Situation and Karina Smirnoff'Dancing With the Stars' footwork phenom Karina Smirnoff is paired this season with 'Jersey Shore' breakout star Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino. So how does she feel their chemistry on the dancefloor will be? It's a big question mark.

"I'm excited to actually start. Everyone's been rehearsing for like two and a half to three weeks and we'll start [this week]. I'm excited to start and to see if he has any rhythm, if he can dance all together," Smirnoff told PopEater on the red carpet of the MTV VMAs. Sorrentino has been wrapping the third season of 'Shore.'

Smirnoff says that while they haven't tangoed yet, they have begun to know one another. "I've met him. We talked, we had our first meeting. Very interesting! Definitely a unique special person. He's witty, he's sharp. We have our hands full with each other."
