As is often the case on Dancing With the Stars, the lineup for Season 21 of the reality staple elicited reactions ranging from, “I vaguely remember her one IMDb credit!” to “Siri, what is a Hayes Grier?”
Still, regardless of how many names you might recognize on this season’s roster, Sept. 14 will kick off yet another fight for the coveted Mirrorball trophy (ABC, 8/7c), and we’re continuing our tradition of predicting who might win the whole shebang.
In our gallery below, we’ve made a case for each of the celebrities/”celebrities” competing in Season 21, and set odds of them snatching the top prize away from reigning champ Val Chmerkovskiy. (As for Chmerkovskiy himself, odds are decent that he’ll pull off back-to-back wins.)
