'DWTS': Maksim leaving?
The dancer says he'll only dance for three more seasons.
They say men age like fine wine — and boy, are they right!

Dancing With the StarsMaksim Chmerkovskiy is celebrating his 33rd birthday on Thursday, and he’s looking better than ever.

But fans of the hit TV show had better get their fill of Chmerkovskiy while they can.

The hoofer revealed to Celebuzz that he would not be seeking to renew his contract after his 16th season with the show. And at Entertainment Weekly’s pre-Emmy party back in September, Chmerkovskiy revealed, “I think all of us are looking forward to moving on after out contracts are done.”

At the end of his multi-year run, Chmerkovskiy can sum up his DWTS experience in just three short words: “I enjoyed everything.”

Now, to celebrate the dancer’s birthday, we’ve compiled all of his sexiest looks — and yes, many of them are shirtless. Click through our gallery — then tell us which photo is your favorite!
