'DWTS' Results Recap: Bristol Palin Has Nothing to Lose (VIDEO)

TV Addict 10

Briston Palin & Mark Ballas

I know it's only been two weeks, but so far, the Dancing With the Stars All-Stars season is proving to be pretty unpredictable. Since all of the cast members have been part of the competition before, it's like there really aren't any true front runners, even though some are definitely more accomplished in the rhythm and groove department for sure.

And even though Bristol Palin has lost a ton of weight and looks better than ever and seems to be a bit less shy this season, it's pretty hard to ignore the obvious. She's a great gal -- but she isn't exactly Ginger Rogers. There's something about that girl's body that just won't move, and it definitely wouldn't have surprised anyone if tonight had been the end of the road for her.

But loyal fans must have figured Bristol deserved at least one more week in the ballroom, because she and Mark are safe and surprisingly made it through tonight's elimination round.

And even though I'm genuinely glad she's not leaving yet, it's pretty hard to ignore that Bristol is basically repeating her first season on DWTS. Even when she doesn't impress the judges (and winds up at the bottom of the leader board) she still wins with viewers. And at this point, she really has absolutely nothing to lose, so she might as well give it her all every week and try and perfect her technique -- for the sole purpose of proving to the world that she's way more than Sarah Palin's daughter. (Yes, it bugs the hell out of me that people hate her simply because of who her mother is.)

Ok, so Bristol is safe -- but how in the hell did Kelly Monaco wind up in jeopardy this week? Even though she wasn't number one after last night's performance, she is still a major contender, and it's just so surprising that fans didn't pick up the phone and give her their vote last night. (Maybe they assumed she'd definitely be safe?)

And honestly, Joey Fatone and Helio Castroneves really didn't belong in the bottom three either, but then again, I guess no one on this season truly stands out as being the obvious person to send home. (Besides Bristol. Sad, but true.)

And I guess that brings us to who wound up at the bottom of the pack tonight. Sadly, we've seen Joey Fatone's last dance, at least for the time being. (Maybe they'll do a second round of All-Stars?) He was a total class act about leaving, which probably won't come as a huge shock to those who know and love him.

In case you missed Bristol's peformance last night, here's the video clip. Do you think she deserved to stick around?

Were you shocked to see Joey Fatone go home tonight? Will Bristol Palin last another week?

I actually am shocked about Joey go home. I thought he was a good dancer on his season.

MamaB... MamaBear2cubs

I loved Joey. Not a Bristol fan

Jan Hood

It's not up to me who gets emiminated but I adore Joey and he was such a sharp dancer! Makes me sad.

Patrick Kelley

Im shocked Bristol Palin wasnt sent home before Pam Anderson but Pam was high yee yee yee i that
her facial expressions killed her chance to remain


Bristol and Kirstie are the two who should have been at the bottom. I'm truly very disappointed that Joey went home. He's such a great entertainer and so much fun to watch. I guess it's time for me to start voting. Helio one of the bottom 2???? Seriously??? What a joke!

Sarah York Mikesell

I like Bristol and I like her with Mark... but I was shocked she didn't get sent home last night.

I loved Bristol and Mark!!!! So glad they do not subscribe to the "Sex and Undressed" line. They are so refreshing and deserve to win as they perform well, have great choreagraphy, and this last one was "super". Too bad the judges, except Carrie Ann, are so prejudiced. Again, Great going, Bristol and Mark!!!! All of us here in the northern part of WA are all for you (who cares about the Liberal "loosers"! Keep going!

It is time (past time) for Bristol Palin and for Kirsty Ally to leave. Their quality of dancing is far below the others. People need to vote according to their ability and quality of dance, NOT by POPULARITY! This is the only way these two lovely ladies have stayed on this long. PLEASE, people vote for the BEST DANCERS, not because there are a lot of votes out there that Mommy's name can get you, or your acting partners can get you. VOTE for the BEST /  TALENTED DANCERS ! The ones who DESERVE it. VOTE CORRECTLY! That's all we ask. Use your brain, not your heart, or wallet, I figure some are paying friends, etc to vote for their daughter or for showbiz person - Cheer's to ya Kirsty!!!  This is Dancing with the "All STARS" Two previous winners were voted off today when they should still be there and Bristol and Kisrty stayed???? What's wrong with this picture????

Judges need to be the only ones voting, This way they vote on their dancing ability along with their musicality. The voting will be done right, the other audience voters won't be able vote  to screw it ALL up. The less qualified dancers will be eliminated and the right ones will continue on and so forth. Then, they (the judges) will decide the winner of the Glass Globe Mirror Ball.!  Too many talented Dancers have already been sent home, that should have stayed longer!
