Dancing with the Stars‘s Season 10 runner-up calls sexy ski champ Lindsey “perfect” for the show, and reveals how he feels about Landon Donovan joining the cast!

Given that Evan Lysacek placed second on the last season of Dancing with the Stars, he’s the perfect person to predict who should appear on the ABC series’ 11th season. The figure skater has one very qualified athlete in mind: Olympian Lindsey Vonn!

“Without a doubt, Lindsey Vonn [should join the DWTS cast],” the 25-year-old skater told during the post-ESPY party at Drai’s in Hollywood July 14. He added, “I was telling her all day that she has to do it. Plain and simple, she needs to be on the next season of DWTS. She would be perfect.”

He has a point! The gorgeous 25-year-old skier not only won a gold medal in downhill at the 2010 Winter Olympics, but also graced the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue in February – she’d be a combination of Sheila Ireland and Misty May-Treanor!

But Lindsey isn’t the only famous athlete Evan wants to see hit the parquet next season. He also gives soccer star Landon Donovan, who we reported is in discussions to put on his Dancing shoes, a thumbs-up. “[Landon] has one main thing you need for the show, coordination,” he said, calling him “perfect” for DWTS.

“I’d love to see him on the show,” Evan added. “I hope the rumors are true.”
