Has Karina Smirnoff found a new dancing partner?

The Dancing with the Stars pro – still single despite rumors linking her to everyone from ex-fiancé Maksim Chmerkovskiy to former contestant Jacoby Jones – was the object of attention on Saturday.

At the HBO’s Luxury Lounge celebrating the Golden Globes Awards, Smirnoff was spotted with Orange Is the New Black‘s Pablo Schreiber.

Schreiber, best known as corrupt corrections officer George “‘Pornstache” Mendez on the hit Netflix drama, approached Smirnoff.

She had split from Chmerkovskiy in 2009, and Schreiber is recently available. HIs wife of six years, Jessica Monty, filed for divorce just before Christmas.

“Hi, I’m Pablo … Juan Pablo, that is. The new Bachelor,” he said, according to a source, in a cheeky reference to The Bachelor, which, like, Dancing with the Stars, airs on ABC.

Smirnoff laughed it off “but seemed charmed,” says the source. They ultimately made their way to Pandora’s lounge, where rings were being gifted to celebs.

So just how serious was the exchange? “Pablo joked about getting Karina a ring right then and there,” says the observer.
