“I still don’t know if I’m on the show,” Maksim Chmerkovskiy tells ET Canada. In good humor he added, “maybe everybody’s going to be really short [this sseason].” At 6’2,” he says, “It’s not going to be a good pairing.”

Meanwhile, producers have made the call to Giuliana Rancic. “Yes, I’ve been approached for the new season,” she confirmed to E! News about her involvement.

“I’ve been a big fan of the show for years,” she said. “But sadly, my schedule at the moment would never allow for the grueling rehearsal commitment. Who knows, maybe Bill and I can be on the show together one day and go toe-to-toe for the trophy.”

As for Maks, don’t count him out just yet. “I’m happy to return every season,” he said. “Every off-season, something changes, something happens to make me realize how good I have it, and that’s the most important thing.  A little bit of competitiveness goes away and a little bit of appreciation takes over and I’m very appreciative of the show and what the show has done for me and for us. And, I shouldn’t be really upset about the little things and appreciate the big ones.”

Contestants for the new season will be announced on Good Morning America this coming Tuesday, February 28.
