Val Chmerkovskiy Thanks Fans for Dancing With the Stars Win

by at .

Dancing With the Stars professionalVal Chmerkovskiy and celebrity partner Rumor Willis are probably still basking in the glory of their victory.

Rumer and Val won season 20 of DWTS with the help of their fans, so Val took a moment to thanks their fans with a heartfelt message on Instagram soon afterward.

Sharing an adorable crayon drawing of the two from the finale episode, Val addressed “incredible fans" via a heartfelt message and wrote:

“Wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all of the incredible fans of #TeamValenRue that supported us this season.

“Every edit, every kind comment, every phone call and vote casted we appreciate it so so very much. It is incredibly humbling to know how many people genuinely wanted to see Rumer and I win. Means the world, today and forever. Love you guys very very much."

This is Val’s first trophy on DWTS.  But winning runs in the family.  His older brother Maksim won a mirrorball trophy on season 18 with partner Meryl Davis.

The elder Chmerkovskiy left a message on Instagram, too.

On a photo with fellow DWTS pro-dancer Tony Dovolani, he wrote: ”BANG BANG BANG!!! Our balls get shinier every year!!!” 

Rumer got choked up in an interview where she also expressed her gratitude for the experience on the show.
