Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir Are ‘Definitely Not Dating’

Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir Are ‘Definitely Not Dating’

So your fans campaigned
to get you on the show. I mean, it was
trending on Twitter. It was a huge deal. It’s so heartwarming. And I have to
admit, social media is still relatively new for us. It’s new territory. We’re like the only ones
in the world probably. In Vancouver and in Sochi, both
those Olympics, neither of us were active on social media. And we’re fiercely private. So this has been
really special to sort of share our Olympic
experience with so many people, and this is such a
thrill and an honor. Thank you to everyone
for getting us here. Yeah, well– we don’t
ask [INAUDIBLE] anybody. The fans wanted you here,
we wanted you here also. It’s not like we weren’t
going to have you here. But it was great,
that he did that. Now you are the most decorated
figure skaters in history. Has that sunk in yet? That is a pretty
amazing compliment. Obviously, a lot of
things have to go right to have three different
cycles, especially as a team. And yeah, it’s been
pretty special. And 20 years skating together. And you have
chemistry, obviously. And a lot of people
are saying that there is more than just chemistry
there, that you’re a couple. They are? That said that–
that’s what they say. I think you’ve
heard that before. I mean, are you a couple? We are not. But you know, we always say
that that’s a big compliment. Because what we portray on the
ice is really important to us, and we love getting
into character. We love telling a story. And a lot of the
emotions we portray are universal themes that
resonate with everyone. The fact that people feel
invested in our partnership is truly remarkable. And I mean, we’ve spent
20 years working hard on this partnership, a
lot of trust, and mostly– I mean, in those moments when
the music ended in Pyeongchang, I just looked at
Scott and I was so grateful to have lived the
last 20 years by his side and to share in that
moment together. So you’re a couple. If we were, we would
announce it here. Yeah. This would be the place. Well, in 20 years, there’s never
been a time that you dated, at all? Actually, we did
date, when we were– Aw. Yeah, just wait. We were about that old. Yeah, exactly. Just before that
picture was taken. Tessa was 7 or 9. But we didn’t talk
to each other. I remember when we were
skating we would just hold hands and avoid eye contact. And in order to advance
our partnership, we had to put the hot and
heavy relationship on the side. Which meant you had
to break up with me. Yeah, I broke up with Tessa,
and none of my friends have let me live
that down since. Wait. So you did sort of date
when you were young? If you can call it that, yeah. I think mostly our families
were laughing at us. They kind of set us up. And it was the same
thing, actually, when we started ice dancing. They just kind of
put us together, and I think it was just
for their amusement. And all of a sudden, 20 years
later, we’re still doing it. Joke’s on them. And will this be your last
Olympics, do you think? You know, if it is, what a
way to go out, on such a high. And we took some time off
after the Sochi Olympics and had a two year
comeback plan. And to live that Olympic
fairytale the way we did, and execute those programs
how we dreamed of, is something that we’ll cherish. You know, that feeling
that is truly fantastic. I mean– Yeah, we’ll probably– Probably. Probably the last one. Time to end. So you’ll settle down
and start a family. Families, yeah. Oh, you’re going to
marry different people and stay together? Yeah. I see, great. All right. We’re going to take a break,
and we’re going to come back and we’re going to test how
much chemistry you really do have together, even though
you’re not together. OK. But you should be. We’ll be back. And I know you’re saying
you’re not dating, but we want to
find out for sure, so we’re going to
see how well you know each other in a game we’re
calling The Definitely Not Dating Game. Yeah. All right, so we asked
you questions earlier before the show started,
you wrote down answers, to see how well you
know each other. Tessa, what is Scott’s
favorite TV show? The Office. It is The Office. We’re so competitive
at this game. All right, I want to win, but
I think we both win, right? Scott, if Tessa
is getting hangry, what food should you give her? Oh, chocolate. Oh, I said breakfast. Anything breakfast. [BUZZER] Hmm. All right. That wasn’t a good start. That’s a miss. No, you started off fine. Now it’s just down. Downhill from here. All right Tessa, who is
Scott’s celebrity crush? Oh, Walk The Line. Reese Witherspoon? Reese Witherspoon, yeah. Oh my god, that’s so
funny that you said that. Reese Witherspoon
in Walk The Line. Wow. It’s very– or J-Lo. See, I talked a
little about J-Lo. J-Lo or Reese, but only
Reese in Walk The Line. I don’t know why. I mean Reese
always, but I really liked her in Walk The Line. I should have known that, J-Lo. And pretty much and
J-Lo in almost anything. In anything, yes. All right Scott, what is
Tessa’s guilty pleasure? Oh my gosh, I feel like
I’m using the same card. Chocolate. Chocolate. OK, good. Yeah, OK. I’m very pretty. But like, she shouldn’t
feel guilty about that. Just eat whatever you want. Yeah, eat whatever you want. Tessa, does Scott
prefer boxers or briefs? I struggled with this one. I guessed. What? I know. Boxers. I should have said boxer
briefs, but is that not a thing? Oh, that’s a thing, yeah. And that is kind of– We have those. Boxer briefs. Yes. Yeah. Briefs are for work. OK. Yeah, take two. Briefs are for work. Well, there you go. Scott, if Tessa could pick any
actress to play her in a movie, who would she pick? Emma Watson. Yeah. Emma Watson, wow. So you all have
talked about that. Yeah. Clearly. Tessa, what is
Scott’s biggest fear? Oh, gosh. Well, I went on a limb. I know that he has a
major fear of mascots. Is that what you said? You said that? Scott, wants Tessa’s
go to coffee order? Oh, my gosh. I struggled with this
one, and I know I’m wrong. But she’s– I would
say, flat white. Oh, that’s a good guess. But you change it up. Good try, but I said, almond– Almond milk cappuccino. Oh, well. All right, it’s good
you all aren’t together. Which makes– All right, well
that was a fun game. And we learned that you are
fine just the way you are.

