In the video, Meryl said she was really excited to be paired with Maks, and he's good looking. They addressed the fact that Meryl had worked with Derek on their Olympic routine. They are a little flirty. Maks seems to be channeling his nice side.
So, it should come as no surprise that Meryl is fantastic. Like really, really fantastic. Sharp, expressive, she looked great all around. Her spins are just amazing. The cheers basically drowned Carrie Ann out.
"You're nice on ice, but you're good on wood!" Len said. Bruno called her the queen of spins.
Score: 24/30. Too low!
