Kristi Yamaguchi won Season 6 of "Dancing with the Stars," but despite having a mirrorball in her cabinet, the skater isn't sure who will win the Season 15, "All-Stars" crown.

"It's [the] 'All-Stars' season and these last five are all incredible," the Olympic ice skating gold medalist told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Monday's Access Hollywood Live.

"Melissa [Rycroft], I think, has improved so much, just especially from her first season," Kristi, who came on Monday's show to reveal the latest pieces from her Tsu.ya fashion line, continued. "It's hard to say."

And while she couldn't narrow down the final five to just one winner, she added, "Of course, I'm always rooting for the athletes."

Kristi confirmed she was not asked to return for "Dancing with the Stars All-Stars," but she doesn't think she could have done the show anyway.

"It was a busy time for me," she said. "They have an amazing cast."

"I think I would have entertained the idea, but it was so hard," she said, referring to the competition. "It's a grind and I think you really have to be dedicated to put those 10 weeks aside, and [be] like, 'OK, I'm going for it."
