Mike Sorrentino aka “The Situation” and his beautiful professional dance partner Karina Smirnoff may be facing elimination Tuesday night after scoring the lowest score of the night on Monday’s “Dancing With the Stars”. Read more on our personal favorite Mike Sorrentino and see video of his Argentine Tango below.
After receiving the lowest score on Monday’s Dancing With the Stars, Mike Sorrentino was very upset.
The judges were very harsh with Judge Bruno Tonioli called “The Situations” tango “a terrible mess”. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba said it was a “rough ride.”
“I don’t know what their deal was. I really don’t know,” Sorrentino, 27, later said. “I was upset. I actually stormed off upset because I tried so hard. I really did. I changed my haircut, I don’t know.”
Mike said he was happy with pulling off the difficult lifts in their dance routine.
“Once I landed all those lifts and the judges were trashing me? I’ll be honest with you, it was in one ear and out the other,” he added. “In the back of my head, I knew those lifts were extremely hard. I tried my best, and if they didn’t see it and wanted to be negative, so be it.”
Karina, 32, added, “Honestly, I think he showed quite a lot of improvement last week. I think we can take it as a compliment. They wanted to see more, and we appreciate their faith in us, but sometimes, come on, throw us a bone!”
Smirnoff hopes Monday’s show has a “reverse effect, where the judges are really mean and the fans really stand behind us, because we really want to make it through. We have so many great ideas for next week. I think we’re going to be okay, though, regardless.”
The Situation said of their performance, “I really did try my best and hopefully the viewers saw that. I really put in the work and practiced, and I hope they put us through to the next week because I tried so hard.”
