It's only been three weeks since Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek placed second behind winner Nicole Scherzinger on Dancing with the Stars, but the skater says he's still dancing in his dreams.

"I dream that I have to go out and dance but I forgot to learn the routine," Lysacek told PEOPLE at his 24 Hour Fitness and Coke Workout Sweepstakes event in New York recently. "I've had that dream two or three times ... The music starts and I'm like, 'Oh no! We didn't have time to learn it.' Then I would wake up and realize it was a dream."

Despite the occasional nightmare, Lysacek, 25, looks back fondly on his DWTS experience, calling it "remarkable." He's cherishing the memories as much as the new friends he made on the show. "I've kept in really close touch with the entire cast," he says. "The I met were the best thing I took from being on the show. We all walked away with a new family."

And that includes Kate Gosselin, with whom he says he's in constant communication. "Kate is in New York right now. We've been texting each other back and forth and we're trying to get together," he says. "We are very close. She is the sweetest woman in the world. We were instantly friends and everyone really loved her on the show. We missed her so much when she left. She's hilarious and she's always joking around. I don't think she ever said a serious sentence."

Want to hear Kate Gosselin scream in terror?

Well, she does just that when she and her eight kids face an alligator in the Florida Everglades. Gosselin took her children to the Sunshine State to celebrate the sextuplets sixth birthday. The surprise trip was documented for TLC's two-hour special, Kate Plus 8, which marks the return of the Gosselin brood to TV since Jon & Kate Plus 8 went off the air last year.

What else is in store for Kate and the kids on Sunday's show? More close encounters with creatures – they'll feed sting rays and exotic birds and swim with dolphins – as well as some tasty treats. They'll participate in an orange juice squeezing contest and eat birthday cake, of course!

Kate Plus 8 airs Sunday (9 p.m. EST) on TLC.
