It could be the end for Karina Smirnoff and Apolo Ohno. The Dancing With The Stars professional took a fall during last night’s show and could be eliminated tonight.
Smirnoff, who won season 13 with partner J.R. Martinez, wasn’t on her game last night. The judges were impressed with Ohno’s moves, even his running man, but Smirnoff’s fall could cost them the Mirror Ball Trophy.
After her fall, Smirnoff hopped back up and the two completed their dance. But once the music stopped Smirnoff broke down in tears.
“I’m sorry, I feel like I messed up the whole routine … We worked so hard this week.”
Len Goodman tried to console Smirnoff saying that he was focused on Ohno during the routine.
Goodman said: “Karina, to be honest, I wasn’t even looking at you. So I don’t care!”
Smirnoff would receive a little more comfort when she received her final score from the judges. Despite the fall, Karina Smirnoff and Apolo Ohno were given a 34.5 out of 40. It wasn’t the best score of the night but it also wasn’t the worst. According to Hollywood Life, Smirnoff and Ohno finished in 7th place ahead of Bristol Palin and Kirstie Alley.
Do you think Smirnoff and Ohno will be eliminated?
Here’s the video of her fall last night on Dancing With The Stars.
