It’s no secret that the Dancing With the Stars pros are talented, gorgeous, and active on social media, but it’s always jarring to see all of those things put together. However, we’re not complaining about this pic of pantsless Val Chmerkovskiy.

The kicker is that Karina Smirnoff, Val’s pal and his brother Maks’s ex-fiancée, snapped the pic. She captioned the revealing photo, “@iamvalc ‘Who took my pants???’” but didn’t explain why he was pantsless in her presence.

With a little digging, we figured out that he was playing basketball with Maks and fellow pro Tony Dovolani, so he was probably just changing in or out of his gym clothes. Though there’s a chance that one of them stole his clothes, too — that cast is full of jokesters, after all.

Though it may seem a bit strange that Val was hanging out without pants with his brother’s ex, they’re all good friends. Thankfully, everyone on DWTS is professional and fantastic, so no awkwardness here. (Well, except for Val, maybe — he was just hanging around in his boxers searching for his pants.)

Did you know that Val and Karina were friends after her breakup with Maks? Share your thoughts below!
