  1. Hi all! I have an AWESOME tip for you! I found a website that is offering limited amount of Starbucks gift cards OR money in exchange for ur opinions on different brands. If you wish to learn more about how the whole deal works then head over to https://sites.google.com/site/devianopz/?id=nqu and sign up before they have enough users!! I hope u have an awesome day.

  2. Why did you leave out the ice dance teams??? They are the strongest skating discipline for the USA and deserved recognition!!

  3. Hello we have three of the top ice dance teams in the world going to the Olympics. Thanks for mentioning them!

  4. Ummmmm ice dance hello? Also Tara, Nathan is not "the face of skating", hes wonderful but like hes one of the younger skaters? And what about the other disciplines like womens skating and pairs and ice dance, he cant be the face for allllll of those! Like ik hes r like most consistent male skater but hes not the "face of figure skating" thats just dumb. What about the other countries, or how about some ladies??? Im just realllllllllly annoyed lol

  5. Rippon is in the team with the 4th place (just like Ashley 4 years ago).
    Now they excluded Ross Miner who won the silver medal.

  6. How interesting…so many AsianAmerican's on our USA team…in fact, I watched the woman's skating and there were at least 8…we have had wonderful champions..Kristi Yamaguchi…and MIchelle Kwan..really hope our President gets to congratulate them all.

  7. To all of those complaining about ice dancers being left out, this was filmed before the ice dance long program took place, so the remaining members of the olympic team were yet to be announced

  8. The OLYMPICS is about more than technical points, it's about the intangibles that apply to be a champion. Look to the Russians for that, and they will be there, without THEM, there's no glory.

  9. Here's my problem though- I just really don't see what Chen has over Wagner. Mirai has brought her A-game, Bradie (whilst lacking any artistry imo) is the queen of technicals, but Karen Chen is unmemorable to me. I watched a video on how the judges lowballed Ashley on her scores, and to me it's all a very Harding situation. She's not a pretty little Cinderella princess; she's a kickass warrior and the judges don't like that.

  10. It's so annoying that Shibsibs get all the hype because of their social media presence and the other two equally amazing ice dance American pairs are given so much less credit πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘

  11. So let me get this. IF I PLACE 4TH THEN I GET TO GO TO THE OLYMPICS? Then why have a national championships. I mean if u break at the championship then you gonna be breaking at the Olympics. Oh America.

  12. To me, Wagner seems entitled. She only made the Olympic team last time by leap-frogging Negasu–quite unfairly, imo. Does she expect that to happen again with Chen? In the words of Alyssa Edwards, "Don't be bitter; just get better."

  13. Anyone else think it's strange that people are making such a big deal about who is going to the Olympics for woman? Like I understand Ashley's frustration, but so many fans are out for blood for some reason…
    Let's be real, the fight for the podium is between Russia and Japan. The Americans on a perfect day could maybe get a bronze…

  14. Ashley’s entitled to feel however she will, and it is a tragedy if points were withheld from her (as I’m reading), but I’m still not Sotnikova β€œplacing” over Yuna Kim. πŸ’”

  15. My Beloved Ashley…😫😩😫😩😩😩😭😭😭
    You are still the BEST and Biggest Star 🌟 of present figure skating β›Έ, no matter what!!!!! And For us your fans you are already an Olympic champion!!!!!πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ₯‡πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

  16. Tara Lipinski is so annoying in the booth commentsting! Why couldn't they get Michelle Kwan or Kristi Yamaguchi to do the Olympics??
