Chaz Bono, Nancy Grace ‘DWTS’ Long Shots, Betting Site Says

Written by Jessica Smith on Sep. 04, 2011

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.

    God, this is such a scam! The controversy is phony, fake…a fraud. Most people don’t care! This is designed to create awareness and sympathy to sell i-phones, cars push an agenda, simple as that! It’s not about winning. Its about creating a fairy tale story about “overcoming” and “rising above”…and all of the rest pablum. Its pablum because its contrived! The publicists are having field days ginning up fake news about this, including of course this! Who cares if she wins or loses. It’s as phony as a sex change. God bless her with her decision to remove her genitals and breasts be what she wants to be. Hope she performs well. It matters not! Its TV, its total fraud and so is the ginned-up controversy!

    I don’t know what’s the big deal about Chaz. He had a very hard life accepting his sexuality and getting his mother’s acceptance, as well as from the people he loved. It’s not his fault that he was born in the wrong body, and it’s not right to judge people without knowing them and what they go through in their lives, day after day.

    Why do people keep calling Chasity Bono a man?  She had a bit of surgery and takes a few pills.  That doesn’t make her a man.  It makes her a freak.
