We miss Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s gorgeous looks, dancing, honesty, Tom Bergeron butt pinches, and his faces when the Dancing With the Stars judges are talking. But maybe more than anything, we miss the pro’s sense of humor.
If you also miss Maks's dry wit, scroll down to watch his "Would You Ever" video from backstage at Bethenny Frankel's talk show, Bethenny.
He's asked some good questions, including "Would you ever star in Magic Mike 2?" Some guys might not be comfortable stripping next to the likes of Channing Tatum, but Maks is hardly a shrinking violet. His answer: "Are you serious? Are we casting? A hundred million percent. Whoever's watching — yes, I would definitely do it." Yes! Shake what Mama Chmerkovskiy gave ya. (Please cast him, Channing.)
Maks isn't competing on the current Season 17, but his brother Valentin Chmerkovskiy is dancing with Elizabeth Berkley. Maks was asked if he'd ever date a girl who used to date his brother. "No, I would not," Maks said. "That's weird." Besides, they have very different "types" as they've mentioned before.
Every "Would You Ever" question is pretty great, but here's a funny one: "Would you ever do drag?" Maks's deadpan response: "I've done 13 seasons of Dancing With the Stars. Clearly, yes." Ha!
Maks has been in the tabloids lately for reportedly dating model Kate Upton. While neither one has confirmed the relationship, they've been seen holding hands in public. He was asked if he'd ever let the tabloids believe he was dating someone famous when he was not. (Clever question, someone out there.) He said he would not... but he knows people who have done it. Hm, always keeping us on our toes!
Watch the whole thing for more of his funny, revealing responses. We miss you, Maks!
