"We're good friends. That's what it comes down to," said Carter during last night's appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live when asked by Kimmel if he was dating Smirnoff.
"Would you be willing to submit to a polygraph test?" asked Kimmel.
"Yeah, absolutely," replied Carter.
"Karina would you?" asked Kimmel.
"I would," she answered. "I was saving myself for you personally, but now that you've put this out..."
"Well I screwed it up again. What are you going to do," answered Kimmel with a laugh.
Carter and Smirnoff were the twelfth couple eliminated from Dancing with the Stars ninth season during last night's live results show based on a combination on their judges' scores from Monday night's performance episode and home viewer votes cast immediately following the broadcast.
