The competition is getting brutal further into the season of Dancing With The Stars, which means the drama between judges and contestants is unfolding. With more on the line once the competition gets tighter, every dance and every little critique counts from the judges in order to get the votes from viewers to move on to the next round.
But things got a little heated on Monday night’s episode, with dancing pro Maks Chmerkovskiy giving judge Len Goodman a piece of his mind when he called soccer star Hope Solo‘s rumba “the worst dance of the whole season.” Sheesh, it couldn’t have been that bad, could it?
Watch the war of the words go down between Maks and Len as Maks defended his partner Hope when Len called their dance the “worst” of the season.
Maks retaliated by challenging Len, saying “Maybe it’s time to go!” and later had this to say in the Skybox with Brooke Chavet:
With all due respect, this is my show. I helped make it what it is. I love every aspect of it. I love every professional that has ever been here, and I love every celebrity that puts effort into it every week. Having said that, I’m a little tired that we are being judged, some on effort and some, being picked on (for) our heel leads.
