I think Val is as close as they have to the original pros.....probably because he was around back then. Also, unlike his brother, he seems to enjoy and appreciate being on the show so I don't think he's going anywhere.
Artem has the potential to reach that level but they've got to give him a real shot with a good partner.
The others.....well, like I said, they may be good dancers but they don't have that "it" factor that made the original pros so good. Jonathan and Alec didn't have it, which is why they didn't last very long or reach the level of popularity of the other guys. That's how I look at Keo, Alan and Sasha. Gleb just flat out annoys the crap out of me and after the failed experiment when they first brought him in to replace Maks, I don't know why they keep trotting him out there.
