Maks Doesn't Know If He's Returning Yet!

With rumors swirling over which celebs will be part of this season's Dancing with the Stars, there's someone else people are wondering about -- bad boy of the ballroom, Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

He speaks his mind and pushes his partners to the limit. Would Dancing with the Stars be the same without headstrong Maksim Chmerkovskiy?

Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke Charvet will announce the new celebrity cast of Dancing with the Stars on Good Morning America Feb. 28, but when it comes to the pro dancers, Maksim Chmerkovskiy truly has no idea if he'll be part of season 14.

Chmerkovskiy told ET Canada recently, "I still don't know if I'm on the show." The outspoken dance-man teased, "I would still not tell you if I did but I'm not lying to you. I didn't get the call yet."

When ET Canada joked about a ratings slip should he not return, Maksim Chmerkovskiy shot back: "Contrary to what some a-hole said in the past, it's not my show."

Burn! Feel the sting of his words, judges. Eh, we love the sassy side of Maksim Chmerkovskiy and let's face it, his partners turn out to be decent.

We hope a little attitude here and there isn't going to prevent him from taking a twirl around the floor this season.

All kidding aside, Maksim Chmerkovskiy went on to say, "Look, I'm happy to return every season. Every off-season, something changes, something happens to make me realize how good I have it, and that's the most important thing."

He finished, "A little bit of competitiveness goes away and a little bit of appreciation takes over and I'm very appreciative of the show and what the show has done for me and for us. And, I shouldn't be really upset about the little things and appreciate the big ones."

How sweet. Now, say something snarky and keep us on our toes, Chmerkovskiy?

Don't forget to watch Good Morning America Tuesday, Feb. 28 to find out who the new cast will be.

Names like Gavin DeGraw and Ryan O'Neal (he was supposed to dance last season) are being tossed around, but you never can tell with this show.

One name we can reportedly cross off the list is Herman Cain. It was recently revealed he can't dance in an eight-count -- just a nine-count. Don't thank us for that zinger. That came from his executive assistant Lisa Reichert.

BRING MAX BACK! If he's not back next season, this will be the last season I watch the show. Give him partners that are the same caliber as Derrick gets.

I agree with the fans to bring max back. I also feel the show is not the same without him. He always has a positive attitude, not only with dancing technique, but life itself. he is an inspiration to fans of all ages.

I find dancing with the stars very bland now that Max is not there. He is not only gorgeous he is the best dancer they had. If they are smart they will do everything to get him to return .I really don,t care if I miss watching dancing with the stars or not When Max was on I watched every show . BRING MAX BACK

I sawa Dancing With Stars last night...the beginning of the show and there is no MAKs. The whole show sucked. No one has any moves and really don't care seems like. I don't think I am going to watching it anymore unless MAKS is brought back....That's final.

SANDRA February 26, 2013 | 11:26 AM

Max is off the show and I am not going to watch it anymore. You all will be off the show because there won't be a show anymore. Not without Max. Maybe 1 or 2 more seasons. It will be too boring!

You need to replace the judges before getting rid of Maks. I will never watch the show again if he is gone.

Lynn D February 26, 2012 | 12:04 PM

I vote for any celebrity paired with Maks at the beginning of the season, just so I can keep watching HIM! He is such an incredibly good dancer and always masculine, a real leading man.Dancing with the Stars would be boring without him.

Max had better return to DWTS, or there will be alot less people watching the reality show. We love Max because he has what it takes to make the show interesting, he is y, charismatic, manly, wonderfully talented in oh so many ways. He is what keeps the show going. I won't be watching along with alot of other people. We are bored with the rest of them.. Max has to be there, he just has to be there, to keep the show alive and fun.

SHARON February 24, 2012 | 8:27 PM

If Max doesn't return to DWTS, I won't be watching it again. He is the one we wait to see... because he is gorgeous and charming and manly and bold.. we love it when he speaks his mind. He is usually saying what everyone else is thinking and are afraid to speak it. We love Max... we hope he is there, if not, too bad for you'll be down the tubes.

Maks has to return or the show will be lacking greatly. He brings talent, iness, charisma and yes sometimes drama to the dance floor. The drama keeps it interesting. Maks had better get his call back. Two people I wouldn't miss this season are Carrie Ann and Len. They've over stayed their welcome for me.

Jane W. February 24, 2012 | 2:45 PM

Oh, Maks has to return to the show. He makes the show.

Kate February 23, 2012 | 3:41 PM

I hope so! That's some great eye candy! I don't care what Len says, KEEP YOUR SHIRT OFF, MAKS!

Wonton12 February 23, 2012 | 3:33 PM

In my opinion, Maks makes the show. Yes, he's outspoken & his passion for perfection sometimes causes him problems, but he's an amazing talent, and to me and many others, he makes the show.
