LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Dancing with the Stars tonight left Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff (photos below) dominating predictions for elimination. Dancing with the Stars results last week placed Macchio as the most likely candidate to be eliminated. Tonight the news wasn’t any better. Macchio entered tonight with the lowest overall scores. By the end of the evening, Macchio posted the two lowest ranking dances of the night, ending again with the lowest overall numbers.
So will Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff be eliminated in results tomorrow night May 17, 2011? Predictions tonight suggest so. Coming into tonight, Hines and Kym (252) and Chelsea and Mark (245) had the highest overall scores. Kirstie and Maks, and Ralph and Karina, however, were substantially far behind with just one point between them. But after Monday’s telecast, the difference widened.
On the first round of dancing, Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy on the Viennese waltz delivered an impressive twenty-seven. Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff on the Argentine tango, however, failed to impress judges. The team posted the worse numbers of the round. A twenty-five score was announced to news after their dance.
Later in the round, Hines Ward and Kym Johnson on the same tango posted the highest numbers of the evening. The team made news by posting the first perfect dance of the season. A thirty was awarded to them, prompting Len to remark “It was like something from the karma sutra! It was all going on!” Bruno added “Every emotion was out there for the taking.” And Carrie Ann added “I’m so impressed with the routine and the way you performed the routine.”
On the second round of dances, Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff just fell apart, posting a twenty-three. It seemed as the couple has just lost their base. Bruno was left confused. “Are you wearing extra-wide diapers?” Len said it lacked any rhythm and was too wild. Carrie Ann put the nail in the coffin, remarking “There was something bizarre and uncharacteristic for you.”
Stranger things have happened in this season. The elimination of Romeo last week certainly shocked news. But if tonight was any indication, Ralph and Karina could be in trouble on Tuesday.
