Dancing with the Stars Recap: Mario, Karina Smirnoff Impress

by at . Comments

Should Mario Lopez be jealous?

On the opening night of Dancing with the Stars, Lopez's former partner and current girlfriend, Karina Smirnoff, didn't just earn the highest score - she did so with a new celebrity... also named Mario!

Mario (the R&B singer) and Karina earned 24 points, eight from each of the judges, for their rendition of the Fox Trot on a night where the six male celebrities performed.

"You can dance!" Carrie Ann Inaba told Mario. "Ladies, this is the standard you're going to have to watch out for. We want to see this on the dance floor."

Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor also moved like he was going after Tom Brady in the pocket, earning 22 points with Edyta Sliwinska; while Chilean actor Christián de la Fuente scored 21 out of 30 points.

None of the other men earned more than 20 points, with the evening's lowest score going to Adam Carolla and beautiful reigning champ Julianne Hough.

Which male on Dancing with the Stars do you think should go home first?

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
