ABC/ADAM TAYLOR(NEW YORK) — There’s at least one Dancing with the Stars viewer who’s upset that contestant Bristol Palin survived this week’s results show.

A suspicious package was received this week at the CBS Studio set in Los Angeles where the ABC series is staged. According to, the package contained a white powder — later determined to be harmless — as well as a note carrying a message stating something to the effect of, “This is what will happen to you if Bristol Palin stays on [the show].”

Law enforcement officials continue to investigate the matter.

A similar package was sent to the studio in 2010, when Bristol last competed on Dancing with the Stars.

Bristol advanced this week despite earning the lowest score on the performance show.

    Sounds like yet another Palin PR stunt to me. Wouldn’t put anything past her “manager” granny grizzly. Oh and as far as the voting goes, there are Sarah Palin fan sites that tell you exactly how one person can vote multiple multiple times for Bristol. Just like last time. No surprise there.
