Skip to comments.DancingWTStars Bristol Palin to Win it All? Looking Possible...Week 8 Mon Live Thread 8pm
Posted on 11/08/2010 4:55:01 PM PST by Dr. Scarpetta
DWTS Season 11 enters its eighth week of competition tonight (Nov 8) and thus, the Bristol Palin enigma continues.
'Bristol the Pistol' has taken aim & shot down better qualified & much more fiercely talented candidates in her quiet wake to win the coveted mirror ball trophy.
But the burning question remains: how does Palin continue to linger on the competition & stir the ire of many DWTS fans who view the show as a talent (not popularity) contest?
While continually scoring at or near the bottom of the Judge's leader board since the onset of Season 11, Palin has somehow beat out competitors who have outscored and outperformed her, i.e., Florence Henderson, Rick Fox, and even Mike The Situation Sorrentino who exited the show at Week 4.
But what is really at the crux of the Bristol Palin matter is not the fact that Palin continues to receive enough votes to stay on DWTS. That part is evident.
The real question is why & where those votes come from. That is, are those votes generated by Sarah Palin supporters, or are they cast because people really like Bristol?
Hopefully, it's because people truly like 'Alaska's Favorite Daughter', find her refreshing and just want to see her win because of who she is.

From Bristol's Facebook page...
“Tonight, the Dancing With the Stars 2010 lineup results will be determined by instant dancing. The couples will only get their assigned song 20 minutes in advance, causing them to think on their feet for a strategy. But they will also get to make their regular preparations for another dance.
The final five have two chances to prove themselves tonight, as Season 11 enters the home stretch. After expectations were shaken up in the last two weeks, fans wonder if a third straight supposed contender will face elimination.”
She might make it to the top 3 but she won’t win.
If Bristol is voted off tomorrow, this may be our last week for DWTS. I doubt if there will be any interest after that.
It’s been fun!!
I don’t watch the show but I guess Bristol must be doing pretty well to still be on! She must be quite disciplined to be prepared every week—good for her.
She didn’t even vote last week. She’s an idiot.
Bristol’s Facebook Page:
She’llbe the runner up...And lose in the last dance...Its what they are being setup for...
Basically to identify with her Mom’s run for the Presidency in 2012...
So close, yet, so far...
Thats how I would play it out if I were the opposition...
Prior to last week, I gave all my votes to Bristol for two phone numbers and three email addresses because I believed she deserved to stay on based on her performance to offset the liberal judges.
I think she is better than Kurt and Kyle overall, but starting tonight, I am going to split my votes based strictly on the four best performers unless two are really bad abd then amongst the three best.
She entered DWTS without ever having a dance lesson, and she’s been working hard. No one ever expected her to win, but she came far, having to go up against Jennifer Grey and Brandy.
She looks lovely in that picture.
Let’s see what happens...
I thought so too!
Kyle is getting smooth.
The chubby disney kid is growing throughout this process...and losing weight.
He did a nice job.
Bruno says Kyle’s getting sophisticated...
As many of you know, I can’t stand the fact that she’s on this show. I think it’s everything that’s wrong with our popular culture. She famous for what? Being the daughter of a controversial public figure and for getting pregnant out of wedlock..and then we reward it. WE REWARD THE WRONG PEOPLE IN OUR RIDICULOUS CULTURE. I know, I know, I’m a hater.
He does look slimmer.
VOTING — HOW IT WORKS:
I m here. It’s cold.
I might watch from my comfy couch all bundled up.
Kyle has lost weight. He always had possibilities.
Great job Kyle.
Krankor, don’t be kranky. This is OUR fun thread. Please don’t spoil it.
It’s cold here too! Time for scarves and gloves!
Here we go with Jennifer’s crying...AGAIN
There's one or two of these cranks every week....:)
Thanks for posting from Bristol’s FaceBook page!
She was misunderstood, and taken out of context (of course).
I will see her later tonight here in CA, but Bristol IMO sure seems heavier that I though a young person working out would be on a heavy exercise dance show.
Breastfeeding cause all that?
What’s your point? A lot of people are voting for her. I’ve only watched a few of these shows, but I heard Rick Fox was voted off before her and I happened to see that performance and he was a hell of a lot better than she was. But then again, who cares? It just pisses me off who our society chooses to elevate.
I don’t put her quite in the same category as Megan McCain, but it’s pretty close.
i saw previews for Mark and Bristol on with Ellen Degenerate, she was asking if they were dating. Yikes!
HILDY GOOD GRIEF TAKE IT SOME WHERE ELSE. MAKE YOUR OWN THREAD AND TRASH ANYONE YOU WANT. SOME OF US ARE NOT EXACTLY SOCIAL CONSERVATIVES. I ADORE BRISTOL AND HER MOM,and Todd, and Piper, and Trig, and all her aunts and uncles, and all the critters up there. I am glad she had her baby, and mostly I am GLAD SARAH AND BRISTOL HAVE JOYFUL SOULS AND SPREAD JOY NOT NEGATIVITY.
Bristol’ comments really were taken out of context. I hope she stays on and keeps winning money. It will drive LIBERALS crazy!!
What dance is her first dance....?
She’s got a good sense of rhythm so the second part should be easier for her than the athlete.
She’s getting fewer votes from this week.
CELL PHONE IS BROKEN!
Yes, thanks for posting it. I wondered what had happened, missed the start last week.
EXCELLENT COMMENTS! I am also glad Bristol had her baby!!
Your cell phone is broken..that SUCKS!! I will make the calls for you. I already got my usual crew making the phone calls tonight
Say “CHEESE” with those nachos.
Joel Gray shows up...he looks rough..like he has aids...
Joel Gray is showing his age...sweet father/daughter moment.
Hey hater! LOL.
How are you and Sam doing? More to the point, call me, but on my landline. My cell is broken beyond repair and I was never able to retrieve messages.
Jennifer did a good job..I just can’t stand her constant whining and crying
I really liked Jennifer’s dance! Bruno mentioned Fred Astaire, and I was thinking the same thing!!
Oh man..here is more Poor Jennifer footage.
