One of the greatest parts of Dancing With the Stars Season 15 All-Stars is the fact that every dance is flat-out amazing. There is rarely a misstep, and when they do happen, it’s almost impossible for viewers to notice. But the one contestant some fans have an issue with is Bristol Palin, who some believe has worn out her welcome.

In an exclusive interview with Wetpaint Entertainment, pro troupe member Sasha Farber defended Bristol’s right to be there, and gave us some behind-the-scenes scoop. When we asked about the fan backlash, and those who say she doesn’t deserve to be there, this is what he told us.

Everyone should be there, that's the problem. Everyone has their own advantages and disadvantages. I think Bristol should definitely be there because she tries really, really, really hard. She's always in the studio rehearsing, and they're working extra, extra hard.”


Do you agree with Sasha, who sounds very charming and diplomatic? Or is the All-Stars season about more than just trying really hard?

We’ll see what happens this week (Season 15, Week 4: Performance, airing October 15) when Bristol and Mark Ballas dance in a rock and roll routine.

Catch a new episode of Dancing With the Stars Season 15: All-Stars on Monday, October 15 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
