But that relies on the other person lowest down the judges being bottom of the PV as well. If Ricky is bottom of the PV, the he and not Mince is in the danceoff.

People on this Forum are generally pretty good natured, most can take a joke at their own expense and a good number congratulate winners even when they are on the wrong side.
Why are you so angry all the time? We are betting on an entertainment show. It's not life or death.

Good information is shared on here and i have made a lot of money on here not through my own ideas but listening to other people never in a million years would i have backed rachel at 33s in bb but five leaves and kitten pointed out reasons why she would win and many many other times a lot of the lads on here have helped me out and have nothing but praise for them. But coming on as you do saying i hope you all**sss your money up the wall cause chris cant win isnt exactly going to endear you to anybody.
Imo chris wont win but could he win ohhhh yes he could and at the 25s or thereabouts when people were giving there oppinions he was value and at 5s now still represents value.

That was a good price, but the whole point was you could back 4-6 @5-2 and 5+ @11-8. So if she did 6 you got paid on both. There was only a tiny downside if she walked before the 4th. I was trying to be really subtle as I'm sure they hate arbs between them and you don't know who is reading this.

The crucial information in this article (which is from the BBC press office not some 007 Daily Star sleuth) is that the BBC will never allow some fat hobbit to win their dance competition over celebrities that can dance well, a competition incidentally that happens to be their flagship program during its run.
