Alicia Sacramone, remembered for her tears following two major mistakes during the Beijing Games gymnastics team finals that dropped the U.S. to second behind host China, is the second U.S. gymnast to say she'd like to be on "Dancing With The Stars."

Shawn Johnson, who won an Olympics balance beam gold medal, also mentioned DWTS as a goal.

Sacramone also said she would love to be a "Project Runway" judge. But until she gets her big reality television break, Sacramone will go back to being a sophomore at Brown University (which she chose over UCLA two years before making the Olympics team) after finishing up with the post-Olympics gymnastics tour.
