Despite receiving Monday night's lowest score, reality TV mom Kate Gosselin escaped elimination from Dancing with the Stars Tuesday, as British soap star Aiden Turner got the boot instead.
RadarOnline.com's Tina Malave caught up with Gosselin, and asked her about her mindset after surviving another difficult week.
"It's like determination times 100," Gosselin told us exclusively. "Because now, I'm even more invested -- every week I'm more invested.
“And that just means I'm going to work even harder,” Gosselin said. “And that just means I want next week even more. And that means everybody else is working harder, which means we've got to work harder and we've got to show we worked harder."
We also asked Kate about something that's been one of the country's hottest water cooler topics over the past year: her ever-changing hairdo.
"The funniest thing is, most people out there care a lot more about my hair than I do," Kate said, adding that she usually defers to the stylist as to how her blonde locks will be presented.

Kate's partner Tony Dovolani noted the improvement he's seen in her as a dancer, as he said the butterflies in her stomach have calmed with each passing week.
"Now the nerves aren't getting the best of her," Dovolani said. "Now, she's getting the best of the nerves."
Dancing With The Stars returns at 8/7c Monday on ABC.
