Sarah and Willow Palin on Sarah Palin's Alaska

Sarah Palin’s Alaska debuted on Sunday night and all eyes are on Willow Palin.

Willow Palin is Todd and Sarah Palin’s middle daughter.  She has been mistaken many times as her older sister, Bristol.

On the premier of the new reality show on TLC, the family ran into some brown bears while fishing for salmon and made sugar cookies. But what people are talking about is Willow Palin. The pretty teenager kept her mother on her toes keeping the boys away.

Sarah Palin was busy working and keeping an eye on a boy who has his eyes set on Willow. He tried to sneak up the stairs to see Willow while Sarah was busy at her computer.  But mama bear Sarah didn’t miss a beat when she called Willow and gave her till the count of three to have the boy come back downstairs.  And so he did, with his tail between his legs while Sarah kept working. 

Born in 1995, Willow is 16-years-old and a very much a teenager. 

She has been kept out of the lime-light for the most part, other than a rather unfortunate incident in which David Letterman made a joke at the then 14-year-old’s expense. The Palin family claims that Letterman made inappropriate jokes about their daughter, while Letterman says he wasn’t.
