She was often very reserved while competing on Dancing with the Stars
last season, but Mark Ballas
predicts former ballroom partner Bristol Palin will provide a lot of entertainment on her new reality show
"I think she's going to be great," Ballas tells PEOPLE. "As chill as she is, she has a huge personality. She's funny and she's witty. Her answers are always to the point, honest and intelligent. I got to experience that firsthand last season."
For the upcoming series on BIO, Palin, 20, and her two-year-old son Tripp will set up residence in Los Angeles with Disney Channel star Kyle Massey and his brother, Nickelodeon star Chris Massey. Palin met the Massey brothers last year when she and Kyle competed on Dancing
. (Both stars made it all the way to the finale, but the mirrorball trophy ultimately went to Jennifer Grey.)
So what will the Palin-Massey household be like?
"One side is going to be chill and then Kyle's side is just going to be on fire," says actress Chelsea Kane
, Ballas's current Dancing
partner and Kyle's Fish Hooks
costar. "We should all move into this house."
