The first episode of every season of Dancing With The Stars is my favorite. It’s always very entertaining to see which stars have the stuff to sashay all the way to the finale.
I hoped Nyle DiMarco would have the goods to contend, and boy does he ever. The 26-year-old America’s Next Top Model winner found himself on top of the leaderboard with his cha-cha. He has some fierce competition though from Wayna Morris and Ginger Zee. The three of them all scored 23. I could also see Marla Maples, Jodie Sweetin or Antonio Brown becoming threats as well.
Sadly, I can’t say the same for Geraldo Rivera or Mischa Barton. Those are my two picks to be in the bottom next week. Hopefully, Rivera is the first elimination because I really want Mischa to stage a comeback. I thought the judges were unfairly harsh to her with their critiques. It was only the first week. What did they expect?
In case you missed it, check out Nyle’s cute little cha-cha below. He’s so God damn adorable. With his backstory, million dollar smile and sex-on-a-stick appeal, he’ll definitely become a fan-favorite this season. Let’s hope that’s enough for the win. I’d love for an ANTM alum to take the mirrorball.
