Queen Bea Is Dancing With Stars Betting Favourite


SYDNEY, May 8 /MediaNet International-AsiaNet/ --

Beatrice Faumuina is Centrebet's favourite to win the second series of
Dancing with the Stars.

Queen Bea is $3.00 with the Australia-based bookmaker to succeed Norm Hewitt
as champion.

Former Shortland Street actors David Wikaira-Paul ($3.25) and Angela
Bloomfield ($4.50) are Centrebet's favourites but the betting agency does not
rate Lorraine Downes ($21.00) highly.

"Being a drop-dead gorgeous woman is a big advantage in most walks of life
but it's a major handicap if you want to win a Dancing with the Stars crown,"
says Centrebet's Gerard Daffy.

"Lorraine must have noted that Nicky Watson was the first celebrity voted
off New Zealand's debut series and another ex-Miss Universe (Jennifer Hawkins)
did not last long in Australia."
