Transcript for 'DWTS': Maksim Chmerkovskiy Makes a Big Announcement on 'GMA'
Right now, sit time for the big reveal. Who is coming back to "Dancing with the stars"? Let's find out. There he is. Maks, all right. First, let's take a look at his dancing journey. He's "Dancing's" bad boy and big champ. Tia and her partner, maksim whi chmerkovskiy chmerkovskiy. Reporter: He made his debut. Mrk eryl and Maks. Reporter: He won in 2014 with Merrill Davis. It was not a great quick step. It was amazing. Reporter: Returned to the ballroom as a guest judge. Everyone taught our robin a thing or two about the cha-cha. It's a family fair on the floor. Little brother, Val, a dancing star on the show. Maks' fiance, a fellow champ. They expect their first child next year. Now Maks is back ready to try for the trophy one more time. Maks, welcome back. It's great to have you with us again this morning. Great to have you back on "Dancing with the stars." So you know, back in 2014, we thought you hung up the dancing shoes after 14 seasons. You said, you were done. You just couldn't stay away? I -- yeah. Looking at this montage that you put together seems like for the last 1 years everything that happened in my life had some sort of relationship to the show. And, you know, why keep stage away from stuff that constantly has you on? No, honestly, I -- I felt great. I felt this summer's been amazing. The Maks and Val tour was a huge success. And we thank you to all the fans and everybody for showing up to the theaters. We tried to put on the show every night. In the process, somehow, got the best shape of my life. I feel great. My knees are back. My ankles are great. And, you know, you feel like, you know, I just -- I just wanted this to continue the feeling the positivity. So much. So much love out there. I'll bet. Now there's a lot of love between you and your brother as well. You danced together all summer long. Now you'll be competing against him. Well, I mean, we have done that before for a bit of time. And then I left. And rightfully so I feel like, you know, he's become the star of the show. And, you know, that's not going to change. I'm coming in to do, you know, my thing. Whatever that thing would be. And, I'm just excited. I feel like I never had this sort of -- um -- you know, everything, everything the way it came together. And the way I ended up back on "Dancing with the stars," as a pro, this season is very different than any other season that I've done. And I'm looking forward to that new sort of way of being in the show. And I'm curious. You have been a judge for quite some time. Telling the pros what they're doing wrong. Now you're on the other side again. How much pressure are you putting on yourself? I mean, I -- I've -- done it. Then judged it. And came back and did it. And, you know, judgijudging, back and forth. There's no pressure. The basic principle of the show stays the same. And, you know, you just come in do your best, and help whoever your partner is to do their best. I -- I did, however, say before that, you know, I'm not a -- I'm not running after multiple mirrorballs. That's not what my focus is at. And, I feel absolutely no pressure having to win again. I do, however, know that I'm a very competitive person. So, it's going to come out. And I'm looking forward to that. But, again, depending on who my partner is, we're going to have a great time. We can't wait to see it. We won't see PETA this season because you're about to have a baby. Just about out of time. Any updates? She's doing amazing and getting bigger and the baby is kicking. And it's phenomenal. I can't describe the feeling. A little dancer in there. Can't wait to see you, Maks. We'll announce the full cast Tuesday on "Gma." And coming up right now, the
