I think I was concentrating so hard at not mispronouncing peoples names that I failed entirely within something I shouldn’t have failed at in the first place 🤦‍♂️
 

Really was incredible how close each of the comps was, with both coming down virtually to zero seconds on the clock. Don’t think that’s happened before, at least not in both men’s and women’s. 

Wonder what the rest of the season has in store?!

As such, there seemed little point in reporting on it…

Given her age, probably the usual things you study at school.

Yep, I forgot she is still so young! (19th birthday in 2 days)

I don't think you were harsh enough!
