Palin: DWTS Breakout Star?

Is Bristol Palin the breakout star for the new season of Dancing With the Stars? After watching the premiere of Dancing With the Stars it looks like this season will be a lot of fun and very competitive, even with the former Governor’s daughter who is technically not quite a "star."

On last night's Dancing With the Stars, Dirty Dancing's Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough scored 24 out of 30. Rapper Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer tied rhythm and blues singer-songwriter Brandy and professional dancer Maks Chmerkovskiy with 23 points.

Chmerkovskiy told E! online that Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino needs to be taken down a notch.

Three couples, David Hasselhoff and Kym Johnson, Margaret Cho and Louis Van Amstel, and The Situation and Karina Smirnoff, all tied for last place with a 15.

"I didn't think it was bad," The Situation told "I think the judges were a little harsh."

Head judge Len Goodman told the Jersey Shore star, "You're just under-rehearsed. You've got the guns but not the ammunition."

Sorrentino later admitted to that his "reputation" on his hit MTV series may have played a part in the dis. In the show, he spends most of his time club hopping, bedding babes and tanning.

"I literally jumped into this competition to show people that I'm trying my hardest," he told, referring to a DWTS move in which he cleared three stairs.

Actor Rick Fox and Cheryl Burke got 22 and reality star Audrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani tied football star Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunskaya for a score of 19. Both Brady Bunch mom Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas, and Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas each got an 18. Michael Bolton and Chelsie Hightower escaped last place with 16.

Bristol Palin was a pleasant surprise when she pulled off a layer and showed a sexy red fringed dress. Judge Bruno Tonioli told her, "This is virgin territory for you!"

This speaks for American (republicans), they will try and get unqualified person elected, as far as they are labeled as republican. They tried with Sarah Palin, thanks to Democrats and independents (and few republicans), she did was defeated.

Sandra, check your facts. Bristol is 20, not 17, and she graduated from High School in 2009. Your hatred is showing.

This is one hell of a country. You are white, you are 17, unmarried, pregnant and a high-school dropout. Then you become a STAR!!! Double standard or what? Picture her as an African-American woman, daughter of a politician. The outrage would be heard loud and clear and, "What example is this setting for us?" Republicans must be telling their daughters, "Look darlings, you can be just like Bristol." The double standard in this country is nauseating - and this is the 21st Century.
