Dancing With the Stars is running out of "legitimate celebrities," according to Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Maks announced on Tuesday's The View that he would not return to the show as a professional dancer after winning season 18 with Olympian partner Meryl Davis, but he's not ruling out a future role on the series. Then on Watch What Happens Live, Maks discussed his exit further when asked if he thinks the show has run its course.
"I saw that there were a lot of changes last season. I took a year off. I skipped two seasons and I came back. I personally fell in love with the show. It's not something I need to say now that I'm not even part of it, but it's definitely amazing entertainment...I do think it needs to stay on. I'm a big supporter of anything dance related. And I think it's brilliant," Maks said. "My problem is that we're running out of legitimate celebrities. That's the problem."
