Victoria Arlen and Val Chmerkovskiy
Arlen is a former Paralympic swimmer who won three silver medals and one gold medal during the London 2012 Paralympic games.

“This means everything,” Arlen said. “It’s a dream come true and it’s something I always wanted to do but never really knew if I was ever going to have that chance, just giving circumstances and everything. I can honestly say though that learning to walk was easier than learning to ballroom dance.”
