Okay, now for the Olympic Champion SURVIVOR!

The rules are: vote for the weakest link. For the first three rounds, we'll eliminate the bottom two. After that, one at a time. Other than that, there are no rules.

Although Nepela was :yawn: to watch, at least he never engaged in human trafficking.

Schwarz, on the other hand.... :lynch:

Schwartz, IMO, should be kicked off alone. No one whose "weakness" is in their skating should be grouped with someone whose "weakness" (as shown by the trafficking) is a lack of humanity.

Lysacek with more votes than Schwarz or anyone else? Seriously?

BTW, are you folks old enough to remember back into the Twentieth Century?

Do his activities (human traficking or otherwise) have anyting to do with how well he skated?

No, but I would guess the criteria "vote for the weakest link" can be interpreted however one wishes, skating or otherwise.

I think it's a combination of that and people not having seen his skating. If the human trafficking thing is literally the only thing people know about him, it's a no-brainer. Others have done objectionable things (DUI, which is definitely not as serious as human trafficking), but people have good memories of their skating at least. People are unlikely to even bother to look up his skating when he's done something so abhorrent.

:rofl: that Lysacek has so many votes already.

Some things will never be objective on FSU.

I had never heard of Schwarz, what a dick...
Voted for Lysacek though because I've never been so bored watching skating.
