The Dancing with the Stars professional claimed that his outlandish behaviour has contributed to his popularity and helped him make a name for himself on the ABC competition, reports People.
"There were some things that I'm not extremely proud of, but I think that the imperfections and not-so-good moments are exactly what made me who I am," Chmerkovskiy explained.
"There were some ups and downs, but every season had something interesting in it, whether it was the dynamic of a partnership or me speaking back to the judges."
Chmerkovskiy went on to say that despite causing the occasional controversy, he has no plans to leave Dancing with the Stars in the near future.
"l love the show and I love what it stands for. I definitely want to keep doing it," he said.
Chmerkovskiy faced criticism last year after starting an on-air argument with judge Len Goodman and engaging in a heated feud with fellow dancer Derek Hough.
