Every attractive Dancing With the Stars duo seems to inspire dating rumors, but for Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovksiy, it's been particularly intense.

From the moment they were paired together, their chemistry was electric, and the duo rode it all the way to the Season 18 Mirror Ball title last month.

Is that chemistry anything more than professional, though? Chmerkovskiy sort of explained this and revealed the key to their relationship this week ...

Asked about his bond with Davis, he said, "About our romance?" Smiling, he said, "No, we're good. We're great. She's an amazing person."

Pressed for more, the 34-year-old explained that "[The rumors are] always circulating around us dancers. It's fine. That's the nature of what we do."

"We're always in close proximity to each other. In order to produce what Meryl and I produced, there had to have been so much chemistry, and we had it."

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis won Dancing With the Stars earlier this week, but the personal nature of the questions they've faced on their victory-lap press tour may make the partners wish they'd never taken home the Mirrored Ball.

For example, Maksim and Meryl appeared on The Wendy Williams Show today and Wendy asked the duo point-blank if they were "smushing."

After pretending they didn't know what she was talking about (In fairness, Wendy is clinging to Jersey Shore slang from like five years ago), Maks and Meryl both dodged with question, with the latter insisting, "We are not dating...we prefer to keep the private lives private."

That's certainly not gonna help put the rumors to bed! 

Nor is the fact that when Wendy turned the topic to Maksim's nude photo shoot for the latest People magazine, he and Meryl anxiously held hands.

Meryl Davis & Maksim Chmerkovskiy get into the Freestyle groove in the DWTS FINALS.

"We were just saying that this show, despite the fact that it's a reality show, puts people into really real situations," Davis coyly said of the dating rumors.

"It's challenging and we're not just coming to the show ready to dance every Monday. You go through the daily grind and it's very challenging."

"You get to know people in really fun moments and in really challenging moments, and I think that's what makes the show so successful."

"I also think that's why when the cameras stop rolling, I think that's why many of the relationships you form on the show keep going on long after the season's over."

Well, that tells us nothing, except that DWTS is awesome!

For the three remaining Dancing With the Stars competitors, it all came down to one night. One final Dancing With the Stars results show, for all the marbles.

With the guts, the glitter and the glory on the line, and with James Maslow ousted Monday, only Meryl Davis, Amy Purdy and Candace Cameron Bure remained.

Candace came in as the big underdog, but with huge fan support, with Amy as the dark horse candidate to upend Meryl, the odds-on favorite to win.

Let's find out who hoisted the Mirror Ball in Season 18 ...

Who Who Dancing With the Stars?
A Dancing With the Stars champion is crowned for Season 18. Who won it all??

For their last routine, Amy and Derek were told to get in touch with their inner mad scientist and combine an Argentine tango with a cha-cha. They scored 30/30.

Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas, for a Frankenstein’s monster of a dance, had to blend a quickstep and a samba. It went fairly well, earning 27/30.

Meryl Davis and Maks Chmerkovskiy had to produce the combination of a Foxtrot with a cha-cha, but came through with flying colors, tallying 30/30

Then at long, long last it was time for the results:
