There's no denying that Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Olympic gold medal ice dancer Meryl Davis have chemistry on the dance floor. All season long the Dancing With the Stars duo wowed the show's judges and viewers with one stellar performance after another.
As in-step as they are on the dance floor, it's their off-the-dance-floor connection that has folks wondering, "Are they or aren't they?" Or, in the case of DWTS judge Carrie Ann Inaba, who declared after the couple's emotional and soulful freestyle routine Monday night, "I think the two of you should get married."
That seems to be the general consensus among fans and colleagues, who experienced a gentler, kinder and more playful Chmerkovskiy this season. And humbler.

"She and Erin have exchanged phone calls and voicemail messages. Erin was very complimentary to Brooke. So, in the midst of a difficult situation, there's a whole lot of maturity going on."

With 12 celebrity contestants and their professional partners still remaining on the 15th season of Dancing with the Stars All-Stars, Monday night made jive come alive – with decidedly mixed results.
