Monday Morning Man: Valentin Chmerkovskiy!
Fans of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars are familiar with dancing pro Valentin Chmerkovskiy who is on his fifth quest for the mirror ball trophy this season.
Val, 27, is a 14-time US champion in dance and is paired paired with former Saved by the Bell star Elizabeth Berkley who, of course, danced in Showgirls.
The younger brother of former DWTS dancer Maksim, Val has been stepping into his own in recent seasons with his sarcastic humor shining through at times. He told Berkley, for example, that his favorite Saved by the Bell character was Kelly (Tiffani Theiseen) and not Jessie (played by Berkley).
Val and partner Zendaya came in second place last season.
