  • Val shares a record originally set by Mark Ballas of having the most celebrity partners (3) to never individually score less than 8 from any judge. He is also the only professional to go three consecutive seasons without ever scoring less that an eight (16, 17, 18) with ZendayaElizabeth Berkley Lauren & Danica McKellar.
