Gov. Palin: Happy Columbus Day, California resource exploration, and DWTS All Stars tonight

  • Happy Columbus Day. Thank goodness for the determination of all bold explorers and innovators—yesterday and today—who don’t let the critics hold them back. May their courage and determination always inspire us to greater heights and encourage us today to seek responsible resource development opportunities.

    Speaking of resource development, I’m in California again today and the gas prices here are just ridiculous. One solution to this problem is of course increased exploration domestically in order to tap our plentiful supplies and not let the naysayers hold us back.

    I’m in California today to support Bristol. I’m sorry to see that she’s again getting those annoying death threats and more “mysterious white powder” sent to her while on DWTS this All-Star season. These threats sure waste a lot of time, production and public resources; but do the haters really think this will stop Bristol and Mark and the show’s producers from keepin’ on keepin’ on? Silly critics — after all these years of goofy antics like this we find these efforts are actually quite motivating! Bristol’s not letting this get her down. Anyway, tonight is a “double elimination” night, so hopefully everyone who has supported her so far will do so again! I’ll be sure to post the call in number and voting instructions later today before the event. Thank you again to everyone. It means a great deal during this fun and highly competitive event, and it’s sure appreciated!

    As Bristol shares with anyone targeted by the naysayers in life: “Hey, the haters will hate anyway; the critics will criticize, so you might as well dance!”

Dancing With The Stars: Week 3, Vote for Bristol & Mark (Updated with SarahNetRadio Interview)

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on October 7, 2012

During week two of Dancing With The Stars, Bristol and Mark were again deemed “safe”.  Once again, many voters wanted to see Bristol and Mark return to dance during week three.  Dancing With The Stars will be on the air Monday, October 8th at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on ABC.  Be sure to tune in then vote to support Bristol and Mark!

Quick recap on how to vote:

Voting information from Mark’s Blog & updated to reflect current information:

The couples dance on Monday nights for a score from the judges. Then the fans vote for their favorite. The judges score counts 50% and the fans 50%. The key to the judges score is that they convert it to a percentage. They take all the scores from the judges and add them together. Then that number is divided into the score for the individual couple. That gives the 50% that counts as the judges scores. Same thing with the fan vote. All the votes are totaled and that number is divided into the couples fan vote. The lowest combined judges scores and fan scores send a couple home.

There will be three ways to vote:


The first is by phone
800-868-3409. The number will remain the same throughout the competition. Phone lines open as soon as the show starts and stay open for 1 hour after the show. Fans should try to phone vote as soon as the show starts. After they dance and at end of the show are the hardest times to get through and we want every single vote. You can vote on as many phones as you have access to. For the first half of the season, voters will be allowed the same number votes as the contestants. For example, the first week there will be thirteen contestants, so each type of account gets 13 votes. The second week it will go down to 12. Once they are down to 5 contestants or less, the fans still get 5 votes per account.

ATT users can text their votes by texting the word “vote” to
3409. Once again you get the same number of votes as contestants. It is my understanding you can text votes and call votes from the same phone.

The final way is online. Go to http://abc.go.com/shows/dancing-with-the-stars/. On show nights there will be a vote tab. You have to have an account to vote online. You should make your accounts before the show starts because when the show is going the site crawls. You can vote with as many accounts as you make.

Dancing with the Stars is definitely a team effort. Bristol and Mark will do the dancing-the fans have to do the voting!

Mark Ballas: Bristol and I will dance the paso for ‘Iconic Dance Week’ on DWTS

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 6, 2012

From Mark’s ‘DWTS’ blog at USA Today:

Last week, we had a rough time with the judges but our awesome and loving fans pulled us through, for which both Bristol and I are super grateful.

It was definitely a challenge doing a country quickstep, but I was happy to try it since dancing to Bristol’s favorite Gretchen Wilson song inspired her. Ultimately, we want to enjoy this process and if it takes a country quickstep, we’re going to do it!

Since my dad’s side of the family is from Houston, shooting guns was not new to me. We had an awesome time and I think Bristol was surprised at how well I handled a revolver! I do have to say, she was a hell of a shot with the shotgun.

