Meryl Davis on Her DWTS Win and Leaving Maksim Chmerkovskiy's Proposal Hanging: "I'm Stubborn!"

First she took home the Olympic gold, now the Dancing With the Stars mirror ball. Man, Meryl Davis' mantle is getting crowded.

"I'm kind of not really sure what's going on right now, much as I was at the Olympics...I just feel so lucky," Davis told E! News after winning Dancing With the Stars season 18 on Tuesday night.

Davis beat out fellow finalists Candace Cameron Bure and Amy Purdy to take home the top prize. Davis' Olympic partner Charlie White was eliminated earlier in the competition.

This was also the first win after 13 seasons for Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who returned to the ballroom this season after sitting out the last two cycles. The pro dancer said it just feels "amazing."

"[It's] everything I thought it would be," he told E! News. "This season's been amazing."

And everybody is dying to know: Does the chemistry extend off the dance floor as well? The two are tight-lipped, but Chmerkovskiy said he proposed to Davis five minutes after meeting her and he's still waiting for her answer. "I'm very stubborn," she said.

Dancing With the Stars season 18 contestant Cody Simpson said he was amazed by Davis and Chmerkovskiy's dances week after week. Since they've got behind-the-scenes access, we had to ask: What's up with the DWTS winners? "The chemistry is there," Simpson said.

And Simpson wasn't going to get away that easily after his naked Instagram post took the Internet by storm. "I just wanted to have fun and give my fans a little something funny on a Sunday afternoon," Simpson told us. "Instagram didn't like it, they took it down, but it was fun. I was free, I was on holidays, I did it, it was hilarious."
