Kate Gosselin avoided another vote off this week on Dancing With The Stars. Gosselin, the reality television star, has been bypassing what seems to be a logical exit from DWTS. It just crossed my mind that maybe the Kate Gosselin fan club is speaking up. Perhaps the Kate Gosselin fans are overwhelmingly keeping her around when other less known show participants are getting voted off.
Gosselin, who was the Kate on Jon & Kate Plus 8, hasn’t shown any fantastic dance abilities on Dancing With The Stars yet. In fact, the judges have absolutely blasted her abilities and performance for the most part. Jimmy Fallon even re-created one of her dances(Paparazzi) on his late night talk show because it was so dreadful.
Yet here Kate Gosselin is. Still in contention for the Dancing With The Stars big prize. Is the talent level down so much this season on Dancing With The Stars that Kate Gosselin actually might have a chance? Does Dancing With The Stars want to keep the ratings winner around for a few more weeks to milk her appearance because of the talk-ability?
Let’s get this straight. Kate Gosselin is the big name star on DWTS. How odd is it that reality television has moved into the forefront so much that one of it’s stars is considered the biggest star on a show like this? What has the world come to? That’s another story for another day.
Kate Gosselin has been the focal point of DWTS so far this season. She’s the one person people tune in to see how she is doing on a weekly basis. She’s the person people search for the morning after a DWTS episode to see her routine and if she got voted off yet. People who missed the Dancing With The Stars results show are anxious to know one thing-did Kate Gosselin get voted off yet?
Maybe people want to see her fail. Maybe people want to see her succeed because of her failed relationship with former husband Jon. Maybe people want to see a mixture of both. Whatever the case, Kate Gosselin appears to have staying power for now despite receiving very low votes on all of her dances. Maybe she won’t get voted off on any Dancing With The Stars results show any time soon.
This raises the question: Is Kate Gosselin so popular that she has a chance to win Dancing With The Stars? There are many Kate Gosselin fans out there considering her stint on reality television was earth shattering in terms of the ratings for a cable television show. Perhaps people want to see Kate Gosselin learn the ropes and end up the winner. It doesn’t seem likely that it would turn out that way. Kate Gosselin might as well be the Chicago Cubs trying to win the World Series. The longest shot in the entire field.
The Kate Gosselin Dancing With The Stars experiment shows very little signs of a blossoming dancer. Perhaps just the opposite. She’s not competitive with the top dancers on the show and doesn’t appear to be headed that direction. You never know how some contestants will grow. The only direction Kate seems to be growing in is growing tired of performing on the show. She just doesn’t appear to be completely happy doing the show.
The girl has a lot on her plate and I am surprised she actually took on a show with kids at home and another reality show on the horizon. Kate Gosselin has a complicated life and perhaps the stress is getting to her on the dance floor. Or perhaps she just isn’t a very good dancer. Whatever the reason, Kate Gosselin is still finding a way to stick around on DWTS.
It might be her fans that ironically keep her on the show that she’d probably rather just leave at this point. Perhaps it’s her critics who are giving her votes so they can continue to watch her struggle with dances that aren’t always meant for the ordinary housewife. Either way, it makes for good television and people are no doubt interested in how things will turn out for the reality television star. Perhaps she’ll get voted off on the next Dancing With The Stars results show. DWTS ratings won’t ever be the same.
