The "Dancing With the Stars" 2013 lineup was announced for season 17 of the hit show just last week, and already there's favorites forming among fans. In addition, odds have been released for who will win from the "DWTS" season 17 cast.
According to a Sept. 11 report from Wetpaint, one of the favorites to win season 17 is Corbin Blue. He recently was spotted outside the "DWTS" studio in L.A. showing off his biceps for eager photographers. Blue was seen in a pink tank top, which has many fans of his, and the show anxious to see how he does. An earlier report even noted that his fellow Disney star, Ashley Tisdale, is rooting for him. Tisdale said in an interview, "I’m excited because he’s an amazing dancer. He’s really good. I hope he wins!"
Bleu, a former star from "High School Musical," is actually considered the favorite to win by oddsmaker Bovada Sportsbook. He's currently carrying odds of 5 to 2, followed by singer and TV personality Christina Milian at 13 to 4. "Glee" star Amber Riley has odds of 11 to 2, followed by former "Saved by the Bell" star Elizabeth Berkley at 11 to 2. Rounding out the top five favorites is actress Leah Remini ("King of Queens") at 7 to 1. It's also worth mentioning that reality TV star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is the sixth favorite to win.
It's also worth noting that Bill Nye "The Science Guy" and Valerie Harper are both favorites but not in terms of odds. The two stars have fan followings, or are sentimental favorites, but both are tied at the bottom of the list with 50 to 1 odds to win, along with comedian Bill Engvall.
"Dancing With the Stars" season 17 will premier on Monday, Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. EST on cable and satellite providers via ABC and affiliates including Roanoke's WSET 13.
