Ohno, who won the coveted “DWTS” disco ball in 2007, shared his early thoughts about the new season during a guest appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” Wednesday (Mar. 3).
When asked by Leno his take on the new “Dancing” lineup, Ohno joked that “Pamela Anderson was too top heavy” to win the title, but predicted that ice skating gold medal winner Evan Lysacek “will do very well.”
Athletes have traditionally made it to the finals of the show, and Ohno apparently doesn’t think this season will be any different. Lysacek recently joined the cast of “DWTS,” following in the footsteps of fellow Olympians like Ohno, Kristi Yamaguchi, and Shawn Johnson — all of whom won the show.
Well, we’ll find out when “DWTS” returns on Monday, Mar. 22 on ABC.
