I'm a fan of Maks, but I certainly don't feel sorry for him. This show has made him famous and he has been well compensated. I don't think he feels sorry for himself either, but he feels bad for his partner. It must be hard to motivate someone, have them perform at their best when it is all for nothing. But that is up to the celeb to overcome. If all the Pros took such an attitude because Cheryl, Kym, Mark and Derek have won multiple times, so what is the point? Maks, Tony, Louis, Anna etc would have left after Derek's 3rd win. But they don't because they are competitive, and they still have the desire to try to win that ugly mirrorball trophy.
