Former Bachelor and Dancing with the Stars contestant Jake Pavelka knows a thing or two about what it takes to do well on the ABC reality dance competition, and he's not shy about sharing his opinions.

“Whoever [my ex-partner] Chelsie Hightower is dancing with is going to win!” the 32-year-old told Hollywood Life yesterday. “I think Michael Bolton, who is dancing with Chelsie, will do real well." Not according to Michael Bolton...

Who else does Jake like this year? "Derek’s [Hough] partner, Jennifer Grey, is going to do very well and of course Brandy is going to tear it up!”

But one dancer Jake likes just may surprise you. "Your sleeper is going to be Bristol Palin! Just you watch!” he said confidently. “Let me tell you, she has a work ethic like I’ve never seen – that girl has a lot of fire. Plus, she has a lot of Republicans behind her!” On that last point, he's absolutely right. Maybe Bristol will be better than we all think? Stranger things have happened.
