EINNEWS—November 12—Bristol Palin may be burning a lot of calories doing the quick step on Dancing With The Stars, but she’s putting on even more of them off camera.

Friends say the 19-year-old daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has put on 15 pounds with what amounts to a junk food diet. She was photographed recently at McDonald’s, a stop she evidently makes often.

The additional weight is hard to hide on her 5 foot, 5 inch frame. When she started on the show she weighed a reported 120 pounds. Now she weighs in at about 135.

The weight doesn’t seem to distress her TV fans, however. She’s one of four survivors on this year’s contest to select the best dancing couple.
