Bristol Palin brings it back to 'DWTS' for Season 15's 'All-Star' contest

Craig MedredAlaska Dispatch

Hey, Girl. You've probably already heard, but Bristol Palin is back in the hot seat now that "Dancing with the Stars: All Stars" has begun. It's not what you're thinking. This time they have nothing but good things to say.

The daughter of one-time Vice Presidential nominee and governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, is all weight positive, according to gossip site Wetpaint, which notes Bristol's appearance is slightly different from her last appearance on the show.

The 21-year-old twirler has said she thinks it is "hurtful for any girl when someone's criticizing their weight on a national level." Adding, "It's an awkward position."

"I'm definitely in better shape than I was last time, definitely. I'm just more active and I cut all the crap out of my diet! It's that simple," she told US Magazine.

As far as the competition goes, Palin is gathering rave reviews for her caribou-like legs and grizzly-mama mane. The tundra enchantress has even the most rigid of critics praising her prance, including the hardnosed DWTS judges.

US Magazine reports that judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli were "wowed" by Palin's "cha cha," and gave her and partner Mark Ballas high marks.

Intrigued? You can catch Bristol back in action on DWTS Oct. 1 on ABC beginning at 8 p.m.
