Kym Johnson has the right idea when it comes to the Mayans’ predicted 2012 apocalypse. Where else would you want to be in the moments leading up to the End of Time Forever and Ever, than on a sunny beach?

When the Chicago Tribune asked the Dancing With the Stars pro where she wants to be in those moments, Kym replied, “If the world were ending, I would want to be in Sydney, Australia, my hometown. I couldn't think of anywhere better to be, with my friends and family at the beach!"

With such an upbeat attitude about the whole thing, the end of time doesn’t sound so shabby now, does it? Another DWTS alum, Season 12 contestant and radio personality Mike Catherwood, replied in a much more serious way: “The first place I was thinking is the walled Old City of Jerusalem. Heaven will quickly be losing vacancy so I want to go where Jesus was killed, buried and resurrected himself. I figure I'd get more of an inside track to God's ear while inside the Old City. If not Jerusalem, then Vegas. The world's over so let's throw caution to the wind."

Despite the emotional weight of the Mayans’ prophecy, we think we’d hang out with Kym in Sydney over Mike’s choices. What better last earthly image to have than Kym’s smiley, sunny face? Well, maybe Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s...
