Entertainment: Jenna Johnson Speaks to Husband Val Chmerkovskiy’s Potential ‘DWTS’ Exit

DWTS' Horror Night Brings Out Surprising Emotions and 2 Perfect Scores

  DWTS' Horror Night Brings Out Surprising Emotions and 2 Perfect Scores Anything goes during horror week — especially when it comes to Dancing With the Stars. During the Monday, October 25, episode, the cast took on different dance routines inspired by horror movies and TV shows. JoJo Siwa and Jenna Johnson earned another perfect score for their creepy jazz routine inspired by It. During rehearsals, JoJo dressed up as her pro partner but for the big night, she transformed into Pennywise — something that she was definitely not used to. “I don’t like to be mean, I don’t like to be scary,” the Nickelodeon star said after the dance. “However, on a night like tonight, I get to be terrifying. Oddly enough, I feel so much like myself right now!” Cody Rigsby and Cheryl Burke took on a cha cha inspired by American Psycho, dancing to Kim Petras’ “There Will Be Blood.” Ahead of their dance, Cody admitted that he really wanted to go hard this week since his scores have been so low — and that’s exactly what they did. After nailing the routine, Carrie Ann Inaba said that the duo finally had the “connection” she’s been wanting. “I’ve been waiting for you to get out here and really show us your potential and tonight, you have done it,” Len Goodman added. Derek Hough noted that it was definitely the Peleton star’s “best dance” so far, and he could tell he “did the work” ahead of time.

“I think that he is the best male dancer on the show, and I can say that very confidently and proudly,” the 27-year-old So You Think You Can Dance alum told Entertainment Tonight about her husband’s potential departure from the ABC show. “I think that there is a lot more that we haven’t seen from him that I would love to see.”

“I think it will be fun to see him try out new things that he wants to do. He’s the most artistic person,” she continued. “I’d love to see him act, direct, pursue music, but yeah, we’ll see. I really hope it’s not because he’s so good at dancing.”

Regardless of Chmerkovskiy’s plans, Johnson wants to return to the ballroom.

“I will for sure be back here. It will be different [without him], but I think it would be also awesome,” she said. “I love being able to do different projects from each other that we can support and help each other thrive on. So I know he would be really invested in my season, just like he is now. But I’m not done dancing with my hubby on that floor yet. Not done yet.”

Johnson and JoJo Siwa will compete in the season 30 finals on Monday, November 22, while Chmerkovskiy and Olivia Jade Giannulli were eliminated earlier this month. Following their exit, the Ukrainian pro hinted that the YouTuber may have been his last celebrity partner.

“I’ve always been very clear about coming back on the show. I love the show. I love being on it. I am so grateful for the opportunity. Is this my last season? Probably,” he told ET on November 8. “I have no regrets about my tenure on the show. I have no regrets about the season. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner to end it with.”

One week later, the pro opened up about what could be next for him.

“I’m going to promote dance and whether it’s at Dance With Me or a local dance studio, go and dance. That’s why I’m passionate about the show, whether the show moves on with me or without me, which I’m not saying it’s going to move on without me,” Chmerkovskiy said during an appearance on “The Bellas Podcast” on November 17. “I’m saying I love the show, genuinely, but I want to see it [continue] for a long time. It’s good for dance, it’s good for my passion, it’s good for my business. It’s good for life!”

Chmerkovskiy has won DWTS twice over the years, taking home the trophy with Rumer Willis in season 20 and with Laurie Hernandez in season 23. Johnson, whom he married in 2019, came in second with Nev Schulman on season 29 and won the athletes edition of DWTS with Adam Rippon in 2018.
