Why She Was Cut: Despite getting low scores from judges throughout her season, Bristol Palin had a strong fan base, which carried her all the way to the DWTS finale during season 11. Unfortunately, her fans just couldn't pull through this time around. Although Carrie Ann Inaba claimed that Palin and Ballas' rock n' roll routine from the night before was their best dance of the season, the pair only earned a 32 out of 40 on a night where two couples received almost perfect scores. "We did it. We made it to week four and I'm happy with that," said Palin. "I had an awesome time and an awesome partner."
