Happy birthday to Mr. Sex on a Stick himself, Maksim Chmerkovskiy!
The Dancing With the Stars pro turns 33-years-sexy today (January 17), and every year he gets just a little bit hotter — whether clean-shaven, with scruff, shirtless, or dressed like a dark angel.

He may be leaving us at the end of 2013, but he's ours for another year, so let's hope it's a good one!

In the meantime, feast your eyes on some of Maks's best photos — and cross your fingers that he wins his coveted Mirror Ball trophy before age 34!
