The conclusion of Dancing With the Stars Season 24 will take place over the next two nights as the final three contestants battle it out to see who will take home the famous Dancing with the Stars mirror ball trophy. This season, like so many in the past, has had a bit of controversy. However, last week’s voting off of Simone Biles was so shocking that it even had the judges staring into space wondering what had just happened!
In what turned out to be one of the most controversial eliminations in Dancing with the Stars history, Simone Biles was sent packing while David Ross advanced to the finals. When the weekly elimination for the week was actually read, you could see that the judges were even speechless.
After the results were issued, Ross went on record indicating that he actually felt bad for Biles and couldn’t believe that she was eliminated from the semifinal round.
In Ross’s defense, he is doing a great job and deserves full credit for being in the finals. Biles was also doing a great job, in fact, you can say that the high-flying gold medal winner was doing a fantastic job, but sometimes the fan voting can tip a certain way even when it leaves viewers of DWTS shaking their heads.
MLB.com indicates that while Ross may be one of the biggest underdogs in history heading into tonight’s Dancing with the Stars finals, however, he may have a secret up his sleeve – Cubs nation.
Ross has had great support from his former teammates and fans from the Windy City that have been pulling for him every step of the way. They have also been voting like crazy for the former catcher of the 2016 World Series champs.
“He’s easy to like, he’s easy to pull for and I think that’s why you see so much support for him,” Jake Arrieta said. “[Fans?] might have been a little disappointed by Simone [Biles] getting eliminated, but it’s a testament to the support they have and the hundreds of thousands of people voting for them. Obviously, we’re all pulling for them.”
If Ross pulls off the win on Tuesday, it could be one of the biggest upsets in Dancing with the Stars history.
USA Today indicates that the odds for the final three contestants have been set, and the former Chicago Cubs catcher is the longest long shot on the board.
Fifth Harmony singer Normani Kordei is now the overwhelming favorite to win the Season 24 edition of Dancing with the Stars at 2-1 odds. Like all of the three remaining contestants, Normani’s fan base will play a huge role in if she wins the title on Tuesday evening. Kordei has proven that her dance moves are just a good as her voice! She is going to be tough to beat in the finals.
Behind Kordei is NFL star Rashad Jennings. Jennings is listed at 10-1, which is a distant second from 2-1, especially considering there are only three contestants in the final round competing for the mirrorball trophy. Jennings has successfully taken his smooth moves from the gridiron to the dance floor and is more than capable of pulling off the upset.
Last but far from least is David Ross. Ross’ odds are set at a whopping 30-1 to pull off the upset and claim the Season 24 Dancing with the Stars title. After last week, you can never say never when it comes to this season’s Dancing with the Stars results!
Fans of DWTS can tune in to catch all of the live action and results beginning tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. The two-day Dancing with the Stars finale will wrap up on Tuesday evening when the official winner of Dancing with the Stars Season 24 will be revealed.
