Rob Kardashian Led The Scores Last Night, But Will Kim Kardashian Cost Him The Win?

November 22, 2011 01:50 PM by Lisa Princ

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!

    I think Rob’s performance last night was great. I don’t think the disgust people as a whole have for Kim will affect his outcome. Ijust hope his success is not exploited by that mother. He is well on his OWN way now. Somehow I don’t think He places Kim in front last night. That seemed more of a Kris Jenner plot. Anyway the cameramen made a geniune effort to not focus on her any longer than the other family members. That was very much appreciated.

    Who cares how many twitter fans Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, or Kris have, people are still sick of them!!! If you want to go by numbers, just take a look at how many signed the petition to get them off of TV, compared to the one started by their so-called fans! The world is sick of those money grubbing, fame whores, and if Rob happens to win, in which I don’t think he will, it still has nothing to do with the rest of that horrible family!

    Its just embarrassing what people in this country embrace. Kim Kardashian and the lot of them are grifters and it makes me sick to think they will just get richer off this crap. People GROW UP!! Reality tv is just that – tv?!?!?! He has a degree from a very good business school, he should be making the most of his education – not giving his mom 10% by hosting stupid alcohol parties in Vegas.

    Kim K’s appearance certainly changed my vote. Team JR!!!! Just seeing her made me change teams. Not a good move. KIM GO AWAY…..your not a nice person and I knew that before your FairyTale Wedding…..hehehe!

    Why would what’s going on in Kim’s life affect Rob and his partner on DWTS.That’s why they have judges. So that they can be impartial when people come up with bullshit like this question. If he and his partner win based on their dancing then why would anything matter. It should be all about Rob and his partner. Kim wished her brother well. Now let’s move on.

    Rob Kardashian is not the best dancer on “Stars” and if he wins it will be political. His scores of 10 10 10 last night were a joke and a put up job, he was not better than Ricki Lake or J.R.. I’m getting so disgusted with all the sham scores I won’t watch this show after tonight. People I’ve talked to say the same thing. What kind of contest is this?

    So glad that JR won but something smells about Rob Kardashian getting as far as he did. He had improved but not like some of the others. Apparently segments of DWTS will be part of KK Take NY – pimpmama Jenner at work and this really stinks.

    Well of course Reality TV magazine is going to say Rob Kardashian was the best…They have their Kardashian rose colored glasses on and the money that MAMAPIMP paid them!

    Rob should have been disqualified due to Kim’s Twitter post of supposedly Justin Bieber’s private cellphone number, then after an hour, Kim posted that is was a joke but the number being call was the voting line for her brother Rob on DWTS … a joke? I wonder how many votes he got with this stunt? I am thankful he didn’t win. I give him credit for what he did do, but you have to wonder about Kim’s joke. J.R. won, rightfully so, HE earned it!
