Could Tonya Harding make the ‘Dancing with the Stars: Athletes’ final two — and win! — based on these telling stats?

Could Tonya Harding make the ‘Dancing with the Stars: Athletes’ final two — and win! — based on these telling stats?
Tonya Harding would probably tell you herself she’s the underdog in the “Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” final three. No one, not even she, thought she’d get this far. Our odds have her finishing in third, behind Josh Norman and frontrunner Adam Rippon, which would be a very good and respectable placement for someone many thought would and wanted to get the boot in the first episode. But could she actually go even further and claim the Mirrorball trophy? “Dancing” history shows that, more often than not, the final two tends to be a his-and-her battle.

In the show’s previous 25 seasons, 17 final twos have come down to a female and a male celebrity. The longest streak was eight seasons, from Season 5 through 12. Of these 17, the woman prevailed 10 times. While each season is a very specific case, this data isn’t that shocking; female dancers — whether the pro

My 5: ‘BoJack Horseman’ Composer Jesse Novak’s Favorite TV Themes (Exclusive)

My 5: ‘BoJack Horseman’ Composer Jesse Novak’s Favorite TV Themes (Exclusive)
Composer, musician and producer Jesse Novak -- yes, he’s related to B.J. from The Office -- understands what goes into an iconic TV theme. As the mind behind BoJack Horseman, The Mindy Project and Superstore, he’s created distinctive music that expands these TV worlds as well as the whimsical title theme for the latter, which is now in its third season on NBC.

A memorable theme, he says, “has its own life. It feels like a character, in a way, and it’s part of the universe. It gives you a feeling that you associate with what you’re watching.”

While he’s worked on a number of recent TV hits, Novak’s most memorable work has to come from the animated Netflix series, which recently returned for a fourth season in September and released a soundtrack of its score and original songs, including much of the music from the show’s celebrated underwater episode

My 5: Corbin Bleu’s Favorite Modern, Holiday Classics (Exclusive)

My 5: Corbin Bleu’s Favorite Modern, Holiday Classics (Exclusive)
Only 28 years old, Holiday Inn had been out for nearly 50 years by the time Corbin Bleu was born. But that didn’t stop the former High School Musical star and Dancing With the Stars contestant from stepping into the role made famous by Fred Astaire in Broadway’s musical adaptation of the film.

In fact, Bleu brought a modern flair to the character of Ted Hanover, a professional dancer who loses his partner to an oil tycoon and later sets his sights on friend Jim Hardy’s holidays-only hotel performer and love interest, Linda Mason. In one particular number from the Broadway show, “Let's Say It With Firecrackers,” Bleu performs a solo tap dance with the accompaniment of firecrackers with so much pizazz and style that even Astaire would have been impressed.

“We were really giving a new birth to the new number,” Bleu tells Et about working with choreographer Denis Jones to morph it for his body

We’re just eight days away from learning which Dancing With the Stars contestant will hoist that Mirrorball over his or her head — but first, they had to clear the hurdle of Monday’s semifinals.

The five remaining pairs performed two routines during Monday’s broadcast: For the first, each pro got to choose a song that they thought best encapsulated his or her partner.

'DWTS' Pro Lindsay Arnold Suffers Knee Injury, May Be Unable to Perform With Jordan Fisher
Bad news for Dancing With the Stars frontrunners Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold going in to the semi-finals.

Et can confirm that Arnold injured her knee during rehearsals on Sunday, threatening her ability to perform on Monday night's show.

A DWTS source tells Et, "Lindsay injured her knee during camera blocking rehearsal Sunday morning while working on a number with the troupe. Lindsay is hopeful she’ll be cleared to dance tomorrow, but it will likely be touch and go until showtime Monday."

Et can also confirm that Sharna Burgess is learning Arnold's routines in case she can't perform.

In a backstage video released by DWTS, the show's physical therapist tends to Arnold's knee.

"It felt like my whole leg gave out and stopped working," the 23-year-old pro dancer says, describing her injury.

"It's frustrating because it's the semi-finals and I want to dance it with Jordan. And I hope this doesn't stop me from doing that," she adds