[…]

The judges slammed us a little for breaking hold this week, but it’s OK. We wanted to use the song to its full capacity and really capture the country feel. Breaking hold is a risk and you never know whether the judges will let you get away with it. We weren’t the only couple to do it this week, although we were the only couple that paid for it.

As always, we want to thank our fans for keeping us alive to dance another week. It’s never fun to see anyone go home and we will all miss Joey Fatone. He’s is such a goof and so much fun backstage that I know his absence will be noticed.

This week is going to be interesting because the celebrities have creative control and get to choose the theme, the costumes and choose a fan favorite song from past seasons. The theme is “Iconic Dance Week,” which should be pretty fun.

I’m enjoying Bristol’s creative input. So far, it’s been a good time, and a new challenge for her. Our dance is the paso, which was one of her highest-scoring dances last time around, so we shall see how this one goes.

Bristol and Mark dance the quick step to ‘Red Neck Woman’

Posted by Dr. Fay on October 2, 2012

Video retrieved from  

Bristol and Mark danced the quick step to “Red Neck Woman” on DWTS All Stars last night.  The judges didn’t seem too pleased with the improvisations in their “Wild West” version of the quick step, so their total score was 18.   Therefore,  it will be up to the voters (and the good Lord) to decide whether Bristol and Mark stay tonight.

Here is what Bristol posted on her blog this morning:

All That Really Matters

Thanks, Grandma!

We agree.  And we hope that all our votes helped too and that Bristol and Mark will go on for Week 3 of DWTS All Stars!

Last week Bristol Palin and her professional partner Mark Ballas were in the bottom three; however, thanks to your votes, Team Ballin was deemed “safe” and survived to dance another week. 

During their post-show interview, Bristol and Mark gave their fans some clues about the song they will “Quickstep” to in week number two airing tonight on ABC.  Bristol cited that she “sings the song everyday” and seemed very excited to be able to get her song pick.  Listen to the interview here:

Mark Ballas: Next week we’ll be dancing the quickstep to Bristol’s favorite song

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 29, 2012

DWTS Ballas Wk1

From Mark Ballas’s ‘Dancing With the Stars’ blog:

10:32AM EST September 29. 2012 – Week 1 down, nine to go …

Bristol had such a great first week, and she received the “most improved” award from the judges, which I think is 100% deserved! On the dance floor, she was more outgoing than she has ever been and I firmly believe she’s got even more of that magic in her.

Our next dance is the quickstep, which promises to be a lot of fun because it’s not exactly conventional. At this stage, I’ll do whatever it takes to get Bristol to exude confidence and personality.

MORE MARK BALLAS: Read last week’s entry

TWITTER: Follow Mark @MarkBallas

This week we are dancing to her favorite song. It’s been a bit of a challenge for me because I’ve never danced quickstep to this genre of music, but I’ve never seen her so excited and enthusiastic about dancing. She is loving it and that’s all that matters!

We also did something extra special this week to help get into the spirit of the dance and it was a blast. .. Put it this way: I hit the bull’s-eye quite often, and did it in true Houston fashion!

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 25, 2012

Bristol posted this announcement at Bristol’s Blog this morning:

Guest Blogging at Access Hollywood

Each week, Bristol will share an exclusive inside look at the highs and lows from her “Dancing” journey, as well as her take on the behind-the-scenes action and what the cameras didn’t capture from the ABC reality series’ upcoming season.

“I am so excited to be a part of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ again. When I was on the show the first time, I kept thinking, ‘This is a once in a lifetime adventure.’ Well, I’m happy to say that I was wrong!” Bristol shared.

“I’ll be keeping you up to date about my dances, and — yes — whether I’ll be able to do the two step as well as the rest of them,” she added.

Bristol and Mark Dance the Cha-Cha-Cha for Their Dance 1 Performance on DWTS

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 25, 2012

Video retrieved from  

Bristol and Mark danced a lively Cha-Cha-Cha on DWTS last night.   Governor Palin, husband Todd, and Tripp were spotted in the audience early on and again during Bristol and Mark’s  performance.

