Everyone is sort of falling where I figured, dance wise, with two exceptions: Kirstie and Kendra. I expected Kendra to be much better, and Kirstie to be far worse. So for the ladies, my original prediction of saying bye to Wendy early I'll stick with, and will throw Kendra and Petra in as potential early to early-middle boots as well. I think Kirstie will run out of steam and votes as the competition winds down. I do think Chelsea will be the last woman standing, barring a surprise or attitude from her and Mark that leads to people taking their votes elsewhere.
For the guys, I figured pre-show Mike was a goner, and that Sugar Ray might have a hard time competing with the rest. I think Romeo and Chris will probably go middle of the pack, and Hines and Ralph will be standing there at the end. I do agree we're probably in for a male winner this season. If a woman wins, I'm picking Chelsea for the Ballas factor. For the guys I think it'll be Ralph or Hines right now, with the potential for Chris or Romeo to sneak in there. But Hines is a popular football player from a fan crazy team, he's delightful to watch with Kym, so he's got all the right stuff to make it to the finals.
And it's getting even harder to tell, but was Brooke even worse tonight than normal? It seems like she didn't even care. At least Samantha had a personality. Brooke might as well just stand there, because there's no difference when she opens her mouth. Maybe she misses Derek. She just acted bored and uninterested. And they need to have her come up with better questions for everyone. I'm sure they're just as tired of hearing 'how was it', 'tough comments from the judges tonight', 'last week, this happened...moving forward'
