Val Chmerkovskiy -- 7 things to know about the 'Dancing with the Stars' pro partner

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 11/13/2017 

Val Chmerkovskiy appears to be having one of the most challenging but rewarding Dancing with the Stars seasons yet.

Born Valentin Aleksandrovich, the 30-year-old professional dancer and choreographer joined Dancing with the Stars as a pro partner back in Season 13.

The 6'0" little brother of fellow DWTS pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy is a fan-favorite on the show, and he has won a mirrorball trophy twice during his long run -- once with Season 20's Rumer Willis and the second with Season 23's Laurie Hernandez.

For Season 25, Val is partnered with ESPN personality and former Paralympic swimmer, Victoria Arlen, and the pair have incredible chemistry.

Victoria shocks fans each week because she executes difficult dance moves while having no feeling in her legs, but Val's emotional and physical support for his celebrity partner certainly doesn't go unnoticed.

Val and Victoria have what it takes to make it all the way to the end, so we'll see how they perform in the upcoming semifinals.

Below is a list of 7 facts Reality TV World has compiled about Val Chmerkovskiy:
