Women scream for him. Judge Bruno Tonioli drools over him. People Magazine put him on their cover. And he dances pretty well. So is William Levy going to shimmy away with the Dancing With the Stars Season 14 Mirror Ball trophy?
Today, Season 13’s Chaz Bono talked to Access Hollywood about being honored by GLAAD and they asked him who had the best chance of taking home this year's win.
"I think who could take it home is William," Chaz said. "The women just love him."
Also today, pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy — who is still competing on this season with Melissa Gilbert — posted his weekly TV Guide blog, in which he named William as one of the Season 14 frontrunners.
"I am not a fan of the Dance Duel," Maks wrote of the bottom two dance-off which debuted on Week 5. "I do not want to be any part of it ever. Yes, it prevents the possibility of somebody better going home, but what if someone who is ‘should be in the bottom two’ doesn't end up there? What if two front-runners, like Katherine and William, end up in the bottom two? What will the judges do then? Save both of them?"
So even Maks sees William and Katherine Jenkins as frontrunners. Jaleel White told Wetpaint he sees Katherine and Donald Driver as his biggest competition, but maybe he too should add Loverboy Levy to the list.
On April 18 we posted a mid-season poll asking YOU who will win Season 14 and so far the votes are going to ... Maria Menounos! Second choice at this point is Katherine. William only has (ouch) 5 percent of the vote at this point. But the poll is young, so vote for your favorite here and brag about being right if your pick hoists the Mirror Ball trophy.
