    That would be Madison Hubbell, I think.

    Not sure if the Samuelson/Bates Chock/Zuerlein thread has been shifted elsewhere, but Evan and Madison did a Skype interview on Universal Sports about 2 weeks ago re: what happened and how they're doing now:

    http://www.universalsports.com/vide...190ef.html#skype chock bates talk partnership

    Very rough recap:

    It was a long and tough recovery (9 months) for Evan, and when he finally did get back on the ice, it was a frustrating process for him and Emily, and for one reason or another it just wasn't working out.

    Madison knew Greg wasn't enjoying skating as much as he had been -- they'd talked about it before -- and so after Worlds when he announced he wanted to retire, it didn't come as a shock. They're still friends, still keep in touch. She didn't know what she would do afterwards, had some tryouts, was going to take it slow, but then Evan was also looking for a partner.

    They had a tryout, and are now looking for music! They want to be ready to compete in the fall if possible.

    ^ I don't know which one of these stories is worse...Samuleson/Bates/Chock or Yankowskas/Coughlin/Denney. I will say John is being villified worse than Evan, why is that?

    No it doesn't. That's Sarah Arnold, at least according to the caption.

    Sorry...I meant in reference to the pyramid group picture, that there was a Gilles there, but not Piper...

    Zach Donohue consistently cracks me up in the pictures he poses for. It's very cologne-model chic, like he trying VERY HARD to look effortlessly sexy.

    I didn't know who he was, but your description made it easy to pick him out in a line-up. He and Andrew Poje look remarkably similar.

    Same! I'd always been a fan of Madison, and Zach caught my eye while he was skating with Piper- When I saw the picture of them on icenetwork, it looked totally natural; they just look like they belong skating together. A very good looking team, and I can't wait for Lake Placid footage! (hopefully lol)

    I was a bigger fan of the Hubbells than I ever was of the Shibutanis (who I do actually like), so I can't wait to see how this new partnership works!

    Agreed. Check out icenetwork's front page and you'll see another demonstration of just how much they resemble each other.

    :)They look great together ..best of luck to them.

    And yoo-hoo , Pasquale, Massimo , Anjelika..and maybe Shae.. how about a character show piece featuring those 2 tall dark men and 2 smashing blondes...sort of a comedy of mistaken identity a la Midsummer's Night Dream..They'd all look good in the costumes from the era of Frederick Ashton's "The Dream ' ( or costumes of any era ,for that matter )...I'll be waiting...:D

    Are Chock/Bates competing anywhere this summer/fall? I thought it was strange that they didn't show up at Lake Placid or Skate Detroit, even if that meant showing up with very rough programs. I'm assuming we won't see them on the GP.

    Chock/Bates are scheduled to debut their programs on the Onyx Challenge in Rochester, Michigan next week. Their free dance is set to a jazzy version of "Chopin's Prelude in e minor," according to the recent Icenetwork article on the Canton dance teams. Bates also mentioned in the article that they are hoping for a Senior B assignment and to be considered for the TBA spot at Skate America.
