Here we are with the first part of my 3 part series taking a look at this year’s finalists and their journey to the final. We will be taking them in the order of qualification which means we begin with Rose and Giovanni…..
As it probably should be we have to journey all the way back to week 1 of the competition for their worst routine. Their Jive during the first show of the series scored 22 points with the judges (6,6,4,6)
Rose and Giovanni have had all 4 judges reaching for their 10 paddles on two occasions this series. The first was the earliest maximum score ever and came in week 6 following their Tango (10,10,10,10)
The second occasion came during last weekend’s semi final. With Rose continuing her strong Tango performance this time during the Argentine Tango (10,10,10,10)
Rose and Giovanni have amassed a total of 447 points across 13 routines making for an average of 34.4. This is marginally the lowest of the 3 finalists but all 3 finalists do have similar averages
Number of times in the Dance Off
Rose and Giovanni are the only couple this series (barring Robert and Dianne who withdrew) to have never landed in the Dance Off this series
Can they win?
The better question is can they lose. Momentum has been building and building for this couple since about week 3 of the series and they have been the odds on favourites with the bookmakers for weeks on weeks now. 71% of visitors to this website want them to lift the glitter ball tomorrow night.
The final is a lot closer in terms of ability but in terms of public support, the journey this couple of been on, how Rose has embraced Strictly despite not being able to hear the music she is dancing to and the beautiful partnership Rose and Giovanni have formed its going to take a very strong final and a massive shift in the public opinion to see anyone but Rose and Giovanni crowned as champions tomorrow
