Watch Bristol Palin Dance in Gorilla Costume on DWTS

Bristol Palin tried to show off her funny side on Monday's DWTS by dressing in a gorilla costume to the 1960s TV show theme song The Monkees. She then ripped it off and danced the jive in a hot pink sleeveless dress.

But the routine didn't win over judges She scored the lowest with 18 out of 30.

Palin, 19, whizzed by the press line Monday night, but her fellow competitor Kurt Warner told, "I think the show is all about having fun, and I thought that was fun! It went with the theme, and I think they came out and kind of nailed it. I like to see people take chances and just enjoy it have fun."

The night's highest scorer: Brandy, whose quickstep to the Friends theme landed her a 27. "I loved the theme and I really loved our dance," she told Us. "I had so much fun tonight representing who we are as friends, and we just got out there and we had a good time. I'm so proud of [partner] Maks."
