Here we are with the second part in my four part guide where I look at each of the finalists and their Strictly journeys so far. As always I run this series in the order of qualification for the final and so we continue with Hamza and Jowita
You have to go all the way back to week 2 for their lowest scoring routine. Their Jive scored 24 points with the judges with Craig in particular being unimpressed (4,7,6,7)
Hamza and Jowita have fallen short of a maximum on two occasions with Craig (surprise surprise) being the denier. The first occasion was in week 4 when their Salsa wowed the judges and will be performed again in tonight’s final as the judges pick (9,10,10,10)
There was a long wait for their second near maximum which came during last weekend’s semi final and their Charleston had everyone bar Craig reaching for their 10s (9,10,10,10)
Hamza and Jowita have amassed a total of 453 points from 13 routines making for the same average of 34.8 as Molly and Carlos however Hamza and Jowita have scored one point more than their fellow finalists making them marginally the best dancers on average
Number of times in the Dance Off
Hamza and Jowita are one of two finalists to have never faced a dance off
Can they win?
Hamza and Jowita have topped most of my polls this series including the current one asking which of the finalists you want to win which they at the time of writing have 41.61% in. This series really seems to be theirs to lose and currently looks like a two horse race between them and Helen and Gorka.
But Helen and Gorka are on the rise and have actually swapped places with Hamza and Jowita in the current poll on a few occasions so the glitterball is not Hamza and Jowita’s quite yet and they need to come out with a strong final to maintain the slight advantage they have in the public vote if they are going to win
