“I'm Valentin Chmerkovskiy and I've given my brother Maks 10 seasons to win this thing, but if you want something done you've got to get out there and do it yourself.”
“I love my experiences on the show, with no regrets—I love my job. I get to be on stage in front of millions, and showcase what all the hard work and sacrificing was for. I get to be on a show with my brother, best friend, and future uncle to my kids. Maks and I are making lifelong memories for our family one episode, one piece of choreography, one picture at a time.”
“Everyone holds certain talents and certain capabilities, and it’s my job to bring the best out of them.”
