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!

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:

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.

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.

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.

Bristol Palin Tells Kirstie Alley To Hang Tough

Posted by Gary P Jackson on March 26, 2011

By Gary P Jackson

Haters are gonna hate. That’s the message Bristol Palin has for actress Kirstie Alley who is appearing on this season’s Dancing With The Stars:

Kirstie Alley, you danced beautifully, and the haters will hate no matter what. Plus, when others criticize your weight, you just might end up going all the way to the end of Dancing With The Stars! (It’s happened before.)

This kid is a class act.

I know we can all be guilty of it from time to time, but what does it say about us that many take a fun and entertaining show, and turn it into a hate fest? Many put more effort into ridiculing the performers than just enjoying a little bit of entertainment.

I’ve always enjoyed Kirstie’s acting, and hope she does well on DWTS.

Kathy Griffin Booed By Troops for Bristol Palin Joke; Bristol Responds

Posted by Adrienne Ross on December 6, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Kathy Griffin got a lesson in class from the military. I hope she took notes. While hosting “VH1 Divas Salute The Troops,” the troops actually booed her when she made a fat joke about Bristol Palin.

Holly McKay reported on FoxNews.com

Kathy Griffin hosted the VH1 Divas salute to the troops this weekend, but her “jokes” about Bristol Palin being “fat” fell flat.

“She’s the only contestant in the history of the show to actually gain weight,” Griffin said in reference to Bristol’s trip to the finals on “Dancing With the Stars.”

Even after the troops’ loud booing, Griffin continued the attack.

“No, come on, come on. She gained like 30 pounds a week, I swear to God, it was fantastic,” Griffin said. “She’s like the white Precious.”

[…]

But Palin, 20, isn’t letting 50-year-old Griffin’s digs bring her down.

“The audience’s reaction to this ‘comedian’ spoke volumes, and the decent people I know would probably have booed her, too,” Palin told Pop Tarts in an exclusive statement. “I hope people didn’t have to pay money to hear her negativity and criticisms.”

[…]

“Calling Bristol Palin fat is inappropriate and distasteful, even under the guise of humor,” body image expert and author of “Love Your Body Love Your Life,” Sarah Maria, told Pop Tarts. “The problem is that people, and particularly young people, easily absorb the ideas, beliefs, and attitudes that are presented to them. [It’s a problem] when someone makes critical comments about someone else’s body and weight, beliefs such as ‘fat is a horrible thing,’ ‘I am no good unless I am thin.'”

[…]

And while Griffin strutted in a bikini in what she called her “starvation body,” the comedienne wasn’t always so willing to flaunt her figure.

Just last year, the “Suddenly Susan” star admitted that she fell prey to some serious body image issues while seeking out her “big break” in Hollywood. Not only did Griffin get a nose job at the age of 26 in an attempt to improve her appearance, in addition to liposuction that she claims almost killed her, she also reportedly exercised obsessively, starved herself during the day and binged at night.

Having experienced the pain and pressure of show business first-hand, might one think Griffin would be a little mores sensitive to such issues?

“It is quite surprising, given her own experience,” Maria said. “One would hope that her own difficulties would awaken a sensitivity, understanding, and compassion regarding the difficulties of body weight and image in today’s culture.”

Read the full article here.

Of course, this isn’t the first swipe Griffin has taken at a Palin. She seems to be a bit obsessed, even stooping so low as to trespass the Palins’ property, which she managed to do while palling around with Levi Johnston.

Perhaps with the help of being booed by our men and women in uniform, Kathy Griffin will get the not-so-subtle hint: no one is laughing at her mean-spirited–not to mention incorrect–assessment of Bristol’s weight.

Congratulations, Bristol Palin; Mission Accomplished

Posted by Adrienne Ross on November 24, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

NOTE: Do not read any further if you do not yet want to know the results of Dancing with the Stars.

Bristol Palin entered the Dancing with the Stars studio with these goals in mind:

1. Get out of her comfort zone
2. Have fun

Mission accomplished–and then some. Her improvement over these last several weeks is obvious. Judges spoke time and time again of her impeccable form and footwork. They encouraged her to let go more, and we beheld her do that as well. This was not by accident; this was the result of hard work, determination, and a relentless commitment to progress. Bristol has come a long way, and we had the privilege of watching it all and cheering her on.

