    Absolutely - that's how this show is designed, but we all know that in the end, the judges have far more discretion as to who they want to take the trophy - not the viewers.

    This season's -winner-take-all decided who was going to the finals and who the judges decided they want to win - if Mark/Chelsea don't win, I'll be shocked.

    I think she's got a bigger fan base than either Hines or Chelsea at this point.
    Sorry, haven't gone back to see if this was mentioned - but she was also in the movie Runaway - with Tom Selleck and Gene Simmons. Wasn't a huge hit, but did well - and I personally loved it!

    Well my votes are up for grabs next week as I can't decide between Kristie or Hines. Ralph is such a class act and I believe I still have pin ups of him from BOP magazine in storage.

    I really hope you're wrong! I do think the producers wanted Mark and Chelsea in the finals and the winner take all cha cha was how they made that happen. But I am hoping that between her and Hines, he has the bigger fan base. My concern is that there are potential overlapping fans with Hines and Kirstie. Not so much with Chelsea - and unfortunately, that may work in her favor next week.

    She was also in a number of made-for-TV movies, some of which did quite well. One of them was A Bunny's Tale, based on Gloria Steinem's early undercover assignment as a bunny in one of the Playboy clubs. She was sent in to do a sort of funny, fluff piece and what she ended up finding out about was the rampant sexism in the workplace, which she started then to see elsewhere as well, leading to her starting to advocate for women's rights.

    I thought it was rather ironic that she was in that movie, on DWTS with Kendra and Karina (both of whom have posed in Playboy and one of whom became famous for being one of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends), and that after she was booted off the show, Kendra said she wanted Kirstie to win.

    I'm expecting the Ralph treatment for her on Monday, for Hines on Tuesday, if they do want a Mark win. They've already rigged it for them to make the finals, angered a whole group of fans, why not go all the way? It'll be telling next week which way they're sliding. I wonder how many judges only dances we'll have scored. Mark was pretty mum on his freestyle except saying it was 'a crowd pleasing song'. Chelsea should take a seat on the steps and wait for him to finish dancing it for her. I feel like Kym is going to give the better freestyle, technically, but Mark's will be really flashy and what CA and Bruno like.

    I think the endgame is fairly predictable. It will come down to a Chelsea/Hines final 2, and the judges' scores will be close. And in that scenario, Hines' fanbase will tower over Chelsea's. This season is Hines' to lose.

    Hines winning would be the perfect outcome after this semi-finale setup. Wouldn't mind Kirstie, either, but Hines has performed better than her, imo, so I would like him to take it home. Hoping Chelsea & her so-called partner get kicked out in 3rd place, although I'm sure the judges scores will prevent that from happening.

    Loved seeing Warren back. One of my favorite contestants on any season. And still love his & Kym's freestyle. That was one of the best parts of this results show to me. Tayla (was that her name? Maybe I need a cue card like Brooke did after watching the package) was great as well! Loved seeing Tony & Anna dance, too!!

    Sad to see Ralph kicked off. I'm not rooting for Hines. I really dislike the other two.

    So would I. For a Jets and Yankees fan, that's saying something.
