The pro dancer publicly announced he was done with the show after having danced with Amber Rose last season. “I’m going to have a newborn baby. I have zero want to do this. I promise you that,” he said. “It’s been it for me two years ago. I never thought I’d be back here in this position. I’m glad I am. I promise, I’m so glad that I made this decision.”

Maks pulled the same stunt a couple years prior claiming it was "time" to bid farewell with the show, but he still ended up returning.
