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.
