<p><span></span>After their elimination from <em>Dancing With the Stars</em> last night, <strong>Ralph Macchio</strong> and <strong>Karina Smirnoff</strong> tell <em>Life & Style</em> their theory for why they didn't make it to the finals. "They [the judges] were rude and disrespectful," Ralph says.</p>
The duo received 48 out of 75 total possible points, landing them in the bottom spot. They felt the judges' harsh critiques hindered their ability to receive enough votes to push them into the finals. "They said everything but "We don't want you in the finals,'" Karina says.
Still, the two are proud of their accomplishments, regardless of whether the outcome was fair or not. "We had something that you can't create, fake or force," says Karina. "We have something that was given to us. It worked perfectly, and we truly enjoyed every moment. We clicked from day one and with or without the finals or the mirror ball trophy, we had something bigger than all of this."
