Maksim Chmerkovskiy: I'm probably not returning to "DWTS"

Maks Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis win season 18 of "DWTS," May 20, 2014. ABC

ET caught up with "Dancing with the Stars" big winners Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy Tuesday night in Los Angeles, where dancing pro Maksim dished that he probably won't be returning to the hit ABC show.

"I don't think so," a clearly exhausted Maks told ET bluntly when asked if he would be returning next season. "This is exhausting. It has nothing to do with money. The first thing that I did after hugging her [Meryl] ... was come up to Derek [Hough] and I was like, 'Dude, I don't how you do it.' He did it five times. I have no idea."

Fellow dancing pro Derek has won the coveted "Dancing with the Stars" mirror ball trophy five times.

Tuesday night marked Maks' first win, after making it to the final rounds four separate times.
