Well, my 'lil bro, exactly what induced you to add me to your list, I am muchly confused about. Thank you very much, tho, that was quite sweet and gracious of you.

Here's my list, in no particular order: Ethan Reeves (yes, I may be a little biased, but he's an amazing speaker), Simon Sefzik (13 years old and a high rank in TP Debate last year at Nationals...), Kip Mock (refer to the explanation found after Simon), Razi Lane, Riaz Lane, Madison Collins, Esther Yoon, Jamie Burns, and Nathan Lee.

Had the pleasure to judge duos at a practice tournament the other day. Several of them really stood out. It was quite a good room.

Hungar/Hungar: Cheaper by the Dozen. Acting, cutting, and blocking is hilariously well done.

Daez/Daez: This duo is destined for greatness. You heard it here first, I expect this duo to stand out in Region 9 as perhaps it's best. Both Miguel and Sergei deliver fine, enthusiastic performances of a wide-variety of characters with passion, gusto, and a remarkable stage presence. Also, the story is not only hilarious but surprisingly touching: My Client Curly.

Amazing duo in Region 8! They took 2nd place at the Upstate Carolina Qualifier. Absolutely HILARIOUS. I'm going to see if I can film them. XD

Simon Sefzik and Kip Mock, both are epic (pun intended). So is Giovanni Segar. Jacob Dunning is like a mind blowingly smooth speaker. (Yes, they're all Region 2, I don't know many out of regioners, I have to go to more national events).

Have at it, guys! :)

Well . . .
Riaz and Razi's Duo is pretty good. :)
Shope/Shope's duo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Oxo1Gqh8rY
Riaz's humorous https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRhNK0SxbWg, Alec Light's Humorous

I think I watched each of these 3 or 4 times at the tournament and they don't get old.

I don't have a video, but Strickland/Strickland's duo is absolutely amazing. They placed fourth at the NC National Open and just won RIX's last qualifier. It's pretty hilarious. :D

Heplers. (R9) All three of them excel, especially in limited preps and debate. (Drew, Danielle, and Emily)

Seconding this. They're all incredibly talented and work extremely hard.

I've got a few R6 people to add here.

Spencer Kolssak. As if his debate skills weren't enough (PQing in both TP and LD), he is awesome at extemp (and Russian puns in extemp :lol: ). I haven't seen his other speeches, but I imagine they are similarly good.

Anna Johansen. Bear in mind, this is someone who was 3rd in Original at Nationals her novice year. :shock: That just doesn't happen. (Like, ever.) She is extremely talented, and has won sweeps at R6 tournaments this year. She has a decent chance to at least marathon, if not ironman, Nats this year.

Rachel Bechtel. I haven't seen her thematic, but from what I've heard, it is superb. (And she PQ'd in it at MN.)

Stefanie Klaves. Well, she's PQ'd in persuasive, and won a few tournaments in the same. That's pretty much all you need to know right there.

There are more, but this is all that's coming to mind now.

I would have to agree partially because they are in my club and partially because they are amazing! I would also have to shout out Clancy/Clancy as they are also an amazing duo!
