(LAS VEGAS) — Dancing with the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff recently celebrated her birthday in Las Vegas and told People magazine her birthday wish would be to have Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow as a celebrity partner on the show.
Smirnoff, who earned the coveted Mirror Ball trophy last fall with actor J.R. Martinez, says, “All I want for my birthday is for Tim Tebow to dance on Dancing with the Stars.”
Smirnoff says, “Tim is a very talented athlete, that was clear when we saw his performance this past season with Denver. All [that] is missing is to see if he has the dance skills. That would make him an all around athlete and someone that I would love to dance with on the show.”
