Maksim Chmerkovskiy Quitting Dancing with the Stars: Says He’s Drained!
Dancing with the Stars fans may be upset that they no longer have their favorite show to watch two days a week but they’re going to be downright devastated to learn that one of the most popular and entertaining professional dancers on the show may not return to the DWTS dance floor next season!
Maksim Chmerkovskiy – the Ukranian dancer who also played the role of Bachelor for the Ukranian version of ABC’s hit show – says he’s exhausted and may retire from reality TV for good:
“It takes a lot out of you. When you invest that much of you into something that’s supposed to be just work you [can] get misinterpreted. I don’t know [if I'm coming back]. We’ll see. Right now, I’m drained.”
Maks, like many Dancing with the Stars pros over the years (Julianne Hough and her brother Derek to name a few), says he’s looking for other opportunities and reveals that he’d like to open his own dance studio – cute!
Fans of the show need not worry too much about Maks’ statement about quitting, he’s likely just tired from an intense season. Besides, he quit before and returned back to the dance floor – who says he won’t do the same thing again.
The question is, will you still watch Dancing with the Stars if the loveable Maks isn’t on it?
