Val Chmerkovskiy and Janel Parrish have been looking pretty cozy on Dancing with the Stars, but are they dating? Well that’s been speculated for a couple of weeks now, even though the Pretty Little Liars actress has a boyfriend. New details about the couple’s seemingly budding romance have been revealed, however, and said details probably won’t surprise you one bit. According to The Bustle, Val and Janel have been “faking it” — really putting on a front — to make people believe that they’re hooking up. Why? Well because publicity is great for votes, of course.
“To answer all of [your] questions about Val and Janel: they’re totally faking it,” reports the site. There is some key evidence supporting the opposite of a romance between Val and Janel. Janel’s boyfriend and his constant tweets in support of “Janelskiy” is at the very top of that list.
Val Chmerkovskiy and Janel Parrish might look like they really like each other — and they do — but as far as the two taking their professional relationship somewhere else, it’s not happening. So, what’s with the closeness of the couple? Their sweet shared kisses and their super flirty body language? That’s dancing… with a Chmerkovskiy brother apparently. The boys — Val and his older brother, Maks — are pretty flirty in general. That doesn’t mean that they are in love with every dance partner that they have.
Interestingly enough, with switch up week on the horizon (where the audience votes on who they want each star to dance with the following week), the Chmerkovskiy boys tend to get a bit, well, jealous. According to Just Jared Jr., Val denied that he’s the jealous type… but his tweets suggest differently.
“Vote for who you want my partner to be for the #switchupchallenge for #DWTS! I’ll miss you V. But only for one week and then I get you back,” Val tweeted. “Not a jealous man but I’m not happy about this????.. This gon be me the entire time (sic).”
Val Chmerkovskiy and Janel Parrish dating rumors aren’t going to stop with these kinds of messages, but those who know Val, know that he’s saying this all in good fun… for the most part. According to The Inquisitr, Val and Janel are quite close — they even say “I love you” already… but so many other DWTS couples say “I love you,” and hug and kiss… so, yes, this is totally a side effect of the show.
Even still, some people still wish Val and Janel would hook up, because they are so stinkin’ cute together!
