night's results? (Click here to see our complete predictions leaderboard.)
Denton agrees with our overall racetrack odds that celebrity chef Paula Deen will get the boot after she received the lowest score from judges last week. However, WiltedYouth thinks no one will be sent home. Tonight is the "Switch Up" episode, in which the contestants will be paired with different pro dancers for one night only. So will any couple be eliminated, or will the stars be given the chance to reunite with their regular partners next week before an unlucky performer is ousted? 15% of our users agree with WiltedYouth, resulting in 11/2 odds.
Our contest leaders also disagree in their predictions for the night's highest score. Denton is betting that singer and talk show host Tamar Braxton will come out on top for the second time this season, but that Bindi Irwin will ultimately win the season. However, WiltedYouth is predicting a high score for boy band member Nick Carter.
Also making predictions for Monday night is ThePerksOfBeingAGriff, who had the top score predicting the results of last week's "TV Themes Night" and ranks fourth on our leaderboard for the season to date. He's going out on a limb by betting that singer Andy Grammer will be sent home. He's also betting on a top score and eventual mirror ball trophy win for Alexa PenaVega, even though she had her worst night of the competition last week, scoring near the bottom of the judges' leaderboard.
One or two surprises might be all it takes to dramatically shake up our predictions contest leaderboard. The battle to win our contest may turn out to be just as dramatic as the fight for the mirror ball trophy. The winner of this season's contest will receive a $100 Amazon gift certificate. We're also giving $100 for getting the top score in each week's predictions, provided you qualify according to our contest rules.