When she took on this adventure, Bristol readily admitted that she had done no more dancing than that which a mom does with her son when no one else is watching. However, when contacted by DWTS, Bristol didn’t let her inexperience get in the way. In true Palin fashion, she chose to tackle this new challenge with which she was presented and to do it with everything within her. I don’t know if Bristol realized the impact that stepping out–literally–would have, but immediately people rallied around her and were very much engaged in her new endeavor. This is evident on Facebook, for as soon as she started her official page, her Facebook friends blew up, as the saying goes. She reached 1,000 in just one day, 5,000 in a week, and the growth continues. She currently has nearly 27,000 in such a short amount of time.

Bristol’s ability to exchange “mourning for dancing,” as Governor Palin reminds us, should be a lesson to each of us. Her appearance on the show did more than electrify fans. It inspired a multitude. While the number of people who follow her on Facebook does speak to the celebrity Bristol has, various comments I’ve read there are what speak to the impact she’s having on the lives of people. Both men and women are applauding her growth as a person and the perseverence she personifies. Not everyone can come through what Bristol has come through with such class, grace, and influence. As a teenager, she became a mom. She faced her responsibility and brought her son into the world. She finished school, worked hard, and committed herself to putting Tripp first. This journey wasn’t without mistakes, heartbreaks, or sacrifices, but she entered this season with faith, hope, and a steely spine–not just the DWTS season either. I’m talking about this new season of her life. This is where people find inspiration in her.

As if DWTS wasn’t challenge enough, Bristol simultaneously took on the added challenge of traveling to share her testimony and the message of abstinence she has embraced. She spoke at Lifehouse in Louisville, the Tulare-Kings Right to Life in Visalia, and the Perry Center in Fargo. She has found her own voice and has literally matured before America’s eyes, and it’s only the beginning for her. As her mother, Governor Palin, would say, “The world is her oyster” as she moves forward.

Dancing is a metaphor for life, and in just a few weeks, Bristol has lived it before us:

You’re faced with a challenge, so you put one foot in front of the other. It may be new, but each step leads to another–and you learn along the way. It may be uncomfortable, but you give yourself to someone you trust to lead you–and you find out that there was more to you than even you knew. Your routine gets judged, but you take the criticism, some of it unfair and inconsistent, but you go back to the practices, the sweat, the discipline–and you come back again for more. The music ends all too soon–and yet you walk away secure in the knowledge that you did what you set out to do. You got out of your comfort zone, you had a blast, and you even did something you hadn’t bargained for: you made a whole lot of people feel like they were dancing right along with you.

Tonight’s third place finish is certainly not the end for Bristol. The greatest adventures of life are ahead of her still. She’ll continue to embrace new challenges, grow as an individual, and share a message of faith, life, and hope–and she’ll do it with the support of people who, while watching someone become her best self, have found the strength to become their best selves.

Stepping out never comes without haters, and there have been many along the way trying to derail Bristol’s efforts. We can learn much from her philosophy, however–the same philosophy she shared with her parents when they reminded her of the criticism she was sure to face: “People are going to criticize anyway, so I might as well dance.” Dance she did, and in so doing, the numbers of people she inspired far outweighed the numbers of haters.

Bristol Palin’s Dancing with the Stars adventure ended, but if this chapter had to come to a close, if tonight’s dance was her last televised dance, what better way to go out than having the courage to step out of her comfort zone the last few weeks–once in a monkey suit, no less–and have the time of her life? These were her goals after all, were they not?

Yes, mission accomplished. Congratulations, Bristol Palin!

Of course, Governor Palin offered her congratulations. She just tweeted the following:

1. Well, what a great ride! Competition is good for everyone.Be inspired by those who step up to challenges & improve w/each step;Congrats Jen!

2. Congrats Jen,Kyle,Bristol,et al, for proving competition is GOOD! Remember: “They’re going to criticize anyway, so you might as well dance!”

‘DWTS’ Semi-Finals Results

Posted by Adrienne Ross on November 16, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

NOTE: DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU DO NOT YET WANT TO KNOW WHO IS ADVANCING TO THE FINALS OF “DANCING WITH THE STARS.”

Bristol Palin has done it. She has gone all the way from no dance experience at all to the Finals of “Dancing with the Stars.” What an amazing feat and one that should be celebrated. Bristol has worked very hard and, as the judges have said, has come farther than any other participant in the history of the show.

Not everyone is celebrating her success, however. Liberal heads are exploding all over the place. It really is quite pathetic that people cannot put aside their hatred and Palin Derangement Syndrome, just enjoy cheering on some hardworking people, and have a little family-friendly fun. “Dancing with the Stars” results combines judges’ votes with America’s votes. Why some haters are promoting a conspiracy theory is beyond me. But I do know one thing: nobody’s going to stop moving forward and winning just because some losers want them to. It’s onward and upward for Bristol!

