Ty Murray & Chelsie Hightower
Can you say "dark horse"? Sure, he was ways to go before challenging, say, Gilles Marini in shimmying, but you can't deny that this cowboy's been the surprise of the season. He didn't even flinch when Chelsie slipped on her dress. Ty is a perfect fit for the standard dances, but he'll need to shake it up, literally, in the Latin ones if he wants to truly be a contender.
