The casting on SCD is almost always excellent.

You will always get the occasional disappointment but in general it’s exemplary and perhaps the reason the show continues to do well.
Report Cider December 15, 2018 9:16 PM GMT
I feel it would be a mistake to think Joe done well just because of his social media background. For me Stacey and Joe dominated the series, at least the latter stages. Stacey was a tough opponent and a deserved winner. Joe was level for me before the top female angle became available.

I had two bets very early on Stacey outright and top female.

As I said on here if she avoided the dance-offs then she was pretty much a certainty.

It is becoming more and more a popularity contest. Either that or the judges are clueless. You look first and foremost at someone who has appeal and if they can dance a bit then you have a possible bet.
