Valentin Chmerkovskiy is a 10. Speaking of which, he also scored the first 10's of the season with partner Zendaya on Dancing With The Stars this week. But, this sexy boy isn't just about ballroom. He has a lot of surprises under the hood. Besides being a charming piece of beef with rhythm, Val has some interesting things under his belt. Let's see what makes Val score both on and off the show.
1. Valentin Chmerkovskiy Is.... A Rapper?
Yes, it's true. I never really pictured Val as a rapper, but with songs including White Boy Boogie and Straight Outta Jersey it certainly seems he's aspiring to be... Check out the White Boy Boogie Video here or visit his music site: http://www.iamval.com/
We half expected to hear Val's accent sneaking through, but he surprisingly disguised it quite well. Do you think we'll be hearing Mr. Valentin in concert any time soon? If he shakes his sexy little DWTS tush while he's at it, I'd definitely pay to see that show.
2. He's a Cartoon Junkie.
Well, I don't know about junkie, but you do the math. See Val pictured above at the World Premiere of Disney’s The Muppets.
3. Val Is A Blogger.
Via The Clicker, Val will be blogging about his DWTS throughout this season. His most recent post was about how excited he was to be dancig with his brother Maks on the show.
"On a personal level, it’s huge ... I’m very grateful for the opportunity to perform side-by-side with my brother, just simply for all our fans and my family, particularly. I had a conversation with my grandma Thursday and she was just ecstatic that she’s gonna get to see Maks and I dance together."
4. He Goes To Fashion Shows.
5. Val Likes Showing Off His Gun Collection.
Well, he really only has two guns, so I don't know if you'd really call it a collection... But he definitely likes to show them off.

7. Val Is A Daddy!
Some of the ladies might want to call him Daddy themselves, but there's only one little boy who considers Val his daddy and that is Sir Sleep. It even looks like Sir Sleep makes an appearance in Val's White Boy Boogie video.
8. Val Gets Compared To Ryan Seacrest.
By Zendaya anyway... For bein' super shorties.
9. This Boy Is On A Champagne Diet.
Another one of Val's songs is titled Champagne Diet, baby. Maybe that's how he keeps so trim... a liquid diet.
10. This Rapper Slash Ballroom Dancer Is Also A Slash Violinist.
What a combination... It makes you wonder what other miscellaneous talents this guy has up his Ukranian sleeves.
