The judges were on a roll last night … but we can’t say the same for all the dancers! Mario and Karina Smirnoff’s hot chemistry seemed to turn tepid — and Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli all noticed as they tripped over a step during their tango. As Carrie Ann put it, the two looked like they were “fighting,” and Len said he felt “bitterly disappointed.” Next victim: Marissa Jaret Winokur, who’s smile quickly turned upside down with first words from Len, who called her jive too “careful.” But that wasn’t the worst of it — Carrie Ann just flat-out said it was “boring,” leaving Winokur and Tony Dovolani to score only a 19. Even last week’s high scorers Jason Taylor and Kristi Yamaguchi couldn’t escape the judge’s harsh words — Len called the NFL star’s jive kicks “sloppy” and Carrie Ann admitted that when Kristi dances, she just doesn’t “feel much” (yet she still gave her a 9 for her tango).
