Bristol Palin has reached the final four in this season's "Dancing with the Stars" competition and we're with the hopeful as she prepares to get "fierce."
On Monday she and partner Mark Ballas will be dancing two very different dances, the Waltz and the Paso Doble.
"The biggest challenge for me is to be intense and fierce in the Paso Doble and graceful and elegant in the Waltz," Bristol says.
But Bristol believes it's her hard work that is keeping her alive.
"I think I've been doing so well on the show because I've improved a lot and people are seeing that."
After eight weeks of taking the stage, Bristol says it's finally hit her that the mirror ball trophy is in her grasp.
"This is the first week where I realize that there's only a few days left in this whole competition and it's realistic to think that it's in reach," she says.
She and Mark also credit the fact that they've tried to stay out of the spotlight as much as possible.
"I don't think that many people are sick of us yet," Bristol says.
"Dancing with the Stars" airs Mondays and Tuesdays on ABC.
