Brooke Burke says she knows Bristol Palin has been a lightning rod for controversy this season on the show.

In a conversation in New York City with the press today (November 18), the Dancing With The Stars co-host said, “A lot of people are questioning whether she deserves to be there. I think she deserves to be there. America makes up for half of the scores. And they are voting for her. A lot of people who are criticizing, don’t vote at all. This is a show you have to participate in and you have to let your voice be heard.”

She added: “I think she has grown the most. And I think America has chosen to put her there.”

As for Brooke’s thoughts on Tuesday’s finale? “You can assume nothing on a show like this,” she said.

Meanwhile, Brooke is getting an early start to the holiday festivities n with a new partnership with Bing for a new site,, aimed at making holiday shopping easier. “I can’t remember the last time I was in a mall,” she says. (CLICK HERE to check out Brooke’s gift picks on the site.)
