Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff'Karate Kid' Ralph Macchio was expected to do well, and he didn't disappoint in the premiere of 'Dancing with the Stars.' All that waxing on and off must have helped the youthful-looking star, as he gave a graceful and commanding performance of the fox trot.

Paired with professional dancer Karina Smirnoff, the couple earned the highest marks of the week with 24 points.

"That was just an amazing surprise," Carrie Ann Inaba said of the couple's performance.

"You've got great potential," Len Goodman agreed. "It was a bit rough around the edges. I loved the music. I loved the dancing. It's the best fox trot tonight." Watch the video below.
