Maksim Chmerkovskiy may be surly, blunt, critical and not politically correct, but it's just because he's a serious competitor who wants to win. Period.
Despite being demonstrably outclassed by the field week in and week out, Bristol Palin is still waltzing and spinning. Which has Maks' head spinning.
The fact that Bristol the Pistol is even in the top four on Dancing With the Stars has reportedly rankled Chmerkovskiy, who's partnered with Brandy.
Bristol Palin's surprisingly long stint on Dancing With the Stars has captivated millions. Do not court Maksim Chmerkovskiy among those millions.
“Maksim is very emotional and takes this show very seriously, if you haven’t already seen. He really wants to win,” a source says of the Ukrainian pro.
“He works extremely hard and finds it depressing when people he thinks aren’t worthy of their current position get further then they possibly should.”
He and Brandy are both so competitive and hungry, tensions often rise between them - and they're allies. Imagine how he feels about Bristol Palin.While acknowledging some bad blood, a source says not to look into the grudge too much: “To say he simply doesn’t like her might be a little much.”
“He is more not liking the whole situation of potentially losing to someone who he believes has significantly less talent than himself and Brandy.”
What do you think? Can Bristol possibly make it to the final three? If she does, either Brandy, Jennifer Grey or Kyle Massey will have to go home.
Bristol was last in scoring Minday, but that matters little, if at all. It comes down to votes. Who are you rooting for on Dancing With the Stars?
