Val Chmerkovskiy brought the heat to the Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars semi-finals Nov. 19!

The dance pro stripped down to his Speedos during a surfer-themed Flamenco routine with his celebrity partner, Kelly Monaco. Showing off his muscular physique, the 26-year-old Ukrainian splashed around in a kiddie pool and even shared a passionate kiss with the General Hospital actress.

"Kelly, I think you've been upstaged by the Speedos," judge Bruno Tonioli said. "Never work with Speedos or animals!"

As Chmerkovskiy covered his groin, he joked, "I just want everyone to know that it's cold in here!"
