'SYTYCD's' Lauren likes 'Dancing's' Pamela Anderson, 'Idol's' Crystal Bowersox

lauren-gottlieb-320.jpg "So You Think You Can Dance" all-star Lauren Gottlieb knows her reality competition shows.

The Season 3 contestant, who returns to partner up with the Season 7 dancers, likes to check out the competition, including ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."

"It's my guilty pleasure," Gottlieb told Zap2it. "I have to watch everything dance [on TV]."

Even though she specializes in the hip-hop/jazz/contemporary genres, she's gotten pulled into the ballroom dance drama. Her favorite celeb on the show may be in danger of going home Tuesday (May 4) though.

"To be honest, this season I like Pamela Anderson," admitted Gottlieb. "I haven't seen her much through the years, but she just comes out and she's adorable out-of-her-mind sexy. But she's such a creature, like when she just stands up there with the cameras, how she does her little movements and stuff. I'm just like, I don't know. She's just unreal."

As for that other huge FOX show "American Idol," Gottlieb has caught enough to have joined the Mamasox bandwagon.

"I started watching the auditions. I think blond girl with the dreads is still in, right?" said Gottlieb. "Yes, Crystal Bowersox. She was my favorite from the auditions."

"SYTYCD" airs its two-hour seventh season premiere on Thursday, May 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.

Check back for more from Lauren Gottlieb's interview with Zap2it, including her experience dancing on "Glee" for rival show choir Vocal Adrenaline.
