Dancer Tribute 2/7/12: Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Odessa, Ukraine), What is your favorite dance or rant by Maksim Chmerkovskiy?

Maks1Dancer Tribute 2/7/12: Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Odessa, Ukraine)

Ahhh, the sweet, sexy eye candy, known as the Chmerkovskiy brothers Val & Maks) on Dancing with the Stars.  Maks you know you look hot!!!

My favorite quote from one of his dance partners was from Laila Ali, when she said something like, “don’t get no attitude with me, I said I want to do the step again.”  Stuff like that cracks me up, because Laila wasn’t taking no mess from Maks!!!

Maks hasn’t won the Mirror Ball trophy YET, but I think he came the closest to it with great dancers like Laila Ali, Mel B and Erin Andrews.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Kirstie Alley, but with some celebrities, they stay on longer, perhaps not due to talent, but due to ratings.  Those that come to mind are Bristol “dancesstiffasaboard” Palin and Chaz “hewillbeonDWTSbecauseCherannouncedsheiscoming” Bono!

There is a big difference in his facial expression when Maks is dancing with someone with TALENT (i.e. Laila, Mel, Erin) versus when he is dancing with someone who is struggling (i.e. Misty, Denise, Hope).

When Maks dances with Laila, I felt he was more relaxed and enjoyed dancing.  Same thing with Mel B., she almost outshone him as a dancer.  Talk about a flamboyant, show stealer!

Here are his celebrity dance partners for the past 11 seasons for DWTS:
Season 2: Tia Carrere, 6th place
Season 3: Willa Ford, 7th place
Season 4: Laila Ali, 3rd place
Season 5: Mel B, 2nd place
Season 7: Misty May Treanor, 10th place
Season 8: Denise Richards, 12th place
Season 9: Debi Mazar, 12th place
Season 10: Erin Andrews, 3rd place
Season 11: Brandy, 4th place
Season 12: Kirstie Alley, 2nd place
Season 13 Hope Solo, 4th place

I am opening my big mouth and putting my 2 cents in:
Season 2: Tia Carrere, Is it cheating to do the Tango that she did in True Lies!
Season 3: Willa Ford, Middle of the pack
Season 4: Laila Ali, WAS CHEATED, SHOULD HAVE WON!
Season 5: Mel B, WAS CHEATED, SHOULD HAVE WON!
Season 7: Misty May Treanor, she was too stiff
Season 8: Denise Richards, fraidy cat, too scared to dance
Season 9: Debi Mazar, some comedians should take the show more seriously
Season 10: Erin Andrews, she was a good dancer
Season 11: Brandy, Bad chemistry, no connection which is needed in dance
Season 12: Kirstie Alley, SO CLOSE TO THE PRIZE
Season 13 Hope Solo, She stayed in the contest waaaay too long

Wait – stop the presses!  Can I give a quick DANCE SHOUT OUT to the sexiest man in the world, Arnold Schwarzenegger, for doing the delicious Tango with Tia Carrere in one of my favorite movies, True Lies???

I’m glad that Maks is telling it like it is and ranting about DWTS.  As a fan of the show, you can easily see how some pros always get good dance partners (Derek Hough) 3-time winner with partners like Brooke Burke, Nicole Scherzinger and Jennifer Grey.  While some pros always get bad partners (Jonathan Roberts) with most all his partners including Heather “pleasestopturningthosedamnflipsthatmakeyourfakelegfalloff” Mills or Macy “yesshecansingbutherdancingishorrible” Gray.

I get mad and angry when I watch and someone who is completely stiff, or just can’t dance at all, stays so the show can get good ratings – hello Bristol & Chaz.  It seems like Mark told Bristol that she was getting better to boost her confidence, but that seemed to be fairy tale in her head only.  She didn’t even ATTEMPT or try to do better, just kept coming back week after week with the same horrible dancing.  Makes me shout in anger at DWTS at the TV!  Now at least Chaz TRIED.  He kept practicing and I loved the finale dance that he did with Buddy Schwimmer!

I am a true fan of Maks.  Actually I watch the show because of the PRO dancers, not the celebrities.  And sometimes I will vote for a couple because I like the pro dancer, such as Cheryl Burke, Maks, Louie Van Amstel, etc.

Keep ranting Maks, you have been cheated out of that mirror ball trophy at least twice.  I’ll be watching and rooting for you.  I hope you a good partner again and I hope this is your year to SHINE!
