Using statistics to predict who will win DWTS :)

Is it possible to predict the Finalists on DWTS even before the dancers take to the floor?
Is being young and beautiful a sure ticket into the top 3?
I work for a data mining company, and as a fun project, we decided to see if we could use statistical analysis to predict the outcome of DWTS. --And we found some really cool stuff! We looked into what characteristics were most commonly associated with winning or being in the Finals, and more info like that. After we had done our analysis, I wrote an article all about it. It's really fun to read. If you'd like to do so, the article is at http://discoverycorpsinc.com/dancing_with_the_stats_article/ .
