Maksim “Maks” Chmerkovskiy (34) and Meryl Davis took home the Mirror Ball Trophy after fourteen seasons on DWTS.

For a while, many thought Maks would never see this day due to his in-your-face bravado.

He has made it to the finals four times with two runner-up and two third-place finishes.

Derek Hough and Peta Murgatroyd’s were runner-up.

Congratulations Maksim, well deserved!
