Sarah Palin's daughter, Bristol, is not just trying to follow her mother's footsteps. They'll be on display on the next season of the ABC show "Dancing with the Stars."

Reports say a stint on the show can earn her $400,000 depending on how far she gets.

Bristol is a single mother; she's been making money giving speeches -- $14,000 for an appearance next month at a Christian home for single moms.

The network will officially announce the cast next Monday.
