Instead of highlighting the drama and what kind of story twists that come with finding love in a few weeks only, the promo emphasizes on Maksim as a highly-desired man.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy is ready to find the love of his life. "The Bachelor" Ukranian version has dropped the first teaser featuring the "Dancing with the Stars" dancer as the man finding a shot at love through a reality show.
The ad, unlike the U.S. version, is more like a commercial of a product. There are women turning their heads to Maksim's direction when he enters the room. However, it's unclear whether any of the women in the video are the actual contestants.
Maksim, who broke up with fellow dancer Karina Smirnoff in 2009, rejected the idea to join the U.S. version but defended himself against the criticism. "There has never been a show such as this in Ukraine and it makes me think that a first season would be the most 'real' as far as participant's perception of 'what its all about' is concerned," he wrote on his site.
"I know it's hard to find someone you can connect to on a project like this, but nothing is impossible. For the sake of the show I can't reveal anything, but I must say I am very pleasantly surprised so far."
Maksim began filming the reality show in November last year and it lasted three to four weeks. It will debut March 17.
