Who’s going to win season 26 of Dancing With the Stars: Athletes? The mirror ball champion will be revealed in less than two weeks!
With two basketball stars – Kareem Abdul Jabar and Arike Ogunbowale — having been voted off, the field has been narrowed further! Let’s take a look at the remaining competitors!
Tonya Harding/Sasha Farber: Harding has done a great job not only dancing, but also in letting America know that she wants a chance at redemption. As many know, Harding was involved in a scandal in which her skating competitor Nancy Kerrigan was clubbed over the knee shortly before the two were set to face off with one another. America loves a comeback story so it’s possible Harding could win! Bonus: Farber has fans, too, and they’d love to see him be a first time mirror ball champ!
Adam Rippon/Jenna Johnson: Rippon won America’s hearts at the last Olympics and the only thing sharper than the blades on his skates is his wit. Rippon was one of this week’s top scorers so his place in the finals is very likely!
Chris Mazdzer/Witney Carson: His million dollar smile has made Mazdzer a favorite among DWTS fans. And his partner, Carson, knows how to win a mirror ball trophy so this talented duo is also another contender. Oh, and we think Mazdzer has a career in Hollywood, too, if he wants!
Jennie Finch Daigle/Keo Motsepe: Daigle won viewer supporter last week after she requested that the song she was originally given to dance to be switched out with something more appropriate. Motsepe is due a win so their fans are hoping they survive the semi-finals.
Josh Norman/Sharna Burgess: The NFL cornerback got great remarks last week from guest judge Rashad Jennings, last season’s mirror ball champ. Burgess is another pro who deserves to win. Her popularity could play a key role in them getting enough votes to go to the finals.
Mirai Nagasu/Alan Bersten: Valentin Chmerkovskiy has said that Bersten is the future of the show. Hey, no pressure there! But ice skaters have a habit of winning this competition so it’s possible that Nagasu could skate, er, dance her way to victory!
Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays on ABC at 8 p.m.
