Bristol Palin Backlash: Is the Tea Party Stuffing the 'DWTS' Ballot Box?

"I don't think there's a conspiracy," said Andrews. "Nothing is going to sway Carrie Ann and Bruno and Len… Bottom line: she's getting the votes. People are calling in and voting for her."

When it's close, who stays and who goes ultimately comes down to the fans who call in a vote. Celebrity contender Audrina Patridge, who consistently got high marks for her dancing, didn't earn enough viewer support to make it past the show's sixth week.

Lucky for Bristol, her biggest fan may be none other than the mama grizzly herself.

"I am so proud of Bristol," Sarah Palin, who was sitting front row during the performance, said on "DWTS" Monday night. "I'm her absolute biggest fan. She told me, 'Mom, I'm going to be criticized anyway. They may say mean things. They may want to bring you down, but dog gone it, you might as well dance.'"
