    I think so--but the judges have just been happy this year if the teams can actually do the steps of the TR with reasonable timing. There have been no more than 2, maybe 3 couples each event actually doing it more or less correctly at the 3 events where I have seen it skated. Nebelhorn there were D&W and a big gap to Zaretskis. At COR, D&W and a long way back to C&L and R&S. At NHK, D&W and K&K (who said they just hadn't practiced the TR that much). If you look at D&W's CD scores (esp. the PCS), they are not up to their OD & FD scores...so yes, the judges have been withholding marks for authenticity/non authenticity and other errors, but it isn't showing, because the other teams at NHK and CoR were having basic problems with the steps and the timing. D&W did get a bit of tango feel, too, but I don't think they got it right, and AFAIR, they did not have that crisp almost syncopated sharpness of Pakhomova and Linichuk.

    The Hubbells made the second group over Weaver and Poje. Where did they accumulate the points?

    I think they accumulated more points from last year's JGP, JGP final and then Jr Worlds. Could be wrong though. I also thought it was interesting that Kevin van der Perren is skating after Patrick Chan. Just another piece of evidence that the ISU's World Standing is a huge crock.

    Good question. I'm going to put a topic on The Edge for feedback on the Skating Order.

    Warm-Up Group 1

    Andrea CHONG / Guillaume GFELLER CAN
    dark shiny gray lightweight skirt that does not move well at all and exposes undies at inopportune times
    deep vee neckline
    black gold gloves on her
    black pants, white shirt grey op-art diamond pattern vest

    legs not kicking up at same time
    a bit too close to boards once
    timing not great
    skirt movement very distracting
    awkward move during the close

    Score 24.27

    Carolina HERMANN / Daniel HERMANN GER

    Black pants white shirt black vest and red pocket square
    bright red backless dress with a triangular skirt with a strange white splotch on her butt with a stripe leading from it to the hemline

    hard to explain. This is very roller-rink in feeling rather than tango of any sort. Skated very smooth instead of sharp and crisp. Rather slow. Better than last couple.

    Score 25.29


    Ekaterina BOBROVA / Dmitri SOLOVIEV RUS
    backless black dress with spaghetti straps and red string trim on bodice. Lots of necklaces and dog collar look.
    he's all in black

    They are sharper, faster and getting some tango feel going than the previous 2 teams. Deeper edges. Some two footed looking ness in a couple spots where I don't think there were supposed to be? Probably to deal with the small rink problem.

    Score: 30.09


    Kaitlyn WEAVER / Andrew POJE CAN
    vertical stripe black/gray pants white shirt & gray/black stripe vest
    slightly darker red backless with net over it, one armed dress with black lace insets and one elbow fake glove on opposite side. tasty black leaves on one shoulder
    Required red rose in her blonde hair

    On the whole, very nice, AFA I could tell. Could have been faster and had deeper edges, but really pretty good.

    She says, "We did it!!!"

    Score: 32.18 They are thrilled. Crowd goes wild.
    Coach says, "Fantastic"
    Kaitlyn giggles.

    Into first place.

    I'm a new P/B fan. They're so chic and intense. V/M need a new designer. Hell, were they that much better?

    Warm-Up Group 2

    Madison HUBBELL / Keiffer HUBBELL USA
    Black dress high neck in front, bit bite out of the back, long sleeves, red bow/flower at back of short blonde hair
    bodice is black lace
    He looks John Denverish somehow. Red shirt black vest, pants. Could be the mullet.

    It might be just me, but their timing seemed off in first iteration, particularly.
    Legline slightly off now and then.

    I'd have W&P ahead of them by quite a bit.

    Score: 27.14 into third behind Bobrova

    Nathalie PECHALAT / Fabian BOURZAT FRA
    Very odd op artish brown and white pattern dress with matching hand band Log cabin quiltish. strappy crisscrosses in the back.
    He is doing the rather seedy look somehow. His tie is in her skirt material. Stripe pants (dark) red cuffs and black jacket with lining in red

    Much faster, and some impressive edges. Intermittently as sharp as it should be, but really good. Closer together than any previous couple, too. Should score well, I think

    Score: 35.55 (SB)

    Emily SAMUELSON / Evan BATES USA
    Her hair has a 3 inch zigzag in the part.
    Evan in red sparkly shirt, black sparkly striped vest and pants
    Emily in a Charlestony looking dress in spangled purple with red fringes. High neckline, Backless with long sleeves.

    Like Bobrova, there's some two footed bits. Not sharp. Nice legline as always, though. But that's where I'd score it. Behind W&P.

    Score: 31.47 SB in 3rd place, behind W&P

    Tessa VIRTUE / Scott MOIR CAN

    Scott in black v necked jump suit
    Tessa in very long red dress, sleeveless, v neck line, quite plain

    My impression is that they can do this dance better than they just did it. Close together, good speed and edges, but not as crisp as I know they could do it. Visible adjustments to the rink size, I think. The odd bit of snow kicked up.

    Score: 40.69.

    I would probably have had it about 38, but what do I know. Significantly better score than anyone has had in a CD this year.
