Maksim Chmerkovskiy Won't Be Returning as a Dancer to 'Dancing with the Stars'

Maksim Chmerkovskiy has just confirmed he will not be returning as a dancer to Dancing with the Stars.

“I’m done dancing,” the 34-year-old dancer said on The View on Tuesday (July 29). “I feel like it’s time.”

“I loved the experience,” he added. “When I came back to the show, it was not the same…I was different, probably…When I came back, I saw this amazing talent, Val [Chmerkovskiy, his brother] included…I looked at it and thought they can do much more and better, I was taking up a huge spot.”

Maks finally won the mirror ball during season eighteen with Olympian partner Meryl Davis.

ARE YOU SAD that Maks won’t be dancing next season???

    He is gorgeous and so sad he will not be dancing on DWTS. Show is about washed up anyway. He does not need jlo’s money.

    I probably will not watch DWTS without Mak. He was one of the best dancers and one of the best looking. He and Cheryl were my favorites.

    You are one of the main reasons our family watches dwis. You bring some life to the show with you comments, and reminding the judges you know just as much about the dance as they do, maybe more. Can’t you think about it one more time. We know that you will have a bright future, and maybe someday you will return.

  23. 23
    Mel Says:

    You are the main reason our family will NOT watch dwts. You suck the life out of the show with your comments, and thinkining you know as much or more than the judges do. Don’t think about it one more time. STAY AWAY! You have a secure future as J-Lo’s boy toy, and here’s hoping you never return.

    Don’t like the changes made on the show. Watched last season only because Max had a chanced to win with the partner he had, In all the years I watched the show that was only the second time he could have come close to winning.