  5. nmtg says:

    At about 1:14, Ellen asks them "…are you a couple?" Watch Scott Moir's body language here. He's practically nodding in response. Meanwhile, Tessa Virtue says, "We are not…but…" Hilarious. I'm sure it's tough for them being scrutinized all the time about their personal life but this moment is amusing.

  6. Daniela Mello says:

    1:15 Ellen asks 'are you a couple?' Scott noddles his head in agreement. 👁️👁️ 😊

  9. María Paz Palacios says:

    I love how they are so media trained that it’s so obvious to know when they’re actually getting out of their script and being spontaneous. They’re 100% together, they know we know they know. Thank you for coming to my TED talk

    love them so much 🙂

  31. Nicholas Camp says:

    It all depends on how one defines "dating".

  32. 56dinosaur says:

    Maybe it's good that they are strictly a performing couple. At one of their post-Olympics press onferences, we got a glimpse of Scott's temper. When asked a question that he didn't like, Scott angrily growled "It's none of your business", then he regained his usual expressionless reserve/composure. Like many people who normally show little emotion, when Scott is forced to show emotion, what comes out is ugly and explosive, like shaking up a bootle of Coca Cola before opening it. In a real life romantic relationship with Tessa Virtue, Scott's temper would be cause for concern. Tessa must know that. They entertain the public superbly.. Let's leave it at that.

  33. Vivien Lee says:

    Geez!!! They are NOT dating!!!!! Stop making it a thing! If they are, big deal. If not, just respect the skating.

    You know, ppl who keep pushing for this is like how their aunts keep pushing them together. It won’t work. They need space. So just leave them alone!

    Also they’ve been “Canada’s Sweethearts” for 20 years!! With an entire country, now the entire world wanting them to be a couple, it’s hard for them to even realize that for themselves. So leave them alone!

  34. naomi wiesner says:

    The way they look at eachother is so special

  35. mimsicle says:

    THEYRE GOING TO DATE. Like the tension just makes their competitions more passionate… but after that we all know they're going to town or regret not doing it.

  36. 56dinosaur says:

    In a real relationship, Scott's temper would be cause for concern. in one of their press conferences (after their most recent Olympic victory), Scott lost his cool with a reporter wwho asked a question that he (Scott) didn't like. He growled "It's none of your business!", before regaining his (highly reserved, expressionless) composure.

  37. Angel of Darkness says:

    Bunlar çıkmıyorsa ben de gelecekten geliyorum aq

  38. Grace Rodriguez says:

    "Are you are a couple?"
    Scott nodded asdfghjkl

  39. EverythingWonderful says:

    I really think the have chemistry, but to be professional, they can not start a relationship, or else when they end it, they'll also have to end their partnership…

  40. Legends says:

    'youre gonna marry different people and stay together' LOOOL

  41. Pluto says:

    I know man they did have that Olympics fairytale they came and conquered.

  42. Leila Tang says:

    they got paired up at 8, so I think the reason that they're not dating is they are too close and that they are like a brother and sister.

  43. Leila Tang says:

    though I feel like they are dating deep inside… because they just have to be.

  44. Leila Tang says:

    After all those years….it disappoint me.

  45. Danni Style63 says:

    Who cares if they are dating or not!!

  46. RandomIsMyLif3 says:

    the only pair couple that has come close to grinkov and gordeeva..but no one can top what they achieved and the adoration they had for eachother..grinkov made katerina fly

  47. M MG says:

    I think they are doing this for publicity purposes. I know there are people that really protect their private lives. But all this denial and flirty games just have the opposite result. People wants to know more and more. I mean, Maxim Trankov and Tatiana Volosozhar were a couple, got married, had a baby like the most normal thing. And now with the Canada tour Tessa and Scott doing the same lots of flirty performance they lost freshness. They exploited this too much. Bit that's just me.

  48. Zuzana Simurdova says:


  49. María Paz Palacios says:

    Somehow I always end up here

  50. tessa buttface says:

    he kinda look like gru from the side…

  51. NumNum Num says:

    I think everyone took this the wrong way; They’re best friends and they’re so comfortable with each other that people think it might be something more. I read somewhere (don’t ask for details, I don’t remember where) that they tried dating when they were 15-16, but it didn’t work out because of how close they were. It’s basically like dating your brother or sister. So it’s just a lifelong friendship and that’s the most impressive thing here❤️

  83. Narendra Vadher says:

    Nice super both of you

  84. Geo Season says:

    They don't need to date)) because I am sure they are spending more time together than any other couple :))

    Though I do not believe that they are not in love :)) you do not project that much passion into a performance without having it for real 🙂
    I am pretty sure that they are together they just don't want to make it public 🙂 and the fact that they deny it also creates a certain image which really
    gives the public something to talk about:))

  85. Visionary Daydreamer says:

    shes keeping it a secret and calls the shots bc she is a taurus/gemini and he is virgo so he goes along with it. he gave the same wrong answer in another video like this which was before this one…where he also says her fave food is chocolate and she says its eggs… lolz. yea im a fan…theyre adorable what can i say.

  86. Bettina says:

    Haha! Whatever! They were even in ‚marriage counseling“ , I heard bc they have to be together many hours almost every day. Sometimes I think they enjoy making people guess. They are both so nice. Congratulations to your outstanding success!

  87. Princess Espiritu says:

    And in the following year, the same things were being said about Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. I think what is great about them, is that neither "couple" are romantic couples.

  93. Julia S. says:

    The way they look at each other shows the mutual respect they have for each other

    Coming back to this interview after Scott announced his engagement makes the little awkward laughs both of them do whenever Ellen says they're a couple are so much more obvious.
