& CHERYL BURKE - The stars grace the ballroom floor for the first time on live national television with their professional partners during the two-hour season premiere of 'Dancing with the Stars,' which airs MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 15 (- p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
It was recently revealed that Val and his dancing partner Janel Parrish of Pretty Little Liars have schemed up quite the showmance this season all in the hopes of scoring more viewers’ votes.
But, apparently when Val isn’t shamelessly flirting with Parrish, he is spending his time on DWTS making another male competitor’s life a living hell.
Ironically, the one partner she didn't have to look up was her least favorite partner ever, Ziering.
#Nice Guy," TV host Jaymes Vaughan, who worked with Ziering during his Chippendales run in Las Vegas, tweeted.

leave the 'Good Morning America' taping at the ABC Times Square Studios on September 4, 2014 in New York City. I would just be like, 'Hey guys, I'm injured this season.
According to the rep, Maksim “was merely whispering in a fan’s ear in a loud nightclub.” Albeit a fan who happened to be wearing the same exact dress as Cheryl with the same exact hair style. This would be equivalent to Brad Womack getting photographed making out with a random woman the same week his final pick episode was scheduled to air on ABC. As for Maksim and Cheryl, the two have been romantically linked in the past as they reportedly briefly dated a few years back.
The two deny there is any romance going on today so perhaps it was just an alcohol fueled make-out session.
Cheryl Burke isn't afraid to dish now that she's stepped away from the ballroom.
The former Dancing With the Stars pro revealed during the Allegedly with Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss podcast that she and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have hooked up in the past. All of us dancers, we've known each other — back to Maks, we've known each other since I was 12 and he was like maybe 15. People interrupt or, you know, something happens." Burke never actually dated the hunky stars, though.
The two-hour season premiere of 'Dancing with the Stars,' airs MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 15 (- p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. On Monday, he thanked a former colleague on Twitter who stood up for him."For what it's worth I've worked with @Ian Ziering on stage and on TV and loved the dude every time.
