Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy: “We Love Southern California!”

After scoring the first perfect score of the season for their “Westside Story” routine, “Dancing With the Stars” leaderboard champs Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy shared their favorite things about Southern California with us:

Janel: “Oh my gosh, the weather! The fact that you are right by the ocean and it’s a short drive up to the mountians if you want to see snow. I love hiking and being out in nature, so many great parks. I’m from Hawaii, so I love being by the ocean.”

Val: “The geographics are beautiful in Southern California. Coming from New York, I have a lot of affection for the West Coast .  I appreciate the room that Southern California leaves for you to be yourself and enjoy life and not have to run after something all day every day. It allows you to enjoy the free things in life. You don’t have to hustle for a smile in Southern California. Coming from Brooklyn, I really mean that!”
