    These two are auditioning for the Amazing Race! Check it out!

    I believe they're just going by views on youtube to narrow it down. These two would be hilarious!

    Darn, I thought this post was going to tell us they were on the show.

    That was a lot of fun, I hope that they were picked for the show.

    Oh man, that was funny! I sure hope they are chosen cause can you see the two of them competing WITH each other rather than AGAINST each other for a change. I do wonder how Craig's shoulder would hold out. They definitely get my vote :D

    that was super fun!

    I remember quite a few years ago US Pair skater Tiffany Scott auditioned with her (fiance? husband?) and their tape was great, but they didn't get chosen. I hope Craig and John have a better shot!

    That was great! Thanks for that -- and for the blast from the past. Nice to see two of my old favourites from the sport again.

    YouTube views as a selection process though? That doesn't seem right.

    ETA: just spotted that the "author" of the youtube vid was Jayson Denommee. Cool, another blast from the past!

    If these two are on it, I will definitely watch, they would be fantastic. Love the video - I miss Craig and John!

    Denommee "authored" that clip! Too funny. Couldn't you just picture the three of them goofing off doing this and having to do a number of retakes cause they're laughing it up so much.
    Sheesh I'd really like to see them make it.

    Just over 1,000 views in one day. Pretty good. :cheer2: But the other videos along the right side of the screen have views in the five figures.... :(

    So if I watch it multiple times will it count? And if it's Amazing Race Canada, do they just trot around our fair country?

    it was at 400 views this morning when I looked at it, so perhaps FSU will give them a push :saint:

    All these skaters going on these reality tv shows I don't watch but will watch because of them. I just added to the Youtube view count. Good luck to them!

    I refuse to watch the other videos but I just know those girls in those Leafs uniforms will annoy.

    Love John and Craig's video.

    This video is great also. Love the Blades of Glory reenactment. :rofl:

    Hope one of these teams make it.

    That was so much fun! I've shared it on Twitter, Tumblr and Google+. I think it'd be great if skating fans could push them on to the show!

    Good to see Jayson's name on this - he did say he wanted to make films - what a start!

    Any chance we should maybe put this in one of the other areas that pertain to figure skating specifically? I noticed a thread started in GSD but then they deleted the contents of their post. The more views the better!
