Bristol Palin Dancing with the Stars Week 5 Elimination Pending? Live thread Mon. 8:00 ET
Associated Content ^ | 10/18/10 | Ryan Christopher DeVault

Posted on 10/18/2010 5:02:52 PM PDT by Dr. Scarpetta

Dancing With the Stars week 5 performance show is Oct. 18, and it could mean that Bristol Palin is eliminated on Oct. 19. The past two weeks have seen her and dancing partner Mark Ballas consistently at the bottom of the weekly scoreboard.

Both times Palin and Ballas have been just ahead of the lowest scoring couple, getting saved each week, despite being placed in jeopardy by the combination of judges' scores and audience home votes.

Last week, Palin and Ballas were eighth place out of nine couples, just ahead of The Situation and Karina Smirnoff during week 4 of Dancing With the Stars. It was down to these two couples at the end of the show, and it was The Situation and Smirnoff who were sent home.

The previous week, Palin and Ballas were just ahead of Margaret Cho and Louis Van Amstel, but it was Cho and Van Amstel who went home. Now all of the low-scoring couples have been voted off the show, leaving Palin and Ballas very vulnerable at the bottom of the scoring so far this season.

As with any reality competition show, things can shift from week to week, and it could lead to Palin and Ballas putting up their best scores of the season.

So far in the season, Palin and Ballas have averaged a score of 18 out of 30, which isn't good by any stretch of the imagination. Maybe this is the week where they really impress the judges, though, making their elimination a rash prediction.

The Oct. 18 Dancing With the Stars performance begins at 8 p.m. on ABC, with the promotions for the show stating that they will all be dancing to TV theme songs.

I think she’s too fat....Don;t mean to be negative. But I’m glad she’s getting out of the house. Talented?? Me thinks not. She needs to go to college and get a real skill.

Too fat? You want some skin and bones thing? Not me.

OH, that whole going to college thing is way over rated unless Dr, Lawyer, or some specific profession. In all the years I have owned businesses the college educated were the worst employees. In the computer store the ones who learned on their own and had true love and interest were far better.

She lucky “The Situation” was a competitor. Ignore the “fat” comments about her. Pleasingly plump, sez I.

I don’t think I would call her fat. She is a little overweight and I believe it keeps her slow on her feet.

To: anyone

Bristol’s quite good for an amateur dancer, and certainly better than at least half of the original 12 contestants.

Judges’ scores + audience votes supposedly determine winners & losers.

So far, dialidol.com has been good at predicting who’s sent home each week.

Dialidol.com has also, every week so far, ranked Bristol in the TOP 3 vote-getters.

Yet the last 2 DWTS results shows made it look like she’s ranked near the bottom.

The show generally refuses to reveal contestants’ true rankings, instead using the intentionally vague and maybe misleading term “in jeopardy.”

Are they trying to create the illusion that she’s unpopular when in fact she seems to be, so far, among the most popular with the voters at home?

Could we start a new thread and ban the word fat? Holy moly. She looks healthy! I think the kind of dance they do tonight should work for them.

From what I’ve read recently, this past year she has moved into her own apartment and has been attending college while working as a receptionist at a dental office, all while raising her son as a single mom.

I agree. People are mean to Bristol who never had a dance class in her life, and she’s not fat.

Good post. Also, for further evidence, here's a video interview Bristol and Mark gave to ET during their jive rehearsal for this week. Towards the beginning of the clip, Mark explains that the show has yet to reveal who is in the bottom two vote-getters, so there's no way to know. As he says in the clip, they've only been saved for last to get their results. ET Clip of Bristol and Mark

Could be. I liked the audience member who said last week the judges must be democrats. Which of course is true. She is good for just starting. I don’t have the rhythm to do the moves she can do. Genetically challenged, my other family members can.

Are the photographs posted thus far on this thread actually including Bristol Palin? Are these really Bristol Palin and male friend photos? I really have not seen so many photos of her, so I'm trying to be sure.

Okay, where are those professing Christians who previously (was it during a previous level of dance competition?) who were defending dancing, ballroom dancing, and even CHURCH/religious dancing in its modern form?

Please Christians, who will defend this half-naked, sensual, sexually suggestive (and intended to be so) hands on, laying body parts across body parts dancing?

I am wondering if this is taking place in churches, too?

Here! Comments were fairly nice regarding her musicality and lightness on feet....Not comfortable at performing in front of all the people.
