"Dancing with the Celebs"
10 celebrities vie in this year's "Dancing with the Celebs" TV show.
October 16, 2006
From the introduction, the original 10 contestants on "Dancing with the Celebs" were eliminated one per weekly show until a winner was declared. In each of clues 1, 5, and 10, eliminated contestants are named in three sets in consecutive order. Since George isn't West (clue 8) and Sophie isn't the TV chef (13), there is no overlap between clues 1 and 5. Since neither Rowe (4) nor George (23) is the country music artist and since Lisa isn't Rowe (4) and isn't the TV chef (16), there is no overlap between clues 1 and 10. Since Lisa isn't West (8) and Sophie isn't the country music artist (13), there is no overlap between clues 5 and 10. In each of clues 1, 5, and 10, then, three consecutive eliminations with none of the dancers in common among them are listed: George, Rowe, and the TV chef in clue 1; Sophie, the bullrider, and West in clue 5; and Lisa, Newman, and the country music artist in clue 10. In some order, the three in one clue must be the 1st-3rd eliminated, the three in another clue must be the 4th-6th eliminated, and the three in the other clue must be the 7th-9th sent home, with the 10th person the winner. By clue 25, the last four celebs in the contest were Dave, Jason, Woods, and the romance novelist in some order. If the three in clue 1 had been the 7th-9th sent home, with George 7th, Rowe 8th, and the TV chef 9th, since Woods isn't George or the TV chef (15), Woods in clue 25 would have won "Dancing with the Celebs"--no (6). If the three in clue 5 had been the 7th-9th sent home, with Sophie 7th, the bullrider 8th, and West 9th, since Jason isn't West or the bullrider (14), Jason in clue 25 would have won the contest. However, given clue 9, there is no way Dave in clue 25 can fit this arrangement. Therefore, the three in clue 10 were the 7th-9th sent home, with Lisa 7th, Newman 8th, and the country music artist 9th. Since Newman isn't Dave or the romance novelist (11), Newman must Jason in clue 25. Since Woods didn't win "Dancing ..." (6) and isn't Lisa (16), Woods in clue 25 is the country singer. By elimination, then, Lisa is the romance novelist; and Dave won the event. Either the three in clue 1 or the three in clue 5 were 4th-6th eliminated with the other then 1st-3rd. If the three in clue 1 had been the 4th-6th sent home, with George 4th, Rowe 5th, and the TV chef 6th, the three in clue 5 would have been sent home 1st-3rd, with Sophie 1st, the bullrider 2nd, and West 3rd. However, since George isn't Ashford (23), there is no way for clue 17 to work given this arrangement. Therefore, the three in clue 5 were sent home 4th-6th, with Sophie 4th, the bullrider 5th, and West 6th; while the three in clue 1 were the 1st-3rd sent home, with George 1st, Rowe 2nd, and the TV chef 3rd. Since Sophie isn't Kershaw (18), by clue 3, George is the soap opera star, Maria sings oper, and the TV chef is Kershaw. Since Ashford isn't the bullrider (22), by clue 17, Nick is the bullrider, the game show host is West, and Ashford is Lisa. Sophie is the magazine editor and Nick Cassidy (19). Forbes didn't win the contest (20) and isn't the magazine editor (7); Forbes is George. Dixon isn't the magazine editor (7) and is then Dave; Sophie is Steele. Maria isn't the basketball player (12). By clue 24, then, Jason is the basketball player and Sandra is Woods. Dave Dixon isn't the political commentator (2) and is the stand-up comic, with Maria the political commentator. By clue 21, Celia is West and Harry the TV chef. In sum, the results of this year's "Dancing with the Celebs" are, in order of being sent home to the contest winner

  • 1st - George Forbes, soap opera star
