    “Who’s Likeliest to Win?” people watching something else.

  2. Tran says:

    My money’s on Alfonso Ribeiro.

  3. wrstlgirl says:

    There’s absolutely no one in this line up that I’m at all interested in watching. I’m passing on this season.

  4. linda2009 says:

    If it wasn’t for Alfonso Ribeiro, I wouldn’t even be watching this season. I hope he goes all the way (although if he doesn’t, then I’ll have one less show to bother with, which would be nice). Thank goodness for DVR and the fast-forward function!

    Finally an non-caucasian pro…

    and yet again, the obvious demographic target casting…another child of an idiot spewing religious garbage.

  6. wordsmith says:

    It’s funny, glancing at Lolo Jones’ cast photo, I assumed she was the pro and her partner was the celeb.

  7. KCC says:

    Alfonso Ribeiro for the win

  8. Drew says:

    Okay, I don’t actually watch this show, but I always assumed that it featured stars. Aside from Allison Holker, I don’t see any stars.

  9. Lizo says:

    Awesome Lea Thompson is doing it! Rooting for her. Though it’s funny because DWTS is totally something Kathryn Kennish would do on Switched at Birth.

  10. marianne beck says:

    It’s a tough call. However, I can expect an older celebrity to win the mirror ball trophy-like Lea
    or Alfonso.

  11. Daniela says:

    I’m voting for Tommy Chong because he’s entertaining to watch and doesn’t take himself seriously which is refreshing 😁

  12. Brian Elliott says:

    The winner should definitely be one of the ones with no dancing backround is Sadie or Bethany

  13. Karla Judkins says:

    I have been a very big fan of DWTS since in started years ago. I can honestly say this year is one of most exciting and great performance ever. My favorite is Olfanzo. I believe he should be the winner of 2015.
