The Russian DWTS hottie tells she knows exactly why Bristol Palin made it to the finals…and it’s not the Republican vote!

Anna Trebunskaya and partner Kurt Warner may have been eliminated weeks ago on Dancing with the Stars, but that doesn’t mean she can’t have fun breaking down why Bristol “The Pistol” Palin is now in it to win it!

HollywoodLife.com was at the Worldwide Launch of Volkswagen EOS in Santa Monica Nov. 16, and we got a chance to talk to Anna, 29, about Brandy being eliminated and Bristol powering through to the semi-finals. She told us she “kind of wished” Brandy was still in the competition, but she’s also happy to see Bristol still in the game.

“Bristol is the most normal celebrity we ever had on our show,” Anna said. “She’s just a very sweet girl from Alaska. She just kinds of quietly goes and does her thing and she ends up going through every single week.”

The red-headed beauty believes that the audience connecting with Bristol is what led her to the finals. “I think people can feel how real she is and I think everybody likes that a lot,” Anna says. After seeing the huge audience the results show received last night, we have to agree with the former DWTS professional. Let’s face it, people adore The Pistol.

Linda, well said! Also, Bristol didn’t call DWTS, they called and solicitated her to be on the program. This contest is supposed to be about how much a contestant improves also and no one can beat Bristol in that category. There could be an argument that it isn’t fair to pit semi-pro & experienced dancers against someone who has never danced a step in their lives too. Also, there was NO cheating on the voting as confirmed on the news this AM.

Hogwash, the “people’s dancer”. This is Dancing with the STARS! Bristol has done nothing to deserve to be on the show, much less show that she can learn how to dance. I don’t want to watch people who are crappy dancers like I am – I want the crappy dancers voted off. I don’t need to identify with someone on a reality tv show. I watch the show to be entertained, to watch good dancing, and Bristol doesn’t do either. She’s still on the show because of the cheaters, and because those of us who are voting for others haven’t cheated to get more than 5 votes.

just my opinion

Please, everyone now a days has some claim to “fame” no matter how obscure it may be. So she is the teenage daughter of a republican…it could be worse, she could be famous for having TAPED those happy moments that created her child and then they somehow “leaked” to the public. Seems to be the more popular route these days, would you be upset if this was Kim, or paris in her place? Probably not, cause they seem to be more “legitimate” celebrities. HA.

Here is what so many of you are missing: A HUGE number of Americans, Republicans, Democrats, and Independents, alike, are voting for Bristol Palin because they can relate to being told they are not enough. Everybody keeps talking about how she is not skilled enough, she not thin enough, she’s not emotive enough…but nobody ever talks about her EFFORT! Nobody seems to care how hard she has been working. Well, lots of Americans can relate to that. In my opinion, Bristol Palin is THE PEOPLES’ DANCER! And when she dances, she is dancing for all of us Americans who have been told we are not enough…that we’re not pretty/handsome enough, that we’re not smart enough, that we’re not talented enough, that we’re not thin enough, etc. If I have my way, Bristol Palin will win the whole thing! GO BRISTOL PALIN, THE PEOPLES’ DANCER!!!

Firstly, she’s not a celebrity. She’s knocked up teenager who’s mother used to be the governor of Alaska. Secondly she’s not that good

Stanley Ann Dunham was a knocked up teenager, by a married man, no less. Yet you elected her son president of the United States of America, and you never talk badly about Stanley Ann Dunham, now do you? She was a teenager, about 18 years old, when she got pregnant by a man who was already married.

Jennifer Grey was pregnant before she got married. Brandy got pregnant and lied that she got married and divorced, but she didn’t. Brooke Burke has 2 children by her unmarried boyfriend. Long list. Leave Bristol alone or risk being called a hypocrite.

I think she qualified as a celebrity pre-DWTS. After all, what magazine covers do we land on when we announce OUR plans to get married?
