Karina Smirnoff Trips On DWTS [Video]
A few weeks ago I blogged about Dancing with the Stars professional dancer Karina Smirnoff possibly being in trouble for posing for the May issue cover of Playboy. She seems to have slipped by, but on the last episode, she tripped and fell hard over partner Ralph Macchio's coat. What will happen next for the barely-getting-by star?
It seems like every week someone else falls on DWTS, and this time is was Karina Smirnoff's turn. Her dancing wasn't at fault, however; it was merely a wardrobe malfunction, as Janet Jackson would say. Smirnoff was riding Macchio's coat tails, literally.
Macchio was sporting a long jacket with a flared bottom that cascaded across the floor when he got low, and it was this excess portion of his jacket that knocked Smirnoff off her feet.- popeater
She immediately got right back up though, as she should, and her and Macchio continued their dance. The fall got the pair the lowest scores of the night, despite the judges positive feedback:
Mr. Miyagi would be very proud of you for getting right back up and right into the dance, Carrie Ann Inaba said.
I'm not gonna castigate you," Len Goodman told the pair. "I'm gonna congratulate you.

What do you think of the video? Should the duo be eliminated?
