I'm kind of surprised with Pro Rising Star Results...although I didn't really know which couples would be dancing this category this year...or any year for that matter...I'm just always curious to see where the top couples in Pro Rising Star end up in Pro Latin (especially a year later...)

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Smagin...just a bit shocked that they turned pro a month ago and won rising star. They must have danced really well. Wonder how they will do in Pro Latin (I'm assuming they are dancing it?)

I don't think the results will be predictable because it depends on couples entering in Pro Rising Star category.
But, we can predict their placement in Pro Latin Category based on results from previous winners.

For example, Evgenij Voznyuk & Oksana Nikiforova placed 2nd in Pro Rising Latin category and made quarter final and semi in Jive in 2007 Blackpool. Other dances except jive they placed around 15-20th.
The Chinese couple, Danny and Jasmin who placed 1st in Pro Rising Category made Quaterfinal for all 5 dances in Pro Category in the same year. They placements for all 5 dances were around 15-20th.
