Bristol Palin might have a new man in her life, but she's got some work to do before winning his family’s approval.

The former Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars contestant has been quietly dating professional snowmobiler Joey Junker, 30, according to Us Weekly.

But Junker's sister, Megan, told Celebuzz: “In my opinion, they’re not dating until she comes home!”

Megan Junker Ferguson said Junker spoke to her about Palin, the 22-year-old daughter of former Alaska Governor and Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

“I have heard that rumor from his lips," Megan told Celebuzz. "But I have not met her [Bristol] yet... How in depth it is, I don’t know. But as long as he’s happy, he’s got his life. He’s a big boy."

The sister added: "I will say he’s a good guy.”


News of the twist in Bristol's love life came at an interesting time; on Oct. 28, her ex and the father of her 4-year-old son Tripp, Levi Johnston, married girlfriend Sunny Oglesby in front of 100 family and friends at Settler's Bay Lodge in Wasilla, Alaska.

Bristol should not expect a similar fortune, Megan warned.

“He [Joey] hasn’t brought someone around since his last girlfriend, who I adored,” Megan said of her brother, who rides for the Slednecks race team and lives in Anchorage, Alaska.

“Until he marries these girls, I don't care," the tough-talking relative added. "He’s young so that’s not going to happen anytime soon. He’s got a lot going on.”

    We know that Sarah-Todd-Bristol and Willow have now all had plastic surgery. Has Piper? Grandpa Heath?

    Can't imagine any guy who would be interested in this broad because she is so smart. More like she is an easy lay and he wants to become a famous snowmobile rider and in a reality series and she canget him a lot of media attention. Seems like Sarah is more interested in Joey than Bristol is. Hope she doesn't get pregnant right away or we will be hearing about Mama Palin and her six children. At least we will know that the kid with the pointed chin is Bristol's.

    why do we think that this is all a publicity stunt? Sounds like Sarah has a business relationship with Junker--anything to get publicity for her Sledneck business venture and Todd's Iron Dog Race. Palins even want to start a reality show about the Iron Dog--a business that the government pays the prize for and Sarah pretends that it is an important, gruelling race. Most Alaskans will tell you it is nothing but a chance to get Todd's name in the news and promote the snow machine and sportwear company they own. If you see Sarah's mouth moving, you know she is trying to fool you into buying her products. Like the eyeglasses that all the Palin members are all now wearing--no prescription but just a form of self promotion. Joey Junker is just a paid employee to promote the image of a snowmobile racer. Gino was just a paid actor to promote Bristol's trial marriage reality series--just as Joey Junker is an actor to promote their next business venture. Poor Bristol seems to fall in love with whoever the employee of the month is.

    Both Bristol and Sarah need to learn that a bad attitude is like a flat tire. You can't go anywhere until you change it. Until they stop being so negative and acting like Divas, no guy will want to be in the same room with either one of them. Pretty obvious why Todd has a mistress and Sarah puts up with his wandering.

    Bristol isn't looking really desirable these days--looks like Joey is more interested in media attention to jump start his snowmobile career. Couldn't be very serious about dating this celebrity wannabee but maybe she will pay him to be on her next reality show. She tried to get Levi on for $10,000 and he refused; Gino didn't want to be a part of her movie about having a trial marriage; and now we have Bristol pretending that her new boyfriend is just like her Daddy and has lots of money to spend on snowmobiles. At least this one hasn't been in jail but not sure if he has graduated from high school. Poor Bristol just can't hold onto a boyfriend very long--so wrapped up in herself and wants to buy her baby a daddy. Gino was a better parent than Bristol or Sarah will ever be.

    sounds like Bristol is getting paid by Joey Junkie just to get him some attention--what she hasn't even been in Alaska for months and she says she has been dating him for about a month???? Not really believeable--more like a comment someone 13 year old would say. Settle down Bristol--just because Levi is no longer available and Gino won't do the sham marriage series-it doesn't mean you have to be in such a hurry to find a replacement. Or did Trip tell you to go buy him a new Daddy again?
