'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas Finally Face Elimination
Perhaps Bristol Palin should have listened to partner Mark Ballas’ bunny suit suggestion…because last night she was the latest Dancing With the Stars All-Star to be sent home.
“I had an awesome time and an awesome partner,” Bristol said after her elimination. “I wish everyone the best of luck.”

The other two celebrities that found themselves in jeopardy the other night were Kirstie Alley and Apolo Anton Ohno.
Next week features not only individual routines but also team freestyle! Gilles Marini and Shawn Johnson were selected Team Captains because of their top-scoring performances on Monday night.
Each selected a card, opened it up and read aloud their Freestyle team’s guilty pleasure song. Gilles was more than elated to be dancing to “Gangnam Style” while Derek Hough was a bit disappointed with Shawn’s mystery selection – “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepson.

With the angst of high school gym class in the air, the teams were selected schoolyard pick style. Gilles' team consists of Kelly Monaco, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Kirstie, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke.
Shawn’s team includes Sabrina Bryan, Louis van Amstel, Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani, Apolo and Karina Smirnoff.
With both teams filled, Bristol and Mark were the only ones left on the staircase. As host Tom Bergeron explained, the couple would replace whichever team was sent home… unless it was them of course.
