She has an extremely annoying voice and finds it very hard to express herself. Definitely should NOT be a tv commentator. Please don't tell me she's going to stick around for the men also...
Good luck to all the skaters and let's hope for a well judged event
You are killing my mood but on the other hand it's good I don't have my hopes high

Marissa CASTELLI / Simon SHNAPIR (USA)
Music: Payadora by Julian Plaza
3Tw - arm on his shoulder
3T - ok, he hangs on a bit
2ATh - big
FCCoSp - unison off
2A+2T - she singled 2T
3STh - also big, bit forward
Solid skate, there were some smaller mistakes. They seem satisfied.
FS: 56.96 + 51.36 = 108.32
Tot: 164.00, in 1st (out of 1)
They seem reserved and a bit disappointed with the score.
Marissa and Simon had a wonderful program despite a problem in the double axel-double toe combo (she singled the last jump)
It's sadly true, they can make as many mistakes as they want and have a not well-choreographed program, and they can still score around 140...

Zero passion, almost no relating. He's got as much personality as a lawn chair. She's got some real charm but I think they're totally a mismatched pair.
Because of that pesky thing called work I don't think I'm gonna be able to watch much of the first 2 groups. Keep me updated okay
Mari VARTMANN / Aaron VAN CLEAVE (GER)
Music: Passion of the Christ (soundtrack); Blood and Glory by Audiomachine
... small wobble on connecting steps...
3T+1T - he fell on 3T
3S - she doubled
3LoTh - hard fall, slid into boards
FCCoSp - far apart, unison off at end
3STh - landed, then falls
Very shaky skate. They seemed tentative and had to push through every element. She is shaking her head.
FS: 44.30 + 44.46 - 3.00 = 85.76
Tot: 133.12, in 2nd (out of 2)
She is crying a bit in K'n'C
