What a strange sense of humor he has that he thinks it would be "funny" if he won whereas Evan didn't.

I think it would be absolutely hilarious if he actually managed to win over Evan. I guess I'm strange too. :lol: I'm actually happy to see that even despite retirement it looks like the epic Johnny vs. Evan battle will continue to live on in other ways. I can see these two competing at wheelchair races in their nursing homes when their 95.

Well, it wouldn't be "over" Evan but I get what you mean. If he wants to win, he better hope he gets Julianne Hough or one of the other more favored pros instead of Karina... :shuffle:

You are probably correct. IMO, if Johnny does get on DWTS, they will probably assign him to work with Anna, and the poor woman will be bothered to the end of the year with press questions asking her to compare and contrast the two! (IMO, if Evan possibly can do it, he should be in the audience a few times, cheering for Johnny ... which would shock the h*** out of people!)

Haha, can you imagine all of the crazy video packages with Johnny and Anna screaming at each other in Russian??? :rofl:

Anna is too tall for Johnny. She'd have to lift him! Although he'd probably prefer that. (So nyah Stephane. lol) He can still scream at Karina in Russian

The problem is Karina would scream back...and she gets some major hate from viewers. Especially Maks fangirls these days.

Much as I'm not thrilled about the missing Wonder Triplet coming back, it would be...interesting...to see him with Julianne. Though height-wise Cheryl or Chelsie might be best (I have this image of him not being especially tall.) Or...how tall is Lacey? She's willing to do OTT costumes and hair already...

And he can say he's never taken any dance ever and he will STILL get called a ringer like Kristi and Evan. Skating being JUST LIKE DANCING, donchaknow. :angryfire :wall:

I've been a few feet away from him, and Weir is not short. He's not a 6-footer, but he still reads tall.

Weir is 5'9" according to his official site.

That makes sense. He's actually 5'9", as opposed to the 5'6"-5'7" men who claim the same. Not that it makes much of a difference in real life, but to dancers and skater teams, it can.

He's not tall by any means but I think one of the reasons why people think he's so small is because he's so thin. Or at least he is in competition season. He's hardcore into pilates and stretching so his body is very long and lithe. One of the reasons why he has such impressive lines to look at on the ice is because his limbs seem elongated in proportion to his body.
