The DWTS pro took to Instagram on Wednesday to post a short video of himself and Olivia, 21, practicing ahead of the upcoming episode.

In the clip, Val twirled Olivia around the dance floor as she wore a white crop top and baggy gray pants.

He captioned the post: “In the process . Been really cool connecting with this young lady and getting to choreograph and dance with her. Excited to perform this piece next Monday.”

While taking to the comments section, one fan wrote: “I honestly was expecting her to be terrible but she’s great.”

The two-time DWTS champ admitted he had similar expectations, writing: “Me too.”

During Monday’s season premiere, Olivia and Val hit the dance floor to perform a salsa.

The performance earned the duo a score of 25 out of 40.


While Olivia was likely ecstatic to compete on DWTS, many viewers slammed the YouTube star after host Tyra Banks introduced her as a “fashion, beauty, and lifestyle influencer.”

Fans were quick to take it to social media, as one person wrote: “Olivia, you are best known for your mom paying to get you into college.”

Another added: “We all know what you’re best known for and it’s not that,” while one called her a “spoiled brat” and said, “she is not an influencer!”

One chimed in: “Can’t believe they let this child on here. Did she pay her way on there, too?”

Olivia- who is the daughter of actress Lori Loughlin, 57, and designer Mossimo Giannulli, 58- has created a fanbase for herself by sharing videos on YouTube over the years.


However, the 21-year-old is likely most recognized for her parents’ involvement in the infamous college admissions scandal.

The couple, who tied the knot in 1997, also share daughter Isabella, 22.

Lori and Mossimo allegedly paid $500,000 to get their daughters into the University of Southern California.

In order to do so, they reportedly faked a photo of their two daughters rowing to get them admitted as crew recruits even though neither of them participated in the sport.

The Full House star and her husband pleaded guilty in May 2020 to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud in the admissions scandal.

Lori was released from federal lockup in Dublin, California in December after two months.

Meanwhile, Mossimo was sentenced to five months in prison and was released from home confinement in April.
