Maksim Chmerkovskiy is best known in the U.S. as one of the resident pros and hunks on Dancing With the Stars. But he also just finished a starring turn on the Ukranian version of The Bachelor in his native country!

We think he may have gotten engaged last night. Hard to say.

No one at THG speaks Ukranian, unfortunately, and this clip we found online isn't subtitled, so you tell us. There's ... a ring and a lot of kissing!

The episode was filmed months ago, so there's no word on if they're still together ... but he was sorta grinding on Cheryl Burke last weekend.

Maksim, who made the DWTS finals with Kirstie Alley in the show's 12th season, was previously engaged to another co-star, Karina Smirnoff.

We hope it worked out for the best, however it worked out - and we promise when Ashley Hebert gives out her final rose, we'll understand her.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy turned down The Bachelor in the U.S., but has assumed the leading role in the version of the hit show in his native Ukraine.

The Dancing With the Stars hunk is the star of the inaugural edition of the romance reality series beginning March 17 on the Ukraine's STB network.

Why did he turn it down here - as did Chris Lambton, which ultimately gave us Brad Womack for a second time - but agree to it in Eastern Europe?

"There has never been a show such as this in Ukraine," he wrote on his blog. "That makes me think that a first season would be the most 'real.'"

"I thought about everything VERY long. I know it's hard to find somebody you can connect to on a TV project like this, but nothing is impossible."

"I can't reveal anything, but I am very pleasantly surprised so far."

Look out, Brad Womack. You've got major competition in the bachelor department.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy has confirmed that he's starring in the Ukrainian version of the ABC reality show. On his website, the professional dancer - who has been linked in the past to Dancing with the Stars contestants and fellow pros - says he turned down the American Bachelor and writes:

"This is the first thing in a VERY LONG TIME that I'm doing for ME. For the first time I don't really care what people think. First time that I'm not being 'judged', 'placed' or 'criticized.'"

Filing has wrapped on Maksim's season. While we wait to see if he found love, though, we need to know: From which of these studs would you rather take it?
