Val Chmerkovskiy flew back to New York this week after the shows. One of the first things on his agenda on Wednesday was to promote Dr. Scholl’s insoles. ESPN reports that he also talked about Dancing With The Stars and who is the front winner on the show this season. Below are some of his thoughts.

“The one thing I thought was the William Levy craze would die down,” Chmerkovskiy said, “but it never did!”

He wasn’t arrogant or cocky. And he has an incredible partner. He is the total package.”
Speaking of, this is a fun interview too. Val and Maks Chmerkovskiy joined After Buzz TV Monday night to talk about Week 8’s dances.
