Bristol Palin (born October 18, 1990) is an American living person who appeared on Dancing with the Stars seasons 11 and 15. Her partner is Mark Ballas, born 1986. She is one of the contestants who placed third. She was one of the contestants to be the last one to be called safe, but she was originally eliminated. Bristol is also returning to the All-Stars edition in 2012, but she and Mark were eliminated in the fourth week of the show. She was on the show two times as of now. Her partner is the same in season 15. She has some children: Piper (born 2001), Track (born 1989), Trig (born 2008) and Willow (born 1994).

Her scores are keeping lower than Sabrina Bryan's, but not higher from the judges because her dancing is the worst in the show's history. She placed third in her first time and appeared on the all-stars season. Her quickstep and her other dances on the first three weeks had a score of less than 25. Her rumba had a score of 14/30, the lowest rumba in the show's history and the season. Bristol was on the 11th season of Dancing with the Stars and the all-stars season.
