Caitlyn Jenner might want to seriously consider becoming the next Keeping Up With the Kardashians star to compete on Dancing with the Stars — last season’s pro winner thinks that she’d make a great partner.
During a recent interview with InTouch Weekly, Val Chmerkovskiy talked about the possibility of dancing with Caitlyn Jenner during the next season of Dancing with the Stars. Val thinks that partnering up with Cait would be great, and it sounds like the slightly cocky pro dancer is already thinking about winning his next mirrorball trophy.
“I’ll be Cait’s partner for sure,” Val said. “I’ve proven I can win the show, and I would love to have an opportunity to win it with somebody that no one else believes can do it.”
Val Chmerkovskiy had it easy last season — Rumer Willis was young, fit, and a fast learner. However, Val said that he only looks for one thing in a celebrity partner.
“As long as you have the right energy, I am in it to win it.”
Unfortunately, there’s no word on whether 65-year-old Caitlyn Jenner would be interested in dancing with Val. However, she definitely shouldn’t be camera shy after starring on Keeping Up With the Kardashians for all these years. If Cait does decide to compete on Dancing with the Stars, perhaps she’ll get a few helpful tips from Kim Kardashian and Rob Kardashian — her former stepchildren have both appeared on the show. Caitlyn would be the second transgender DWTS competitor to tango on the show, and she’d be the show’s first female transgender contestant. Chaz Bono, the son of Sonny and Cher, finished in seventh place during Season 13.
Caitlyn Jenner definitely has her fair share of fans, so she might go far on Dancing with the Stars. As the Inquisitr previously reported, Caitlyn broke a Twitter record by reaching one million followers faster than any other social media celebrity. And according to AOL, Twitter recently showed Caitlyn a little more love by starting a campaign to get her face on the ten dollar bill. The United States Treasury Department is going to replace Alexander Hamilton’s face with that of a significant female figure, and Caitlyn has proved to be one of the most popular candidates on social media. However, she doesn’t meet the Treasury Department’s criteria — the $10 woman has to be deceased.

Fans of Caitlyn Jenner might not get to see her face on their money in the near future, but they’ll be able to get their Cait fix when her new docu-series airs on the E! Network. Kendall Jenner recently talked to E! News about how she feels about her father starring in I Am Cait, which premieres on July 26.
“I think that he can honestly do so much good with everything and I’m excited for it. If he’s excited, I’m excited for him,” Kendall said.
Do you think Caitlyn Jenner should compete on Dancing with the Stars, and would you like to see her coupled up with Val Chmerkovskiy?
