Rick Fox: Will He Win Dancing With The Stars Season 11?
Rick Fox is my dark horse pick to win Dancing With The Stars Season 11.
Rick Fox has been my dark horse pick to win it all in Dancing With the Stars Season 11 and so far he has proved that he has the right stuff to get the job done. Rick came out the gate strong. Prior to the premier episode he had been worried that the extreme height difference between he and his partner would cause there to be some awkwardness in his dancing. But he over came that and danced well.
Week 2 saw him overcome a second dilemma involving his height and by the time their dance had ended it was clear that he and partner Cheryl Burke had figured out how to deal with his height and even turned it into an asset. Fox has been on the rise ever since. His Week 3 score tied him for second with Jennifer Grey and the judges declared him to officially be a contender.
Rick Fox has all the attributes needed to win DWTS. He has natural athletic ability, charisma, charm and a large number of built in fans from his days as an NBA player. He also knows how to perform under pressure and how to turn that pressure into positive energy. More importantly he is having fun with it. You can tell just by watching him that he is having a blast dancing and is enjoying the moment. While the other athlete on the show, Kurt Warner, seems to struggle with staying loose and relaxed, Fox seems to be completely at ease when he hits the floor.
While he did fall back to the pack a little bit in Week 4, I would look for Rick to continue to make noise for some time to come. He has everything it takes to win, the only question that remains is: can he put it all together and consistently score at the top of the leader board? I have a feeling that the competitive spirit that helped him with three NBA championships with the Lakers will drive him to excel. Baring an injury or a catastrophic mistake I don’t see why Rick Fox can’t be one of the final 4 teams left towards the end of the season. If he can get that far, it is anyone’s game. There is some very tough competition this year, but he has the tools and ability to overcome it. At the beginning of the Dancing With the Stars season it looked like this was going to be the year of the women, but it looks like Rick might just be the guy to spoil their party.
