'Dancing with the Stars' season 27 poll: Who in the Top 6 has what it takes to win the mirror ball trophy?
With a rather surprising assortment of contestants left, it's not that hard to pick a favorite if one goes by the leaderboard. Yet, you never know with the public voting!
With just one week left before this season's semi-finals of ABC's 'Dancing with the Stars', almost everybody has their favorites picked out. Well, so did we - right from day one, actually - rooting for and hoping to see our best stakes, DeMarcus Ware and Tinashe in the finals, but sadly, both of them were eliminated.
Surely, this has been the case with a lot of other fans, especially ones who supported female contestants from day 1 of this season, because for the first five weeks, only female contestants were eliminated. And now, with a rather surprising assortment of contestants left, it can't be that hard to pick a favorite if one goes by the leaderboard. Yet, you never know with the public voting!
Speaking of votes, MEAWW got curious about who the fans would love to see winning the coveted Mirrorball trophy this season. Among the remaining total of six contestants, only two are women, but that's not what this is all about. We want to know who, according to you, should walk home with the Mirrorball this season, regardless of their gender, profession, or good looks. Okay, the last criterion is pretty relative, so maybe we'll let that pass.
But before you vote in our poll (look right at the end of this article!), here's a quick round-up of the remaining contestants, their partners, strengths, weaknesses, and consistency in terms of their performances on the show, so far. Enjoy!
1. Evanna Lynch and Keo Mostepe
The Harry Potter actress might have seemed like a weak link in the initial stages of the season, but over time, she has really let it all go and owned the stage much like her feral Halloween Night catwoman avatar. From low 20s to a full-blown perfect score of 30 out of 30 - our dearest Luna Lovegood has shown major skill and potential as the show evolved this time around.
2. Juan Pablo Di Pace and Cheryl Burke:
Right from day one, the actor has taken both judges and viewers by surprise purely through his dancing skills. Every time he brought something to the dance floor, it was deemed incredible by all three judges, and needless to say - he has also probably had the maximum highest scores in this season so far!
3. 'Grocery Store' Joe Amabile and Jenna Johnson:
This is probably one of the most fan-favorite couples on this season of 'DWTS' as viewers and fans cannot seem to get enough of the charming 'Bachelor in Paradise' star. His journey on the show has been quite controversial, purely because of the fact that his scores have been hovering on the lower end of the scoreboard, but somehow, he has never landed in jeopardy yet. But that isn't all as Amabile has also shown remarkable improvement in the last two episodes with his scores jumping from minor 17s and 18s to a whopping 22 out of 30 on Halloween Night. And that's saying something for a self-proclaimed non-dancer!
4. Milo Manheim and Witney Carson:
The 'Zombies' actor is yet another consistent performer on this season of 'DWTS'. Right from the start, if not the topmost scorer every week, Manheim has always been on the higher end of the spectrum when it comes to the leaderboard. He has even achieved the perfect score of 30 out of 30, and if there's a chemistry that could give Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten a tough competition, it would be Manheim and Carson's. Granted, Manheim had the added bonus of already knowing some ballroom dancing coming in, but that doesn't invalidate his improvement on the show in any form!
5. Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten:
Speaking of chemistry, these two might as well have been appointed the winners in that aspect, so much so that their connection even managed to spark romance rumors. Which, of course, turned out to be true, as the two of them are definitely a thing now and have already kissed on camera. But what's also remarkable is how impeccable their performances have been. Ren's style and Bersten's precision have earned the couple the highest scores twice already, but sadly, fortune doesn't seem to favor them when it comes to the votes. With them already stepping into jeopardy twice now, let's hope the voters soon realize that these two are gems beyond their cutesy romance brewing.
6. Bobby Bones and Sharna Burgess:
The radio personality is yet another star contestant on this season of 'DWTS' whose journey has been debated over on social media a lot. With scores far from impressive, Bones has still somehow managed to keep his fans rooting strongly for him and that shows in the votes. Despite being at the bottom end of the leaderboard, not once has he landed in jeopardy. And since the beginning, his energy and excitement have been applauded by all three judges on the show.
