Magic Mike has nothing on him! Val Chmerkovskiy brought the heat — and abs — when he recently dropped by Us Weekly’s New York City headquarters. During a raunchy round of truth or dare, the Dancing With the Stars pro dancer ripped off his T-shirt and gave one lucky employee a sexy (did that just happen!?) striptease that still has Us blushing.
“I wasn’t expecting that! I thought you were just going to dance! My mom is going to be so excited to watch that,” assistant editor Jamie Blynn quipped. “Wow, you’re a natural. Have you done this before?”
Actually, he has! Chmerkovskiy, 29, revealed that he and Derek Hough stripped down for fellow dancer Lindsay Arnold’s bachelorette party back in May. “I show up and Derek’s there. He’s there, ‘Yo, you too!?'” He joked: “Derek and I were literally strippers for her bachelorette party.”
Chmerkovskiy was just as game with other questions – with his shirt on, that is. He dropped and did 10 push-ups, revealed what it was really like to make Bruce Willis (dad to Season 20 champ Rumer) cry last season, acted out his favorite emojis, and demonstrated his most embarrassing dance move.
When not making Us swoon, the hunky Ukrainian is next gearing up to take the floor with his celebrity dance partner Tamar Braxton. During his memorable visit, he also dished on the pair’s first meeting, and if he’s up for a little dance-off with contestant Nick Carter. Which Backstreet Boys song is his choice for the competition? Watch the videos to find out!
Season 21 of Dancing With the Stars premieres on Monday, Sept. 14, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
