    Smile Fun "Orange Team Interviews" with 2011 TEB competitors

    Looks like the "Orange Team" are a lively group of Spanish fans -- each skater picks 6 questions from different color categories and are awarded points.

    Hahah, such great interviews. It's interesting to see how a lot of the skaters are so competitive, so they tended to only choose the red questions so they would get more points. C/L story about Italian Nationals was so funny.

    Hearing about Adam's thoughts about 4CC last year though made me feel a little ... and also a little stupid, because I went to say hi to him at the competition, and suddenly couldn't think of anything to say, and so I said how I was so sorry that he didn't make it on the podium. He nodded politely, but...

    Oh well.

    What's the difference between the different colours?

    Love Patrick's interview. How can anyone say he is a cocky kid? Also V/M's question about if they ever think they were robbed... MAN the initial pondering moment was tense, I almost thought they will say "yeah..."

    Girls did an amazing job! All look so funny, so relaxed
    We need to give them media acreditation next time - there interviews look better, then all professional journalist made after TEB

    The red cards (the hardest) had a "base value" of 5 points, 3 points for the yellow cards and 1 point for the green cards. We had 6 cards of each color and the skaters had to pick 6 questions, it was their choice if they wanted to get more points or just answer easier questions.

    We were quite surprised the most of them chose the red questions. They were so competitive

    We have the Spanish Team questions subtitled in English:

    Adria Diaz: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcwRHPP8Tk0
    Sonia Lafuente's one is uploading.

    Also we have another one in the making. Jeremy Abbott knew about the game and wanted to answer the questions but we didn't see him on Sunday morning before the gala, when we made the game. He apologized on our Facebook group and told us he still wanted to do it if it was possible. We're gonna try a Skype interview whenever he has the free time. Here's his sweet message:

    Just saw V/M -- so cute! They are really funny. Love how Scott said "Malaguena" without even having to think about it.
