If Alex is disqualified because of his hurt Achilles’ tendon, it will be the most devastating loss in So You Think You Can Dance history!

So sad! Alex Wong was THE contestant to beat this season on So You Think You Can Dance — but after the 23-year-old ballet dancer fell and potentially ruptured his Achilles’ tendon during a rehearsal for his Bollywood dance this week, he will most likely be disqualified from the competition.

When the show’s creator and head judge, Nigel Lythogoe, broke the news during the July 7 show that Alex will be disqualified if his Achilles’ tendon is torn, the world (and audience) groaned in disappointment. From the start of the season, Alex — a Vancouver, Canada native with flawless technique, great personality and an adorable face — was the dancer to beat.

What makes the situation even more devastating is that Alex quit his paying gig as a dancer in the Miami City Ballet –- one of the most prestigious ballet companies in the world — in order to compete on Fox’s hit dance series. Poor guy!

If Wonder Boy gets the ax (we’ll know tonight), that means the door is left wide open for the remaining eight contestants to steal the show. After her stellar performances last night, my money is now on 18-year-old contemporary dancer Lauren Froderman — but she’ll always be second best to Alex in my eyes!
