If you're one of the eight or so people watching Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp, then you know that this family really makes you reevaluate the popular notion that the Kardashians are talentless, because they are least, watchable. The only thing remotely interesting about Palin's new show is the teen mom's 17-year-old sister Willow. It's unclear if she's suffering from severe middle-child syndrome, teenage hormones, or involuntarily being a public figure, but whatever it is, it's made her delightfully unpleasant.
Her complaining, her eye-rolls, her disdain for her sister's boyfriend, and her general embarrassment over everything probably makes her the most likeable Palin, which is saying something, considering that her first major headline was over gay slurs she made on Facebook toward people criticizing her mother's reality show. Willow is young and salty and grouchy. She generally speaks in monotone, even when breaking up with her sort-of boyfriend so that she can go to "hair school" in Arizona. "I'm getting a career going. You're working at an auto shop," she tells him, with a side-eye.
