Dancing With the Stars’ Karina Smirnoff

Friday, May 15 by

Today’s Dancing girl is Ukrainian Karina Smirnoff, who joined “Dancing with the Stars” in Season 3, and has… stayed on the show ever since. (If you’ve been following this series of galleries, you may have picked up on a trend.)  The closest Karina ever came to winning was in her inaugural season, during which she partnered with Greg Louganis impersonator Mario Lopez.   This season, she’d been cutting a rug with Apple founder Steve Wozniak, but was sadly eliminated  in the fourth round when she got lost in the rug that is Wozniak’s beard.

Pointless Quote: “I just kept smiling, but it hurt.”
