Gilles Marini, the Sex And The City beefcake with enough sex appeal to make household appliances hot and bothered, is favored at even money to win this year's Dancing With The Stars, online casino Sportsbook.com predicted Monday.
The 33-year-old Frenchman is not just tall, dark and handsome -- he's spry as well, showing improvement on his already impressive ballroom skills every passing week. And he's in good hands, as well, partnered with two-time DWTS champion dancer Cheryl Burke.
His victory is certainly not set in stone, as the casino rates Bachelor castoff Melissa Rycroft (5-to-4) and Olympian Shawn Johnson (7-to-4) have also dazzled, albeit with a little less shine.
And then there's the long shots: Lil' Kim, who has raised her celebrity stock with a passionate, dedicated run on the show doesn't impress oddsmakers, who deemed her a 10-to-1 shot. Handsome country crooner Chuck Wicks, if you trust the oddsmakers, might be writing a sad song about his elimination, as he is a 30-to-1 shot to take it. And rodeo roughneck Ty Murray shouldn't hesitate to make reservations for next Monday night, as prognosticators made him a terminal 80-to-1 shot to win. But hey, at least he's got Jewel to sing him to sleep.
