As Dancing with the Stars comes down the home stretch, tensions are high, especially with the outspoken Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Maks and Hope Solo struggled through the Argentine tango and berated by the judges, however it was Carrie Ann's remarks that struck a chord with the duo.
Carrie Ann remarked particularly to Maks, "That's fine Maks, you can go ahead and keep smiling."
As the pair talked to Brooke Burke, Hope erupted and defended her partner.
Maks was smiling because we should be smiling. So Carrie Ann, thank you, Maks was smiling. This is my partner. Finally, we're happy!
Maks tried to cool his partner down but the damage was done.
Afterwards, Maks let his feelings known during the post show interviews., shouting "F— Carrie Ann, next question though he said this jokingly.
He did go on and say he had no idea what Carrie Ann was talking about and would like to know how he can address it.
Let's see if Hope and Maks can stay long enough for him to find out.
