Jillian Barberie & John Zimmerman and Kristy Swanson & Lloyd Eisler face off as the last two couples in the Skating with Celebrities finale. Kristy & Lloyd lead by four-tenths of a point after Monday’s performances. To kick things off in the finale, each team gives an encore performance that is not scored by the judges. The previously eliminated skating couples also return for one last group performance.
The skating couples are challenged to complete a one-footed edge glide, side-by-side jumps, and a 3 revolution spin. Instead of a musical theme, each couple skates to a song selected for them by the judges.
The skating pairs are challenged to complete side-by-side jumps and a one-legged lunge in their routines. They skate to the background musical them of songs from the top forty. Kristy Swanson and Lloyd Eisler skate first. Their previous performances have been sporadic, ranging from first place to last place. Judge John Nicks calls their performance, “pretty good, pretty good.” The judges award the couple with the highest score so far of the competition.
