LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- On this season’s “Dancing with the Stars,” Brandy and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy will be the champs… at least, according to a popular oddsmaker.
The folks at Bodog.com have tapped Brandy and Maksim as the early favorites to waltz away with the mirrorball trophy this season, giving them 3:1 odds to win it all.
But don’t engrave Brandy and Maks’ names on the trophy just yet.
Former “Dirty Dancing” star Jennifer Grey and two-time “DWTS” champ Derek Hough not only were given the second best odds, at 7:2, but the duo trumped the field as the AH Nation’s pick as the early favorite to two-step their way to victory, claiming 38 percent of the vote in our recent poll.
A pair of MTV reality stars (past and present) came in at third and fourth in Bodog’s odds, with “Hills” beauty Audrina Patridge tapped as a 6:1 favorite and “Jersey Shore’s” ab-tastic Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino close behind at 7:1.
However, Access Hollywood’s AH Nation had a differernt opinion on the MTV personalities.
While “The Situation” finished second to Jennifer Grey in the AH Nation poll for early favorites, Audrina found herself towards the back of the pack, garnering only 7 percent of the vote.
According to Bodog, David Hasselhoff, Michael Bolton and Margaret Cho all have 10:1 odds to be the champ, while Kurt Warner and Bristol Palin found themselves looking at a potentially big pay day as 20:1 long shots.
Bringing up the rear? Former “Brady Bunch” mom Florence Henderson, who not only finds herself with the worst odds, at 25:1, but also tied with “That’s So Raven” former star Kyle Massey as the fewest vote-getters in the AH Nation poll, with both “Stars” failing to record 1 percent of the overall vote.
