Len Goodman has announced that season 18 of Dancing With the Stars could be his last, but his seat at the judges’ table won’t be empty for long!
Life & Style has exclusively learned that reigning champ Maksim Chmerkovskiy is itching to take his place.
“Maks really, really wants to be a judge,” a DWTS insider dishes to Life & Style. “He’s just waiting to see what Len decides before he makes his announcement.”
In light of this news, Maks’ recent confession to Life & Style about his future with the dancing competition series makes a lot more sense: “Len and I will get together and think about [whether I will return],” Maks recently told the mag. “When the season’s over, I’m depleted. I have nothing left.” Sounds like he’s ready to take a seat at the judges' table!
