Teenage mother Bristol Palin admits she expects to be the ''most dressed'' contestant when series 11 of the reality show launches
Bristol Palin expects to be the "most dressed" contestant on 'Dancing With The Stars'.
The 19-year-old single mother - who is the daughter of US politician Sarah Palin - plans to shun the skimpy, glitzy outfits normally worn on the show when season 11 launches in the US.
She said: "I think I will be the most dressed contestant and have the most modest outfits for sure because that's who I am.
"I see this as something that's fun and that's positive and I'm going to be able to show my work ethic to people out there."
The pretty teenager - who is mum to 20-month-old son Tripp - admits she is shy, but hopes her sporty background will help her do well in the competition.
She explained to People.com: "I have no experience in dance. But I come from an athletic background, so I'm thankful for that. I played basketball, volleyball, soccer, everything."
Meanwhile, Bristol's fellow competitor Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino - who is known for starring in reality show 'Jersey Shore' - admits he thinks he is the "underdog" in the competition because he needs to finish work on his MTV show before he can start rehearsing.
He said: "I'm going to lose a couple days practice. But I don't mind being the underdog. I promise to try my hardest and practice as much as I can and be the best that I can be.
"It's pretty unbelievable for me to be on one of the biggest shows on MTV to one of the biggest shows on TV."
