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 Ashley Hamilton?
Ashley Hamilton is an actor, although he may be better known for his relationships than his work. The former hubby of Shannen Doherty and son of actor and DWTS alum George Hamilton appeared with Doherty on Saturday Night Live in 1993. His other screen credits include the family film Beethoven’s 2nd in the same year and a short-lived soap in 1997. Today, he is best known for his stand-up routines at the Hollywood Improv, The Comedy Store, & Room 5 in Los Angeles.
Edyta Sliwinska’s History
The so-called queen of Dancing with the Stars, Edyta Sliwinska had been on every season of the ABC dancing competition but has yet to win something. Her best finish so far had been her runner-up finish with partner football player Jason Taylor, losing only to golden girl Kristi Yamaguchi.
My Prediction: Middle of the Pack
On the plus side, daddy George was on Dancing with the Stars season 2 and can give his son some pointers (probably on how to entertain and charm the audience, not so much with the dancing). That being said, we have absolutely no clue how limber Ashley is. He does seem fit and healthy, and if he can’t out-dance the competition, his comedic timing might come in handy, but don’t expect him to come waltzing into the finals. With Queen Edyta as partner, though, awesome things can happen, so expect the unexpected.
