Disney might be the most magical place on earth and Disney night may start off being the most magical night of competition on “Dancing With the Stars.” However, the magic won’t last for at least one of the Season 28 teams hoping to win the ABC series’ coveted Mirrorball trophy.
The fifth week of competition is set for the nine remaining teams on the show, and they are really going to have a chance to shine with their newest routines as they hope for some of their best scores yet by impressing not only the judges but the live voting audience as well. With Disney taking over the ballroom, the pressure may be higher than ever to perform at their best if the Season 28 teams want to stay in the competition.
While some teams likely have a high chance of coming back, like front-runners Lauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko, Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber, Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten and Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson, a few others may not find themselves as lucky, and their fates may be left up to a little bit of fairy dust being blown in their direction.
Whether they’re seeming to not impress the viewers or scoring low with the judges, these teams seem to have the highest chance of being eliminated on Disney Night.
Sadly, after dominating the judges’ leaderboard for a couple of weeks and even tying for the top spot during Week 3, things turned a little bit south for #TeamThatsWhatKateSaid during their Argentine Tango. After receiving critiques from the judges about her facial expressions and for generally being off, it’s a big blow to Kate Flannery and new pro Pasha Pashkov. However, considering how well they’ve been doing with their other routines, the two likely will still live to see another week of competition.
With Lamar Odom officially out of the competition now, #TeamSweetandSpicey could begin to find themselves in more trouble. When the former NBA star never could really muster up more than 4’s from the judges, it gave Sean Spicer and Lindsay Arnold a bit of a safety net, because there was less a glare on them when it came to their less than stellar scores. They fell pretty low on the leaderboard last week, and while he may still have some followers voting for him, if his scores can’t improve, his days will officially be numbered, because if he makes it to the Bottom Two with another team that has been faring far better, he is less likely to see himself saved by Carrie Ann, Len and Bruno.
However, despite having their first breakthrough performance of the season and not getting a five from Len for the first time in Week 4, things could be reaching the end of the line for Karamo and Jenna Johnson, a.k.a #TeamJeranamo. After scoring sevens across the board (including from Len) for their Tango, things seemed to finally be going the “Queer Eye” hosts’ way—but it doesn’t appear that America has the same confidence in him, as he wound up in the Bottom Two alongside Lamar. Should he continue to not receive a large portion of viewer votes and he winds up in the Bottom Two again, he may not be so lucky with the judges a second time around.
“Dancing With the Stars” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC.
