So You Think You Can Dance Odds: Matt Leads A Field Of Confusion

Well, SYTYCD has launched its series of live shows with all the aplomb of a small custard pie and with the auditions of Britain's Got Talent now being shown, a Royal Wedding impending, Eurovision and the barbecue weather installed, it is difficult to see how its ratings are going to improve.  Bookmakers Paddy Power are however optimistic by following the debacle with a book in which they now have Matt in pole position at 7/1.

Unlike many of the other reality shows, not only is the format confusing, with all the areas of dance covered and the seemingly arbitrary choice of partners, but the prize is vague.  The world is not aware of past winners' success or career path, so apart from adding the participation of a TV show to their CV's the driving force to their arduous practising is indistinct.  Arlene Phillips certainly enthuses as energetically as is possible and is without doubt in her comfort zone, but despiste her passionate diatribes, she can not carry the show alone.  Cisco is certainly colourful, visually and verbally but the manufactured war with Louise Rednapp is small fry compared to judging panel spats on Strictly Come Dancing, The X Factor or even Dancing On Ice.

Yes Nigel Lythgoe presides over the event, but are his musings really of great interest or import? Britain's Got Talent by comparison, having stepped away from Simon Cowell and Piers Morgan was definetly taking a risk, but the inclusion of Michael Macintyre was a stroke of genius that will draw viewers, although David Hasselhoff may cause some consternation. SYTYCD is of course hosted by seasoned presenter Cat Deeley, who has always been a successful frontperson so that should add a bit of sparkle, but now that she spends so much of her time pursuing her career in the States, she too seems a little removed from the proceedings.

Those who are watching the programme probably fall into a niche market who have a greater understanding of the art forms on show, but when pondering over a potential punt be sure to factor in the amount of air time contestants are receiving outside the programme, it will always be a factor in determining outcomes.  Anyone who has equal ability in the smile and humour stakes as in the height of their jumps wll bound more easily to the endgame.  The odds are uncharacteristically long for a reality show, even at this stage, which again may reflect the confusion that surrounds the whole show!
