Personally I might leave it on as background while I work tonight, but then again some of the returning contestants ARE quite talented so I might just find myself sucked in against my better judgement.
Here is what the New York Daily News gave as odds that Bristol and Mark might win this year:
Bristol Palin (season 11 finalist)
Partner: Mark Ballas
Odds: This was the beginning of all things controversial surrounding Bristol Palin. The daughter of Tea Party darling Sarah Palin was under the microscope each week as viewers who wouldn’t normally tune in to the dancing competition got invested in the action, making the entertainment show a little political. She’s partnered with Mark Ballas again, which will definitely give her a boost of confidence, but lest she show up in a monkey suit again, Palin’s appeal may remain more superficial. 15:1
In my opinion that is MUCH too generous and probably indicates that the New York Daily News simply doesn't enjoy wading through misspelled Palin-bot hate mail.
P.S. For those who want to hear Bristol drone on about what she thinks of her chances this year, here is a link to her last interview on SarahNet radio.
P.P.S. Or if you don't want to listen to her (And who could blame you?), here is what she had Nancy French blog on her behalf:
People sometimes ask me what my goals are. Well, to be perfectly honest, my goal is modest: I don't want to get voted off the first week. You can help me with that!! If you want to be a part of my journey, e-mail me so I can add you to my DWTS mailing list. (My address is BristolsBlog@gmail.com, please use the subject line: DWTS.)
Her mother whores herself out for cash, the Teabaggers and Fox News, and Bristol shakes her reconstructed moneymaker for votes, and to stretch her fifteen minutes of fame well past its expiration date. Surgically enhanced birds of a feather.
Update: Okay folks here is Bristol's' debut.
