William Levy On 'DWTS': And Then There Were Six...

The competition is getting serious on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," with six contestants left to vie for the Mirror Ball trophy. Monday night we shall see football player Donald Driver, Disney star Roshon Fegan, actress Melissa Gilbert, Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins, television presenter Maria Menounos and the Sexiest Man Alive William Levy sashay their way toward another week in the show's dreadfully deliberate plod toward victory.

Levy, of course, remains the audience favorite, but it's clear the judges have it out for our sexy man, continually giving him lower than deserved scores—despite ABC's obvious knowledge that audiences are tuning in just to see Will, by placing him near the end of the competition time after time. Last week, his perfecto performance of the Viennese Waltz was dissed by the judges with a 27/30 score. Hey, guys, bite me!

I think it's pretty clear that the judges are determined to award the trophy to histrionic cry baby Jenkins, who garners near perfect scores week after week. I suspect if she were to slip on a banana peel and crash into a chair, the trio of judges would applaud and say, "What a surprising, genius move, girl!"

Tonight, each couple will offer two dances, with Levy and partner Cheryl Burke first offering a Fox Trot. The second is deemed the "Trio Challenge," in which the six couples must pick a pro dancer who's not competing to perform alongside.

Levy and Burke will perform a "Paso Doble," whatever the hell that is. Tony Dovolani, who danced with tennis pro Martina Navratilova at the beginning of this season, is rumored to be their partner. Will tweeted that he'll be dressed up as his "favorite character." I'm hoping that would be Adonis, totally nude. In any case, watching him dance with another dude is certainly going to be the highlight of the night.

At this point, Roshon Fegan and Melissa Gilbert are clearly the underdogs. Time to go, sweethearts, so we can get down to the real goods: William Levy, that damn Katherine Jenkins and uber-macho Donald Driver. *
