Now we know why Maksim Chmerkovskiy of Dancing With the Stars looked so fit during lunch at The Little Door in West Hollywood last week — he had been practicing for DWTS Season 14 of course!

Despite the rumors, Maks is in fact returning to the show and will be partnered with Little House on the Prarie actress, Melissa Gilbert.

Looks like we'll be able to stare at this Ukrainian dancer's biceps for yet another season. Thank you, ABC, it really means a lot!
