Last two seasons:And yes Amber finished 2nd over Karen. But it was less then two points! It was hardly a convincing beating. She also has by far (without question!) the weakest body of work of all the top 5 finishers. She's actually really lucky the USFSA made her the 1st alternate. They could have easily given her the Ross treatment and made Mariah the 1st alternate instead despite her 5th place.
Amber - Nats: 2nd and 5th, GPs: 5th, 6th and 7th, Challenger: 3rd
Karen - Nats: 3rd and 4th, GPs: 4th, 8th, and 9th, Challengers: 2nd and 4th
You think Amber's body of work is by far and without question weaker than Karen's? Their average Nationals and Challenger placements are identical, while Amber's average GP placement is 6th and Karen's is 7th. I really hope this had nothing to do with Amber coming out as bisexual and the USFSA frowning upon that.
