In this series, we will study the 16 couples on Dancing with the Stars season 9 and predict who has the best chances for success, and who is doomed to humiliation.

Who is Louie Vito?
Louie Vito is a professional snowboarder, and among the country's best ones. One of those highly considered for the 2010 Olympic team, Louie competes in both Pipe and Slopestyle disciplines. The 21-year-old is a veteran of several Winter X-Games competitions, alongside winning the USSA Grand Prix Halfpipe Series twice.

Chelsie Hightower's Record
This is only Chelsie's second season on Dancing with the Stars, and already, she shows a lot of promise. Last season, she finished fourth with Ty Murray.

My prediction: Middle of the Pack
This two seem to be a very appealing couple, both young and hip. Athletes, regardless of sport, have also done historically well on Dancing with the Stars, so expectations are understandably high for this couple.