Emily Yahr at the Washington Post wrote:

During her performance, Bristol appears to have about 10 times more confidence in one dance than she did in all her dances on the previous season — but that’s possibly what happens when a girl has two more reality shows under her belt. Plus, her whole family came out to support her. We get our first Sarah Palin sighting, sitting in the crowd with her husband, Todd, and Bristol’s son, Tripp, who is adorably covering his ears.

Carrie Ann seems shocked by the performance, and declares Bristol “most improved,” and says she was confident and sassy. Len agrees she had a great deal of confidence, and it’s a great improvement from her last time on the show, though she still has to work on her technique.

Scores: 6.5, 6.5, 6.5 for a total of 19 points.

Here is a backstage photo with comment that Governor Palin posted on her Facebook page afterwards:

Tripp surprised his mama backstage at DWTS tonight. You can vote for Bristol by calling 800-868-3409. AT&T subscribers can text the word VOTE to 3409. You can also vote online at the DWTS website and via Facebook.

Gov. Palin: Hope you’ll tune in to DWTS tonight and vote for Bristol and Mark!

Posted by Dr. Fay on September 24, 2012

Governor Palin posted this photo and comment on Facebook today:

Bristol goes from joining Willow, Todd and buddies looking to fill the freezer a few weeks ago in the wilds of Alaska to the wilds of LA on the dance floor tonight! I know how many worries we all have about the challenges facing us today, but in the midst of it all I’m really looking forward to taking time to just be a proud mom and cheer on Bristol as she does her thing on “Dancing With the Stars” tonight! It’s good to take a break from the heavy stuff and recharge your batteries with something like this uplifting, energetic, and positive competition. If you tune in tonight (at 8/7c on ABC), I hope you’ll vote for Bristol & Mark (online at the DWTS website, by calling 800-868-3409, and for AT&T subscribers by texting the word VOTE to 3409), and I sincerely hope you have an enjoyable evening.

Paparazzi were waiting as the DWTS contestants arrived for Sunday rehearsals yesterday.  Bristol is at 1:34 minutes.

Bristol Palin Competing Again on “Dancing With The Stars” (Updated)

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on September 24, 2012

Bristol’s Blog was updated with their phone number:  800-868-3409

With her competitive spirit and “I can do” attitude, Bristol Palin will be competing on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars All-Star Edition” starting on Monday night, September 24th. Palin is again paired with professional dancer Mark Ballas to form “Team Ballin”. You may recall that Bristol and Mark placed third during the 2010 season of the show.

This past week Bristol took to her own blog to let her supporters know they can help her by voting. If you want to see Bristol and Mark dance week after week, it’s up to you to vote and make it happen! Voting information from Mark’s Blog:

The couples dance on Monday nights for a score from the judges. Then the fans vote for their favorite. The judges score counts 50% and the fans 50%. The key to the judges score is that they convert it to a percentage. They take all the scores from the judges and add them together. Then that number is divided into the score for the individual couple. That gives the 50% that counts as the judges scores. Same thing with the fan vote. All the votes are totaled and that number is divided into the couples fan vote. The lowest combined judges scores and fan scores send a couple home.

There will be three ways to vote:

The first is by phone. We will not know the phone number for Team Ballin until show time on 9/24. The number will remain the same throughout the competition. Phone lines open as soon as the show starts and stay open for 1 hour after the show. Fans should try to phone vote as soon as the show starts. After they dance and at end of the show are the hardest times to get through and we want every single vote. You can vote on as many phones as you have access to. For the first half of the season, voters will be allowed the same number votes as the contestants. For example, the first week there will be thirteen contestants, so each type of account gets 13 votes. The second week it will go down to 12. Once they are down to 5 contestants or less, the fans still get 5 votes per account.

ATT users can text their votes by texting the word “vote” to the last four digits of the voting number. Once again you get the same number of votes as contestants. It is my understanding you can text votes and call votes from the same phone.

The final way is online. Go to http://abc.go.com/shows/dancing-with-the-stars/. On show nights there will be a vote tab. You have to have an account to vote online. You should make your accounts before the show starts because when the show is going the site crawls. You can vote with as many accounts as you make.
