Karina Smirnoff is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, having won the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 13 with J.R. Martinez. The pro dancer is now in her 16th season on the show, and will be blogging for PEOPLE about competing with actor and retired mixed martial arts fighter Randy Couture for season 19.

Preparations for this week have been going amazingly. I've been a fan of my partner, Randy Couture, for years. My dog, Randy Smirnoff, is named after Randy Couture! When I saw he was my partner, I was like, "Oh my gosh, my dad will be so excited." Randy's his favorite fighter, too.

Being an Olympic wrestler as well as an ex-soldier, Randy has discipline and dedication that are unbeatable. For a man of Randy's stature – he's tall, very muscular, very built – it's not the easiest thing to be light on the feet and to be a "twinkle toes." He's been working so hard and has made progress, and how much he's done since Day One is amazing. I'm very proud of him.

Outlander Recap: Claire Gets Engaged! | Outlander

"Are you here by your own choice?" a redcoat asks Claire (Caitriona Balfe) at the start of this week's episode of Outlander.

It's a vital question for Claire – she waits to respond and everyone looks shifty while waiting for her to answer. "I am a guest of the Clan MacKenzie," she says at last, surprising Dougal (Graham McTavish).

The British decide to take her back to their general anyways, and Dougal insists on accompanying her. Once they reach the garrison, however, he's relentlessly mocked by the British. Claire defends Dougal, coming dangerously close to outing herself as a Scottish sympathizer. The British are so charmed by the English rose that Claire's words don't initially raise any suspicion – until Capt. Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies) shows up.
