It was a „figure skating stand up comedian“, Ryan Thomas Thornton., an English guy living in Graz. I think he did the commentary up to 2019 (in 2017 he made drawings to show the scores, which was cute, the streams are still stored in his channel)

Why is there no Senior B at all in the US this year? Even when it wasn't part of the Challenger series it was still held in September.

You're forgetting Camden. We have Torgy and Camden both in an early season competition. My nerves are never going to survive this.
just wait - wanna bet we're gonna wind up with Naumov and Jimmy at Autumn Classic together?

Loving these line-ups!

I'm a bit surprised that the Mokhovs aren't being sent in Pairs, especially since they don't have any GP assignments yet.

kind of like Italy and Lombardia , one woman, and I think two men
But for the Italians skaters I would think at least that the possibility to go to other international competitions are easier and more likely. It´s hardly any international senior B events for Canadians without crossing oceans, it´s hard to believe that the cost of sending skaters to a Challenger they host themselves, can be more costly than sending them to Europe to do senior B events or so. We have seen it in the last couple of seasons, a lot of Canadian skaters don´t get international competition experience. And without experience it´s hard to do well when they finally get a chance in major competitions. I would believe the cost of sending skaters to Europe was part of the reasons, but when you see now that they don´t even grab the chance when they host themselves, it´s just sad. They should at least give 1-2 more skaters a chance in each discipline.

To compare, Norwegian skating Fed hasn´t really be sending a lot of skaters to Challengers either, because they require a certain level to have earned it. But this season they are finally sending some ladies to early Challengers because they showed good results last season (Risa Gomez and Kilsand). Despite this, they have in the recent years sent a lot of skaters, both in senior, junior and novice level at all levels to senior B competitions in Europe to get experience.

Norway is even considered a small fed, and for me, at least, I did use to consider Canada as one of the big skating feds. It´s just so strange to see them not giving the skaters a chance to compete internationally, particular when they are hosting a event themselves which solves the issues of expensive travel costs.
