It's been so long since we had to get rid of someone, I am not sure if I remember how to predict a Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars elimination. But I will try. And you will try. Together, we might even get it right.
Most Likely to Be Eliminated
Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (combined scores = 82)
They got two extra points when Kirstie spanked Maks, but that may not be enough. These were great weeks for the couple, but will fans remember that or remember the low scores that came before?
Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy (combined scores = 78.5)
Although they redeemed themselves pretty well in week 6, Kelly and Val were the surprising pair at the bottom in week 5. And then they were less than charming about it. That could affect votes a lot.
Should Be Eliminated
Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
This was a tough one. Kelly and Val present a compelling case for elimination, with their widely varying scores. Also, they are not as fun to watch. But, overall, Kirstie and Maks are very much at the bottom of the remaining DWTS pack. It might be their time.
Should Be Worried
Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd (combined scores = 84)
Despite an incredible individual dance last week and despite being the highlight of the "Gangnam Style" dance and despite a good but under-scored (comparatively) cha-cha in week 6, Gilles and Peta might be in danger. Last night, they dance first and got unusually low scores. Could they be forgotten?
Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough (combined scores = 84.5)
After weeks on top, it's dangerous to take a tumble. Shawn and Derek can't seem to catch a break from the judges, and their dances in these past two weeks haven't been up to their own high standards.
Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani (combined scores = 86)
These two had a great couple of weeks, despite Melissa's injury. Still, Melissa is a relatively obscure celebrity who might not get the fan votes she needs.
Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke (combined scores = 82.5)
Emmitt is a lot of fun and nothing but lovable. But this definitely was not his best two-week period, when compared to the others. In competition this stiff, that could be a problem.
Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff (combined scores = 86.5)
The 30 in week 6 should be good for this pair, but it only came after several weeks of low scores and lackluster dancing. Is one 30 enough?
Probably Safe... For Now
Sabrina Bryan and Louis Van Amstel (combined scores = 88.5)
These two had a great couple of weeks. Two of the highest individual scores combined with the higher group score work to make Sabrina and Louis front-runners in this competition. You know, assuming the audience doesn't just vote them off again.
