Jesse Metcalfe knew he was ‘never gonna win ‘Dancing with the Stars”

Published

on

Jesse Metcalfe had realistic expectations on “Dancing with the Stars,” but he still didn’t expect to be eliminated fourth. “I was pretty surprised,” Metcalfe told “Us Weekly’s” “Watch with Us” podcast, adding that he’s not upset he was booted. “No, I wasn’t upset — it’s a reality show! I had an unbelievable experience.”

Metcalfe and Sharna Burgess scored a 19 for their tango and ended up in the bottom two with Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd, whom the judges unanimously saved. The actor, whose highest score was a 21 on Disney Night, knew it would be tough to keep up in such a competitive group. “I thought I was gonna stick around for a couple more weeks,” he shared. “But with this cast, I don’t think I really had a shot.”

So who does he think will take home the Mirrorball? “I think Justina [Machado] is gonna win, but I’m also rooting for Johnny [Weir]. I think he’s really good as well. Those are my top two picks. AJ [McLean]’s a dark horse.”

One of the top scorers this season is Nev Schulman, whom Metcalfe calls a “gem,” but he thinks one thing might hurt the “Catfish” host. “Obviously, Nev is such a good dancer — such a good dancer — but people are not happy about the amount of dance experience that he has,” the “Desperate Housewives” alum said. “I don’t care that he has dance experience — I was never gonna win!”

Metcalfe also revealed that he was diagnosed with an arthritic hip three and a half years ago and has not yet had the recommended hip resurfacing surgery, so this was a lot more physical activity than his compromised body was used to. “It was a lot of wear and tear on this 41-year-old frame. But I thought I gave a very respectable showing. I loved every single minute of it,” he said. “I was more surprised by what an amazing experience it was and how incredibly rewarding it was. But by no means am I losing any sleep over getting voted off ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ But that’s not to diminish the experience. … From top to bottom, it’s such a fun experience, and it’s such a warm group.”

He added: “I love them all. No joke. What’s crazy about this group is that we got to spend very little time together due to the COVID protocols and yet I felt like the group gelled instantly. Everyone was very comfortable with themselves.”

Radhika is happily married to her British boyfriend Benedict Taylor who is a singer and she shuttles between Mumbai and London to balance her personal and professional life.

Radhika Apte in her most recent interaction with Vikranth Massey on social media from London has admitted that she does not believe in the institution of marriage.  When asked why she got married the talented performer replied that it is easier for married people to get a British visa and that’s why she and her man opted for it in 2012.

Radhika is currently chilling with Taylor in their London home during the lockdown and will soon start filming her next English film ‘Noor Inayat Khan’ in which she plays a spy based on a true story.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

on

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
