DWTS, Bristol Palin, Mark Ballas


The stars were in for a bumpy night right off the bat.

Bristol Palin did everything but dress up like a monkey to impress the judges—oh wait, she did that, too—and still ended up in last place on Monday. Kyle Massey, so cute every week, felt Len Goodman's 5-breathing wrath after getting a little too Studio 54 with his fox-trot. And Jennifer Grey, who goes into every show in first place until proven otherwise, lost the top spot to Brandy.

But it's still easy to figure out who was teetering on the brink and who was totally safe, right?

Well sure, if you guessed that Bristol and Kyle would be totally safe and Jennifer would be "in jeopardy."

Even Bristol and partner Mark Ballas were surprised that they got to spend most of the show just chillaxin' in the wings.

And Jennifer turned out to be safe, too. Apparently it was just her turn to have her feet held to the flames for a bit.

Instead, Florence Henderson was eliminated after dancing to the theme song from The Brady Bunch, the thing that made her beloved by all in the first place! The 76-year-old pop-culture icon also hit her personal best last night with a 21.

But perhaps the very Brady tango was just a bit too kitschy for the viewers out there in today's TV land.

"I have been in television for over 50 years," the ever gracious Florence said, "and this is one of the best produced shows I've ever been on...I hope I've inspired people to get up off their behinds and move, and dance, and live and enjoy life."

Meanwhile, the competition is getting tougher as Audrina Patridge, Brandy, Bristol, Jennifer, Kyle, Kurt Warner and Rick Fox move on to next week.
