My reasoning went like this: Look at the bottom two places on the scoreboard, which were a five-way tie. Nick's safe because he's likeable, his brother won the whole darn thing, people are probably liking the husband/wife competition with him and Vanessa. Terrell's fan base might be motivated enough by him being in jeopardy last night. Derek's really, really likable and, as an audience, we are probably all more than a little in love with his mama, who's there this week. Drew is cute, brings a good personality to the interview portions and has no professional dancing experience, which can sometimes make us root for a contestant more. Plus, if you look at the contestants in past seasons similar to Debbie (Lea Thompson, Kim Fields, Danica McKellar, Melissa Gilbert, Shannen Doherty — all women we got to know originally as young women in the '70s and '80s) they tend to not make it much past mid-season. Jennifer Grey is the standout exception.
