Dancing with the Stars is causing many of its longtime viewers to question the casting of Chaz Bono in the upcoming season, but if you believe online betters, the odds of him winning it all are unlikely. Bono is ranked dead last amongst his fellow celebrity would-be dancers, at least according to online betting website Bodog.
Those that have already placed their bets before the stars even take to the dance floor are predicting that Bono will have 20-1 odds of winning the hit reality series competition. Sitting next to him is polarizing HLN host Nancy Grace, who is not far from Bono, nabbing 18-1 odds.
As for who the oddmakers are saying will end up leaving with the mirrored ball trophy, it is the ex-girlfriend of George Clooney, model Elisabetta Canalis, who ranks in at 9-2. Coming in second is American soccer goalkeeper Hope Solo with 5/1, and third is former The Hills star Kristin Cavallari with 11-2.
After Cavallari, fashion expert Carson Kressley comes in at 7-1 odds, followed by the brother of Kim Kardashian, Robert Kardashian, at 15-2 odds. Chynna Phillips ranks sixth with 8-1 odds. Actors David Arquette, J.R. Martinez, Ricki Lake, and NBA player Ron Artest tie in seventh place, with each grabbing 10-1 odds.
If you feel that some of your favorites are ranked lower than they should be, don’t take the Bodog predictions too seriously. Last season, they predicted that Kendra Wilkinson was going to win it all with 3-1 odds; Wilkinson ended up coming in sixth place. The ultimate winner, Hines Ward, was ranked fourth at 11-2 odds.
