Kate thinks viewers are just tuning in to see her slip up — and we think she’s probably right!

It’s the “Kate Effect,” as Jay Leno put it April 15 on The Tonight Show — people are watching Dancing with the Stars just to see Kate Gosselin dance … and possibly mess up! “People are probably just tuning in to see if I will fall,” she admitted to Jay!

We think Kate is right. Seeing her fall would be simply HILARIOUS! We’re not trying to be mean or anything, but Kate isn’t the best dancer out there — and she knows it. “I have never danced any where before in public or in private, so it’s very nerve wracking,” she said.

And each week, Kate is just as surprised as we are to learn she’s staying in the competition. “I am [surprised],” she said. “I have to thank all of my voters. My dancing isn’t keeping me there!”

12.7 million viewers tuned in to watch DWTS on April 13 and possibly to see if Kate would slip up, but she didn’t! Interestingly enough, Kate even stated that the Tango was her favorite type of dance yet! “Finally, I didn’t blank out during the dance. I was totally in it,” she said.

Hopefully for Kate’s sake, the audience keeps tuning in and her voters keep her around! She’s going to need all the help she can get next week when she attempts the Fox Trot!
