I have no idea whether this site would have up-to-date/accurate information, but FWIW as an unconfirmed example, a random listing for Lysacek says, "Appearance Booking Fee Range: $10,000-$20,000."
This site presumably is quoting fees to speak/appear before general audiences (for example, a corporate group that has nothing to do with skating) -- so compared to many other American skaters, Lysacek would have an advantage with his name recognition as reigning Olympic champion. (Kim obviously is in a stratosphere of her own.)
