Bristol Palin, former first daughter of Alaska, entered the national spotlight when her mother, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was selected to be John McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential election. Bristol Palin traveled the country, alongside her mother, father and siblings, on the campaign trail. After giving birth to her son Tripp, and becoming a single teen mother in 2008, Palin became a spokeswoman for the prevention of teen pregnancy and other teen issues. As an advocate, Palin wanted to share her story with other teens who may one day face a similar situation. Palin also acts as teen ambassador for the Candie's Foundation to prevent teen and unplanned pregnancy. As part of her campaign, Palin recently guest-starred as herself on an episode of ABC Family's teenage drama "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." Palin resides in Alaska with her son and family.
Kurt Warner is the first quarterback to participate in "Dancing With the Stars." In 1999, he emerged from obscurity to lead the St. Louis Rams to a victory in Super Bowl XXXIV. That same year, Warner was named the NFL and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player. As the ringleader of the Greatest Show on Turf, he led the Rams to two additional playoff appearances, including another Super Bowl, and received Pro Bowl honors for three consecutive years (1999-2001). He also earned his second NFL MVP in 2001. Injuries led Warner to move from the Rams to the Giants, and finally the Arizona Cardinals in 2005. In 2007, he led the Cardinals to their first Super Bowl berth, was voted to his fourth Pro Bowl and surpassed several Cardinals' franchise records, including touchdowns, attempts, completions, completion percentage and passer rating. Warner's gridiron accomplishments pale in comparison to the dedication he devotes to the community. In 2001, Kurt and his wife Brenda established the First Things First Foundation, a nonprofit public charity dedicated to affecting lives by promoting Christian values, sharing experiences and providing opportunities to encourage everyone that all things are possible when people seek to put first things first. Warner was born and raised in Iowa and played college football at the University of Northern Iowa. He lives in Arizona with his wife Brenda and seven children.
