Youth is taking the ballroom by storm as beloved TV stars and an Olympian suffer missteps.

<p>Tinashe, Milo Manheim and Juan Pablo Di Pace have emerged from a less crowded dance floor as the odds-on favorites to win “Dancing with the Stars.”</p><p>The singer, Disney star and “Fuller House” co-star are at the top of the “DWTS” leaderboard favored to take home the mirror-ball.</p><p>Multi-talented Tinashe, frontrunner since the beginning remains as <a href="http://https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4588&amp;book=BOVADA" rel="nofollow" title="Top-Rated Sportsbook">the best in Bovada odds</a> at +325. She and partner Brandon Armstrong have not disappointed with memorable and skillful dances that have resonated with judges and viewers.</p><p>Manheim (+350) is the breakout charmer in this cast and he and partner Whitney Carson are garnering increasing votes, despite the fact many in the show’s demographic initially didn’t know he was or had seen his “Zombies” feature on the Disney Channel.</p><p>The third couple in contention are Di Pace (+350) and longtime “DWTS” popular professional Cheryl Burke. The pair danced a quickstep on “New York City Night” to “42<sup>nd</sup> Street by Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, getting rave reviews from judges, especially Bruno Tonioli, who made the surprising comparison to the legendary Gene Kelly.</p><p>Already eliminated from the show are comedian Nikki Glaser and partner Gleb Savchenko in week 1 and blind Paralympian Danelle Umstead with partner Artem Chigvintsev, who went home last week.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Still not over that we got to share the stage with &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/donnyosmond?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@donnyosmond&lt;/a&gt; I’ll never forget this moment ❤️💫💃🏻 &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/DWTS?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#DWTS&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/DancingABC?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@DancingABC&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/It5Nn9CJXZ\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/It5Nn9CJXZ&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Danelle Umstead (@DanelleUmstead) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/DanelleUmstead/status/1048550432396570624?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;October 6, 2018&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;\n"}[/]</p><p>Umstead and Chigvinstev, who danced a cha-cha on New York night, saw scores that were in the middle-of-the-leaderboard. The pair also left under a cloud of technical difficulty that saw all of the reality show’s phone votes not viable for counting, leaving the judges’ scores and online votes determining who exited. Buh-bye Umstead.</p><p>She worked hard and Chigvintsev called her “an inspiration.”</p><p>Another strong contender the three at the top should keep an eye on is former Dallas Cowboy and Denver Bronco DeMarcus Ware (+800), who scored well the first week and received effusive praise this past week from “DWTS” resident grump Len Goodman. “You were good last week. I'll tell you what — you were better tonight,” he said.</p><p>Bottom dwellers on the show and in Bovada odds are Joe “The Grocer” Amabile at +4000, “Dukes of Hazzard” star John Schneider at +1500 and Nancy McKeon of “The Facts of Life,” at +1800, who has been hobbled by a foot fracture.</p><p>It is looking as if it is time for “Joe the Grocer” to return his cart.</p><p><a href="http://https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4588&amp;book=BOVADA" rel="nofollow" title="Check the Odds">The odds for remaining dancers </a>are gold-medal Olympian Mary Lou Retton (+1000), actress Evanna Lynch (+800), social media influencer Alexis Ren (+700), and country DJ Bobby Bones at +600.</p>
