He is hot. I would give him extra points just for that.

He always looks like he enjoys what he is doing on the ice.

When asked about his programs...
"It's going to be something very similar to what I did a couple of years ago for my short program "I Love Paris" and it's going to be very elegant and a little sexy, like my coaches would, like they say."
About the Olympics....
"Of course, it's a dream. We're going to try. Hopefully. It's all I can say. Hopefully it happens because I think it's a dream for all athletes in all sports to have an Olympic medal."
Not clear what he's talking about here:
"Well, that's a challenge I don't think about yet. It's too soon. For now, all I want to do is keep working, keep competing well. I want to get more titles, more medals."
When asked about his favorite program:
"I would say the Charlie Chaplin program. It's a program I like very much and people got excited about it. I would pick that one."

I like Javier in Charlie Chaplin. It suits his 'happy cheerful' personality.
"And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye" in The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I think if Javier can win the European title prior to the Olympics and skate cleanly in the Olympics, he can beat Patrick Chan.
Javier reminds me so much of Brian Orser. They are even the same height (5'3") and body type, and now Orser is the coach. I hope Orser does not teach Javier to have a scary 3flip and unreliable 3loop like Orser had when he competed.
I am rooting for Javier this season. He can win every competition if all goes well for him.
I will be rooting for him because he is a joy to watch.

If you go to an event where Javi is at PLEASE take lots of pictures (good ones!), take LOTS of video footage of him everywhere you see him. That includes: Practices, Warm-ups, Exhibition practices, Gala practices, everything! I'm sorry if I come off as greedy, but I for one, REALLY get a kick out of seeing Javi outside of actually performing. Especially at gala practices. It's fun seeing who he interacts with and playing around.
P.S. (I'm going to copy-pasta this in D/W's thread and Dai's too, so don't report this as spam.)
hehe. I'm right there with ya, Jiazumi. Please people!

His adorable silent acting performance in the ShibSibs video "Wish You Were Real" from TheICE 2013 tour.
Love seeing the friendship amongst the skaters, and the gentle creativity of this "short film" is a delight.
Livejournal group for Javi in Russian, but you can see lots of photos and videos
I'm still mad at The Ice for not showing Javi's Charlie Chaplin program!
There is an exclusive club of people who have performed the "water bucket splasher" role. Kurt Browning during Stars on Ice and Alex Shibutani during theICE.
First to be Last whee!!!!

Lol "I wish you were real" was pretty funny. Javi has another bright career ahead in silent film :-)
How can anyone *hate* Javi? He's SO charming & talented!
