Janel Parrish, ‘Dancing With the Stars’: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Check out all the info on Janel Parrish, who is currently competing on Dancing With the Stars. Read on for the info on her boyfriend, her DWTS partner, and her PLL dancing style.


1. Parrish’s First Dance on DWTS Will Have Some Pretty Little Liars Influence In It

Janel Parrish is said to be incorporating the show Pretty Little Liars in her first routine on Dancing With the Stars. The show has such a large following that it will definitely help Parrish in the votes. Wetpaint reported:

Never underestimate the power of the PLL fandom. PLL is one of the most tweeted-about shows of all time, and the fanbase loves Janel. Now that her character has been unceremoniously murdered on the show, she gets the sympathy vote as well as the brainiac badass one. With millions of PLLers on her side (not to mention the combined tweeting power of her PLL co-stars), Janel is a serious contender for DWTS queen.

Recently, Parrish was killed off the show. For more information on her character Mona’s death, check out the below link:

Val Chmerkovskiy is Parrish’s pro partner on Dancing With the Stars and he says he’s never been so excited for a season before. Val told Time:

I am humbled by the fact that people have a lot of expectations for her and myself. I want to surpass those expectations. I think everybody on the show should think that way about their partners and their opportunities.
