The thirteenth season of Dancing With the Stars kicks off next month, and Ukraine’s Karina Smirnoff and Russia’s Anna Trebunskaya will once again hit the dance floor with celebrity partners. Here’s who the lovely ladies will be dancing with this season.


J.R. Martinez – Karina Smirnoff

J.R. Martinez, a former actor and retired U.S. Army soldier, has been paired with Karina Smirnoff. Martinez played Brot Monroe in ABC’s All My Children, and like his character, Martinez suffered severe burns during his time in service.

A five-time U.S. National Champion, World Trophy Champion, and Asian Open Champion, Karina has danced with Mario Lopez, Billy Ray Cyrus, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, and Ralph Macchio in past seasons of DWTS. Sexy Smirnoff has also posed nude for PETA and Playboy.
