Finally! We’ve been waiting for a new photo of Dancing With the Starspros Val Chmerkovskiy and Derek Hough to use as desktop wallpaper. (After Photoshopping ourselves between them, of course. Don’t judge.) So here's one, below. Unfortunately, it's flawed.
As Val explained when sharing the pic on Instagram, “One of the producer snapped this tragic shot of @derekhough and I after the show…"
Photo: Val and Derek's "tragic" photo
It is tragic — both of their shirts are on!
That's the only glaring mistake, but we also wouldn't mind seeing them in color. And, yeah, the matching hotties are kind of doing the old man short pants/high socks thing. As a fan asked in the comments, “Where’s the flood”? But that’s still OK. The real problem is the top half of the clothing.
They shouldn't have teased us on Monday's Season 17, Week 8 show, with both of them showing off their ultra-fit torsos. First Val had us drooling in his Jazz, then Derek wore a sailor suit — and let Amber Riley rip it off.
Now we feel like they've set a standard too high for over-dressed pics like this. Try again, boys!
What do you think, DWTS fans? Is this a truly “tragic” moment, or do you like their coordinated outfits? Sound off below!
