Ukrainian professional dancer Karina Smirnoff studied ballet, aerobics, figure skating, and piano before setting her sights on ballroom dancing. In 1992, at the age of fourteen, Karina moved to the U.S., where she graduated high school and set out to pursue a law degree before her dancing career took off. Over her career, Karina has won dozens of titles. She has been the U.S. National Champion five times, a three-time champion at the U.S. Open, a five-time champion at the Dutch Open, and in 2006 she and her celebrity partner, Saved by the Bell’s Mario Lopez, came in second place on season three of ABC’s hit competition show Dancing with the Stars. Karina has also had small acting parts on the Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana and in the 2004 Richard Gere film Shall We Dance? Although Karina has never willingly disrobed on camera, she did give us a glimpse of her butt crack and right cheekage in a 2007 episode of Dancing with the Stars. For a girl named after a well-known panty peeler, Ms. Smirnoff seems to have forgotten to wear hers under her skimpy outfit that night.
