Maksim Chmerkovskiy is more than just a (VERY) pretty face.

The Dancing With the Stars professional understands the job market and, as a result, told Us Weekly on Wednesday that he'll be remaining on the show for the foreseeable future.

"In this economy, to have a job like this?" said the dancer, who was voted off with Denise Richards a few weeks ago. "Believe me, It's not a bad job!"

So, Maks, who do you think will win this season?

"It's between Melissa Rycroft, Gilles Marini and Lil Kim. I would be happy to see any one of them win," he said.

He didn't last very long this season, but click on the following photos for larger images of Chmerkovskiy and Richards...
