Dancing with the Stars – Season 17 – Pre-Show POLLS!


Hey All! :)
Only 1 week remains until we begin season 17 of Dancing with the Stars. To say I am just a little excited would be a huge understatement.

A few little items of interest before I begin the polls…

* No more sky-box interviews for Brooke. Both Tom and Brooke will interview the celebs post-dancing on the floor right before the judges give out their scores.

* The troupe will only consist of four dancers this season- Gleb Savchenko, Lindsay Arnold, Henry Byalikov, and Witney Carson.

* Week 1 will be the Cha-cha-cha, Foxtrot, or Contemporary.

* Due to having no result show this season, NO one will be eliminated week 1 and all votes will carry over to week two where someone will be eliminated on performance night. I haven’t heard yet as to whether the eliminated couple will get to dance before finding out their fate or if the results will be revealed at the start of the show.

I thought it would be fun to get some pre-show polls going to see where our great fans here at MJ’s stand before the first couple hits the floor (and no, I don’t mean that literally). So, based on your general knowledge of these celebrities, their possible popularity, the chances that they might or might not have two left feet, and any other factors you want to consider, let’s do some polling.

As a quick reminder, these are our couples for this season…

Snooki & Sasha

Keyshawn & Sharna

Valerie & Tristan

Brant & Peta

Christina & Mark

Bill Nye & Tyne – new pro

Elizabeth & Val

Corbin & Karina

Amber & Derek

Bill & Emma

Jack & Cheryl

Leah & Tony

So, there you have it. Vote, comment, etc… and don’t forget to join me on Monday, September 16th as we kick off season 17!

    Each premiere season, the celebs will had 2 dance before one of them will be eliminated.

    So I guess, this season the celebs will also dance twice and at end of the second week, one of them will be out.

    I voted for Leah but my heart belongs to Bill Nye. I think the poll showing him leaving early is VERY, VERY wrong. The geek in all of us is going to carry him far – I think his fan base is going to be way larger than anyone expects.

    I was happy to see Valerie not getting the sympathy vote here, I hope it carries through to the rest of the voting public. While I do have great love and concern for her, this is a dancing competition and I personally feel it was crass and irresponsible of the show to even ask her to be on it.

    Miss Blue, I’m with you on people underrating Bill Nye. Not only is he the person I’m most excited for oddly, I’ve also seen far more internet excitement and hoopla over him than over the poll leader here Elizabeth. Which is not to say I have anything against Elizabeth or that I think she will do badly, but I hazard to think fans of the pros find these polls and the results skew more to that than anything having to do with the actual celebs in question. I just find it odd that Elizabeth has been a nonfactor on just about every site I’ve seen and here she’s the one people expect to win?

    I don’t agree on the crass and irresponsible part re: Valerie though. She’s given her reasons for why she’s doing it and I understand and respect them. Tristan already went to bat as well for his partner after a particularly nasty article about the whole situation.

    Val and Elizabeth for the win!!

    Though I have to say the poll results so far, without seeing anyone dance, look much like last season. Derek vs. Val. Wasn’t that pretty much all of last season? Just swap out their celebs.

    Bill Nye has a rapid fan base whom I believe will allow him to cruise into the finale
