Val Chmerkovskiy was the face of Dancing with the Stars for many years but all that might come to an end. After being eliminated Val looked back at season 30 and said he’s not sure if he’ll be coming back again for Season 31.

Chmerkovskiy has been a contestant on the show since 2006, though he did not get his first female partner as a professional dancer until 2011. He has won the show twice, and he does plan on continuing to dance.

As a guest on an episode of “Entertainment Tonight,” per ET Online. He appreciated his time on the show. He said he loves being on the show but he’s just not sure if he’ll be up for coming back again.

Val said that he has no regrets about his tenure on the show or any regrets about how he performed in the season. “I couldn’t have asked for a better partner to end it with.” He added. Val earlier opened up about his partner Olivia Jade on Instagram, after the pair got eliminated.

This one hurt a lot. I’m mostly sad that it’s over. I had the time of my life this season. You were the perfect partner, teammate, homie, I got a world of love for you, I believe in you and I am grateful I got a chance to meet you and get to know you. You’re a true gem Olivia Jade. But this is only the beginning. Let’s keep dancing. Thank you to all the fans that voted and supported us. It really means a lot.


Val will definitely be staying busy during his time away from the show. He and his brother, Maks Chmerkovskiy, currently run their Dance Fitness App Dance & Co, and they frequently tour around the country.

Chmerkovskiy has been contemplating retirement from “Dancing With the Stars” since earlier in the season. He DM’d a fan to tell them he wasn’t sure he’d be around next season. You will be missed Val.
