I'm not a fan of Karina. I have disliked her since the sourpuss look on her face when she and Mario did not win which I considered poor sportsmanship. And I don't think that it was right of Maks to publicly complain about Karina's partner. But all that said, even I am slowly coming around to thinking that she's had more than her fair share of weak partners. She's had a few good ones mixed in there since Mario - but she's had her share of weak ones too, which stands out even more having Steve immediately after Rocco. In addition to that, I don't think that the personality of most of her partners meshes with Karina's personality. Steve, Rocco, and Billy Ray all come from the school of "Even when it's not happy and you know it sucks, clap your hands and pretend everything is great". Karina is FAR from that world. That sort of "I love being here and everything is great" outlook can be very refreshing. But it can also come across as fake or insincere. IF (and I'm not saying this is the case) she's seeing a side of Steve away from the cameras (or Rocco, or Billy Ray) that is not the same as the "oh isn't he so kind and happy" personality that we're getting in front of the cameras, I can understand why she would get to a point of thinking the producers are doing it to her on purpose. There was a point last night watching Karina and Steve dance that I thought to myself "Hasn't she paid her penance by now for that sour puss loser look?"
