Skating with Celebrities Why...

Travis Stork, The Bachelor

Skating with Celebrities Why is it that I saw more falls during the recent Olympic ice-dancing competition than during the entire season of Skating with Celebrities? I don't care if the Torino routines were technically and artistically more difficult — it's just not right. And speaking of the recent global games, I was so out of the loop. I had no idea that Sir CrankyPants was actually Sasha Cohen's coach. Plus, I had no clue that Jillian's partner, John Zimmerman, was married to Italian Olympic skater Silvia Fontana. But back to business. Much like Sunday night's inflated Dancing with the Stars finale, this baby could have been wrapped up in about 20 minutes.

TV's 10 Most Memorable Winter Olympics Moments

Nancy Kerrigan in Lillehammer

Before Michelle Kwan was forced to bid a sad adieu to her gold-medal dreams... before Ted Ligety came from nowhere to win the alpine combined... and before the world had ever heard of a Flying Tomato, these Winter Olympians gave TV-viewers much to talk about and forever remember. 1. Heiden's Fantastic Five — Lake Placid 1980In the speed-skating equivalent of running — and winning — a sprint, a mile, a marathon and nearly everything in between, Eric Heiden achieved what fellow Olympian Dan Jansen calls "the single greatest feat in the history of sports."

His incredible accomplishment has never been duplicated. read more

Jillian Barberie on Skating 'n' Dating

Jillian Barberie, Skating with Celebrities

Jillian Barberie, the breakout star of Fox's Skating with Celebrities (Mondays at 8 pm/ET), shares with TV Guide why Dorothy Hamill made her teary and how true love is hard to find. TV Guide: Because you were a competitive skater as a kid in Canada, some people think you have an unfair advantage. Aren't you kind of a ringer? Jillian Barberie: Well, I hung up my skates at 13 and I'm 39 now: You do the math. It's what I did as a kid after school to kind of keep me out of trouble, and I loved it. But by the time I was 13, I wanted to go to movies and hang out with my friends and go out with boys. I wanted to major in boys. TV Guide: But you're able to read more
