I LOVE Hollie Vise’s gymnastics. Seriously. Little Tweenaged Bekah cried when Hollie didn’t make the Olympic team. But this, my friends, is unforgivable.
Why do they think this is okay? How much are they being paid to embarrass themselves this severely? When I initially saw this “routine”, I thought that this was as bad as it could get. Oh no, it gets worse.
Since when does an attempt sex appeal have to be part of gymnastics? I just don’t understand. Does this sell to little 10 year old girls somewhere? I guess it has to, or they wouldn’t keep doing it. But this isn’t the only option, because year after year, there’s someone who proves that it’s possible to perform, captivate the audience, and not look like a dumbass.
I love this “Once Upon a December” routine. This is from the Olympic Gala, but she did it on tour prior to the Olympics. She does some barre work on beam, and then she actually performs a routine! Not that “high on the hill was the lonely goatherd” bullshit. She really performs.
Spanny wraps up my feelings on Hollie's routine pretty well in this blog.
