"The Chmerkovskiy in me was kind of itching to say something," Val said of Goodman's score. "But I'm excited because now we have an opportunity to do it again and hopefully get a 10 this time. You know, if anything, he motivates us to work even harder."
Val, 31, also commented on his brother returning to DWTS after taking a few weeks to recover from an injury. Maksim, 37, just so happens to be coming back on the week when the men compete against the women. "I'm really excited. I mean we're gonna be on a team together," Val said of his older brother's return. "I love working and sharing the stage with him."
"I mean, he's gonna have to keep up," Val added. "Hopefully he's ready to do that."
