Hollywood's Hottest Shirtless Men
Usually it's the women who are objectified in Hollywood, but the men are fair game too! These guys are hard working actors, singers, and athletes who either take time to work out for their six-pack abs or just let nature take its course.

Professional dancers Val and Maskim Chmerkovskiy (pictured above) make sure they're in good shape for "Dancing With The Stars." The two brothers, who were born in the Ukraine, obviously work hard for their physiques.

Some male stars spend a lot of time bulking up at the gym, while others are slim and trim. Check out our gallery of seriously shirtless cele...

'Dancing With The Stars' Cast Revealed For 17th Season -- We Pick The Winner

September 4th, 2013 3:07pm EDT
Dancing with the Stars 17th season cast
Would you believe that this is the 17th season of Dancing with the Stars? This season, ABC will be only airing one episode of the show per week instead of the usual two, due ratings slipping through the years. However, producers have pulled together a rather interesting cast of characters this season. Let's break down who we think will win it all:

Bill Engvall dancing with pro Emma Slater

We won't see much of Bill nor newcomer Emma. This is the prime suspect for first off the show. Verdict: 12th place.

Jack Osbourne dancing with pro Cheryl Burke

I'm a big fan of Jack, but it's n...

Shirtless Maksim & Val Chmerkovskiy
Brothers Maksim and Val Chmerkovskiy hosted Oil of Olay's "Get Lathered Up" event at Liquid Pool in Las Vegas earlier this week, and they showed off their buff bods in matching black swimsuits.

Earlier this month, Maksim, 33, was spotted getting cozy with Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton. The "Dancing With The Stars" pro was once engaged to his co-star Karina Smirnoff and also dated fellow dancer Peta Murgatroyd. He was also once the star of the Ukrainian version of "The Bachelor."

Val, 27, has released a self-titled album. Tracks include "White Boy Boogie," "Eastern Europimpi...

Dancing with the Stars Finale
And then there were four... For the first time in the competition, "Dancing with the "Stars" has four couples in the finals.

Last week, teenage Disney sensation Zendaya Coleman and partner Val Chmerkovskiy slipped to 4th place but bounced back in spectacular fashion last night. Kelly Pickler shined brightly in her final dances and brought tears to one judge's eyes – while others defied expectations in the battle for the mirrorball trophy.

This week the couples must perform a total of four dances - three on performance night and a final dance during the grand finale.

The show began with a...

JACK WAGNER Eliminated on DWTS
Coming into last night’s results show was a bit difficult, since all of the stars performances were so amazing for week three. Even Len, who is usually overly critical, spoke about how unbelievable the performances were; and tried to convince the producers that no one should be sent home.

But, the tears and emotions from Monday’s heartfelt night had to be pushed aside, and the time came when someone in the group would have to say goodbye. The judges scores going into elimination were as follows in ranking order.

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Two Elimination Not A Surprise

March 28th, 2012 9:30am EDT
Martina Navratilova Eliminated on DWTS
After a killer kick off and week two’s struggles with the quickstep and jive, the stars gathered to find out who would be the first in the competition to go home. What a night! And I would say one of the most nerve-wracking. Especially since one of the contestants would be eliminated without having the opportunity to prove what they really could do on the dance floor.

However Sugarland helped ease the tension with their country tunes; and one by one contestants were told if they would be safe or placed in the bottom. The scores going into the elimination were the following in ranking orde...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week 2 Elimination: Elisabetta Canalis Dances Her Last Dance

September 28th, 2011 8:15am EDT
Dancing With The Stars
It was a mostly lackluster Monday night on "Dancing With The Stars," but that’s bound to happen when you throw a bunch of almost-celebrities together in a position totally out of their comfort zones. Some weeks it just works a lot like herding cats.

Well, that’s probably a little harsh, but the day I start taking this show too seriously, it’s time to stop watching. That time hasn’t come yet, obviously, so last night it was time to sit down and watch all the flashy filler, waiting for the only thing I wanted to hear, who was going home.

Here’s where the leader board stood as of Monday ni...
