Judge Helen Richey may think that Rachel Finch is too young to co-host Dancing With The Stars but online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au disagrees, and have priced her as a $1.80 favourite to pick up the gig.
Former So You Think You Can Dance Australia host Natalie Bassingthwaighte is next in the market at $4.00, while Fifi Box and Kylie Gilles have been given some chance at $8.00 ahead of Rebecca Judd at $21.
“While Helen Richey may not think Finch is ready, we certainly disagree and believe it would take something special for someone to beat her for the gig,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
“Here profile has gone through the roof over the last 18 months and she did a great job on the red carpet of the Brownlow Medal. She has already been on the show as a contestant, so she knows what it is all about.”
After dominating The Footy Show’s Player Review for a number of years, Port Adelaide’s David Rodan has been included as an outside chance at $501, alongside former Herald Sun Football Chief Mike Sheahan.
“I don’t think anyone really knew Rodan could dance until he starred in The Footy Show’s Player Review a few years ago. If they are looking for someone from left field he could be a good choice,” said Anderson.
“Mike may have a little extra spare time on his hands now, although reports from AFL Media Awards after parties suggest his dancing know-how might not be up to scratch!”
