Val Chmerkovskiy Wishes He & Zendaya Would've Won 'Dancing With The Stars' Together

Val Chmerkovskiy Wishes He & Zendaya Would've Won 'Dancing With The Stars' Together

Val Chmerkovskiy is like us all, wishing that he and Zendaya would’ve won Dancing With The Stars back in season 16.

Speaking with ET this week, the pro dancer and author opened up about that being his biggest heartbreak on the show.

“That was a huge heartbreak for me because she was 16,” he shared. “I wanted this to be such a huge moment for her. She worked so hard, and I really wanted her to lift that trophy and jump-start her career. And she didn’t lift the trophy and I felt heartbroken about that.”

Val adds that he wanted winning to be a move that would jump start her career, and even though they didn’t win, her career did go higher after that.

“I wish I could go back and have another chance at that season, because I feel like she was an incredible talent and I could’ve done better. I think I wasn’t as good as I am definitely now as a choreographer and as a teacher and dancer,” Val says.

“I would’ve loved to give her another shot at that, but outside of that, she turned out pretty fine,” he says.

Now we need to have another all-star season of the show, in which Val and Zendaya WILL be lifting up that mirrored ball trophy.

The 31-year-old dancer and new author opened up to ET about getting bit by the jealousy bug from time to time.

“It’s hard,” Val shared. “The type of person I am, I mean, I’m fairly jealous. I mean, look, I have all these emotions, you know.”

He adds, knowing that he’s “not perfect,, but I have to check myself and be fair and say, like, … how can I hold this against her if I’m in the same situation? And I would never want to compromise my artistry, you know, because I wouldn’t want to make my significant other feel uncomfortable.

Val also revealed that his rekindled relationship with Jenna this time around is very different from before.

“This is part of the new chapter in my life and, you know, it takes some sacrifice to have a healthy relationship. And, you know, you gotta be willing to make those sacrifices and I’m definitely willing to make certain sacrifices to make it work.”

If you haven’t seen, Val and Jenna just adopted a new puppy named Anastasia. See the pics below!
