Joined by dance partner Mark Ballas as well as fellow “celebrity” contestants Audrina Patridge, David Hasselhoff, Jennifer Grey, Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino and Rick Fox, America’s favourite teenage mom was on hand to celebrate the kickoff of the latest season of the hit ABC reality show.
Meanwhile, despite much speculation, Sarah Palin was not in the ballroom to see daughter Bristol make her Dancing With The Stars debut.
“I thought you were going to be boring!” said judge Carrie Ann Inaba after Bristol danced a Cha Cha Cha to Mama Told Me Not To Come. “I was so wrong!”
Coming out on top was Dirty Dancing actress Jennifer, whose Viennese Waltz was “great,” said tough judge Len Goodman. “I think someone up there is going to be very, very proud of you,” said Bruno Tonioli, referring to the late and great Patrick Swayze. And a choked-up Inaba said, “Something very profound just happened. Some things get better with age and I definitely think you’re one of them.”
