Kirstie Alley: Dancing With the Stars Favorite?

by at . Comments

At 60 years old and not possessing the body type of, say, Kendra Wilkinson, underdog Kristie Alley immediately endeared herself to Dancing With the Stars fans.

The surprising part? She won over the judges last night as well.

Dancing With the Stars saved the best routine for last, as Kirstie's spirited cha cha with Maksim Chmerkovskiy shamed many competitors half her age.

"I'm doing this as a challenge to see how far I can push myself physically and still live," Alley - dubbed "G" for "Grandma" by Maks - joked beforehand.

Whatever she did, the rest of the field is on notice after this:

Kirstie - we were rooting for you girl - you absolutely rock!


I thought she was fantastic!! Not just for a 60 yo, still not thin, ex-fat chick. She had some great moves!


To George Lopez: "Man stands amazed to see his own deformity in every other creature....but himself.


Go Kirstie!! You rocked it!!


Kristen was incredible!! Anything is possible if you put your mind and heart into it!!


Finally someone who can handle Max, she won't put up with it. The best 2 performances of the night were the from the older ones, Machio & Alley. I thought she would be a joke, but she did wonderful.


Still love you, Kirstie, good job!

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
