Executives at ABC are beefing up security to protect Bristol Palin and her dance partner Mark Ballas after the duo received multiple death threats. The finals for Dancing with the Stars will air November 22-23, and security is reportedly heightened.

The serious threats began last week when Palin and Ballas made the finals. Sarah Palin‘s daughter also received a suspicious letter with white powder in it — which is now being investigated by the FBI.

Ballas was asked not to use his Twitter page because it was inciting people. He last ‘tweeted’ on November 17: “Taking a break from Twitter until the seasons over. Thank you to all the supporters and fans. We love you. I’ll be back soon….”

Palin has some stiff competition tonight. Disney star Kyle Massey is predicted to win by Brandy and Maks. The eliminated couple appeared on The View and had nothing but good things to say about the Alaska teen but are rooting for 19-year-old Kyle to win the Mirrorball trophy.

The most consistent dancer of the three is Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey, who famously had plastic surgery that totally changed her appearance.
