Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Sore Dancing With the Stars Losers?

by at . Comments

Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy made it all the way to the semifinals before being eliminated on Tuesday evening's Dancing With the Stars results show.

But instead of going out on a high note, did the soccer star and her mercurial pro partner demonstrate the bad attitude they've been accused of in the past?

Certainly not in the immediate aftermath of their elimination, when they were gracious to one another and to their fans before their last dance of the season:

In the last nine weeks, the pair weren't the first or only couple to be criticized by the judges, but they were the ones who made it into a controversial issue.

Starting with Chmerkovskiy lashing out at Len Goodman, the couple's combative ways - with each other and the judges - was a continual thing all season.

In a video recap of Monday's performances, Solo complained about her scores: "Sevens? The same thing I got in week one. Kiss my booty," she said.

"The scores at this point, the judges at this point mean nothing."

The pair were also overheard swearing about the judges as they awaited their second set of scores during Monday's performances: "F--- 'em," they said.

Hope then reportedly refused all interviews after the program.

What do you think? Did their attitude and competitive ways actually hurt them this season, with the judges and with fans? And are you sad they're gone?


The comment Carrie Ann made to max on Monday about a laugh on his face was VERY unecessary and Hope did not deserve to win, but she did deserve a little lifting up instead of all down grading.
Sorry, Max and Hope had the right to feel negative.
Actually when Max commented to Len in the first place, it was said with a smile and a joke just like the judges say to them. This is all so unnecessary.


maks has been picked on constantly by those three monkeys who are supposed to be judges. They are not professional and behave as children. They think they can be cruel to anyone who won't genuflect to them. Bravo Maks!!!!..........Fire the judges and the show will be better and certainly more honest.


she is such a sore loser, but we saw it before last night. how does she survive the world of sports??? awful.


My bottom line was that Hope just was NOT that good a dancer. I was surprised when Kristen was voted off...Maks has a large fan base which is why I think Hope lasted as long as she did. I think Carrie Ann does have a beef with Maks and they need to get it fixed...it is NOT pleansant to witness and is not fair to the contestant. BUT Hope's time to go was long overdue. Sorry Maks.


Hope and Max are BOTH sore losers! Kristin Cavallari was a much better dancer than Hope and should have lasted longer than her. I'm sure Kristin was upset to have left the show WAY too early, but she wasn't a baby about it and refusing interviews on her final night. Good ridance to Hope...did she think she was going to win or something?!


Nobody likes a sore loser even if it's thought to be an unfair elimination. Hope lost a lot of credibility with me in her last comments---and Maks was so petulant and spoiled during this season that I had little respect for his remarks either. I'm really disappointed in them both.


Maks and Hope were rude, childish, disrespectful and snarky. The judges are there to judge and I think they are doing a great job of it. I'm happy to see Hope and Maks with their snide grins leave the show.


The judges are so blatant about who they like or dislike, especially Carrie Ann. They flat out do not like Maks and it really shows. They low balled this girl the whole time she was on and the critiques of her were unbelievable. They were never that hard on Chaz,Carson and especially Rob K. I can see that they really want a Kardashian to win. It is pretty obvious! I think that the judges were really obvious this year about who they wanted to stay and who they wanted to leave. Very disappointing.


I wish Hope waved her bitch flag earlier in the season, I would have liked her more.I love that they were vocal with the judges.It wasnt about being poor sports at all.All season the judges were hard on Hope.So Kudos to Maks & Hope.JR is a good dancer but he had this wrapped up from the start with the pity vote alone.
