LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Is Sarah Palin heading to the set of “Dancing with the Stars”? You betcha!
The former Alaska governor will be in the audience for Monday’s season premiere, cheering daughter Bristol on, a source confirms to Access Hollywood.
The politician’s daughter, Bristol, will hit the dance floor with pro partner and two-time “DWTS” champ Mark Ballas, along with the other 11 “Stars” and their pro partners.
All 12 pairings will perform during the premiere, with one duo being sent home on Tuesday night.
While Sarah will be rooting Bristol on, the teen mom may have a tough “Dancing” road ahead of her.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, a popular oddsmaker dubbed Bristol as a 20:1 long shot to waltz away with the mirror ball trophy this season, with Brandy and Maksim Cherkovskiy tapped as the early favorites with 3:1 odds.
However, Bristol is hoping her athletic experience will help her two-step her way through the competition.
“I was a basketball player, soccer player,” Bristol previously said during an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” “[I] never danced at dances or anything, so I’m nervous about that.”
