Even before ABC’s surprise hit Dancing with the Stars debuts for its new season Thursday night, pro-wrestling diva Stacy Keibler is favored to win, according to online betting sites.
Oasis Casino gives Keibler, of World Wrestling Entertainment, 2-1 odds to take the trophy, as does PinnacleSports.com. One reason for the stakes is said to be that she has a dancing background.
Trailing Keibler are George Hamilton (5-1), Tia Carrere (11-2) and Lisa Rinna (6-1), according to Pinnacle Sports.
Access Hollywood anchor Gisele Fernandez and Nick’s bro, Drew Lachey, are tied at 13-2, followed by P. Miller (7-1) and Tatum O’Neal (8-1).
The long shots: the NFL’s Jerry Rice (12-1) and “SportsCenter” anchor Kenny Mayne (14-1).
