Val Chmerkovskiy, Janel Parrish Dating Rumors Heat Up Ahead Of ‘DWTS’ Quickstep

Val Chmerkovskiy and Janel Parrish aren’t doing much to cool those dating rumors. In fact, the Dancing with the Stars partners have sort of just gone along with the gossip, perhaps because it is getting them votes. According to Entertainment Tonight, fans of the show have been given the chance to vote on what “adventure” they would like to see the remaining stars on the show partake in. For Val and Janel, fans want to see them kiss, which is really no surprise.

On Monday night, the rumored couple will dance a quickstep that will hopefully impress the judges — and end in a smooch (between Val and Janel, of course). They will also do a second dance with Keo Motsepe.

Val Chmerkovskiy and Janel Parrish certainly seem like they are a couple, but that could just be the nature of the show. Every season there are rumors that someone is hooking up with their partner (last season it was Val’s brother Maks, and his partner Meryl Davis), but it’s also true that some partners get closer than others do. There is undeniable chemistry between Val and Janel, but they have not admitted to dating just yet. Perhaps a kiss on Monday night will be their way of coming clean, so to speak.

According to Instagram, Val and Janel spend a lot of time together, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are dating. What’s more interesting is the romantic hugs they share, and the emoticon hearts that caption their photos. As you can see, the two aren’t doing too much to prove they aren’t in a relationship, and that’s fine with fans who are hopeful.

According to a source, Val Chmerkovskiy and Janel Parrish are hooking up, but nothing has been confirmed by the duo. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the two are said to be “casually dating,” but they aren’t really ready to share that with the world. What they are ready to share is their ability to captivate while on the ballroom floor, and they hope that’s enough to get people to vote for them.

Janel has had a great experience on Dancing with the Stars this season, and if she comes out of it with a Mirror Ball Trophy and a boyfriend? That would be pretty amazing. However, the Pretty Little Liars actress has already proven that she has what it takes to be a ballroom dancer, which is really the whole point of the show.

According to Just Jared Jr., Janel got a new tattoo after practice recently, and the quote that she got inked is very telling about her time learning how to ballroom dance with Val.

Do you think Val and Janel are more than just dance partners?
