Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Meryl Davis Back Together On ‘DWTS’: Are They Dating?

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis were all smiles on Monday night as they attended the Dancing With The Stars premiere together. The reigning champions looked super happy to be back together — and they even posed for some super cute photos throughout the show. According to Us Weekly, they were at the show as friends, even though fans loved seeing them together again. Clearly affectionate, Maks and Meryl didn’t hide their feelings for one another last night… romantic or not.

Of course Maks and Meryl were at the show to cheer on Maks’ brother Val Chmerkovskiy, who is dancing with Pretty Little Liars actress Janel Parrish. Maks captioned the Instagram photo above with, “Bang! @meryledavis and I think that y’all should vote…and vote for @iamvalc and @janelparrish! Call/text 1-800-868-3405 or ABC.com or FB @DancingABC.”

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis have seen each other a handful of time since winning Season 18. Each time they posted a photo together, fans went wild and dating rumors circulated. This time, of course, isn’t any different. However, Maks and Meryl still maintain that they are just friends.Maks and Meryl were joined by other Season 18 alum like Charlie White (Meryl’s ice skating partner) and Danica McKellar (she danced with Val last season). As far as Maks and Meryl doing an encore performance on the show, it didn’t happen last night… but some believe that it will happen this season. According to Glamour Magazine, it’s a definite possibility.

“I get the feeling that the producers would like Maks and Meryl to return to the dance floor for an encore at some point this season, but don’t expect that right away—there’s not enough time in the early weeks and the producers want to work on the new partnerships first.”

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis last saw each other in August for breakfast. It’s unknown how much time the two spent together, but it’s clear that they make time for each other whenever possible. According to The Inquisitr, dating chatter surrounding these two has died down quite a bit. Fans seem to realize that the two are just friends, and while they got extremely close on Dancing With The Stars, they have decided not to pursue a romantic relationship for one reason or another. Even still, it’s great to see them together — they look so happy together, don’t you agree? Do you think Maks and Meryl will ever date?
