"I don't think I'm gonna win. We don't expect to win," Ricki told Ryan Seacrest of herself and partner Derek Hough, brother of Ryan's girlfriend Julianne Hough. "J.R. [Martinez] is going to win. I think Rob [Kardashian] did incredible last night and it was a really great show last night. I'm just happy to be part of it. I feel like I won already and I'm kind of resigned to taking second or third and that'll be just fine."
Why does she think she won't win? She talks about "the morale of the country" supporting a war hero like J.R., plus he's a great dancer and Karina Smirnoff did a great job with him. And although she supports her three-time winning partner, Derek, "I think it might be someone else's turn." She thought J.R. had the win for most of the season, but she gave him a run for his money.
Do you agree? Is J.R. going for the win? Listen to Ricki’s full radio interview to hear her say more sweet things about Derek. She sees great things for him and thinks he could be the next Rob Marshall, directing a feature like Chicago.
