#TeamValaur continues to kill it on Dancing With the Stars!
and pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy
took the dance floor on Monday night and absolutely slayed their dance to the popular ‘90s theme song for the animated series, DuckTales
, a show the 16-year-old Olympic gymnast admitted she knew nothing about.

Chemerkovskiy said it was only fitting that Hernandez play a cartoon character because “her eyes are just so huge.”
“She has all these emotions squeezing out of her face – she can barely hold them in,” the 30-year-old dance pro added. Hernandez adorably explained, “My happiness goes to my cheeks so I have to grab it to make sure it doesn’t fall out.”
Chmerkovskiy, in the role of Scrooge McDuck, and Hernandez were total pros on the dance floor, which was completely transformed to the DuckTales universe, complete with money bags and gold coins. The pair clearly had fun with their routine, ending it like any DuckTales fan would, jumping into a pile of “Len Goodman” dollar bills.
Hernandez was praised for even upstaging Chmerkovskiy, who was visibly out of breath. “You see, what had happened was…,” the pro joked.
Before they left the stage, Chmerkovskiy made sure to show his partner some love. They scored an impressive 32 out of 40.
