DWTS Duo Val and Janel Awkwardly Address Romance Rumors



On the finale of "Dancing with the Stars" a fan on Twitter asked Janel and Val the question that has been on all of our minds for quite some time.

"Are you and Val dating or what? ... This is awkward. ... Uh, yes, no, what is it? ... This is an arranged marriage. This is not dating," said Val on ABC's Tuesday night finale.

The duo have always been affectionate toward one another, but the dating rumors started swirling when, according to Heavy.com, Janel and longtime boyfriend, Payson Lewis, broke up earlier in the season.

Do you see romantic tension between them?



And as Hollywood Life pointed out, those rumors certainly haven't calmed down -- especially after Monday's episode when Janel told co-host Erin Andrews that she "loves" Val.

But Janel and Val have undoubtedly had a great season of "DWTS" together. According to USA Today, Val says their freestyle dance on Monday night "was designed to be a 'reflection of our journey on the show.'"

In the end, Janel and Val placed third overall in the competition. But Janel seemed happy with the results, calling Val her "trophy."
