Dancing With the Stars’ Val and Maks Chmerkovskiy Play Strip Trivia With Us — Watch the Hunky Video!

Buff brothers in, well, the buff! Dancing With the Stars’ hottest siblings Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy certainly know the ins and outs of the tango, the jive and the quickstep. But is their pop culture knowledge as impressive? 


During a recent visit to Us Weekly’s New York City office, Us Weekly Video put the hunks to the test and quizzed them on everything from One Direction to the American presidents.

The twist: Every time they answered incorrectly, 36-year-old Maks, who is engaged to fellow DWTS pro Peta Murgatroyd, and his single stud brother, 30, had to ditch a piece of clothing (Yay!).

“Thank God it’s wintertime,” Val joked to Us of his many layers. “You’re so mischievously excited right now.”

So, can they name all the KardashianJenner kids in order of their ages? Do they know just how many carats make up Mariah Carey’s engagement ring from James Packer? And, most importantly, do they know the difference between Liam Payne, Liam Hemsworth and Liam Neeson? 

Watch the pec-tacular video above to see the brothers, who begin their Maks & Val Live On Tour: Our Way tour June 15, take it (almost) all off! 

Tune in to the new season of DWTS on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.
