Rob Kardashian topped the scoreboard last night on Dancing With The Stars, but does he actually have a chance to win? Despite Rob Kardashian‘s great scores, we know that the show can also be a popularity contest, and with the number of Kim Kardashian haters growing by the minute, could Kim have cost Rob the win tonight? Read on for more…
Yes, Rob Kardashian finally upped the ante last night on Dancing With The Stars, and of all the finalists, he has proved to be the most improved contestant, but does he have a chance at winning? With the revelation of all the Kardashian boycotts going around the web, is it possible that Kim Kardashian could cost Rob the win? Do you think that all the Kardashian haters may be voting for someone else in order to make sure that Rob Kardashian does not win? Sounds possible, but sources close to the family are certain that the Kardashian family has more fans than they have haters.
In fact, one friend of the Kardashian family told The Huffington Post today: “This has not been an easy few weeks for the family, but you have to remember that on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ you are voting for someone to win, not against anyone,” adding: “And with over 11 million Twitter followers for Kim alone, five million for Khloe, four million for Kourtney, 1.5 million for mom Kris Jenner and over 2.4 million followers himself, Rob’s army of fans will mobilize to vote, dwarfing any grassroots support Ricki Lake and J.R. Martinez have. Plus, if Rob was concerned about ‘the negative Kim effect,’ he wouldn’t have brought her out to sit front row at the finale.”
If the Kardashian family so has so many fans, they better hope that all those fans have voted because in the end, it is still partially a popularity contest. Another source told the paper: “The public has turned on Kim and her entire family after feeling tricked by her fairytale wedding. That has to have an impact on her brother.” For all we know, that public that has turned on Kim Kardashian, could have very well turned on Rob Kardashian also, in turn voting for either J.R. Martinez or Ricki Lake just to ensure that Rob Kardashian does not win.
While we certainly do not think it would be fair for anyone to boycott Rob Kardashian, we don’t think he was the best this season either. Regardless of what happens, we are sure the Kardashian clan will have something to say about it. What do you think about Rob Kardashian? Did he step up to the plate last night? Will his sisters help him win or lose the mirror ball trophy? Let us know who you voted for – comment below!
