It was no real surprise when Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy took home the mirror ball trophy on the Season 18 finale of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ — their chemistry has been scorching all season, and apparently part of the reason for their win is that Maks loves Meryl more than he’s ever loved any other woman!
We were kind of wondering why Dancing With The Stars even bothered with a full two-hour finale — how did they not just hand over the trophy to Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy like, immediately? Not only has their dancing been on point since Season 18 began, but their chemistry has just been totally off the charts. And, as Maks’ brother, Valentin Chmerkovskiy so eloquently put it, he loves her more than any other woman!
‘Dancing With The Stars’: Maksim Chmerkovskiy Loves Meryl Davis More Than Any Other Woman
According to Val, Meryl & Maks’ love goes beyond make-outs, marriage, or babies. “She was good for him, but I feel it wouldn’t do their love justice [to do any of those things],” he told Us Weekly. This was Maks’ first DWTS win, and he definitely gave all the credit to Meryl for being such an amazing dancer.
“One makeout session in the middle of the dance or to label it that they are a couple—it sounds great, but that’s not what it is. 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.”
He went on to explain to the mag that “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.”

Their love is so much “bigger than a kiss,” Val said. “He definitely loves her, and I know she loves him back.”
“We as a family love her, too. We love Meryl.”
How sweet is that?
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are Meryl and Maks dating for realsies? Or could they be playing it up for the cameras? If the latter, do they deserve Emmys for their stellar acting work? Vote above and comment below!
