Skating With the Stars crowned its first winner last night. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that Rebecca Budig took home the crown, since she was the only one who could skate right from the start. She competed in the finale against Bethenny Frankel, which also isn’t surprising. Brandon Mychal Smith cheered on from the audience, even though he left the show early due to a “stomach virus,” which was probably just a fancy way of saying he didn’t feel like skating anymore. And who could blame him? The show’s ratings took a nosedive after the first episode. Will Skating return for a second season? Only time will tell, but I won’t hold my breath.

Name: Jonny Moseley
Claim to Fame: Member of the U.S. Ski Team
Jonny Moseley competed in the 1998 Winter Olympics in Japan where he brought home a gold medal. He competed again in the 2002 Olympics, but came in fourth. As far as Jonny’s television stints go, he was the host of the MTV reality show Real World/Road Rules Challenge for 3 seasons.
I’m guessing Jonny will go far in Skating With the Stars. I know skiing is a whole different ball of wax from figure skating, but they both involve sliding around on cold stuff, so how different can they really be? I kid, people, I kid. But still, he’s an athlete and very used to competing.
Skating With the Stars premieres on November 22, 2010!
