If we had to guess which DWTS duo were the most likely to hook up, we'd probably have to go with James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd! However, these two were definitely a close second!
The chemistry between Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis is pretty undeniable, especially when you consider they JUST won the Mirror Ball Trophy together! But with each passing week, we couldn't help but wonder if they would become more than just dance partners!
Well Maks' brother Val Chmerkovskiy spoke out about their relationship and says there's a LOT of love between these two, but not in the way we were hoping! He says:
"He loves her probably more than I've seen him love another woman—he loves and adores her—but it's like a King Kong type of relationship."
Um, did he just call Maks King Kong??
Luckily Val clarified his statement, saying:
"She's precious, and he's gentle with her because he wants to see her shine and he won't want to hurt her. He's willing to calm down for her because she's the last person he wants to see cry and the last person he wants to hurt."
There were definitely some sparks between the two throughout the season, and it probably doesn't help that Maks said he wanted to make ice-dancing babies with Meryl!
Based on some of the dance moves we saw during the finale, we definitely believe him!
We can dream, can't we??
