Bristol Palin took a major leap out of her reserved shell tonight. She and Mark Ballas wowed the crowd and the judges on Dancing with the Stars tonight. She got her personal best score in the competition, a 23. After the marathon dance, she ended the night with a score of 28.
Bristol Palin, 19, is one of the youngest contestants on DWTS this season. She is also the only one with no experience dancing or performing. A lot of people have been pulling for her because she’s really stepped out of her comfort zone and shown a lot of personal gumption to put herself out there like she has.
On the other had, her shyness and reserve has held her back from letting herself go with the dances. She’s done well. Very well. But she’s not PERFORMED as some of the others have. You just have the feeling if she could get more confidence and get into the dance she’d be really good.
And tonight she was. She even beat out former dancer and actress Jennifer Grey who has seemed destined to win the competition.
Brandy won the night though. She did a fantastic tango and left everyone else in her dust in the marathon.
Now that Brandy is on top of the scoreboard for two weeks in a row, she might better watch her back for the up-and-coming most improved every week – Bristol Palin.
Oh. And Bristol and Mark Ballas say they AREN’T dating. Hmmm … just check out the chemistry between the two in the video below and tell me what you think.
