Bristol Palin won't be showing much flesh when she does the flamenco on "Dancing with the Stars" this season.
"I think I will be the most dressed [contestant and have] the most modest outfits for sure because that's who I am," Palin, who calls herself "naturally shy," told People magazine.
The 19-year-old single mother, who advocates teen pregnancy prevention, said she decided to do the show because she wanted to be a good role model for her 20-month-old son Tripp. "I see this as something that's fun and that's positive, and I'm going to be able to show my work ethic to people out there."
Palin adds that mom Sarah Palin was all for her shaking her moneymaker on national TV. "She's always been my No. 1 fan," she told Us Weekly. "Of course, she'll be down here [cheering me on]."
Despite having to overcome the challenge of "showing my personality and moving my hips," the Alaska native insists she's looking forward to competing in season 11 of ABC's dance competition beginning September 20. "All the rhinestones and spray tans, that will be fun," she said.
