If Peta challenges Donald more with the choreography, he could win this thing, but right now it looks like Katherine and Mark will take the top spot. If William comes in fourth (after Maria), I won't mind, but any higher than that would be a travesty. Gilles was much sexier than William, in my opinion, plus he was 10 times a better dancer ... heck, 100 times better!

I think it all depends on the freestyle, period. The best freestyle tends to win. Derek and Mark can both choreograph great freestyles. Cheryl has the potential - but I remember the abomination that was her freestyle with Gilles. If she does that with William, then no way he will win. The big unknown, assuming they make it there, is DD, because Peta has not choreographed one before.
It will be interesting if Jaleel and William find themselves in a dance duo, and Jaleel dances the way he did last night in the cha cha ... will the judges continue to boost William and oust Jaleel?
There's no "like" button on your post, KatesMom, but I agree. Cheryl lost the trophy for Gilles with that ridiculous, boring freestyle she choreographed that did absolutely nothing to showcase his immense talent. I remember watching it and waiting for the wow part that never came. Could not believe my eyes. She totally wasted the opportunity. Still don't understand that. I don't know if she's doing the same thing with William, or if she's aware that his dancing ability is far below what it needs to be, so she has no choice but to showcase his body. Regarding Peta and DD, I think it might be too late for them to catch up with Katherine and Mark. She's done great pretty consistently, and good ol' Spatz knows how to choreograph for his partner, even though he does get carried away with himself on occasion.
