Shaun White has no problem risking life and limb doing some of his crazy-ass snowboarding stunts, but hitting the dance floor to tango or waltz?

Forget about it!

The Olympic gold medalist tells me he has been invited to compete on Dancing With the Stars, but he's no Apolo Ohno or Evan Lysacek...

"I was approached but I don't know if I was made for it," White told me at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. "I mean, I don't stretch enough and the outfits! I'd have to have approval."

Everyone's favorite ginger mop top also revealed, "I've been hit up by a couple of [television] shows, but I don't know what I'm going to do yet, so I don't want to say anything."

We wouldn't be surprised if Shaun hears from a certain animated series soon after we post this story. "I really like Family Guy," White said. "I love that show. It's unreal." (FYI: He's already got an in—a Family Guy writer wrote the script for his upcoming Ubisoft skateboarding video game.)

Perhaps he'll audition for America's Got Talent someday. "I've been playing a lot of music," White said. "I got a guitar when I was 17 and have been playing ever since."


Evan Lyaseck is the latest Olympian to cha-cha-cha over to Dancing With the Stars. But the gold medalist is hurtin'! Get the painful details here.
