Bristol Palin's future on "Dancing with the Stars" was uncertain going into Tuesday's semi-final results show, but after the surprise elimination of Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, the 20-year-old single mom is enjoying her "moment."

"There is a difference between wanting it really, really bad and then enjoying every moment. I think you just gotta go with it, go with it week to week. Who cares if you make it at the end or if you don't? You're enjoying now, you know, because you never know, we could all be dead tomorrow, we could be hit by a bus tomorrow and you've got to enjoy this second, right now, as it's happening," Bristol told Access following Tuesday's show.


"My body naturally wants to look like Dick Van Dyke," Ryan joked. "When I stop training, I turn into a skin-colored whisper."

"You just have to go with the flow," he said of being crowned "Sexiest Man Alive." "This gives my family entre into teasing me for the rest of my life."
