Val’s Last Season of Dancing with the Stars

Val is coming off the heels of Dancing with the Stars season 30 with his partner, Olivia Jade. The pro dancer was paired with Olivia Jade, the YouTube influencer. Just last week they were voted off the show, right before the semi-finals. Even though they got the boot, Olivia and Val were quickly the fan favorite couple.

Just in case you missed it, here is a video of them dancing the Argentine Tango to “Any Time Any Place” by Janet Jackson.

Val also announced that season 30 would most likely be his last season of DWTS. However, his wife Jenna Johnson is also a pro dancer and currently competing on the show with her partner, JoJo Siwa.