It’s Monday Night, Which Means it’s Bristol Palin’s Night to Shine!!! A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on November 15, 2010

I hope you all had a great weekend and had fun watching Sarah Palin’s Alaska last night on TLC. What a great show; I know I speak for many of you when I admit that I cannot wait until next week. Make sure to tune in next Sunday night at 6 pacific/9 eastern on TLC to catch the second episode of the eight-part series.

Now, on to the business of the day…

Bristol Palin has “WOWED” America with her consistent improvement and her just-dance attitude during her time on Dancing with the Stars. Bristol needs our help again TONIGHT as she prepares to dance two dances in an all-out effort to make it into the finals. It is no secret that Bristol is the most-improved dancer left. It is also common knowledge that Bristol is the only contestant left who has no acting OR dancing experience. As the fabulous Kelly Osbourne recently said, “I love Bristol. I think she’s what the show is all about. She puts her heart into what she’s doing; there’s such vulnerability in her, and she gets up there every week by herself and does it.” Kelly is so right, Bristol IS what DWTS is all about. When I interviewed her for my blog, I found her to be so down-to-earth and genuine. There is not a diva bone in her entire body. In becoming a cast member on DWTS, she chose put herself out there, which illustrates her bravery and willingness to just let her hair down and have some fun. Sarah Palin recently tweeted some words of wisdom that Bristol shared with her when she first became a contestant: “No matter what I do, they’re going to criticize, so I might as well dance.” Well said, Bristol, well said. You just get out there and have some fun, and we will be there to support you and vote like crazy!!!

Remember, it is up to all of you out there!!! YOU can help her get through to next week. Make sure you watch the show and VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!!! While it is vital that you call 1-800-868-3407 with as many phones as you have, voting multiple times, it is just as vital that you vote online at <a href=”http://www.abc.com”>abc.com </a>and if <span style=”font-style:italic;”>AT&T </span>is your cellular carrier, text your votes to 3407.

Bristol Rocks on DWTS, Acknowledges Voter Support

Posted by Adrienne Ross on October 26, 2010

By Adrienne Ross – http://www.motivationtruth.com

Bristol Palin was fabulous on Dancing with the Stars last night. Not only was her technique sound, but she came with great fire–and the judges loved it!

Deborah Starr Seibel reports:

But what everyone in the audience was talking about was the surprisingly strong showing by Bristol Palin, who managed to rack up 23 points for her graceful tango before coming in second-to-last for the marathon. Nevertheless, she wowed with a newfound confidence on the dance floor.

“I realized that if I didn’t go all out, I was gonna go home,” said Palin, who is known to be painfully shy. “So I tried my best to go all out.” The 20-year-old single mom somehow managed to survive dancing in a disastrous monkey costume last week, to say nothing of forgetting her steps.

That survival has led to much speculation that the Tea Party may be warming up their voting fingers in preparation for next week’s election by voting for Republican Sarah Palin’s daughter. Does Bristol think that’s what’s going on? “I’m sure they’re backing us up,” she said. “It’s just my mom’s supporters.”

Added her partner, pro Mark Ballas, “I have no idea what the Tea Party is. But I’m from England and I like tea. So, whether it’s a tea party, a coffee party, or any other beverage party — as long as it’s non-alcoholic — we appreciate any support we can get.”

Of course we’re backing her up! Every vote counts–and we’re exercising our right! Tonight we’ll find out what next week holds for Bristol and Mark.

Dance Bristol Dance!

Talking with a Star: My One-on-One Interview with Miss Bristol Palin- A Post by Conservative Girl with a Voice

Posted by conservativegirlwithavoice on October 4, 2010

Yesterday, I had the honor of speaking with the amazing and inspiring Bristol Palin. As a single mom, public speaker and advocate for abstinence and the pro-life cause, as well as a contestant on ABC’s hit show Dancing with the Stars (DWTS), Bristol is a super-busy young woman, but was kind enough to speak with me about her appearance on DWTS, her advocacy campaign and what she sees for her and Tripp in the future. It was a blast to talk with Bristol, and I thank her again for taking the time to speak with me. Bristol is both charming and witty, and it was fun to share some laughs and light-hearted conversation with her. While so many well-known young people are caught up living the fast-paced Hollywood lifestyle, it is refreshing to have a young woman of Bristol’s caliber taking a stand and making a difference. I hope you enjoy reading this Q&A profile piece as much as I did writing it. Click here to visit my blog and read the entire piece.
