How does Meryl Chmerkovskiy sound to you?
Dancing With the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy is so happy to be paired with Olympian Meryl Davis, he’s already proposing to her. DWTS Season 18 starts this Monday, March 17, and ABC shared a clip from Meryl and Maks’s rehearsals. He immediately asks her about her longtime ice dance partner, Charlie White, who is also competing this season.
“So, I love you and I would love to marry you, but I need to know if you and Charlie are dating first,” Maks asks. “It's like a billion dollar question everybody seems to be asking you.” Meryl laughs, then answers, “No, we're not. We’re definitely not.” Maks replies, "Good." Nice! We may have a showmance on our hands, or a potential real romance. They are a beautiful couple, and they say opposites attract...
In the rehearsal video, Maks also asks Meryl who is going to be the better dancer, her or Charlie. She says Charlie, just because she'd like to be viewed as more of an underdog dark horse. Maks said it's a good strategy to try to stay under-the-radar … however, "that's not gonna work." It's way too late! He's Maks. She's an Olympic ice dancer. Vegas gave them the best odds to win. So did we. So did fans in this poll. Team M&M is as far from under-the-radar underdogs as it gets.
It may be too obvious that Maks and Meryl will do well, but how can you watch them in action and not think they'll shine? Just the grin on Maks's face alone says a lot.
