As aired at ABC on Monday night, Karina Smirnoff fell on the dancing floor while dancing a hip-hop routine with Apolo Anton Ohno at DWTS All-Stars after she lost her footing. She landed on her knees and her head hit the floor, but she immediately stood up and finished their dance routine as if nothing happened.
“I’m sorry, I feel like I messed up the whole routine. We worked so hard this week. Please please please.” Smirnoff told the crowd after their performance, who later broke down into tears. Show host Tom Bergeron and the four judges, including guest judge Paula Abdul, tried to console her.
“The beauty about tonight is that everybody is outside their comfort zone. We know that and we applaud you all. Apolo, I liked the way you brought the old school to the new school.” Carrie Ann Inaba told her, who earlier asked her if she is fine after the fall. She gave the pair a score of 8.5 points.
“Karina, to be honest, I wasn’t even looking at you. So I don’t care! Apolo, you came out and you were fantastic!” Head judge Len Goodman said, who gave her and Apolo a score of 9. Bruno gave them a score of 8.5. Paula also gave them 8.5 points, making Apolo and Karina garner a total score of 34.5 points.
On Tuesday night, Apolo Anton Ohno & Karina Smirnoff landed in Jeopardy, along with Kirstie Alley & Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who earned a total of 30 points, the lowest score that night; and Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas, who had a score of 32 points. Bristol Palin was eventually announced as the eliminated contestant.
