And here we were, ready to focus only on Tristan MacManus’ chest hair on the Dancing With the Stars Season 15 All-Stars premiere. Sigh.

With that tousled hair and open shirt, he looked like the kind of sexy rock star Pamela Anderson loves. However, that wasn’t enough for the judges. And it may not be enough for voters — Tea Party supporters or not!

“I feel a little underdoggy in this All-Stars season,” Pamela said in her taped intro package. A lot of the All-Stars have won before, the DWTS Season 10 veteran said, and there are Olympic athletes. Plus, she added, “Bristol Palin — you know, she’s got the whole Tea Party, right?”

Um, maybe not. She may have had a big Tea Party backing two years ago, but it’s 2012 now. But hey! Guess who heard that comment in the audience? Sarah Palin, mother to Bristol, who had one of the youngest Palins (Tripp?) in her lap, covering his ears after Pamela and Tristan’s Cha-Cha-Cha. That was probably too sexy a dance for his little eyes, but chances are the Palins wouldn’t be backing Pam & Tristan anyway.

Pam & Tristan got the lowest score of the night — 17 out of 30, which is more in line with a normal Week 1 score, not an All-Stars score. Do you think this may be the end of the line for them? We'd miss our favorite Lucky Charm!
