Newly single Dancing With the Stars winner Helio Castroneves could be the ideal man for Spice Girl Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell — if only he were a little taller.

The 32-year-old racing champ boogied his way to a surprise victory on the hit ABC show last month, when he beat out favorite Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown for the title. Just a day later, it was announced that Helio and his fiancée, Ali Vasquez, had gone their separate ways.

And when OK! asked Mel B and her fellow Spices who Geri should date, they were more than happy to recommend the Brazilian heartthrob. But the sassy 35-year-old singer tells OK! she has different ideas. “I’m sorry, but I like tall men,” Ginger explained at a press conference to promote the Girls’ current reunion tour. “I have to think about genetics! I know what people will think that’s rich coming from me, because I’m only 5’2", but I’m a small girl and I need a tall man!”
