Do you think Elisabeth will “survive” her first ice skating lesson with Dancing With The Stars alum Kristi Yamaguchi on ABC’s new show Thin Ice?

Olympic gold medalist and Season 6 Dancing With the Stars champ Kristi Yamaguchi is putting away her dancing shoes and returning to the ice for ABC’s newest show Thin Ice – but this time she gets to be the boss and do the teaching, not the practicing!

And guess who she’ll be teaching? None other than Elisabeth Hasselbeck! The controversial The View co-host will test her skills on the ice in an episode airing March 19th. Considering the mom of three finished fourth place in Survivor: The Australian Outback, we think Elisabeth may have a few tricks up her sleeve!

Elisabeth, 32 is also playing host on the show alongside figure skater Kurt Browning; Kristi, 38, will act as a judge alongside professional figure skaters Katarina Witt and Dick Button. With technical requirements thrown out the window, five couples will compete for viewers’ and judges’ votes. The only requirement: to entertain.
