    I could have done without Karina this season as well, but she does do amazing choroegraphy that always comes off as fun, fresh, and exciting. Unlike other long time female pros who've gotten stale and repetitive.

    I expect Jacoby to either take the whole thing or, at worst, finish in 4th. Football players have a dedicated following.

    Karina IS one hell of a choreo.

    And she's become softer, more human the past two or so seasons, so I'm OK with her being back.

    Jacoby?

    We'll see what she does with him.

    I saw Karina on Celeberty Ghost Stories. Her story wasn't too exciting but she looked really beautiful and came across very well. I haven't cared much for her on the show but after watching her interview I am softening up to her.

    Re: Jacoby Jones & Karina Smirnoff - Season 16

    I started softening up to Karina in the past two, three seasons.

    When she first came on, I absolutely despised her for several seasons because she came across SO hard, unyielding and childish when she didn't win/didn't get the criticism or scores that she thought she deserved. She would pout, puff out air, cross her arms and slam them across her midsection, etc. And pretty as she is, there was absolutely NOTHING inviting about her then. I don't know if cultural differences might've played a part in that, or not, but every time she came up on my screen (at that point) I just thought: "Ewwww!"

    I don't know if it's the ups and downs of her love life, TPTB taking her aside for a little "come to Jesus" talk, or her just reviewing tapes of shows where she came across as such a ballbreaking hellion that finally got through to her.

    But I'm very glad that SOMETHING finally did, because I find that I like her a lot and root for her now. Whereas before, I wouldn't've cared if she dropped and died. Didn't matter HOW fantastic she was at choreography.

    I REALLY want to see what she comes up with choreographically this go-round.

    I've no clue who he is, either, which is why my posts in this particular thread are all skewed toward Karina.

    He us this year's NFLer. Plays for the Baltimore Ravens, defense I think. The Ravens aren't one of my favorite teams so I'm not sure what position he plays.

    Glad Karina's back, but I really miss her acerbic petulance - she amused me. Now she's becoming the sort of bland, smiling pudding of a woman approved of by the easily offended.

    This is the first time I've been glad to see a football player. I don't watch football and have never seen a Superbowl, but this year, because I had a bet with someone at work, I tuned in just in time to see him run that truly awesome, even to the uninitiated, kick return. I won the coveted Red Bull, for what it's worth.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.
