In case you had any doubts, Monday’s performance show should have sealed the deal:Former Bachelor star and former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Melissa Rycroft will face French actor/underwear model Gilles Marini in Dancing With the Stars’ final two — after they get past the “finals” nonsense with three contestants early in next week’s show. (“Finals,” by definition, should mean the final two.) Count on it.
I’ve been saying this all season — as maybe you have too — and now we’re about to be proven right.
If you doubt it, let me know. But I doubt that you do. Whoever goes tonight, and then whoever goes early next week, Shawn and Ty are toast — Texas toast, in his case. That’s life among the bouncing disco ball trophies.
Now, as to whom will win, I’d prefer Gilles — the better dancer — but I’m betting Melissa — the sentimental crowd favorite with the built-in fan base from a show which aired on this same network. But you never know in show biz.
