There are just two weeks left in Season 24 of “Dancing With the Stars.” Right now, four worthy teams remain in the game.
Still, fans of the ABC competition series have been taking bets as to which team will win it all. The latest betting odds from Oddsmakers have Team Valmani (Val Chmerkovskiy and Normani Kordei) edging out Team Golden Giggles (Sasha Farber and Simone Biles) for the win in the finals. As we’ve learned through watching the show in the last few weeks, anything can happen.
Also a contender for the Mirrorball trophy are Team Shad Squad (Emma Slater and Rashad Jennings) and Team Lady and the Gramp (Lindsay Arnold and David Ross). Oddsmakers had either Team Denim N Diamonds (Sharna Burgess and Bonner Bolton) or Lindsay and David going home in Week 8, so it seems safe to say most “DWTS” fans’ money isn’t on them for the win. Rashad and Emma could take it all, provided they can take the judges critiques to heart and clean up the NFL superstar’s footwork a bit.
In Week 8 on “DWTS,” the pairs performed with their partners before adding a member to their teams for a trio routine. Team Valmani and Team Golden Giggles dominated, though the judges critiqued Simone for smiling so much. By the end of Monday’s episode, it was clear that she was frustrated and feeling the pressure of making it so far.
“I feel like everyone has their own opinion, clearly, and I feel it’s just how you take it,” she told ET Online after the show. “I feel like I am trying, I am being honest, but if they don’t see that, I don’t know what more I can do.”
While Simone seems ready to hang up her dancing shoes, her partner’s prepared to channel her frustration into something great in the semifinals. He promised ET that they were going to return to the “DWTS” ballroom in Week 9 with something spectacular that will satisfy the judges’ need for emotion. Defending Simone, whom he’s become close to in the last few weeks, Sasha said she’s working “hard” and picking up dancing quicker than most.
