Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy may have come in third on this season of Dancing With The Stars but it could have been a lot worse if Val was paired with the celebrity he wanted to be paired with.
Apparently, Val didn't want to be paired with Kelly -- or any other of the celebs who had a chance at winning during the All Star season. Who did he want to be paired with then?
None other than Bristol Palin, who had improved a bit but still had no chance of winning or even coming close.
"Going into the season, I had very different views and my imagination was taking me in a different way. My expectations were very, very different. I was really happy to the idea of Bristol Palin, only because I was so discouraged with my last two seasons," Val said.
Luckily, Kelly Monaco was a nice surprise and brought Val Chmerkovskiy all the way to the finals for the first time since he appeared on the show three seasons ago.
Do you think Val would have been good for Bristol Palin? Would she have gotten into the finals or still have been booted off early on?
