Another Palin family shocker!

On Tuesday, Sarah Palin revealed that another loved one was approached by producers of Dancing with the Stars to compete on the show: her husband, Todd.

"They wanted Todd to be on the show," the former Alaska governor said at a Houston, Tex. speaking engagement, CNN reports.

"I think that would have been cool to see, too," Palin, 46, said of Todd, 46, her husband of 22 years, with whom she has five kids.

The politician didn't indicate whether show producers originally wanted Todd instead of their daughter Bristol, who is currently competing on the ABC smash.

Bristol, the couple's second eldest child, is doing great, Sarah said: "She is way out of her element, out of her comfort zone, and she is the first to admit that."

Would the one-time Republican Vice Presidential candidate ever compete herself? Only if she could use her basketball skills, she joked.

"They would have to let me dribble back and forth and maybe pivot and do a jump shot or something as part of the routine."
