DWTS’ Maks Chmerkovskiy is busy preparing for this season’s Dancing With the Stars. Thankfully he took some time out from his busy schedule to blog about his experience with his new dance partner, Brandy, what he thinks about the other competitors and the Erin Andrews romance rumors.
Maks and Brandy’s first dance is the Viennese waltz and their second dance is most likely going to be the cha-cha-cha. With only three weeks until the premiere Maks is focused on preparing for the first dance. Maks stated,
“The first two weeks determine who’s the worst, for the lack of a better word, and by Week four or five, people start to pull away.”
Maks is enjoying working with Brandy and thinks she has quite a personality and is hilarious. Maks stated that they get along really well and are having a lot of fun.
“She’s very free and very willing to experiment. She’s not afraid to experiment even though she appears to be a bit of scaredy-cat. She’s a perfectionist, but she’s a fun perfectionist. She’s not one who drills herself. She can laugh at herself and definitely has natural potential and talent. “
Brandy does not have any dance experience so Maks is hoping her personality will help in addition to her hard work.
Maks thinks the cast this season is very “eclectic” and has a lot of potential. Here is what Maks had to say about his competitors:
“Jennifer Grey is a dancer at heart. I haven’t seen anyone take a step, so I don’t know her level of experience, but I think she’s in great shape. I think Audrina is someone who can pull away. She has Tony, who’s very excited to work with her. I think there are a few from the men’s side who can be good. Kurt Warner and Rick Fox — they know what it’s like to do something over and over again being athletes. I think Michael Bolton will know how to put on a performance. Of course, I don’t know how limber he is. I think this cast is more even than in some seasons past. “
As for Maks’ personal life – he did mention the romance rumors.
There was a lot of stuff last season about Erin [Andrews] and me, and I already see stuff this season and the cast was just announced! I just want everyone to know that there’s absolutely no way that anybody will get me to talk about anything about my personal life. I think our fans are amazing. I’ve had incredible support in the tough times and I try to give back with what I do on the dance floor. I love our extended family, but there are certain things that one must keep to themselves. I put out a lot out there — I know that — but everyone has a right to a personal life. One thing I promise is that like last season, I’m very focused on dancing, getting Brandy into the final and getting the trophy. She’s very talented and very capable of winning. We’re going to give our best. I just want everyone to understand that they will never get an answer from me or her or anyone else now or even in the next three years, God-willing, if we’re still doing this. But I want you to know that I’m not blind and I do see the rumors, but I’m not going to address them. And I’m saying that with a smile on my face.
