I knew the moment she said "how hard can it be?" that she was doomed from the start 😂
Rainbow Bones
Ma boi in the rainbow shirt was holding back, I know he would've flamed everyone 😂
Jessy Jae
Gabby: How hard can it be ? Figure skaters everywhere: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH LOL cute.
thegreendestiny
The "fitness instructor" wasn't so fit for the ice, eh?
Alexis Garcia
I think rainbow shirt was pretty good because he wasn't afraid of falling, he embraced his fate and just exerted himself fully
Nina M.
I commend these people because i cant even skate normally, much less do any sort of tricks. Ive tried several times and it just doesnt come naturally
Brian Morales
“My mother used to tell me I was a natural athlete, ... she lied” 😂😂
maggie L
Of course the girl that said it wouldn't be difficult ended up struggling. Don't under estimate ice skating 😂
Johnny Cheese
So kristi doesn’t age after 1996
Avanna Ellormie
I wanna see hockey players try figure skating.
Steffi J
Girl said "it's gonna be easy" doesn't understand how lethal figure skating is.. It's hella difficult to skate... Don't underestimate it cuz it's pretty
Retro Bit Baby RBB
How could you think that because you are an gym nut or fitness junkie means you'll have a natural advantage SKATING ON ICE. The cloest a person can get to that and not be on ice is ballet and I'm sure she doesn't do that. The dude who fell did a little better than her. And he isn't even an athlete or anything.
formerflautist
Kristi is ageless.
KySempai
Kristi is 46 years old... How tho? Also, remember when she was in that old Disney movie called "Go Figure"? She looks exactly the same! And that came out like 20 years ago!
taekmyhand
I cant even skate on ice normally without holding on to a wall.
drewpamon
So many 5 year old girls who can already do all these moves and were insanely jealous that they didn't get to train with Kristi
LilBird Animations
I’m a figure skater and when she said “how hard can it be” I said “oh just you wait”
Misaki M
**whispers** *ima be the best pork cutlet bowl EVER*
yuuue
How can she not have aged at all since 1992
cembra .m
I was lousy at figure skating as a child and stopped going to the rink, but then for some reason at the age of 26, I decided to give it a go one afternoon. About two years later, I got good enough to land a single Axel jump and work on a double Salchow.
LOGIC22
I love all your video's
Linda Sturm
They are much braver than I for sure. I really don't need a broken hip.
hckyroxs
I'm a hockey player but I have a lot of respect for figure skaters, it's a tough sport. As soon as that lady said "how hard could it be?" I just burst out laughing and knew she would soon find out how hard it really is.
Glitter Ghost
I hate when people are like this lady "how hard can it be" for us, figure skaters, skating is our life and we dedicate it so much. So much bruises, hours, money, passion, pride, effort and we do it just to one day see our family in the audience watching us perform and being proud of us and then we feel like all of this time was really worth it. So don't be like "oh this looks simple I could probably do it too." because it's hard as heck and when I hear something like that I feel really insulted. You need to really love this sport to do it, being able to skate forward doesn't mean you'll do good as a figure skater.

Being a figure skater im giggling at how they dont know how do figure skate but i remembered i was there too

Kristi is still amazing talent.
jeonskies
i actually met kristi yamaguchi in elementary school and got a signed version of her book she wrote :)
Claire K
these words coming from a girl who did competitive solo figure skating for four years after training for four years: you will not be a good skater based on other things. it’s very different from most sports because the entire concept is balance. honestly i was aggravated with the girl in this video. she was cocky beyond normal confidence and assumed that her other skill sets translated. off ice training would’ve been better for her, but her cockiness put her in immediate danger, even though it was just a mindset. meanwhile, rainbow shirt guy put everything he had into the session which is exactly what you should be doing as a figure skater or someone just skating for fun. it doesn’t matter how good you are if you don’t put in any personality. that won’t let you win.
Dawn B
I love Kristi Yamaguchi! She’s so nice.😊
Katrina
Kristi hasn't aged and actually looks younger - because let's be honest the 90's was a tough decade for hair and makeup.
Shadow Lights
This was amazing! I've always been interested in Figure skating. :)

Aurora Meiesna
Why shouldn't you tell jokes while ice-skating? Because the ice might crack up!
Hannah Kim

K Lu
I hope that lady was kidding when she said how hard can it be. How dismissive.
AlohaMia

da1stamericus

When you get into Yuri on ice
Dani Relyea
The girl was so cold! Why did they have her in that outfit😂
Morbid Resolutions
I can say for sure the most annoying thing when I played hockey was playing a game on the ice after a group of figure skating lessons. Everyone constantly fell, and tripped on the holes. Don't get me wrong, I like watching figure skating, but it was a HUGE pet peeve of mine.
Eve Weide
I really liked this video but I would like to see a video where people would try to learn it in a month to see the progress. ;)
everyonegodie
They should all be wearing helmets
Emily Mintern
To be fair they don’t have proper figure skates on ? So there not gonna do that well
