After the most shocking results show in Dancing with the Stars history, HollywoodLifers were either elated or devastated by the news. How do YOU feel about Bristol Palin?
Never did I expect such a visceral reaction from readers from a simple results show story. When we wrote how Bristol Palin, Kyle Massey and Jennifer Grey made it to the finals, but Brandy was cut, the world went crazy. Some of you agree with me, Bristol, 20, has charmed Americans with her work ethic and normal personality. Others are outraged and blame the Tea Party for “ruining” one of the best shows on TV. Regardless of how you feel about the situation, you can’t help but be intrigued -– will Bristol defy the odds and win Dancing with the Stars?
Here is a sampling of what YOU had to say:
IN FAVOR OF BRISTOL:
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!
Everyone loves an underdog. Heck, I’m more upset that Kurt Warner didn’t make it to the finals. I will always root for the person with NO DANCING EXPERIENCE, which is what the show is supposed to be about. Sure, Jennifer’s a wonderful dancer, and Kyle is a good young showman, but Bristol isn’t a celebrity and has come so far with no dancing or performance experience. GO BRISTOL! This has nothing to do with politics, IMHO.
When they announced the stars I said oh god really bristol? Another famewhore to boost her ignorant mother. But I have absolutely grown to love bristol the pistol.
This is affirmative action for Bristol Palin. She’s advancing because of who she is, not because of her abilities. In fact, voters are violating a basic principle of American society – they are penalizing the other contestants, who have excelled and should be rewarded for their efforts, in favor of Bristol, who’s less deserving, to prove a political point.
I don’t care about the politcs when it comes to this but Bristol still does not deserve to be here. I don’t care how much she improved, other people improved more, were better dancers, and went home. If – please, God, if – Bristol is the first one to get booted next week I wouldn’t be surprised if the studio audience cheered her leaving.
Dancing with the Stars has become a joke! Just recently a dancer that was at the top of the leader board was eliminated and now Brandy who was expected to come in first or second was eliminated while two other couples with much less of a performance were eliminated. I don’t care to spend another night watching this program!!! It is a popularity contest void of tue competition!!!
