Lindsay Arnold Would Really Love If Nathan Chen Joined 'Dancing With The Stars' - Here's Why

Lindsay Arnold has her eyes on a lot of athletes for the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars – but one of them is sticking out more – Nathan Chen!

The reigning champ (she won with Jordan Fisher last fall!) spoke to ET about her dream list for the all-athlete season and why she think Nathan would be perfect for the show.

“Nathan is someone who really inspired me during the Olympics because of his fight,” she says. “He came back so strong after a rough performance and absolutely killed it out on the ice.”

Obviously, Nathan and Lindsay both being from Utah is a plus, too.

“He is also a fellow Utahn, so that gives us an automatic connection.”

Figure Skater Nathan Chen Plans To Go To Yale

Figure Skater Nathan Chen Plans To Go To Yale

Nathan Chen is headed to Yale!

The 18-year-old Olympic gold medalist learned the news of his acceptance while on the Stars on Ice tour in Japan last week.

“Going to Yale next fall is the goal right now,” Nathan said recently. “I am going to Bulldog Days, where I will talk about everything and try to figure things out.”

Nathan has since changed his Instagram bio to include “Yale ’22.”

Though Nathan has plans to attend Yale to pursue a career in medicine, he also doesn’t plan on giving up ice skating any time soon.

“I’m just barely [two seasons] at the senior level, and I feel like I have a lot more to do in the sport,” he said. “I don’t think it’s my time to retire yet.”

Nathan Chen Wraps Up Season By Winning Gold at World Figure Skating Championships 2018

If you’ve been following Nathan Chen since the Olympics last month, than you know over the weekend, he blew all of his competition away at the 2018 World Figure Skating Championships!

The 18-year-old figure skater came back from a disappointing outcome at the Olympics, to break pretty much all the records before him at the event.

Nathan earned 321.40 points, which was almost 50 points ahead of the second place finisher, Japan’s Shoma Uno (he won silver at the Olympics).

He also attempted, and landed, six quads in his long program; became the first figure skater from the US to win the World Championships since Evan Lysacek in 2009, and the youngest since Russia’s Evgeni Plushenko in 2001.

“Genuinely so grateful for the experiences–both good and bad–and for the love and support I’ve received all season,” Nathan shared on Instagram later. “Thanks everyone!!”

Next up for Nathan: deciding on a college!

Nathan Chen might be the quad king, but he’s also a really good guitar player and singer too.

Nathan also recently spoke to USA Today, and if you’re wondering if you’ll see him at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics — you will.

“It really started when I was a little kid, wanting to go to these Olympics and the next,” Nathan shared. “Four years is not that long, so I’ll try to plan and approach that as best possible.”

He added, “Obviously, I came here because I want to go on that podium. For the long, I took all that expectation, all that pressure off myself and went out there and really just enjoyed myself on the ice and realized why I’m so passionate about skating.”
