Anna Trebunskaya: I Can Tell Who’ll Win DWTS After the First Show

Now we know what to do — after the premiere of Dancing With the Stars Season 14 we should call pro dancer Anna Trebunskaya for her prediction of who will win. She seems to have a good track record for that sort of thing.

Anna and her DWTS hubby Jonathan Roberts are now performing in "Champions of the Dance” in Philadelphia. Anna gave a fun new interview to, sharing details on her dancing life story, anecdotes about her DWTS partners and info about her teaching process.

"After about the first show on Dancing With the Stars, I can tell which of the celebrities is going to win,” Anna said. “Like from the first [Season 12] show, I said Hines [Ward] was going to win. Same with [Iraq war veteran] J.R. Martinez: I said he was going to win. By the second or third show, I pretty much name the finalists. I'm pretty much right about it."

Anna told the site she can make a similar quick assessment of her own partner’s potential. "When I get my celebrity partner, it takes about two days. I give it two days. Not the first day, because the first day, they're always confused and dumbstruck and just completely out of their element, so lost. But by the second day, if I see they've picked some stuff up and how quickly they've picked it up, that's when I can tell how good they're going to be."

Read the full story for a lot more from Anna, including a funny story about her Season 6 partner Steve Guttenberg falling asleep in the dance studio. Classic!
