Oh, I get so nervous watching the competitions live... So I'm all for self-spoiling. Of course, if I have the chance to watch the competition live, I will, but I know it's gonna cost me a lot of nerves in the end. I get so excited that I start frantically jumping up and down (literally), the people in the flat below mine are not amused well, the jumping part concerns all the sports I watch.
But yeah, seeing my favourites perform live is really nerve-racking, so much so that sometimes I also switch the channel for a while or turn away. And even when the others are skating, it's not like I really dislike any skaters, so when I see someone fall I always flinch. I mean, they try their best and work hard all year, all of them deserve to skate to the best of their abilities, so when they fail it's always hearbreaking, especially if it's a favourite. Sooo... if there's a way to save myself the nerves and find out the results earlier — I'm in. Then at least if I know a skater skated badly, I can save myself from the excruciating experience of watching it.
