Of those who have entered our predictions contest, most (53%) are still betting on wildlife conservationist Bindi Irwin, giving her leading odds of 9/10 as of this writing.

This is strictly a three-person race according to our prediction contest participants. Three more dancers trail with 50/1 odds and 2% of votes: Tamar Braxton, Alek Skarlatos and Alexa’s husband Carlos PenaVega. Are we underestimating them?
