Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir have instantly become international Olympic icons, both due to their figure skating ability and their intense romantic tension (despite saying they’re only friends). The couple has been skating together for 20 years, and came out of retirement for these Olympics. While they set world records for their short program, and became the most decorated figure skaters in Olympic history, the only thing people can talk about is whether or not they’re dating.
Now let’s point something out immediately: the talents of Tessa and Scott should not be overshadowed by their clear sexual tension. The skating is what they should be remembered for…but also, they need to get married.
When you hear the way they talk about each other, it’s clear that this is more than just a friendship.
“Sometimes I might not always have the power to do it for myself, but I will always do it for Tess,” Scott said in an interview. “After 20 years, if you don’t have love for each other…do you know what we’ve been through together?”
So if you’re like me, and are unhealthily obsessed with the Canadian ice dancers who have made the world believe in love again, buckle up and get ready for some HARD EVIDENCE that these two are dating.
During a version of the Newlywed Game, one of the questions was “who is most likely to sleep in and miss practice?” Tessa quickly answers that it’s herself, but Scott chimes in otherwise.
Tessa’s look says it all.
Scott needs to take some lessons on keeping a secret! After their most recent performance, he had a (probably innocent) slip-up saying they fell in love.
“We fell in love with skating again, and with each oth- and with skating with each other.”
Okay, so this was probably just stumbling on his words…but don’t ruin the fun!!
I’m sorry, there’s figure skating partners and then there’s this.
They are constantly touching each other. Twitter user @OfVirtueMoir lays it out perfectly.
Does this not look like an engagement shoot?
They hug each other in complete silence to sync up their heartbeats and breathing.
“It’s something we’ve done for several years now really just to feel our timing together, find that synchronicity and get our breathing in unison,” Tessa said. “Just really to feel that connection and to emphasize the chemistry and togetherness that we hope to create on the ice.”
Oh, and they talk about each other like they’re married.
