DWTS Season 2 champion Drew Lachey shared his Finale predictions with TV Guide. "I gotta believe it's gonna be either Chelsea or Hines," he said. "Chelsea and Hines are the strongest dancers and can do more in the Freestyle."
However, he added that Kirstie and hot partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy's fan base is "The big X-factor."
If Warren Sapp is voting, Kirstie may still have a chance to win. "Hines is my boy, but I just love Kirstie because she doesn't care,” Warren told TV Guide. "She lets go! You can see the confidence coming out of her pores!"
Warren made it to second place on DWTS Season 7. He danced with Kym Johnson, so he'd better back her partner, Hines!
Hines, a wide receiver, is the fifth football player to make the Finals. He follows Season 7 defensive tackle Warren; Season 2 runner-up, wide receiver Jerry Rice; Season 3 winner, running back Emmitt Smith; and Season 6 runner-up, linebacker Jason Taylor. Quarterback Kurt Warner came close last season, but missed the Finals.
There’s just something about watching tough guys dance around in sequins and rhinestones that appeals to audiences. Can’t imagine why!
