Dancing With The Stars Results: Ralph Macchio Elimination Predictions

ralph macchio week 9Tonight I predict that Ralph Macchio will be voted off of Dancing With The Stars.

Going into tonight’s Dancing with the Stars results show it seems to me that the writing is pretty much on the wall. Having won the winner take all cha cha cha Chelsea Kane all but punched her ticket to the finals. With 73 points she is 13 points ahead of Hines Ward and 25 ahead of last place Ralph Macchio. If she is voted out tonight it will be the biggest shock in the DWTS history. Hines Ward, having just scored two perfect 30’s, is also likely in. That leaves it between Kirstie Alley and Ralph Macchio. One of them will go home and the other will move on to the finals.

Last night we got to know a little bit more about the DWTS dancers and where they come from.  Featuring interviews with their families, friends, co-workers and even former employers we found out where the stars came from and who they are. To me these video packages might help sway votes one way or the other. If you compare Ralph Macchio and Kirstie Alley’s stories, he is a guy who wanted to act his whole life, got a break at a young age, became a huge star for a while and never let it go to his head. He married his high school sweetheart, has two kids and lives a pretty normal life. He seems like a committed father and husband and an all-around good guy. Kirstie is from the Midwest, developed a terrible drug habit with cocaine, but eventually got clean and moved to Hollywood. The same week she got her first big role (in a Star Trek movie) her parents were in a car accident that killed her mom and nearly killed her dad. While Ralph Macchio  had his wife, kids and parents talking about him, Kirstie had her family as well as big stars like John Travolta and Kelly Preston. She seemed very much the celebrity TV and movie star while Ralph came off more like an average guy who happens to be an actor. Depending on your sensibilities, one of those life stories may appeal to your more than another and could sway some votes.

In the end I think that Ralph Macchio is the better dancer and deserves to go to the finals, but I think the Dancing With The Stars producers want Kirstie Alley because she is a bigger name and the more controversial choice which will get them more press. So my prediction is that Kirstie will survive and move on and tonight Ralph Macchio will get voted out of DWTS.

UPDATE: Ralph HAS been voted off of Dancing With The Stars 2011!
