    Alexa Scimeca & Chris Knierim

    I was fairly surprised when I saw that Alexa and Chris did not have a fan fest as they are probably the most famous American pair right now! I've really grown to like them this season (mostly due to the fact that I saw them in person-the first quad twist at nationals!-and met them), and, as honorary members of the world top 10, they need a fan fest, so here it is!

    Usually i dont watch pairs , but their sp was GORGEOUS. especially the music and the fact that they feel it sooo much. Plus they have good chemistry. 😍 about the quad , it was in the fs?? Do other pairs perform quads too??

    Yes, other pairs do them, but they were the first American pair to do one. It was in the FS (not allowed in the SP).

    I do not follow pairs either, but I love Alexa's personality shines through, so I also like watching them. Plus anyone who loves cats as much as Alexa does deserves a fan thread.

    Yes. Yes, this must be so.

    (LOL, actually probably just Alexa as Chris said in a video he was more of a dog person, but she is enough to cover both! One look at her cat-filled social media pages is enough to confirm that!)

    He put a costume on the cat to propose to her with, that means he gets along with the cat well enough to put a costume on the cat. Ever try that? He is more of a cat person than he admits.

    I have indeed not attempted to dress a cat (I actually have never had a cat), so that would explain my lack of knowledge. 😃

    Now *that's* love!

    Also like that Alexa and Chris were among the first to tweet good wishes to Sammi Cesario. Classy! Does anyone know if they trained together?

    No. Alexa and Chris train in Colorado Springs with Dalilah Sappenfield. Sammi trains in New York with Mary Lynn Geldermann. They may know each other, though.

    They have announced their new music for next season.

    The SP is going to be by Metallica - Nothing Else Matters
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAGnKpE4NCI


    Not sure if it will be with lyrics but I am guessing so, because they mention the lyrics as what is meaningful to them from the song.

    Their FS will be from Elizabeth: The Golden Age but with multiple tracks.

    More can be found here.

    Thank you Thank you Layback11. I love this team and was really sad they did not have a Fanfest either:(. I have found this forum is less supportive of this team for some reason and more supportive of others but I guess that happens. They set several national records this year it is so exciting!! For US pairs hold the highest scores ever earned! They are amazing people, not the typical skater with rich families so I have read. They have only three seasons together that is incredible and with injuries it is amazing what they have accomplished! They work hard both graduated school this year too! In a relationship so staying together engaged. They should have our full support but it often seems they don't get it? Maybe it is me?? I so respect that! Helping to really win WTT so exciting who would have expected!! It is time the US supports them! I was disappointed to see that they were not really highlighted as the other team at World's either even though they scored higher in the US highlight video of World's. They placed higher and again another record for the US with the Quad twist at Worlds and a good one. I find them exciting and really cool people!! I relate I guess as a young person having to work hard and support myself. So much success Doing this on their own basically so I respect that! Can't wait for their year ahead! Thanks again for starting this!!!
    It is exciting and they deserve much better!!
    I think it is cool they skate to Nothing else Matters. It speaks to their passion for the sport and each other and that haters don't matter! Their love of the sport and their own dreams do and that is all that matters. That is how I take it anyway. GO Alexa and Chris!!

    I don't know if it is lack of support so much as they kinda slipped through the cracks.

    For year they were Sappenfield's second team behind Denney/Coughlin, so they got less attention. Their first trip to worlds was when their training mates pulled out for injury, so they did not get the same attention as if they were named to the team at nationals. They were however the USA's highest ranked pair at that worlds.

    They also had injuries the Olympic season, so again they kinda were not on the radar.

    Come this season and they had to overcome the human interest factor of having two new pairs teams that had siblings of other skaters. In one corner they have Haven Denney, the sister of who they used to play second to, who is a former World Junior Champion. In the other corner, they have their other training mates, who again, is a sister (Maddie) of a current skater (Max Aaron). So they came into this season the highest ranked American's but also battling good stories for attention. Being engaged only does so much to get attention. Both other couples had some exciting potential to them.

    So in many ways they just had others that grabbed out attention more so. I don't think it was anything against them, just others got the attention.

    The thing that is interesting, is that they seemed to have figured this out, and came into Nationals ready to fight, ready to win, and ready to capture our attention.

    I think we will see some more support of them in the future. They are charming and likeable and pretty to look at. They also clearly are willing to do what it takes and take risks to get to the top. They said they were going to do the quad twist, they did. Now that they are not only number one, but the only couple in the USA with any quad, I think they will be given more love.

    I uploaded a full HD version of S/K's FS from WTT (commentary removed).
