The big story was that defending Worlds champion and 2010 Olympic Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek, not competing at the Worlds this year due to his participation in the reality TV series, “Dancing with the Stars” . Since the prize money at the Worlds is about $15,000 more than “Dancing with the Starts”, Evan probably decided to do the TV show because of the incredible exposure that comes with it.
