After three painful weeks, Bristol The Pistol turned on the charm — especially when she was filming the segment at home with her little boy, Tripp! She even cracked a joke! Plus, Jennifer Grey tore up the dance floor out dancing the much younger contestants!

Bristol Palin seems like a sweet enough girl, but for a “Pistol,” she certainly lacks heat! Throughout the last three weeks, the 19-year-old “advocate” has bored me to tears with her lackluster dances and one word interviews — but she finally made some headway Oct. 11 during the pre-taped segment! Filmed at her house with her toddler, Tripp, and her professional dance partner, Mark Ballas, Bristol was laid back and witty, and for the first time, I actually LIKED her!

Yep. I admitted it. Without further ado, check out the Bristol moment — plus my five other favs including Jennifer Grey‘s incredible moves on the dance floor earning her two perfect 10s — below:

  • Bristol cracked me up when she was discussing dancing with her partner, Mark, in her living room to show her 21-month-old boy, Tripp. “Tripp really loved it,” she said to the camera. “I just wish he was old enough to vote.” Lol! Too bad her dance wasn’t as entertaining as her segment.
  • Jennifer and Derek Hough‘s rumba was practically flawless. I loved the whole thing, and so did the judges, who gave her 56/60 and the season’s first two perfect 10s. I still can’t believe she’s 50-years-old — it’s freaky! She definitely out danced her much younger opponents!

  • Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino pulled at my heart strings yet again. Sure, his dance was painful, but he’s just so gosh darn earnest. “That’s definitely a situation, I’ll be honest,” he said after finishing his horrendous dance, which was the lowest scoring performance of the night with 28/60. “I had fun out there and was training hard. And as long as Karina’s in one piece, that’s all that matters.”
  • Florence Henderson needs to stop trying to push the envelope and be sexy. Tonight, she practically raped her partner on live television and it might have scarred me (and the rest of America) for life. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba couldn’t have said it better. “What just happened? You’re Mrs. Brady!” she exclaimed. “What was that? I actually got a little uncomfortable.” Agreed.
  • Am I delusional (highly possible) or was Judge Judy in the studio audience?? At one point, I could have sworn the cameras panned to my favorite judge sitting pretty in the front row. If it was really her, that was one of my six top moments. If it wasn’t, then I only have five favs today. Apologies.
  • Even though I thought Brandy was rude when Maksim surprised her with a romantic date (he looked HOT! How dare she be mean?), I LOVED her rumba. The song was beautiful; her lines were beautiful…and for the first time this season, I wanted to vote for her. I would have given them a 54 out of 60, instead of a 48!
  • What did you guys think? Who should stay…and more importantly right now, who should go?
