Val Chmerkovskiy Wants Oprah Winfrey to Be His Next ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Partner (EXCLUSIVE)

Tebow on 'DWTS'?
J.R. Martinez gives Celebuzz the scoop!
After finishing in 10th place on season 14 of Dancing With the Stars, pro Val Chmerkovskiy is already eying his partner for next season. His pick? Oprah Winfrey!

Opening up about the media mogul, he gushed about his dream of teaching her to salsa and jive.

“I would do my best to teach her some dance moves. I’m a huge fan, and I admire her,” the 26-year-old dancer told Celebuzz at the Dr. Scholl’s “Get Up & Go!” Event in NYC.

So does he think Oprah could win the Mirror Ball trophy?

“She has what it takes to be humble and learn the moves. She has the drive to be successful. Those are the qualities I’d want in a partner,” Chmerkovskiy said, adding that she’d likely make it to the end.

“Someone as successful as her wouldn’t be where she is, if she didn’t have good work ethic… I don’t need a supermodel, or athlete. I just want someone who has the desire to do well and put in the work,” the sexy dancing pro added.

Do you think Oprah should be on Dancing With the Stars? Sound off in the comments — and watch the video below to see Val teaching La La Anthony and Wilmer Valderrama to salsa.
