Most of the time we forget about all the sexy professional dancers on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ because of all the B- and C-List celebrities soaking up all the spotlight. And yes, William Levy is pretty hot, but what about Derek Hough and Maksim Chmerkovskiy? They’ve got it going on as well. Take a look at some of the hunks you may have overlooked.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Maksim Chmerkovskiy on 'Dancing with the Stars'

Maksim Chmerkovskiy doesn’t have to do much to stand out from his partner Melissa Gilbert. Yeah, we love her for being our favorite character on ‘Little House and the Prairie,’ but come on! Chmerkovskiy has abs! Plus, he also has a charitable side. He’s one of the founders of Dance Team USA, the non-profit organization that seeks to promote recruit, support and train potential ballroom dancers.

Derek Hough

Maria Menounos seems all too comfortable with her dance partner this season. But who wouldn’t be when that dance partner is Derek Hough, one of the hottest dancers we’ve ever seen? Not to mention he has one of the best-looking bodies. This guy has a leg up on the competition already, being that he’s the only dancer on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ to win three seasons. Maybe it’s because America just can’t get enough of him.

Mark Ballas

Mark Ballas often falls out of the spotlight when put next to Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Derek Hough, but he has his own thing going on. When he donned a pair of board shorts — and only a pair of board shorts — for this pool party sponsored by Nivea and Esquire, everyone’s mouths dropped. Ballas is seriously packin’ a six pack. We knew dancing was a great form of exercise, but… woah!

Tristan MacManus

We’re so incredibly jealous of Gladys Knight, but we suppose that the legendary singer gets only the very best. And by best we mean that Irish hottie Tristan MacManus. This stud was born and bred in Dublin, something that women secretly see as a plus. What can we say? It’s the accent… and slowly budding chest hair.
