Cutthroat competition is a hallmark of Olympic figure skating. Who could forget that whole kneecap-whacking incident between Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan back in the mid-'90s? These days, the men are also proving to be highly competitive — on and off the ice. As figure skater and "Dancing With the Stars" finalist Evan Lysacek prepares for his last routine on Tuesday's (May 25) show, fellow skater Johnny Weir has made it clear who he'll be rooting for.
"I don't [Lysacek should win]. I think Nicole is much better," Weir told MTV News Monday at the "Sex and the City 2" premiere in New York City. "Evan and I have kind of had a war of words over the past month or so, and he's not somebody I'll root for in anything. So, definitely no."
But the skater known for his flashy ensembles noted that although Scherzinger seems to have the advantage, Lysacek does have an edge. "Evan's a professional ice skater," Weir said. "It's kind of the same thing."
In the Nicole vs. Evan debate, it's easy to forget that Andrews could also take home the disco-ball trophy. Still, Weir insisted the sports reporter isn't really in the running. "No, it's between Evan and Nicole," he said. "And Nicole won't fall down in a pair of seven-inch Louboutins. I think the others would."
