Dancing with the Stars Season 25 Cast Rankings: Who Will Win ... or Exit Early?

by at .  Updated at .

Dancing with the Stars Season 25 is underway, with a host of celebrities (term used loosely) ready to leave it all on the floor this fall.

Which cast members are most likely to emerge with the coveted Mirrorball Trophy, and who is most likely to be the first one out?

We've ranked the new competitors below, using their first-week scores as well as historical data and intuition, to take our best guesses.

Do you agree? Here's our list of DWTS celebs beginning with the least likely to waltz away with the crown, and ending with the favorite(s) ...

13. Barbara Corcoran with Keo Motsepe

Barbara Corcoran with Keo Motsepe
The Shark Tank star doesn't stand a chance this season, but she is having fun, and she ogled her partner, Keo Motsepe, so there was that. Her score of 14/30 is about what we'd expect throughout her (short) tenure.

12. Terrell Owens and Cheryl Burke

Terrell Owens and Cheryl Burke
The former NFL star has met his match on Dancing with the Stars. He and Cheryl were fun together, but there was a complete lack of technique, and he'll need to work hard to build about his rough debut score of 15/30 if Owens hopes to join the list of athlete champions.

11. Debbie Gibson and Alan Bersten

Debbie Gibson and Alan Bersten
Having battled Lyme Disease, Debbie had a poignant story and wants Dancing with the Stars to be her big comeback story. Unfortunately, fan support will only get you so far, and with a 17/30, she may face an early ouster even if the audience loves her.

10. Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd

Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd
Okay, so Nick Lachey said he would never take part on the show, which his brother Drew won way back in the day, and here he is all these years later. He has his work cut out if he wants to match his sibling, at least based on his inaugural score of 18/30. Of course, with his pop star pedigree and looks (he has barely aged), Nick may yet rise to the occasion.

9. Drew Scott and Emma Slater

Drew Scott and Emma Slater
Drew may be good at working in property, but his dance skills are just not all that. His first performance was filled with critical errors that meant he and Emma managed just 16/30, but like Nick, if he lasts a couple of weeks and shows real improvement, he could build a sizable fan base.

8. Sasha Pieterse and Gleb Savchenko

Sasha Pieterse and Gleb Savchenko
Sasha struggled with nerves and her performance took a hit in the process. Unless she manages to overcome this in the coming weeks, she will face an early exit from DWTS. A score of 18 is not catastrophic, but it does mean she has very little room to fall in subsequent routines.

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.
