Seriously though George for a minute please.I do think it's a shame that in what is a dancing competition it turns into a popularity thing with of course the women voting deliberately for the good looking/hunky male.Same as X Factor. We're really looking for the best singer in a singing competition but again little girls fancying the boys, women voting the hunkier guys.You get the point. I just think it's a shame really I do.
All of these things are popularity contests though Lou. You have a bit of a block with this
The one most popular at dancing wins, not always the best dancer
Uh oh, I feel we have gone back in time

A friend who watches SCD says she likes watching Louis and DVO best but she would never vote for DVO because she’s always top of the leader board so can’t get in B2 and even if she did she would be saved. I just spoke with her today. It seems obvious now.If DVO wins it would be good for most on here because it would help cure you of group-think. You should therefore hope for it happening.
We had Rose for that, don't need DVO

I just wish the judges voted the winner and take away the publics biased towards the acts.

"Oh the old argument that people dont vote for people because they know they don't need the vote bullsheeit. Turned out well for Ella didn't it?"I heard it today from a 45 year old MEM who votes. One person doesn't mean anything I know, but it made me think - with DVO they already know that she's got full marks in half of it and is safe. They didn't know that with Ella.
Its just an excuse to why they haven't picked up the phone and voted. Top of the leaderboard doesn't necessarily mean safe in these contests.
According to the Star leak - in week 4 when DVO wasn't top of the leaderboard she fell down to 9th in combined scores.
Occams Razor here - she isnt getting votes because shes not popular

Henry I'm not having a go but the argument about not being motivated to vote for contestants at the top of the leaderboard is trotted out every year on SCD after a shock elimination or bottom 2 placing. Its not like your MEM had a revalation, no offence.Its uncanny how many on here have already concluded that a person isn't popular or well liked in advance of each shock result ie Kimberley this year being the first, was the person I and others have been most strongly against (at the price) since the start.The Star leak may be confirmation bias but the only way DVO has a chance imo is if the judges go back to the treatment of Louis of the two weeks prior to the Charleston, and that his performances are as lacklustre as his Wembley one. Highly unlikely to me.
Quite likely to me. But Louis's vote just got bigger when they slagged him off
They need a final with him in surely? Henceforth he wins

Hi Bex,it was meant, GB and I were discussing the chances of DVO being 2nd or top female and I gave a scenario of how it could be achieved by getting rid of one of her perceived dangers
