Bindi Irwin, daughter of late "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, is still going strong on this season of Dancing With The Stars.
But what should be a time of intense focus on the competition is not that at all because of one boneheaded decision by a judge.
Since Bindi is 17 years old, she needs her parents to sign a contract giving her permission to participate on the show. Her mother has done so, but the judge is now demanding proof that her father is indeed deceased.
Perhaps the judge has been living under a rock for the past decade? It is pretty much common knowledge that Steve Irwin died in 2006 after being stung by a sting ray.
Bindi stands to loose a lot of money if the judge continues down this path.
Her earnings currently stand at $230,000 from the show, but are only expected to increase with each round she survives.
And with stellar performances like below, Bindi is sure to stick around for a while.
