Karina Smirnoff Falls on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ [VIDEO]
The tumble happened near the beginning of her Paso Doble routine, when she accidentally slipped on partner Ralph Macchio’s coat.
Luckily, the pair recover nicely — enough to receive a score of 24 out of 30 from the judges. Even better, it wasn’t even the lowest score of the night.
A visibly shaken Smirnoff thanked Macchio after the routine was over for helping her find her footing again. Whether this will affect the pair’s chances of staying in the competition remains to be seen.
Check out the full routine
The infamous 10 paddle appeared twice. Both Romeo and Disney star Chelsea Kane received one 10 and two 9’s for their routines. Romeo did a beautiful, beyond his years waltz to Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” from the movie Titanic.
Chelsea Kane stepped up the pace with a quickstep to “Walking on Sunshine.”
Hines Ward is in second with his waltz and Kirstie Alley did well with her samba. She’s in third. Both are probably safe this week. Chris Jericho is the guy who has reason to be nervous. He’s in last after a stiff tango. And since playboy Kendra Wilkinson shook all parts god gave her, and some she paid for, during her samba, she may get enough votes to stay. Tune in tonight to ABC at 9 to see who is sent home. If you miss it, we’ll get you updated tomorrow morning at 8:10.
So who do you think will get the boot tonight?
