Maks and DWTS host Tom Bergeron have a longstanding tradition of Maks pinching Tom’s butt after the judges’ give their critiques. Since Tom won his first Emmy for Best Reality TV Host just last night, he got his traditional butt pinch but also an extended kiss on the lips from Kirstie. It went on for five or six full seconds, as Maks faced the cameras with his arms out like, “You see what I’m dealing with?” “That’s for your Emmy!” Kirstie shouted as Maks finally took her up to the Celebriquarium.
See how many ways it pays to be an Emmy winner! Don’t ever try for a Golden Globe or an Oscar, Tom, or Kirstie may try to get the two of you a room!
