Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Troupe Member Nicole Volynets Get Close at NYC Lunch (PHOTOS)

If we can't catch Maksim Chmerkovskiy sizzling in the ballroom on Dancing With the Stars ;Season 17, then at least we get to see him looking hot while out on the town.

The former DWTS pro was seen having lunch with Troupe member Nicole Volynets at Cipriani in SoHo, NYC on September 17. We picture them debating about the scores from the premiere episode, going over their favorite choreography, and dishing on who they're rooting for this season. It's more likely that they just chatted about their meal and such, but hey, we can dream!

Check out photos of Maks and Nicole grabbing a bit and then leaving the restaurant with their arms around each other. But before you go quick stepping to conclusions about their relationship, remember that Maks is dating Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton. These two are just dancing pals!

Do you miss seeing Maks in the ballroom? Sound off below!
