When Dancing With the Stars Season 18 first started, ABC showed an early rehearsal clip with Maksim Chmerkovskiy telling Meryl Davis he loves her and wants to marry her. He was joking, but now that we’ve reached the Finals, some people think he should give the idea some serious thought.

DWTS judge Carrie Ann Inaba was just on Access Hollywood, and she said Maks and Meryl are one of the most fascinating couples to watch. Billy Bush asked if she thought they might be "carrying on" off the floor. Carrie Ann answered, "You know, I think — not that I should be giving marriage advice — but I think these two should get married. I think she's wonderful for him."

Access’s Kit Hoover agreed. Carrie Ann said M&M support each other, Meryl can keep up with Maks, and Meryl is so subtle in her approach. Billy agreed, saying if a woman tries to change a man, that doesn't work, but it's different if a man changes just because that woman is there. Carrie Ann said M&M have that mutual respect, but she added that she has no idea what’s happening with them behind the scenes. Still, she said she’s happy for Maks this season, and it sounds like this particular trio would be thrilled if the Maks and Meryl friendship turned out to be more than friendship.

What do you think? Can you see these two getting together off the show, or is that just not realistic, considering their different jobs, locations and personalities (and possible other relationships)?

The DWTS Season 18 Finals will air over two nights: Monday, May 19 from 8 to 9:30 p.m. ET and Tuesday, May 20 from 9 to 11 p.m. ET on ABC.
