This week Jessica and Emma Bailey recap episode two of the BBC’s new show Tumble. We consider these important topics:
What time to arrive at the BBC One studio if you want to be in the live studio audience for Tumble.
Would the American post-Olympic tour benefit from hiring the Tumble creators?
The tear-jerking, beauty of the “Butterfly” performance by Beth Tweddle featuring some of our favorite junior elite gymnasts from the British squad.
Which gymnasts (hint, Simone Biles) should wear Lucy Mecklenburgh’s green leotard from this week’s show?
We speculate on the veracity of the incompetence demonstrated by the celebrities during their practices.
Does Sarah Harding have poor cardio or is she just unaware that her mouth is hanging open throughout her performance?
Claudia Fragapane gave great advice and the English champions from the commonwealth games
Was the romance storyline between Kristin Allen and Bobby Lockwood, just a ruse to throw us off of the H Watkins and John Partridge, romance?
Natalia Ilienko shed tears after the show.
Determine that everything in life should come down to a “Vault Off”
Nastia’s triceps and gorgeous arm muscles.
Alex cuts off Louis Smith and Jessica is enraged!
Is the quality of this show greatly improved because of the variety of professionals from different gymnastics disciplines — acrobatics, circus, artistic etc.
Two contestants were members of the Royal Ballet - not normal humans, these are super athletes.
We predict Amelle will be the last woman standing.
