Definitely Yuzuru making the final. Especially after his 4th place finish in China and Asada coming back strong at NHK.

For me, it was way back in October when KVDP won silver at SKAM. Truly a shocker!

I was expecting that Gachinski, Amodio, and Mroz would be making their moves this year. Clearly not!

I expected Hanyu to do well. I didn't expect Song to do so well.

Thrilled Fernandez is getting top tier scores in TES and PCS!!!!

KVDP's silver at Skate America and Nan Song almost making the final were the biggest surprises.

...Nan Song almost making the final...


Nan Song definitely should have been in this poll instead of "Other". :o

Nan Song came to mind first for me, too. :)

Fernandez qualifying for the GPF, but in a good way. :)

Flatt ranking so low. Lower than Zhang ! Mroz's low ranking is also somewhat surprising.

The silver and bronze men medalists at last season's Worlds failing to qualify for the GPF.

KVDP winning silver an SKAM and Javier Fernandez making the GPF were probably the biggest surprises for me - very different but both very pleasant :) I also didn't expect Takahashi/Tran to make the GPF, and I don't know what to make of it - they were far from perfect at both events, but I like their programs this year.
Another shocker not included in the poll options was Nan Song's success, which is also a very pleasant surprise :)
Yay, the season has been mostly positive for me so far in terms of surprises :kickass:

Rachael finishing so low and Javier qualifying for the GPF.

Kozuka not making the GPF.

I am surprised anyone is surprised by Flatt. It seemed clear to me after last season she was finished, regardless if she chose to continue or not.
