Report: Bristol Palin Gets “DWTS” Gig

Bristol Palin, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s equally controversial daughter, has reportedly been tapped to become one of the contestants in the new season of Dancing with the Stars.

According to, Bristol is a shoo-in as one of the celebrity contestants on the 11th season of DWTS. The young Palin, whose twice broken engagement with her baby daddy Levi Johnston made her tabloid fodder over the past months, is one of several names being floated as contestants. The DWTS producers are expected to announce the names of the contestants at the end of the month, while the show’s new season is scheduled to premier on September 20.

Sources cited by eonline also say that David Hasselhoff, Jersey Shore’s The Situation, aka Mike Sorrentino, The Hills star Audrina Patridge, and R&B singer Brandy are probable contestants.

A rep for ABC, however, refused to confirm the casting rumors, saying only that “the real Dancing With the Stars cast will be revealed Monday, Aug. 30, live on ABC during Bachelor Pad.”
