DANCING WITH DEATH THREATS
Despite hysterical hype that Tea Party voters would swing the DWTS trophy Bristol Palin’s way, the dazzling and over-qualified Jennifer Grey took the prize.
Bristol finished a surprisingly strong third, receiving warm audience response and possibly benefitting from backlash against her backlash. (Note to ‘haters’ of all stripes: you do your cause no good by whipping out a gun and shooting the image of a 20 year old girl on your TV).
Viewers who tuned into the top-rated DWTS on its final nights because they were curious about all the outrage triggered by admittedly amatuer dancer Bristol Palin may have been surprised by what they found.
While the Net was aflame with charges of dreadful dancing, Bristol on her final nights– performing in the face of death threats– aced her jive, held her own through an ill-chosen Bob Fosse number and rocked her final cha-cha.
Those who’d read overblown Net comments about her weight found a ‘normal-sized girl’ (in Bristol’s words) who was toned and glowing. While not a Professional Dancer like legendary Dirty Dancer Jennifer Grey, Bristol– like chunky charmer Kyle Massey— actually fit the DWTS’s stated credo of pairing professional dancers with non-professionals.
With zero experience and incalcuable pressures, Bristol pulled through and showed that she’s inherited her Mom’s strongest qualities: terrific hair, an Alaskan can-do attitude and that scary Palin drive to go as far as sheer determination can take you. For Bristol, that was ‘within reach’ of a mirrored Dance Trophy globe; for her mother, the real globe may be at stake. WDYT?
