Ralph Macchio Swears He Hasn't Peeked at His 'DWTS' Partner Karina Smirnoff's 'Playboy' Issue (VIDEO)

Ralph Macchio, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Ralph Macchio has proven to be a pretty good dancer on this season's 'Dancing With the Stars' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on ABC). We're sure he would attribute a lot of his success to his professional partner Karina Smirnoff.

The two have grown very close throughout the season, which may be why he could barely look at her on the cover of 'Playboy' on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

There are nude pictures of the dancer inside as well, but Macchio indicated he hasn't seen them. "I'm not saying there won't be a day," he admitted. "But I have sort of this big brother, sister relationship with her."

He went on to explain how he takes on a much more familial tone when he sees her, especially if she's dressing in a sexier manner. "Instead of me instantly saying, 'Wow is she beautiful and sexy,' I'm like, 'You are not going out in that, okay. You put a sweater on right now.'"

Maybe once the show wraps -- or, as Jay Leno suggested, when his wife is out of town -- Macchio will break down and look at them. Or he might just not. He may be too close to her personally to want to see her in that way.

B/T/W, IF YOU LOOK UP THE WORD "CLASS" IN THE ENCYCLOPEDIA, RALPH MACCHIO'S PICTURE WILL BE NEXT TO THE DEFINITION OF IT (among other things that he is, which are: respectful, handsome, sexy, talented, nice, sweet, humble, witty, & I could go on & on & on)! GOOD LUCK, "KARATE KID", DURING THE NEXT FEW WKS. OF "DWTS"!

In the very 1st sentence above in the story about Ralph Macchio being on DWTS this season, you stated that it was on weeknights on ABC at "11:35 P.M." (WHICH IS TOTALLY WRONG), & down below that you stated that The Tonight Show was on weeknights on NBC at 11:35 P.M. (WHICH IS TOTALLY CORRECT)! Do you people not "proofread" anything before you put it in the computer for everyone to see? I am forever finding incorrect statements that the professional people put on here (sometimes they're not really very impt. & sometimes they're so off the wall that it just amazes me what people you may have working for you)! This did not affect my day or wk. or mo. or yr. or LIFE in anyway at all; but, I just thought that I'd point that incorrect statement to you! Thanks!

I really hope that Ralph wins DWS!!! If he doesn't, something definitely won't pass the smell test; the man is such a great talent and is totally AWESOME!!!

I think having Karina as a partner may hurt him. I am now and have always been a big Ralph Machio fan, Outsiders all time fave movie (one of anyhow). Don't think shes got many fans though in comparison to other professionals, the playboy thing doubt will help any!

WOW.....there is hope for some of those coming out of Hollywood.....Ralph is a great example. I would love to see someone with that much class win it all.
