Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff redeemed themselves last week on Dancing with the Stars. After Karina stumbled mid-dance during their paso doble two weeks ago, the pair came back with a strong quickstep that put them back atop the leader board. Karina promises that the pair are not losing steam and has big things planned for tonight’s two dances. Keep reading to see what she has up her sleeve.
Karina told TV Guide that their Viennese Waltz is going to be something never done before. “It’s going to be so awesome! I requested this song in the beginning of the season, so I’ve been waiting to do this for a while. It’s just going to be a completely different spin on the Viennese waltz. It’s usually romantic and elegant, but ours is dark, edgy and sexy. Ralph is so different and so sexy and so dominant in it. It’s really cool. He’s totally into the character of the dance. I’m so excited about it.”
Karina is not worried about upsetting judges with the lack of tradition, as Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas have in previous dances. “It’s still traditional. I’m not changing the moves. They’re all Viennese waltz elements. Len won’t say we broke any rules. The only difference is the mood. I think it’s going to take everyone by surprise, but I think it’s going to work. We’re both really pumped about it. It’s just a fresh twist on something you’ve seen plenty of times before. I think the judges will love it. I hope they will!”
As for their second dance, the cha-cha, Karina boasts that viewers will see a sexy side of Ralph. “It’s so funny because that was the team dance last week and Ralph was nervous about doing all the moves and shaking his hips and stuff, but he slowly got comfortable with it and now he can’t wait to do a whole routine. It’s going to be hot and fun. Let me tell you, he’s really gotten into the cha-cha. He is shaking it and working it! Between this and the Viennese waltz, this will be the sexiest you’ll ever see him!”
Tune into Dancing with the Stars tonight to see the sexy side of Ralph when he debuts two dances with Karina.
