Will Flight Time leap from 'The Amazing Race' to 'DWTS'?

98246_D0320 He may not have won the $1 million, but could "Amazing Race" also-ran Herbert "Flight Time" Lang be redirecting his competitive sights to a shiny Mirrorball trophy instead?

The just-eliminated Flight Time (pictured, left), of the "Race's" popular Harlem Globetrotters team of Flight Time and Big Easy, cracked open the possibility of outfitting himself in glittery face decals and sequins when asked by if there was a chance that he could show up on another reality show. "I feel like I can do anything now," he responded. "I enjoy watching 'Dancing With the Stars' and I think I’m a pretty good dancer."

ABC itself doesn't comment on potential casting choices. But I think Flight Time would be a great addition to the "DWTS" family. First of all, he fulfills that requisite sports quotient. Plus, he's so darn likable: The man is a Harlem Globetrotter, for crying out loud -- those guys eke out goodwill just by spinning basketballs on their index fingers. Not only that, Flight Time himself was a congenial, stand-up guy during his "Race" run, which no doubt only won him more fans. He has patience in spades and doesn't take himself too seriously. Finally, need I mention that this guy's got rhythm? Remember how he got down when they had to do that Swedish farmer dance? And those awesome arm extensions he showed off to the music of "Don Giovanni" during the recent opera challenge? Methinks he and Edyta could make a good team -- no offense to Big Easy, of course. (Though she, being Polish, would also probably have heard of fellow European Franz Kafka, and most likely would have been able to unscramble his first name during a challenge.)

What do you think of the possibility of Flight Time being on "DWTS"? Would you watch him on the show? Which pro dancer would you like to see him paired up with?
