Sarah Palin ‘Excited’ For Bristol’s ‘DWTS’ Debut

Sarah Palin is super pumped to watch her daughter Bristol Palin hit the dance floor on Dancing with the Stars.

Bristol tells OK! magazine:

I decided to do the show to get out of Alaska for a few weeks, do something fun and positive and have a good time. My mom’s excited for me. She knows this is real family entertainment.

Bristol will be competing against The Situation and Audrina Patridge (amongst others) on the upcoming season of DWTS.

Bristol isn’t the first politically-connected DWTS contestant to compete on the show: Former politician Tom DeLay and conservative pundit Tucker Carlson have both danced on the show. Watch Tom dance a bipartisan samba below.

Maybe Bristol will break out in a politically-themed dance on the show!

She was most recently in the news for getting re-engaged to baby daddy Levi Johnston earlier this summer. The two called off the engagement several weeks later. Levi is currently filming his own reality show which will follow him as he attempts to run for Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.

Will you root for Bristol on DWTS? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
