    I picked Dick Button. Second choice would be Johnny. Or maybe first choice should have been Johnny. I am not really a fan, but I would like it to be with an interesting person with interesting stories and willing to have goofy fun. Might as well spend my time entertained!

    Too bad Harding isn't listed. She could fix the plane's engine and get us the f*** out of there.

    First choice would be Scott Moir, but he isn't on the list so probably Dick Button since he'd have the funniest stories to keep me entertained.

    Chan, he'd keep things interesting without getting TOO annoying, like another male skater on that list probably would.

    Plushenko.

    Because he's a tough son of a b*tch and wouldn't give up until we got rescued or off the island by other means!

    Joubert would be a good choice too. (Although I'd still rather have Scott since I think he would be more entertaining to be around)

    Ensemble of Scott and Patrick would be the closer on entertaining category!

    Well, if there were...other ;)...reasons, I would have chosen accordingly.

    Sorry Plushy, but if there's one list you're NOT at the top of anymore...it's my sexy list. :D

    I voted Katarina because I'm sure I'd learn a lot of interesting things from her about figure skating and politics in the 80's.:cool:

    The least likely person I'd like to be on a deserted island would be Annette Brashlouw.

    She'd spend ten minutes on how she found somebody to sharpen her skates, then she'd run out of interesting conversation.

    Definitely Dick Button. For one thing we are of the same generation & our conversations could go way back not just about skating but on other subjects as well. I'd love to pick his brain tho on skating scandals. Second choice: Johnny Weir. Articulate, intelligent, with a great sense of humor.

    Johnny! We'd have interesting and amusing conversations, and he'd let me have most of the food. If there was a second choice, it would go to Dick Button. A living legend and he's seen it all and he'd probably be up to a tell all! :)

    I've been looking around here for ages, then I got an account, this is my first post. Hello!

    I'd give anything for Patrick, I'm sure he would be an absolute blast to be around.
