NFL player Hines Ward is the heavy favorite to win Dancing With the Stars, but Karina Smirnoff thinks that actress Chelsea Kane has a shot at stealing the mirror ball trophy from the football star.
“I think it’s going to be between Hines and Chelsea, and I won’t be surprised if Chelsea wins even though everybody expects Hines to win,” the reality show dancer told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive video interview, at the Grand Opening of The Market at Santa Monica Place.
“Hines was first on the leader board almost every single week.
“So it would be somewhat predictable for Hines to win, I don’t know how it’s going to go, but it’s going to be between him and Chelsea, I think.”
The Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver and Disney beauty battled it out with fellow finalist Kirstie Alley on Monday’s finale of the hit ABC show, with the results being announced Tuesday.
Said Smirnoff: “At the end of the day, the judges are there to help you get better, give you constructive criticism and to make good TV and sometimes they make really good TV!”
