Today on The Neil Haley Show, The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Olympic Gold Medalist Tara Lipinsky of Food Network's Wedding Cake Championship.

Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir

In 2013 NBC announced Lipinski would be a sports commentator for the Sochi Winter Games, pairing her with figure skating champion and fellow Olympian Johnny Weir. The duo resonated with audiences and used social media to bring in new fans. 

“We brought in a lot of people that never watch figure skating at all," Lipinski said. "We really don’t know, [but] we go off of our Instagram and our Twitter.” Lipinski and Weir were so well received that they were asked to cover every major figure skating event for the network going forward.

Lipinski and Weir have also graduated beyond the ice skating rink and positioned themselves as lifestyle personalities. They worked the red carpet as fashion commentators at the 86th Academy Awards and have also appeared at the Kentucky Derby in 2014, the Super Bowl in 2015 and the National Dog Show in 2017, among other high profile events.
