Maksim Chmerkovskiy has set the record straight on what appeared to be his marriage proposal to an unidentified brunette on last week’s finale of The Bachelor: Ukraine.
In recently unearthed clip from the season ender, the brutally-honest Dancing With The Stars hoofer seemed to be proposing to a woman he met on the Eastern European version of the hit reality show. Maks can be seen on camera in the clip giving a beautiful brunette a ring. So, what gives? Is Maks getting hitched?
Not quite. According to the star, he’s back on the market after his relationship with the Bachelorette fizzled out earlier this year.
“It finished and I’ll leave it at that,” says the self-professed hopeless romantic, who was previously engaged to his DWTS co-star Karina Smirnoff. “It was the hardest half a year of my life [filming that show], because the show was three months and then three months I had to be kind of silent about it. But everybody knows everything now, and if they don’t, they’ll find out in the next couple of days somehow.”
