Derek Hough Was 'Extremely Surprised' By Maks' Fiery Words On DWTS

| Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinutePerezTVRicki LakeReality TV

We don't blame you, Derek! It was pretty dramarrific!

As we mentioned before, Dancing with the Stars contestant Maksim Chmerkovskiy started up some dramz (above) after he received an unenthusiastic response from the judges for his rumba performance with Hope Solo.

Now, Derek Hough has opened up about Maks' DWTS incident. Here's what he had to say about it:

"I was personally extremely surprised."

"I feel like the judges have been incredibly generous, but we're all very emotional."

"Being a seasoned professional, we know how the show works. We understand the ins and outs. Even last week, I pretty much told Ricki [Lake] exactly what the judges were going to say, literally verbatim. You know what to expect."

Do U agree with Derek? Or do U think the judges were in the wrong here???

    I saw three minutes of that show last night and he came off as an arrogant narcissist….poor baby, he is used to people telling him how fabulous he is and when he hears something that is not an ass kissing, he throws a baby tantrum….hey dude- if you were not on this lame show you would still be giving lessons out of your daddies studio…get a grip…you are a dancer on a reality show….deal with the reality.

    I frick'n HATE HOPE !! HER UGLY FACE MATCHES HER PERSONALITY. And Maks thinks he is gods gift to women!! he sux ass!! he clashes w/ all his partners…'cept for KIRSTIE.

    TEAM MAKSIM!!! HE DID THE RIGHT THING STANDING UP FOR HOPE AND HIS AMAZING DANCING SKILLS. I'D LIKE TO SE LEN DANCE ON THE DANCE FLOOR AND LET SOMEONE JUDGE HIM. SEE HOW HE LIKES IT WHEN SOMEONE SAYS LEN SUCK. HE AIN'T GONNA LIKE IT. GOOD JOB MAKSIM. AMAZING JOB LAST NIGHT. LEN IS JUST JEALOUS. MAKSIM IS VERY SEXY.

    What Maks said is true. The judges give Chaz better scores even though she sucks just because she "tries" or "got through it." Yet they hold the other stars up to different standards. It's lame and unfair.

    Re: ScarlettColepepper – All this is so frivilous really…don't cha think?

    Maybe Mak should retire, his need for negative attention is destructive to the show.



  12. 12

    This is why I love Maksim. He is right and I think the judges are unfair with judgement. Personally, I can't stand Carrie Ann Inaba. Len is ok and Bruno is awesome!

    Derrick is a house-cracker

    Max has no class and VERY unprofessional, he is too cocky. If anyone makes the show … it is Derek Hough with his outstanding dancing and ethics. He genuinely is a professional dancer in every way. I watch the show ONLY because of Derek and I miss Julianne. They are such great dancers. Max does not know how to teach someone how to dance. He has been in the show for so long and has yet to win. Derek humbles himself and is a real professional dancer and that is why he has won 3 times.

    first…Maks isn't Russian, so making comments about Russians being low class, well, it doesnt work here. He is Ukrainian…but i guess some of you are too uneducated to understand that these are two DIFFERENT places.

    Maks was TOTALLY CORRECT in ALL he said. He does make the show what it is…lots of people, including me, watch because of him. The main stars are the pro dancers…they do the choreography, they are the talent. The judges could EASILY be replaced…except for Bruno. He has a personality/humour and charisma that is not easily found.

    Chaz is getting a free easy ride because he/she TRIES to do well…do you not think that Hope is trying? Just because she comes in a firmer package people don't feel sorry for her that she isn't doing well. It's discrimination. Just because she is fit doesn't mean that she should easily be able to dance, she clearly has no rhythm, but she works her ass off. I think her effort surpasses Chaz's effort. I think her talent does as well. Maks was right to stand up for her, i think Len was being unreasonably mean to her just because he thinks the public will let him get away with it. Whereas, if he said those things to Chaz in such a rude a-holey way, the public would crucify him. The audience responds negatively towards the judges when they are harsh on Chaz, but not so when they are hard on Hope. It's unfair. Besides, women have to work much harder on that show than men do. Chaz just stands around while his partner dances. Its the same thing that is always done with the useless men on that show who are too old and or fat to do anything.

    Re: elecrtcse – utter nonsense!!

    its the dancers who can easily be replaced. Lots of great dancers out there. But personalities are not easily replaced and the judges are the main personalities of the show…the core of it. Max is arrogant and rude. What he said to Len was immature and disrespectful without a doubt!

    I am in complete agreement with Maks. The judges are there to critique the dancing and not do personal attacks. It is a dance competition, not America's Next Top Model. All 3 of the judges need to be replaced. There are plenty of others that could easily fill their chairs and do just as good of a job, if not better. Actually, anyone could do better.
