Glamour magazine asked Maks “What is the best way for a woman to impress you?” and he said to keep it real. “Just try not to impress me. It's when you try to impress somebody that it all goes to hell. Just be you, and don't try to impress me. The fake nails and the hair extensions come off, and then you're like, 'What is all of this?' And then you take your eyelashes off, and remove all the make-up, and then suddenly you're [someone named] Bob. The more real you can be the better.”
Glamour also asked Maks about the rumored upcoming DWTS All-Stars season and which of his past partners he’d want to dance with. He couldn’t pick. “I think the fans should vote,” Maks said. “Because what if Mel [B]and Kirstie [Alley] both want to do it? Then what happens?” (Then we re-pair them with other pros and make you dance with Erin Andrews.)
