Karina Smirnoff On DWTS15 Cast: “Women are very strong, but the male celebrity guests are a little bit stronger overall”
Karina Smirnoff not only made an appearance at the “It’s So Miami” pop-up pool Party in NYC, she also gave her thoughts on the upcoming cast of Dancing With The Stars. Below is more from People today. Check out what she says about Bristol Palin too.
“The women are very strong, but the male celebrity guests are a little bit stronger overall,” Smirnoff told PEOPLE at an event sponsored by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau. “I mean, we have an Olympian male guest – Apolo Anton Ohno. I’m sure he’ll go very far.”
Otherwise, added Smirnoff, it’s a crapshoot. “It’s going to depend on the chemistry that [the stars] have with their partners, the quality of the dancing that [they] do, and who has more fans,” she said.
There is one star for whom Smirnoff doesn’t have high hopes, however. “I’d be very, very surprised if [Bristol Palin] won,” she said. “Bristol was not known as the best dancer of [her] season. … There was so much controversy when she was on.” (Still, the reality star landed in the finale during season 11.)
