The Curse of the First 10 on 'Dancing with the Stars'


This week on Dancing with the Stars, Mya and Dmitry Chaplin received the first 10s of season 9 for their Rumba, winning over Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba. But does being the first couple to get a 10 make them the frontrunners, or is it a bad omen?


History suggests that being the first couple to receive a 10 from the judges is not a good thing. In almost every season, the first couple to get a 10 didn't win, so Mya and Dmitry might want to get ready for a second or third place finish. Let's look at the Dancing with the Stars Curse of the First 10.


Season 2:


In week 2, Stacy Keibler and Tony Dovolani earned 10s from Len and Bruno for their Rumba, but finished the season 3rd.


Season 3:


In week 2, Joey Lawrence and Edyta Sliwinska earned 10s from Bruno and Carrie Ann for their Quick Step, but finished 3rd.


Season 4:


In week 4, Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson earned a 10 from Carrie Ann for their Paso Doble, but finished 2nd.


Season 5:


In week 4, Jennie Garth and Derek Hough earned a 10 from Len for their Paso Doble, but finished 4th.


Season 6:


In week 4, Jason Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska earned 10s from Bruno and Carrie Ann for their Viennese Waltz, but finished 2nd. Also in week 4, Shannon Elizabeth and Derek Hough earned a 10 from Len for their Viennese Waltz, but finished 6th.


However, in week 4, eventual winner Kristi Yamaguchi and partner Mark Ballas earned 10s from Bruno and Carrie Ann for their Paso Doble, breaking the curse.


Season 7:


In week 3, eventual winner Brooke Burke and Derek Hough earned a 10 from Len for their Viennese Waltz, breaking the curse again.


Season 8:


In week 4, Lil Kim and Derek Hough earned a 10 from Bruno for their Argentine Tango, but finished 5th. Also in week 4, Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani earned 10s from Bruno and Carrie Ann for their Lindy Hop, but finished 3rd.


So from these seven seasons, 10 couples have earned 10s the earliest, and only two of those have gone on to win. I don't like those odds, so it looks like Mya and Dmitry are destined for a second or third place finish. You may not like it, but stats don't lie, and that's just the Dancing with the Stars Curse of the First 10.
