Rumer Willis might have rocked the Foxtrot during the Season 20 premiere of “Dancing with the Stars,” but can Val Chmerkovskiy’s partner continue to impress the judges when episode 2 of the 2015 competition airs? Rumer, who earned the highest score last week, sure seems to think so! In fact, the daughter of actors Bruce Willis and Demi Moore is barely even sweating the competition of this season’s ABC dance series, which consists of an Olympic athlete, a “Bachelor,” and a combat veteran.
During a recent interview with “Good Morning America,” Rumer, 26, revealed that she isn’t concerned with the possibility of her fellow celebrity competitors surpassing her in the competition. “I don't feel we have a lot of competition,” she boldly stated. “I’m really confident… I think that the heart that both of us have and will put into each dance, regardless of the scores – to me, at least – was most important.”
Not only does Rumer think she and Val, 28, will go far in the Season 20 competition, “The House Bunny” actress also recently revealed during an interview with Larry King that she’s pretty sure she and her partner will be taking home the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy. “I think it’s going to be his year,” she admitted of Val possibly winning for the first time.
Val has appeared on “DWTS” as a professional dancer since Season 13 of the ABC reality series, but has never won first place – although, he’s come pretty close! In Season 16, Val and his partner Zendaya Coleman took home second while Derek Hough and Kellie Pickler snagged the title of champions.
So, that begs the question: Will Val and Rumer win Season 20 of “DWTS”? While we know Rumer is already making room in her home for the sparkling trophy, it seems Val is also confident in their dancing ability as a couple. “She’s very talented,” he spoke of his partner on “GMA.” "She’s got great genes. She works very hard.”
The twosome will reportedly be taking on the Cha Cha during the upcoming installment of “DWTS” to Adele’s hit single “Rumour Has It.”
Do you think Val and Rumer have what it takes to win Season 20 of “Dancing with the Stars”? Sound off in the comments section below and don’t forget to watch episode 2 of the ABC series on Monday, March 24, at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC.
