Can Tinashe end up victorious?
Tinashe is the gambling favorite and, given her popularity, it’s easy to see why.
Half of this point totals are made by enthusiasts (the other half by judges) and Tinashe boasts more than two thousand Instagram followers. Looking deeper indicates that Bovada shouldn’t be so bullish about her possibilities, however.
No first time pro dancer has maintained the title since Season 4. Tinashe is teamed up with professional dancer Brandon Armstrong, who’s making his debut in the show. No first time pro dancer has maintained the title . All of the 26 first timers that have attempted to taste victory since 2007 have swallowed the bitter pill of defeat.
Bearing that in mind, let us scrape Tinashe off the list of contenders.
