"On [this] week's finale, I can assure you that [Maks] will answer every media question," his publicist, Lizzie Grubman, told The Huffington Post. We're pretty sure answering every question would take the entire show, but it's good to hear the drama won't stop Maks from making an appearance. No word yet on Hope Solo’s vague plans to dance with the other eliminated couples, however.
As for next season — well, don't count Maks out just yet. He may hate the judges, but that doesn't mean the producers hate him back. An insider told The Huffington Post that "like the audience, the producers of the show love him," and they understand the bad-boy attitude is part of his appeal.
