Almost all of our users who have entered our “Dancing with the Stars” predictions contest for week three, “Vegas Night,” are predicting that one of two stars will be eliminated: Spanish actress and musician Charo or former pro wrestler Mr. T. But which one?
As of this writing Charo is more likely to be sent home. She gets leading odds of 8/13, which translates to a 61% chance of getting the boot. But she didn’t get the lowest judges’ score last week, Mr. T did. Charo ranked second to last, tied with former “Bachelor” Nick Viall (25 out of 40 points), so why is she the most likely to be sent home? It’s possible our users expect Mr. T’s fans to come out in force to save their celeb at the bottom of the leaderboard. Or perhaps Charo’s irrepressible enthusiasm combined with her downright belligerent attitude towards the judges when she doesn’t like her scores hasn’t won her any new fans.
Mr. T follows with 12/5 odds, or a 29% chance of elimination. He tied comedian Chris Kattan for the lowest judges’ score last week (22 out of 40), but Kattan was eliminated, leaving Mr. T at the bottom going into week three. He scored three points lower than Charo and Viall, so even if his fans voted for him aggressively, he may still struggle to make up the difference. But fans have come to the rescue of the lowest-scored contestant many times before.
Even though bull rider and model Bonner Bolton finished in the judges’ top four last week for his Viennese waltz, he ranks third in our elimination predictions. But maybe he doesn’t have to worry too much. With 28/1 odds he only has a 3% chance of leaving the show. He’s followed by “Real Housewives” star Erika Jayne (33/1 odds, 3% chance) and Viall (40/1 odds, 2% chance).
