Some people might have thought Bristol Palin's Dancing with the Stars run was the worst thing to happen to reality television since reality television, but not the ladies at SheKnows. They named Bristol and her trip to the finals the third best reality moment of 2010.

"We could watch Bristol Palin dance in a gorilla suit over and over again on Dancing With the Stars if we could, but it's not just that moment that landed her in SheKnows' top three reality moments of 2010, it was Palin coming into her own on the show that was the true moment," writes SheKnows. "The daughter of Sarah Palin danced in her underwear, shook her hips and fought off critics to dance her way to a top three finish on one of America's top reality shows. That's pretty moment defining if you ask us." Us too! It's just sometimes hard to remember how far Bristol came on Dancing with the Stars when she was seemingly in the news for so many other things, like her ungratefulness, her Facebook fights, and various feuds. Regardless, expect Bristol to be a tough act to follow for DWTS come 2011.
