It was TV Theme Week and her team got "The Monkees." She and her partner Mark Ballas took it quite literally, starting the number in full monkey suits, which they soon stripped off. Bristol revealed a flouncing, pink dress with a white collar and belt and high-heeled saddle shoes.

The monkey suits came out after judges criticized Bristol -- daughter of former US vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin -- for not looking like she was enjoying her dances

In a slightly backhanded comment, judge Len Goodman said, "I liked the monkey suits, I think you should have kept them on a little longer."

Bruno Tonioli added, "I loved the gorillas in the twist."

Carrie Ann Inaba said, "You forgot a lot of the moves it looked like, but it was a big step forwards."

The dance scored the couple 18 out of 30.
