Cheryl Burke may not be winning this season of Dancing With the Stars, but she is revealing who could!

The pro hoofer tells us there's one contestant she thinks has a leg up on the rest of the competition, despite having never come in at the top of the scoreboard.

Which celeb does she think will nab that mirror-ball trophy? Read on to find out...

"I mean, I love Kirstie [Alley]," Burke exclusively told us at this weekend's Race to Erase MS gala in L.A. "Kirstie's amazing. Kirstie is, for me, what the show's all about...She's gone through so many ups and downs on the show. She has a great attitude about the whole thing. And you know, she's not a dancer. She's coming out here, learning how to dance, the way it should be."

So does Burke think the former Cheers star and her lovable personality will make it all the way to number one?

"I think so," she said. "And people are just behind her 100 percent."

Meanwhile, we had to ask Burke if she would ever follow in fellow DWTSer Karina Smirnoff's footsteps and pose nude for Playboy.

"I would never do it," Burke said. "These are my private parts that only I can see...I've done plenty of sexy photo shoots, but I would never show my boobs or that area."
