No one has been sent home at the end of the season premiere of “Dancing with the Stars”, but they won’t be so lucky tonight. The judges’ scores and viewer votes on nights one and two of the competition will be combined to determine the first celebrity sent home. So who will it be?
According to the combined predictions of our users who have placed their bets all week here in our prediction center, it’s not even close. The vast majority say actor of “Karate Kid” and “Cobra Kai” Martin Kove will be expelled from the competition by roundhouse; he gets a 29/10 chance of being sent home. He is around 70 years old, which makes him the oldest competitor in the competition by far. And as is often the case with older celebrities, he had limited range of motion on the dance floor, which earned him the lowest score in the competition.
And not only was he at the bottom of the leaderboards for the season one episode, he scored eight points lower than the next lowest star: he received a total of 13 out of 40, compared to the basketball player Iman Shumpertis 21 out of 40. So even if Kove will have a chance tonight to add to his score, it is unlikely that he will be able to close that gap, so his fate will depend on the votes of the home fans, and it is unclear. how passionate an online fan base there is for a character actor like him.
But in the unlikely event that Kove is able to get off the mat this week, our users say Shumpert is next in contention for elimination with a 9/2 odds, followed by the WWE wrestler. Mike “Le Miz” Mizanin (ratings 5/1), social media personality Olivia jade (11/2 ratings) and star of “Bling Empire” Christine chiu (13/2 sides). What do you think?
