Transcript for 'DWTS' pro Maks Chmerkovskiy on competing with wife Peta Murgatroyd on season 25
revealed gearing up for a really exciting season 25. Hard to believe and we are -- We've seen all the pros but now we have two of them. Maks is here, Maks chmerkovskiy and the new pro Alan joining us from messenger. So, Alan, you're smiling and relaxed. You've filled in before how how does it feel to be an official pro. It feels amazing to finally get my shot. So exceeded. The satellite is a little lag. I got this. You know, last season I got a fill-in with Heather for Maks so it's nice to have Maks by my side. Helped me walk through my first interview. Maks is not walking through anything. I gave him advice already. I was like, look, just, you know, do not listen to your inner voice. Try to not first say and then think maybe it's the right thing to do and just follow through with that. Just maybe cut yourself short and be like, maybe I said something wrong. Everyone else not to take Maks' advice. Sounds like Maks should take Maks' advice. No, I got to say I'm really proud of Alan. It's been, you know, for you, I don't know, technically but a longer journey than most of us the jump from the troupe on to the show. I'm very proud of him and has done a phenomenal job last season standing in with me for Heather and Heather was not an easy partner to jump in with so I was very proud of him. This is a very well deserved job. Thank you, Maks. Are you ready to compete against PETA? That's for you? Who, me? Nobody is competing against anybody. Don't instigate, George. Let's focus on Alan. Let's focus on Alan. I have a lot of stuff to deal with, so, please, would you just chill and this is going to be a beautiful show and everybody is going to be friends. It sounds like there may have been some conversations about how this is all going to work. No. No, trust me. No. Not have a conversation here about it. We're excited. We are. We are -- yeah, we had an incredible summer since last season ended we got back into sort of like, you know enjoying chai's moments and every day there's something fascinating that makes you not want to leave the house and how much "Dancing with the stars" last season helped both of us, you know, PETA, you know, physically and myself as well and us as a sort of family to kind of, you know, it really helped us out and I think coming back this season we're coming back with the same sort of approach. We just want to have fun. We just want to be a sort of family doing stuff together, you know, shai now recognizes certain things and dances to some commercials that just stop him in his tracks and he just starts to wiggle so I want him to do this when he watches mommy and daddy on TV. It's not surprising. It's in his DNA. Listen, we're so psyched. Can't wait to see you on the floor and we welcome you both back to the show.
