Cheryl Burke thinks Caitlyn Jenner would make a great Miss USA judge.

The 31-year-old professional dancer said as much in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. Burke, Thomas Roberts and Jeannie Mai will co-host the annual pageant, with Jenner rumored to serve on the judges panel.

"I think Caitlyn Jenner would be an amazing judge," she said of the 65-year-old Olympic medalist and reality star, who recently revealed she is transgender and made her public debut as a woman. "I think she's so empowering. A lot of people look up to her."

"Because I have been bullied and attacked about my body, body image has always been an issue for me," she shared. "You have to embrace your body, whether it's curvy or whatever you may be. You have to embrace who you are. Beauty comes from the inside not out."

The 2015 Miss USA pageant will air July 12 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC, but not broadcast on Univision as scheduled. The Spanish-language channel canceled its planned telecast this week due to Miss USA co-owner Donald Trump's recent comments on Mexico.

Burke is best known for her work on Dancing with the Stars, and said Jenner would also be well-suited for the ABC reality competition. The dancer suggested the reality star would "look great" with fellow pros Tony Dovolani or Val Chmerkovskiy.
