Last week the vast majority of users predicted that celebrity chef Paula Deen would be eliminated from “Dancing With the Stars” after weeks of falling short with her performance scores, but with her out of the way our readers can’t agree on who will be the next sent packing.

As of this writing, 42% of our readers who have entered our predictions contest say military man Alek Skarlatos will get the boot after landing at the bottom of the judges’ leaderboard, giving him odds of 7/5. Another 18% think social medial star Hayes Grier will be sent home instead (9/2 odds). Even though actress Alexa PenaVega tied Skarlatos with the lowest judges’ score, only 14% say she’ll be the unlucky dancer (6/1 odds). Perhaps our users are expecting her fan base to rally after her surprisingly low scores last Monday. After all, Skarlatos came into the show as a virtual unknown, while both PenaVega and Grier brought a lot of existing fans with them.

When it comes to predicting the winner this season, wildlife conservationist Bindi Irwin, who has gotten the top judges’ score three times so far this season with Emmy-winning pro partner Derek Hough, is holding steady. She now gets odds of 4/5 based on support from 56% of those making predictions, down only slightly from 58% predicting her to prevail this time last week.

Meanwhile, boy band member Nick Carter continues to rise. He holds on to second place this week with 18% of prediction votes and 9/2 odds (up from 13% and 13/2 odds last week). Despite struggling with her scores, Alexa PenaVega is holding on to our third-place slot, down slightly from 14% to 11% of our readers. Tamar Braxton is fourth with 5% support and 20/1 odds despite getting a perfect score last week.
