Bristol Palin Represents Best Of Dancing With The Stars Says Host

BRISTOL PALIN represents the best of DANCING WITH THE STARS according to the show's host TOM BERGERON. Speaking to TV Guide, the 55-year-old suggested that the daughter of Republican politician SARAH PALIN, is the best thing about the hit ABC dance contest and deserves credit for her efforts.
When asked about reports of politically motivated voting, Bergeron said he was unsure whether Palin's path to the final has been down to supporters of America's right-wing parties, but suggested that the 20-year-old should be praised for her progress, saying, "She's not the strongest dancer, obviously. But she... represents what I think is the best of our show - somebody who comes Day One and is completely out of their element and has shown a clear growth as a dancer", before adding, "She clearly has a massive or sufficient amount of viewer support to keep her in despite low scores"
Speaking about his thoughts on this year's 'most shocking moment', Bergeron alluded to DAVID HASSELHOFF's exit from the show. The 58-year-old was the first celebrity to be eliminated, and the host said, "That was the most shocking moment for me. I have no idea what happened there. I was like, 'What the hell?' I figured we had at least four good weeks of comedy coming and boom! He's gone!".

Bristol is the best because she is the only one coming in with no dance experience. The show started bringing All contestants with no experience to compete against each other to see who developed the best at dancing. It has become so unfair having only One inexperienced contestant against all the others with clearly dance experience. So unfair. When there is only one inexperienced on the show I back them all the way. With the show becoming so unfair I don't care if I watch it or not anymore. How shows change once they get started. The tv has on/off button for the ones that are upset, get a life.

I'm sure that Bergeron and the producers are back peddling as fast as they can to spin this obvious mistake into ratings gold. Every right wing whack job website is instructing people how to vote for Bristol whether they watch the show or not. That means the truly deserving dancers have been eliminated, and we're left watching a sack of potatos being pulled on a skateboard.

Tom, I respect you as a host and comedian, but you are wrong. Bristol Palin should have been gone weeks ago. She has peaked as a "dancer." It would be a travesty if she won this thing. If she does win, I won't be watching the show in the future.

I couldn't disagree with Tom Bergeron more. There are those more accomplished that have been voted off. What gives?

This just shows you that the judges don't alwaysget is right! Jennifer Gray has some dancing background, I think it is a little unfair that they chose someone with this background.

I couldn't disagree with Tom more. I agree that last season that woman that won shouldn't have been in the competition to begin with. But this season. Bristol was so bad from the beginning that had she not been Sarah Palins daughter she would have gotten similar comments as Kate Gosselin did. The judges treated her with kid gloves all season. And oh yeah... What exactly is she the star of? As far as I know all she has ever done is make poor choices, both in men and birth control.

Bristol should have been gone weeks ago. She should not have been in the finals. This show has lost a lot of viewers because of this mess. The judges should have more say on voting off someone who does not deserve to be there. I do not care that she has improved. There were much better performers who were sacrificed to keep her. This has been a terrible injustice to the real talented stars. She is not a star, just a whiny kid of a want to be star mother.

Bristol Palin is not a dancer and should really review her skills before she continues to make a fool of herself. Does the world think for one minute that if her silly mother did not exist Bristol would still be on the show???? Both Palins please do yourself a favor and stay in Alaska.

She is a disgrace. That kid Kyle didn't have any dance either. But he worked and sweated every week. What the Tea Bag creeps have done is to wipe out his accomplishment while voting in Bristol who has done nothing but walk through her "Dances." Again, this is a disgrace and it only serves to prove how insane the Tea Party creeps are.

I disagree with Tom. Bristol may have progressed a little but she is still a horrible dancer. She should have never been on the show to begin with. She is not a "star", just an unwed teen mother. The judge's scoring should have more merit than the fewers votes. Talent and skills should be a deciding factor in the scoring. It was so unjust that others who were excellent dancers got voted off the show. And yes if Bristol wins the mirror ball then I feel sorry for the shows producers because they will lose a lot of viewers including myself. It may just be the end of the show!
