Bristol Palin Thinks It’s Going To Be A Lot Better On DWTS This Time Around

Bristol Palin tells The Insider that she’s “not a little kid anymore”. She’s grown up a lot in the last few years since she danced the on Dancing With The Stars the first time. Below is more and you can also view a video at the link (which I had trouble getting to work). She also says she thinks she will be a lot better this time around and is glad to have Mark as a partner again.

“I think I’ve just grown up a lot in the last two years,” Palin said when asked to compare her two experiences on the dancing show. “I’m not just like a little a kid anymore….I think that’s just going to add to the performance factor a bit.”

The daughter of former Alaska governor, Sarah Palin, turned 20 during her first appearance on Dancing and will turn 22 during the upcoming All-Stars season. Alongside her maturation, Palin has also improved her physique but wouldn’t share her secrets to getting fit.

“I’ve been more active now. My son’s three-and-a-half so he’s running all over the place all the time,” she said. “[I’m] just chasing after him…I’m just a lot more active; [I] can’t spill my secrets, sorry.”

Although she wouldn’t unveil her diet and fitness regimen that helped her get fit, she reveled in the result of her efforts and believes that her new figure will help her on the show.

“I think it’s going to be a lot better this time around because there’s a lot more confidence,” said Palin, who is paired once again with Mark Ballas as her professional dance partner. “I think that that will show in the dancing.”

I thought she had too much confidence the first time around? I’m not sure I’m ready for more? We’ll see?

And speaking of Mark, if interested you can see him performing for KIIS FM here. Mark played a mix of “Waiting On the World To Change” by John Mayer, “Rude Boy” by Rihanna, and “Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers.
