Janel Parrish and Val Chermkovskiy are dancing partners on Dancing with the Stars, but the rumor mill has been churning gossip about their real-life relationship status as well. Are Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy dating? Well, the details remain murky, but whether they’re dating or not, Janel and Val are definitely playing up their relationship on DWTS to increase their publicity.
The two constantly post photos on Twitter and Instagram, and they seem way too friendly to just be ‘friends’ – and they know that people are talking. Plus, Access Hollywood Live recently made Janel and Val take a lie detector test to determine the truth behind their relationship, but the truth still remains murky. See, when asked about whether she had ‘romantic feelings’ for Val, Janel said ‘no’ – BUT the lie detector test didn’t work, so we don’t know if she was telling the truth. Plus, lie detector tests are probably one of the most unreliable tools in our arsenal to determine the truth, particularly because they’re so easily cheated or tampered with.
However [and this is the interesting part], when Val was asked the same question about Janel, he said ‘yes’ and then put his arms around her and kissed her! Seriously, they may as well throw in the towel and confirm their relationship status.
Anyway, the are-they-or-aren’t-they-dating nature of their relationship will work wonders for Janel’s and Val’s chances on Dancing with the Stars, and it’s already given them a huge publicity boost. Many fans are already invested in their so-called romance, despite the obvious PR showmance nature of it.
