Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Out of Dancing With the Stars?

by at . Comments

The rumors are swirling again, as they seem to every spring and fall as Dancing With the Stars prepares to unveil a new cast: Will Maksim Chermkovskiy return?

He certainly didn’t endear himself to the judges last season when he made arrogant quips to Len Goodman about how the elder statesman should leave the show.

Even though he claimed in the same breath that “this is my show, you know,” is Maks calling it a career? He's hinted that he might, and ABC won't comment.

The DWTS producers won’t reveal which pros will return for the 14th season until they announce the latest round of celebrities (February 28 on Good Morning America). 

When the new season begins March 19, there would be a gaping void without Maks - love him, loathe him or a little of both - that very few if any celebs could fill.

EW even lists the obvious reasons why:

  • His passion makes for great TV. He's over the top sometimes, but he cares.
  • He's an institution at DWTS, having been with the show since Season 2.
  • He has yet to win the Mirror Ball trophy. C'mon, Maks. One more shot?
  • He's actually a very good teacher ... occasional tough love and all.
  • Women seem to love images such as the one above.

What do you think? Would DWTS be the same without Maks?

If they do not bring Max back on DWTS, myself and more fans than they can afford to lose would no longer tune in to watch. Yep, it's as simple as that!

Maks is what helps make the swhow what it is. The judges should be addressed about their rude, hurtful comments to some contestants. Many times it is a personal attack that they are not able to change or have not had the time to. Any comments Maks has made is far out numbered by rude comments from the judges! I had apportunity to meet and get a HUG from Maks on their tour in Las Vegas. He was gracious and a moment I will never forget. I have never danced much in my life but when he put his arm around my waist I felt like I could have just followed him and actually danced! Of couse in reality I know better but would love to have that feeling again, and again.

Maks better be there or I will not.

Oh may I please add that Maks doesn't really need the show He has 3 going on 4 successful dance studios that he founded and co-owns. I don't think he really needs the show he does it because he loves it. So anybody who says he needs the exposure really just needs to pipe down

I personally love Maks. If you're looking for a pro who truly cares about his partners its Maks. If you're looking for a pro will go the extra mile to get the best ouf of his partner its Maks. Val Chmerkovskiy is another who gives his all to his partner. He's not usually as harsh as Maks is but he works his butt of it would be a shame to see either of them go. Mark and Derek are also 2 amazing pros who should never leave the show. Without these 4 dancers Theres no show. So producers of DWTS please Bring our Maks back. He's a bit part of the show and has a big heart. Yes he has a big ego as well but its just who he is. Don't punish him for being a true human being. We all go off at the mouth before thinking when truly irritated.

Also, Max needs another partner like Mel B and take home the trophy!

By not having Max return the producers will be showing their true colors. Sure, Max went way out there and opened his mouth before engaging his brain. SO HAVE THE JUDGES(ALL THREE) and yet we still see them up there. I like all of the dancers and the judges. I prefer them to be honest and I preferred to hear Max being honest. No......Hope wasn't fantastic, but Max stood beside her 100%. That's what he is supposed to do. She wasn't getting encouragement from the judges so Max threw in his encouragement. The show is so much fun and Max just has to come back...........end of story.

MAKSIM MAKES THE SHOW. PLAN AND SIMPLE. IF THEY WERE COMPLAINING LAST SEASON THAT THE RATINGS WERE DOWN, I HATE TO SEE WHAT THEY THINK IF THEY LET MAKS AND HIS BROTHER SLIDE THROUGH THEIR FINGERS.

IF ANYONE ON DWTS THINKS MAKS IS BAD FOR THE SHOW, THEY NEED THINK AGAIN. THERE IS ONE REASON AND ONE REASON ONLY THAT I WATCH DWTS AND IT MAKS. NO MAKS, NOT WORTH WATCHING.

Maks attracts ratings. No Maks, no female following. Are the producers of DWTS nuts. What are they thinking? Everyone loves a bad boy!
