'Dancing With the Stars': Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy strip down for a revealing interview -- VIDEO

There are many mysteries in this world, from Big Foot to the Bermuda Triangle. But there’s one mystery that’s about to get solved: Which Chmerkovskiy brother needs a bigger hat?

Let me explain. During a photo shoot for People in which Dancing With the Stars‘ Val and Maks Chmerkovskiy wore nothing but Pharrell-inspired hats on their crotches, the brothers also sat down for an interview. “Covering up” with nothing more than a towel/blanket — can you say luckiest interviewer ever? — the Ukrainian sex symbols played a game of “Him or Me.” The questions included things like who works out more, who had more girlfriends growing up, and, of course, who needs the bigger hat. Get it?

Another important note from the video? Maks’ life motto: “When in doubt, take off your shirt.” I’m telling you, guys, this is pure gold.

Watch the nearly naked brothers dance around and chat below: READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars': How was Erin Andrews' first season?

Heading into this season of Dancing With the Stars, Erin Andrews was known for being a former contestant and the woman on the sidelines at sporting events. But could she ditch the locker room talk for discussions of hip thrusts — and keep up with Tom Bergeron’s witty one-liners? To keep things short and sweet, I think the answer turned out to be yes.

I wasn’t quite on Team Erin when the season started. In fact, I think I was actively trying not to be. I found some of her jokes annoying; I thought she was awkward at times. But week after week, she wore me down. I started to appreciate the way she’d ask the questions everyone wanted answered. And as time went on, Erin got more comfortable and started firing back at anyone who threw a line her way. She got sarcastic — and suddenly, I approved. READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars': The season 18 winner is...

It all comes down to this.

After last night’s performances, Meryl Davis, Candace Cameron Bure, and Amy Purdy are waiting to find out which one of them will become Dancing With the Stars‘ season 18 champion, and more importantly, the proud owner of a MirrorBall Trophy all their own.

But before we find out who’s won, we’ve got a little season recapping to do, followed by a few performances, and a lot more dancing. For now, the pressure is off, so kick off your shoes, sit back, and pray that Maks and Meryl kiss before the night’s over!

You all know the drill: Talk about the show here while it’s on, and I’ll update this post with the results later tonight. Then afterward, head on over for my full recap.

Update: After dominating the season, Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have been crowned the season 18 champions! Read my full recap here.

'Dancing With the Stars': Maks and Meryl deliver the best almost-kiss of 2014

Hollywood is in the business of chemistry. It’s all about casting the right actors, making sure the relationship feels believable, and then crossing your fingers that what you think you see translates to the screen. And then there are reality competitions, where chemistry rarely matters unless your name is Adam Levine or Blake Shelton.

Take Dancing With the Stars, for example. Viewers tune in to watch celebs potentially embarrass themselves on the dance floor with a professional partner they’re probably decent friends with, but we don’t expect much more than that. And then, once in a while, like a unicorn sighting, something magical happens and reality TV makes casting agents’ jobs look easy. Enter Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars': Week 10 is liiiiiiive!

It’s time for one final Monday Funday on the dance floor.

The final four couples are all set to compete one last time to win the coveted Mirrorball Trophy in tonight’s Dancing With the Stars. Each couple will perform two dances: The judges’ pick, which will be the same style they danced during the Switch-Up, and then a freestyle, which ABC promises will come complete with “special effects and lots of surprises.” Here’s hoping the animated Disney characters make their return to the floor!

But animated fun aside, at the end of the night, one couple will be eliminated before the winner is revealed on Tuesday night.

You all know the drill: Talk about the show here while it’s on, and I’ll update this post with the results later tonight. Then afterward, head on over for my full recap.

Update: James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd left in the show’s final (shocking) elimination before a champion is crowned. Read my full recap here!

'Dancing With the Stars': Week 9 is liiiiiiiive!

Who’s feeling iconic?

Let’s hope the remaining five couples are, because tonight’s Dancing With the Stars semi-finals competition is American Icons Night. With director/choreographer Kenny Ortega sitting on the judges’ panel, each couple will hit the floor twice, both times dancing to iconic American songs.

One couple will face elimination, and the other four will be off to next week’s finals.

Update: Charlie White and Sharna Burgess were eliminated from the competition. Check out my full recap here!

'Dancing With the Stars': Week 8 is liiiiiiiive!

Tonight’s unofficial theme is harsh criticism, so strap on your big boy pants — not what Ricky Martin was wearing last week — and get ready to hit the dance floor!

With Dance Mom‘s Abby Lee Miller as a guest judge, I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a few tears tonight. And to make things more difficult, the show is kicking off its first ever Celebrity Dance Duels. Here’s how it works: Everyone will start the dance together, but halfway through the dance, the pros will exit the floor to force the celebs to compete side-by-side. So basically, I’m hoping this is like the ending battle scene of every great dance movie. Spoiler: It won’t be.

You all know the drill: Talk about the show here while it’s on, and I’ll update this post with the results later tonight. Then afterward, head on over for my full recap.

Update: Danica McKellar and Valentin Chmerkovskiy were eliminated from the competition. Check out my full recap here

'Dancing With the Stars': Week 7 is liiiiiiive!

Finally, it’s time to live the vida loca, everybody!

In case you didn’t get that reference, Ricky Martin is joining the Dancing With the Stars judges panel for Latin Night! Tonight, each of the final seven couples will be heating up the floor with a Latin-themed partner number, in addition to the fan-favorite Team Dances.

You all know the drill: Talk about the show here while it’s on, and I’ll update this post with the results later tonight. Then afterward, head on over for my full recap.

'Dancing With the Stars': Week 6 is liiiiiiive!

Who’s ready for a party?!

On tonight’s Dancing With the Stars, the final eight couples are taking to the floor to dance to some of the best party anthems out there. And obviously, the perfect guest judge for Party Anthems night is LMFAO’s Redfoo (and his amazing hair). Party rock is in the house tonight, guys! Try and have a good time, won’t you?

You all know the drill: Talk about the show here while it’s on, and I’ll update this post with the results later tonight. Then afterward, head on over for my full recap.

'Dancing With the Stars': Week 5 is liiiiiive!

The good news: Everyone is back with their rightful partner this week! The even better news: It’s Disney night!

The nine remaining couples are jiving and gyrating to some of your favorite Disney tunes tonight, from the classic songs of The Lion King to the more recent Disney hit Frozen. And with season 9 winner Donny Osmond as the night’s guest judge, things are sure to be more than a little interesting.

You all know the drill: Talk about the show here while it’s on, and I’ll update this post with the results later tonight. Then afterward, head on over for my full recap.
