Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis are trying to pretend as though they’re not dating, even though their actions say otherwise. Rumors of a romance between the two started circulating while they were filming Dancing with the Stars, and neither Maksim nor Meryl have done anything to dampen the allegations. If anything, they’ve played up the romance angle in every interview, every dance, and every public appearance, and that’s probably what guaranteed them the fan votes and the final push for the win.
Even after their win, both Maksim and Meryl played coy about their dating status, even though they’ve been asked about it during many interviews. Both of them are still clearly in touch, especially as Maksim recently posted a picture of their reunion on Instagram, captioning the photo with, “All is right in the world again! Got my long awaited hug!”
Plus, sources have already told US Weekly that Maksim and Meryl were spotted right after their win being very ‘touchy-feely‘. A source told US at the time, “Before dinner they were in a corner talking really close. He kept kissing her on the forehead and was doting on her.”
Then again, Maksim is rumored to be that affectionate with all of his female friends, so does that mean anything? It’s possible that Meryl and Maksim just want to keep their relationship private, which would definitely make them different from the previous famewhoring couples to come out of Dancing with the Stars. Or perhaps they’re capitalizing on their DWTS win and have something bigger planned for us — a reality show perhaps?
What do you guys think? Are Maksim and Meryl dating, or are they just playing the fans? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
