Justine Carelli was American Bandstand's girl next door Always conservatively dressed and neatly coifed Justine was the girl that every mother wanted to see her son marry. She first danced on the show when she was only twelve, two years younger than the rules allowed, thanks to her sister's birth certificate and make-up. Justine was an instant hit; in a few weeks she was a regular. When Justine met Bob Clayton and they started dancing and dating her popularity soared - the two personified the innocent lyrics of the songs they danced to.
