What about Dancing With the Stars? You’ve been vocal about wanting to do the show. Is that a possibility?

"We’re definitely talking to all the right people about 'Dancing With the Stars'. They are definitely talking back to us, so it’s just going to be a matter of time. Really, when it comes down to it, if you’ve chosen a whole cast of people, and the last spot is open [and] you’ve got Johnny Weir…That’s all good, but that will be easily trumped by somebody else who would be more outrageous on the show. Like if it was between me and Lindsay Lohan for the last spot. Obviously you want to see Lindsay Lohan dancing in that ankle bracelet. I definitely would love to dance. I’ve already chosen Karina Smirnoff as who I would like to dance with. I got to meet her, and I checked my size next to her. I love her, and I love the show. I think I’d be great. A lot of people expect me to have really good rhythm when I’m not on ice, but it’s quite the opposite. It would be a situation where I really would have to learn to dance. I’ve never taken dance classes or anything. I would be a fish out of water, for sure. I think that would be interesting."

Fellow ice skater, Evan Lysacek, did pretty well on DWTS. Is that an added incentive to be on the show and perform well?

"Absolutely. I don’t take on a project unless I know the end result is going to make me happy. If I can’t give 100 percent to something, I choose not to do it because it’s very difficult to have so many pots on the fire at one time. If I wanted to do Dancing With the Stars I would fight and fight to get on the show, which we are. Once I’m there, I’m not going for any other place aside from first. I think it would be great if I won and Evan wasn’t able to win this season. I think it would be funny."
