Who does Footloose star Julianne Hough think will win this season of Dancing With the Stars? You might be a little bit surprised by her answer. She dished a bit about DWTS on Wednesday at the Footloose premiere that was hosted by The Cinema Society.
According to Hollywood Life, one might expect that Julianne would say that her brother Derek Hough, along with Ricki Lake will absolutely win this season’s competition. But that wasn’t her answer. While she did admit that Derek and Ricki are both phenomenal dancers, and incidentally are the frontrunners at this stage of the game–she also touted another contestant as well.
“I mean I’m kind of biased. I think Ricki Lake and my brother are pretty great but she’s actually really great! I love J.R. … I think he’s really great too. So I think they’re going to be in the final together,” Julianne Hough says.
Of course Julianne Hough is a pretty good judge of who might or might not do well on Dancing With the Stars. The professional dancer actually won the competition in both seasons four and five with celebrity partners Apolo Ohno and Helio Castroneves, respectively. That sort of gives her a bit of firsthand insight.
Do you think Julianne Hough has narrowed down the likely winner on this season of Dancing With the Stars? She did an awfully good job not appearing biased, didn’t she? Of course she’d love to see her brother Derek Hough win–and why wouldn’t she? He’s her brother!
So which of Julianne Hough’s two guesses for DWTS winners do you think will go home with the coveted mirror ball trophy–or do you think someone else will win instead?
