Dancing With the Stars - Men Versus Women: Is There an Advantage?

Aug 6, 2008
There are many different aspects of life where being a man or being a woman will give you an advantage. Is the television program Dancing with the Stars, one such situation where being of one sex will give you an advantage over contestants of the other? If it is, I do not see how.

It is true there have been more male winners of Dancing with the Stars than female winners but I do not believe they won because they were males. I have faithfully watched the program; week after week and season after season and do not believe the sex of the contestant even is a factor in their scores for a given week. In fact, I believe the only thing that the sex of the contestants helps to determine on Dancing with the Stars is who their partner will be.

There are those fans of the show that believe the male contestants have a distinct advantage on Dancing with the Stars over their female competitors. I will give some credit to the statement on the basis that the males have won four out of six seasons but that is not because they were males, it was because they did a better job learning the given dances.

That brings us to another speculation I have heard concerning the contestants on Dancing with the Stars. I have heard it said a few different times that the female professional dancers that they employ on the program are of better quality than the male professional dancers. I am not a dancer so the only way I can determine that is by the outcome of the shows. It would appear that the female dancers are better teachers but I am not saying they are better dancers.

If the females can teach the dances in question better than the male professionals, than that would give the male contestants an advantage. I am not saying it is true or not but I am just saying, there are people that believe the females are better at communicating the different dances so that would give the male celebrities an easier time learning the dances.

Some people have speculated as to why the men are winning more seasons then the woman at a fact that the men are stronger and therefore more able to take on the physical demands of learning the dances. There may be some merit to these allegations as both women that were the final winners of their seasons are very athletic by nature. Kristi Yamaguchi is a professional figure skater and Kelly Monaco is a very physically active actress.

Now what can be attributed to that fact that the male celebrities have had a winning record of two to one? Could it be the female professionals are more equipped or better at teaching dances? Or could it possibly be the public liked the male celebrities more to begin with so they had a better chance of winning overall approval? No matter why it happens, the fact remains, the males seem to have a 2 to 1 advantage when it comes to the possibility of winning the final episode of Dancing with the Stars.

No matter why it is true, the facts speak for themselves. The male celebrities have won four of the six seasons of Dancing with the Stars. Whether it be because they are stronger, have better teachers, or just want to win, will never really be known for sure. Watch the next season and come to your own conclusion.
