Rumor has it, Maksim will return to the upcoming season 18 of 'Dancing with the Stars' as a dance pro, and the former 'Bachelor' contestant is the frontrunner to be the next Bachelorette.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy is going to be back on "Dancing with the Stars" dance floor, if toofab is to be trusted. According to the site, sources say that the Ukrainian dancer will be on the cast line-up for the upcoming 18th season of the dancing competition series.
Maksim, who was last paired with Kirstie Alley in season 15, reportedly had a meeting with executives for the show on Wednesday, February 26. It's unknown if he will do one or more seasons. The 34-year-old choreographer appeared as a guest judge in season 17.
Another ABC reality series, "The Bachelorette", is currently also prepping for the next season. The show is looking for the girl who will be the center of the attention in the upcoming season 10 as its mother show "The Bachelor" is nearing its season finale.
Andi Dorfman, who dumped Juan Pablo Galavis after the Hometown Dates, has now emerged as a frontrunner to be the next Bachelorette. Producers have reportedly talked to her about the gig, but nothing has been set in stone yet.
Host Chris Harrison recently commented on whether Andi would be a perfect candidate for "The Bachelorette". "We'll see how she performs at 'Women Tell All' and how people take to that, but I think she would be a fantastic Bachelorette," he said. "She embodies everything you look for in a Bachelorette: She's beautiful, but incredibly smart, strong, articulate. This is no pushover - she's a catch! I can only imagine her demanding as much from the guys."
The official cast line-up of "DWTS" season 18 will be revealed on "Good Morning America" Tuesday, March 4, while the next Bachelorette is expected to be announced during "The Bachelor: After the Rose" on March 10.
