Even Hope Solo thinks Hope Solo is a long shot to win Dancing With the Stars Season 13. J.R. Martinez is the acknowledged frontrunner, followed by Ricki Lake. That's the running theory at this point, and don't look to Hope for a burst of dark horse optimism.

"No," Hope told Entertainment Tonight when asked if she thought she would win. "But we might as well go down fighting, right?" Her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy — who was standing right next to her in Week 9 rehearsals — just mock-sighed and covered his face.

Hope said at first she wasn't sure she fit into the DWTS mold, but eventually she let competitiveness get the best of her and she was like "let's win this thing." It's still possible, even if the chance is pretty remote. Check out our three reasons Team MakSolo could still pull off a win.
