I'm clueless on the Marinaro guy. I vaguely remember he and Margaret and thinking , oh, she better shrink or he better grow if they're going to continue pairs. The shrinking doesn't work but I can't remember how tall he is. I think Kristen is about 5 feet so she has some choices with the 5'8" and above. But I get the need to have a guy who can throw you up or out with some pizzaz. So even an under 6 foot guy might work if he has the musculature to do that. It would be great for Kristen have a guy who could relate to her on the ice. She exudes personality on the ice and a guy who can compliment that would be great. I look forward to seeing her progress.
