While Maksim Chmerkovskiy appeared to be in a lot of pain after dropping Kirstie Alley early into their rumba on Dancing With The Stars, he plowed through the routine…and says he won’t be giving up any time soon. “I’m good. It’s sore [but] it’s fine. It’s not a pain that will stop me,” he said on Good Morning America. “The person that got scared the most is Teddy. He’s one of the pro dancers in the troupe this season. He’s like, ‘Aw crap! I’m the stand in!…[But he's] not taking my spot that easy!”
Though Chmerkovskiy blamed the mishap on a muscle problem, Kirstie Alley tweeted she was to blame as well. “Maks is too humble,” she tweeted. “We all know it takes TWO to Tango..on our feet or on our asses…it takes TWO ..I will do better from now on.” With Kirstie a show favorite, it’s unlikely the fall will cost them the contest, and it sounds like they’ll have to drag Maksim from the floor either way.
