The Dancing With the Stars Favorite Is ...

by at . Comments

Not only is Kendra Wilkinson perhaps the biggest name on Dancing With the Stars this season, she's the odds-on favorite to take home the Mirror Ball trophy.

That's according to Bodog (dot) com, which puts Kendra chances of winning the DWTS title at 3:1. You can also get the Knicks -12 vs. Cleveland tonight, FYI.

Kristin Cavallari, Mark Ballas

Seriously, you can bet on Dancing With the Stars Season 12 pairings. Ralph Macchio (7:2) and Disney star Chelsea Kane (4:1) also have decent odds.

Favorite or underdog, Kendra just wants to get out on the floor.

"It couldn't have come at a more perfect time in my life," Kendra says. "I'm almost back to my pre-baby body so I'm excited for all the costumes! I've always loved the show, so its really cool I get to be on it. I have a competitive streak in me."

"I'm so excited to get out there and compete!"

Also excited? Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Not only is he happy to be back in his element after The Bachelor: Ukraine experience, but he's probably so pissed that he's not among the three favorites to win. He loves a chip on his shoulder to motivate him y'know.


Wow just saw Hines Ward's intro reel and he looks pretty smooth. I'm starting to think he might be the dark horse in this race.


I Love Romeo I remember when he used to be on the show on nickalodeon. Hes sexy hes got my vote. LOL


@Free Britney: You didn't have to make the distinction clearer. I agree that Kendra is the most buzzworthy of the cast right now. I just think that it's weird that she overshadows people like Sugar Ray. Oh well,pop culture is kind of a crazy thing,never can tell who will rise to the top.

@freespirit114 - Point taken. Sugar Ray and most of the cast have far greater career resumes than Kendra. By biggest name, I only meant most pop culturally relevant and buzzworthy at this moment. I should have made that distinction clearer.


@ginaa: The tabloids got you. Good rule for life: any time Kendra is on a magazine cover, assume the opposite of the headline is true.


Wait. I'm a bit lost...or the tabloids got me! I thought she was preggers with Baby number #2?


How in the world is Kendra "perhaps the biggest name this season"? Sugar Ray Leonard is much more famous than she is. Everyone knows who he is and what he has done. Kendra is only famous to those who watch E! and know she used to bang Hugh Heffner.

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
