Skating with Celebrities so far

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 30th 2006 2:32PM
Now that I can finally watch more than one channel at a time, I decided to start watching Skating with Celebrities. Why, you ask? Sick fascination, I guess. It's like Dancing with the Stars with an added element of danger. And facial mutilation.

Here's what you need to know about the show, if you're joining me in adding this show to your viewing schedule:

1. The celebrities and their professional skating partners:

Dave Coulier (Full House) and Nancy Kerrigan;
Bruce Jenner (Olympic deathlete) and Tai Babilonia;
Todd Bridges (Diff'rent Strokes) and Jenni Meno;
Kristy Swanson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Lloyd Eisler;
Deborah Gibson (singer) and Kurt Browning;
Jillian Barberie (NFL Fox Sunday) and John Zimmerman.

2. Hosts: Scott Hamilton (former Olympic skater) and Summer Sanders (former Olympic swimmer).

3. Judges: Dorothy Hamill (former professional skater), Sir John Nicks (skating coach), Mark Lund (founder of Int'l Figure Skating Magazine)

4. Competition: Skaters make up routines to their choice of music that fits in a weekly theme. The theme for week one was 'Movies' and week two was '70s'. Each week, their routines must include certain technical elements, which get tougher as the competition goes on. Sadly, the competitors are not judged by viewers, but solely by the celebrity judges. The team with the lowest score each week gets the boot.

5. So far, Todd Bridges and Jenni Meno have been booted from the competition. Tonight's episode will boot another team off the show. And, from what I read, the critics really hate Dave Coulier and his bad attitude. Plus, Jillian Barberie totally has an advantage over the other celebrity competitors because she once trained as a skater. What's that all about?
