Sexy 'Dancing With the Stars' pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy has steamed up the dance floor with beauties including Brandy Norwood, Erin Andrews and Mel B. But now he's taking his moves to his homeland of Ukraine to win the heart of one lucky lady in that nation's version of 'The Bachelor.'

Although Chmerkovskiy had previously declared he'd never go on a dating reality TV show, he defended his choice on his website. "This is the first thing in a VERY LONG TIME that I'm doing for ME. For the first time, I don't really care what people think. First time that I'm not being 'judged', 'placed' or 'criticized.'"

In the same post on his website, Chmerkovskiy wrote that he turned down ABC's American 'Bachelor.' has since debunked that claim, as a 'Bachelor' source insists the 30-year-old dancer was never offered a season of the U.S. franchise.

Chmerkovskiy arrived in Ukraine Nov. 26, almost immediately after the latest 'Dancing With the Stars' season ended. He reportedly filmed for four to six weeks. Many wondered if a photo he posted on Twitter of a snowy chalet was a location for the show. Erin Andrews, his 'DWTS' season 10 partner, told Access Hollywood she had "no idea" if he found love during his overseas adventure.
