Cheryl Burke is hoping to have Caitlyn Jenner on the judging panel for this year’s Miss USA pageant.
Caitlyn Jenner has turned the world on its ear since completing her transition from male to female last month, and Cheryl Burke thinks Caitlyn’s courage would be useful on the judging panel.
Cheryl Burke said, “I think Caitlyn Jenner would be an amazing judge. I think she’s so empowering. A lot of people look up to her.”
Caitlyn Jenner was invited to judge, but no word yet on whether she will do it or not.
Cheryl Burke has a personal connection with Caitlyn’s struggle.
She said, “Because I have been bullied and attacked about my body, body image has always been an issue for me.”
She added, “You don’t have to be a size zero to be beautiful. You have to embrace your body, whether it’s curvy or whatever you may be. You have to embrace who you are. Beauty comes from the inside not out.”
Cheryl Burke also mentioned the possibility that Caitlyn Jenner could be a future contestant on Dancing with the Stars.
Cheryl Burke said, “I think Caitlyn would be amazing on DWTS. The whole family has basically done it. I danced with Rob. Kim did it a few seasons ago. Caitlyn and Tony Dovolani would look great together, or actually Caitlyn and Val [Chmerkovskiy].”
Speaking of Caitlyn Jenner, her new show, I Am Cait, premieres August 2nd.
In one clip, Caitlyn Jenner asked, “Why did I decide to do a series?”
She answered, saying, “I am telling my story…This is about getting to be who you really are. It’s going to be quite a journey, we’re going to do some good.
