    Skating With Celebrities!

    I have got to watch this show that starts tonight. In the previews it looks like blood and guts out there.

    Former teen idol singer Debbie Gibson is one, along with David Coulier of Full House, Todd Bridges of Different Strokes, etc.

    The pairings:

    Nancy Kerrigan and Dave Coulier
    Jenni Meno and Todd Bridges
    Tai Babilonia and Bruce Jenner
    John Zimmerman and Jillian Barberie
    Kurt Browning and Deborah Gibson
    Lloyd Eisler and Kristy Swanson

    I believe that Sasha Cohen is also supposed to be on the Tonight Show this evening.

    The smart money has to be on either Zimmerman or Eisler. Judging from the previews that they have been showing, if you can avoid dropping the lady on her head, you will probably win.

    SPOILER













    The judges:
    John Nicks (plays the Simon Cowell role)
    Dorothy Hamill
    Mark Lund

    Choreographers that were shown rRndy Gardner and Michael Siebbert

    have been working on this for four weeks.

    Theme: Music from the movies
    Skill: spin with at least 3 revolutions can be pairs or single spin
    Scoring: tech and Artistiv scores on 10.0

    Kurt and Deborah
    "How Do You Like Your Eggs In the Morning?" I have NEVER heard of this song
    Best acting skills of all the pairs. Kurt was at a disadvantage as mainly a singles skater. Cute routine mostly foorwork with a spin.

    Score:23.8 24.2 T.48.0


    Tai and Bruce
    "Up Where We Belong"
    Tai is still so gorgeous! Unison good. Simple lift and spins. Two waltz jumps

    Score: 24.3 24.5 T.46.8

    Lloyd and Kristy
    "The Air That I Breathe"
    One is left handed and the other right. They spin in opposite directions but it looked kind of cool. She bobbled the spiral a little. He lifted her on his back. I liked them! She had nice positions.

    Judges c/o lack of a connection between them and more energy (it was a very slow song)

    Score: 23.8 23.7 T. 47.5


    Jenni and Todd
    "Wild Wild West"
    Lots of joking from the two male judges about Jenni's lack of dance skills. Several dance sections pretty good rythym. Todds spin very uncentered he's very stiff. A throw single jump.
    Score:23.3 24.4 T.47.4


    Johnny Z and Jillian
    "The Trouble With Love"
    D*** John Zimmerman is fine! John Nicks would have looked good skating with him, LOL I love this song. She skated as a child and teen.
    Jillian was really pushing herself in practice.. She also holds her position well and her extension matches his on spiral. Geat spin. A couple twizzles. Simple lifts. Excellent!

    Judges loved them.

    Score: 25.8 26.0 T.51.8

    Nancy and Dave
    "Soul Man"
    He plays hockey. Toepic! He ground them down, LOL. Very simple choreography. Nancy did a jump and a cartwheel. Judges loved it.? I think the great music carrid this one..good audience response.

    Score: 24.4 24.9 49.3 Overmarked IMO

    John/Jillian 51.8
    Nancy/Dave 49.3
    Tai/Bruce 48.8
    Kurt/Deborah 48.0
    Jenni/Todd47.7
    Lloyd/Kristy 47.5

    I would have had them
    John/Jillian
    Lloyd/Kristy
    Tai/Bruce
    Kurt/Deborah
    Jenni/Todd
    Nancy/Dave

    Will be combined with next weeks scores and the pair with the lowest will go home. Next week all new costumes, music and routines.

    Entertaining, I'll keep watching. John Nicks got lots of boos because of his comments ala Simon. It must be a British thing, LOL. If I were Sasha I would want my coach helping me train instead of doing this. I hope people won't trasfer their dislike for Nicks to Sasha. Dorothy Hamill looks great. Mark Lund seems like a nice guy.

    I'm pretty sure this show is taped since I can't imagine Scott Hamilton coming back from Torino to host the show.

    Kurt was probably at the greatest disadvantage since he was the only male professional skater without pairs experience. Nancy used to skate pairs before singles.

    I thought all the routines were in good fun. It is pretty unfair in sense because some of the celebrities have more skating experience than others.

    Didn't John Nicks coach Jenni and Todd (Sands - I just realized that bother her partners are Todd's)? Will he be overcritical as her former coach or express some favoritism?

    BTW, only this show airs against Lost. It's regular time slot is on Monday's.

    It was really fun watching this, but I thinks it's a bit unfair that Dave and Jillian both have prior skating experience. I think all the celebs should be starting from ground zero.

    Other than that one complaint, it was fun, and I'll tune in next week.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid. Who thought this up? I thought Kurt and his partner had the best choreography. Of course, Kurt could make anyone look good. Also, Lloyd was at a real disadvantange with his partner not having any experience - at least they looked like a pair. He presented her well. I can't believe the judges - going nuts for Bruce Jenner - he could barely stand up on his skates. Of course, Zimmerman is the most fortunate of the bunch as his partner obviously has taken figure skating lessons at some point in her life. Don't know if I will tune in again, but knowing me I will. I can't take this thing too seriously. I know it is all in fun. The skaters are good sports for taking a risk with newbies.

    I think Nicks is right - Dorothy does need to wear her specs next time!!

    I thought Bruce Jenner skated really well. Does anyone know how old Bruce is now? I'd be willing to bet that he's had some work done to his face, it looks kind of "tight."

    Skating With Celebrities Dubious

    I had great expectations for this show but based on the placement of
    Lloyd and Kristy in last place it appears the fix is in.

    By putting this great performance last, the panel of John Nicks, Dorothy Hamill and Mark Lund have shown their bias. At least two of the teams Todd and Jenni and Dave and Nancy are suspect. Todd and Jenni did the usual shake your booty program which was not impressive. And Dave shame on you for filing of your toe pics you should be disqualified. Any hockey jock could have done what you did!

    John and Jillian were obvious firsts but second spot and fifth indicate that the judges fudged the presentation mark!

    In an Olympic year full of controversy, I am not interested in witnessing any more degradation of the sport by watching this tripe. Light, mindless, fluffy entertainment it is skating it is not!

    I had fun watching this show. I actually got a big kick out of it. Hey, listen, we are in the age of crazy TV shows. Just take it as it is pure fluff entertainment and have fun with it. The important competition is coming up in February. Can't wait for that one!
