Their chemistry on the dance floor is undeniable – and led to rumors that they are an item – but there's something even more special that bonds Dancing with the Stars frontrunners Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
They bring out the best in each other.
"I feel that I can really be myself with Maks," the Olympic ice skater, 27, tells PEOPLE. "He pushes me to stand up for myself, whether it's in real life or on the dance floor. It's cool."

Amy Purdy and Derek Hough were declared safe right away and kicked off the night with a 36-out-of-40-point rumba to a slowed-down rendition of "Light My Fire" by the Doors.
"You lit my fire! ... First out, first class," head judge Len Goodman told the pair, while Martin gushed, "You were stunning. You made me feel a lot of things."
But the night wasn't entirely a win for Purdy, who was sent to the hospital shortly after her performance with a shoulder injury. She was unable to perform the group dance with her team at the end of the evening, and the dress rehearsal dance was used to judge the routine (more on that later).

There's been no lack of excitement during season 18 of Dancing with the Stars.
Following an unexpected double elimination last week, this week's show – which featured Robin Roberts as a guest judge – had one couple backing out of the competition due to injury, and the rest of the couples digging into their most personal moments and sharing them with a teary-eyed audience during a most memorable year-themed episode.

Monday night's Dancing with the Stars kicked off with a selection of surprises.
Not only did contestants learn right at the beginning that there was a double elimination to take place during the show, but the leader board's lowest scorer Billy Dee Williams – whose face expressed fear of being sent home – was saved almost immediately, and went on to dance a 15-point tango with Emma Slater that judge Len Goodman said "didn't have enough attack."
Before getting to the unfortunate two who were forced to bid adieu, here's a recap of how the night went overall:

Peta Murgatroyd is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 14 – only her second season on the series – with Donald Driver. The Australia native will blog for PEOPLE about competing with Big Time Rush band member James Maslow during the show's 18th season.
There have been so many changes on the show this season, but I'm happy with them.
I think Erin [Andrews] did an amazing job at the premiere. I think she adds like this girl-next-door vibe to the show. I think Dancing with the Stars wanted to create a new audience this season and really liven it up a little more. I think she's helping to do that. Her interviews are great and she's really down to earth. She's really conversational.

Former contestant Erin Andrews is adjusting quickly to her new duties as Dancing with the Stars co-host.
Going off of a rave review from PEOPLE's TV critic – who says the sports broadcaster is right at home on ABC's hit competition show – Andrews, too, told PEOPLE, "It's crazy because it feels kind of like family and I'm back, you know, to where I kind of grew up."
But even so, Brooke Burke-Charvet's replacement is still getting the hang of things.
