Even tho it's not likely for Val to be there in person, what if he's still there in a recorded message that they play before she gets honored? Ya know how they prepare packages that play at ceremonies like these? I would love it and can just imagine how he'd go on and on about her being an inspiration. I mean, he's already said so much about during Dwts.
i’m thinking that would be pretty unlikely and we’ll just have to keep our eyes peeled for tweets…
but if he pop up in a video they would just have to get married because enough is enough.
Can u imagine getting a picture of them tomorrow at the ceremony she's going to. I mean she was the reason he got his inspiration back. I know it's not going to happen but hey one can dream.
Ummm anon why are you putting this in my head?
Because now I’m imagining Val being there because he’s like Exhibit A of why she should get that award.
But I think if nothing else I can imagine he’ll be composing a very heartfelt tweet saying she’s all deserving.
He’s been in hiding and then emerges to like something. And it’s hers of course.
It’s small but it makes me smile.

So I’ve been thinking and I’m curious about what y’all think about a few things concerning DWTS. Keep in mind I’m not trying to be an asshole or even a smartass (for once), I’m just genuinely wondering. They’re not all Valdaya related, but I’m still interested to see what you guys as Valdaya…
I wrote an essay:
I think Amber could have won with someone else. She can move! And has a great personality and great fans. Her win was well deserved. No one can justifiably say it was fixed for her to win or whatever, she looked amazing dancing and put in a bunch of work. Plus she has a bunch of fans by staring in Glee. All those factors gave her the win.
Now Derek… ugh Derek. We can’t lie. He is a great choreographer. He is. He knows how to win. He knows what to do. I think he’s been extremely fortunate with partners. Most of his partners could move. He’s a favorite and has been around for a while, which helps with his fanbase and his ability to get good partners. The producers want him on for a while because he draws in his own fans, so they want to give him a good partner.
Would Amber have won with Tony? From my gut, I don’t think so. I don’t think Tony’s choreography is up to snuff with the other pros. I think he’s a great teacher though. I think his win with Melissa in s15 was amazing but honestly it was shocking.
I think Amber would have won with Val, Mark, Sasha (I looooved Sasha’s choreography – I hope he’s back next season!).
Would Z have won with Derek? I don’t even want to think about that. But I feel that if the same thing happened with the voting crash, Z would not have won with Derek. I think the online voting thing completely screwed her over. She was going to win. I always wonder if the producers saw that Kellie might have had an edge with phone votes in previous weeks, while Z may have dominated online, and sort of fixed it that way. (Seriously… how does that happen? ABC has money for a competent IT team) Why would they do that though? Maybe they would earn a profit somehow by her winning. Or they wanted to keep Derek on board and this was the only way of doing so.
Would she have won with Mark? I love Mark but he’s too short for her, lol. But if that wasn’t an issue I think that she would have had a shot there too.
Maks has a lot of loyal fans. He added spice and diversity to the show, which people liked. I think it was just unfortunate circumstances, again, as to why he didn’t win. I honestly didn’t watch every season of DWTS so I can say for certain. But people LOVE Maks, whenever he does an interview people beg him to come back. He has fans that watched because of him.
Does Val have a shot of winning? I think ABSOLUTELY 100% YES. He’s an amazing choreographer and teacher and (I think) the best dancer on the show (I mean he IS usually front and center with pro group dances…). A LOT of people fell in love with him after seeing how he treated Z last season. He’s only been around for 5 seasons so far. I think people like him more than Maks (my opinion). Val is wayyy more humble and (arguably!) a better dancer (I mean… that’s what Maks said). Plus he’s funny and cute so that doesn’t hurt. His fan base is growing steadily and people want to see him with a good dancer because they want to see him throughout the season. Val is becoming a favorite!! I think he’ll constantly be paired with good partners.
But there are so many aspects that go into this. How the celeb connects with the audience and fanbase. But then other times that doesn’t seem to matter as much… this show is complicated.
But I think Val will win. Yup.
"First rule of Jay Howden we don't talk about Jay Howden" love that. That just made LOL.
He’s just a wannabe. Wannabe famous. Wannabe Z’s man. Get in line bud. The veryyyyyyy long line.
Are you working on another Valdaya Crack video? Or is that done..
Come Friday 12:30 PM EST I’ll be done with finals and will have all the time in the world to invest into making Valdaya Crack #5. Ideas are there. I just usually end up getting sucked in and spending like 6 hour straight increments editing… and i don’t want to that during this week!
But I can’t wait because… well… I think it will be a funny one.
Can you explain this whole Jay Howden and Zendaya thing? Im new to this fandom... kinda lost....
First rule of Jay Howden is that we don’t talk about Jay Howden.
he’s just some guy that tweets Z and tries to flirt with her. i think he’s trying to make it in hollywood. i remember over the summer the tag was worried because he was going to LA and people thought he was going to stalk Z lol. but nothing happened.
some people like to call him “jay whoden”
and a few times i think she tweeted him and she commented on one of his IG videos, like she’s done with plenty of fans before. he’s not a big deal.
but all in all he needs this:
