Maks and Meryl? The chemistry between Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis has been palpable throughout the entire season 18 of Dancing With the Stars , leading fans of the ABC series to wonder if the partners are really dating behind-the-scenes. Dancing veteran Chmerkovskiy, 34, hot off his first-ever mirrorball victory, and Davis, 27, nearly smooched after learning of their win on live TV during the Tuesday, May 20, finale — but neither would confirm to Us Weekly what exactly was happening romantically. Laughing, Davis remained coy about whether she and Maks were dating or not. You go through the daily grind and it's very challenging. You get to know people in really fun moments and in really challenging moments, and I think that's what makes the show so successful.
