' first elimination night scheduled for this coming Tuesday, gold-medalist Kristi Yamaguchi is looking utterly golden, at least judging by
TVGuide.com's first Power Rankings reader poll of the new season
. Kristi and pro partner Mark Ballas took an early lead and held onto it to come away with 31.2% of the votes. Placing a distant second were Cristián de la Fuente and Cheryl Burke.
Facing an uphill dance going into Monday's performance show are Penn Jillette and Kym Johnson, who came in last with less than two percent of the vote. Can the illusionist work some magic and overcome that rough start?
The complete rankings:
Cristián de la Fuente
and Fabian Sanchez
Marissa Jaret Winokur
Louis van Amstel
What's your take on this first tally? Is it still too early to serve as any indicator of long-term success?
