Week 5 of “Dancing With the Stars” was full of fun and excitement as the remaining nine couples swapped partners for Season 21’s anticipated “Switch Up.” And while no one was sent home during the Monday night installment, someone will be forced to sashay away in the upcoming episode of the hit ABC series.
That’s right, the competition will be cut down to eight couples. But which dancing duo is currently on the chopping block of getting the boot? Well, considering eliminations are based on a combination of the judges’ scores and voters, we have some theories of who might be asked to leave the ballroom.
Paula Deen & Louis van Amstel
The Southern chef has managed to woo audiences with her eccentric personality and wild antics. (You did see her jaw-dropping Milkman-routine with Mark Ballas, right?) But, unfortunately, the butter-loving cook is averaging the lowest score of the group, which is why we think she may be sent home during Monday’s installment, set to the theme of “Famous Dance Night.”
Can Paula prove she’s worthy of winning the coveted Mirror Ball trophy next week?
Alek Skarlatos & Lindsay Arnold
We know, we know – this pains us, too! But scores are scores and Alek and Lindsay are pulling in significantly low ones compared to Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough. Not only is the duo averaging low results, but the judges have also noted that they want Alek to bring more personality onto the dance floor – and we fear it's his lack of magnetism that could ultimately be the soldier’s downfall.
We’ve seen moments where Alek has come out of his shell (and beautifully so) but now that we’re six weeks into the dance series, anything can make or break a contestant – and we think it's Alek’s shy persona could be what gets him sent home.
Who do you think will get the axe during Season 21, Week 6 of “Dancing With the Stars”? Sound off in the comments section below and don’t forget to tune into the hit ABC competition on Monday nights at 8 p.m. EDT.
