Does US Ice Dance Skater Meryl Davis Look Like the Na’vi from Avatar?

Is it me, or every time that I see US ice dance skater Meryl Davis, I think that the Avatar animators stole her looks for the Na’vi creatures in the movie?

Sure looks like a little nose job, war paint and dreadlocks could have made Meryl the sister of Neyteri! The TV pictures are even better, and I wish Neyteri would have smiled for a picture or two! But maybe if Meryl had shown up in the crazy blue jump suits worn by Ukrainian pairs skaters Tatiana Volosozhar and Stanislav Morozov at these same Olympics, it might have convinced you!

Hey, isn’t there a gala show or something after the competition is over? Meryl should maybe come out in that get up and a little blue face paint! She and skating partner Charlie White could do an Avatar epic!

Or maybe do one for the World Championship in Turin next month? Probably too soon but certainly not for next winter! I think they’d have the crowd behind them!

But listen, Meryl, Avatar made a ton of money! There’s no reason a little of it couldn’t be yours! I think you’ve got a great case they stole your beauty for those creatures in that mega-hit movie!

Maybe even better, ask for a starring role in the sequel! When the avatar comes out into the real world!

And takes up ice dancing! No, just kidding! πŸ™‚

Congrats on the silver medal at the ice dance in the Olympics, Meryl and Charlie.
Fantastic show, but Virtue & Moir were just a tad better.

  1. OMG OMG OMG. my husband and family were talking about her navi-ness for the past week! i wonder if she knows she looks like a navi… :0)

    • Well, aren’t you excitable, Chewie Bar? πŸ™‚

      I don’t know if Meryl has been asked or told about the Na’vi before, or thought of her resemblance if she’s seen Avatar (probably has seen). However, around 1,500 people have read this so far in a couple of days. The voting is like 96% in favour that she looks like a Na’vi. You think someone might send Meryl an email on her site to let her know?

      It’s an exotic beauty that’s a bit more dependent on the eye of the beholder than some more common beauty. Thanks for your comment.

  2. As a fanatic, DC, I’ll be sad to see Vancouver’s Games end but I have Londonn to look forward to next! In the meantime, between now and 2012, I’ll be discussing IOC news, Olympic trials, and also posting commentaries on former Olympians. I also am lining up some post-Vancouver interviews with athletes. My posts will probably go from daily to once or twice-weekly. I love the Olympics!

    P.S. I added your sports section to my blogroll.

  3. I need to know who sand ” Billy Jean ” for Meryl and Charlie’s performance at the Gala; they were excellent !

  4. David Cook from “American Idol.” He won two years ago, I believe? You can probably find it on iTunes.

    Thanks, DC, for the support! I look forward to more of your great stuff!

  5. i was looked too, when she was in ice in vancouver. it’s so funny, she’e fantastic. she will make suncouple operation 100% avatar

  6. If people are going to be so cruel, why isn’t someone discussing the fact that tanith’s moles are so ugly on hi-def tv? Or the fact that Charlie always has pimples or tessa virtue is having an affair with a married man? None of this has anything to do with their skating.

  7. I thought Meryl looks like a Na’vi too, before seing it here πŸ™‚ Well, seeing her compared to Neytiri, should take it like a compliment, since Neytiri was a very beautiful Na’vi. It never struck me Charlie looks like Sam from LOTR LOL. Good spotted ! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Phaenius. I agree with you that Meryl’s Na’vi looks, or rather Neyteri’s Meryl looks since Meryl was around before Neyteri, is definitely an exotic beauty. πŸ™‚

  8. David Pelletier and Jamie Sale just divorced, or filed for it. He was rumoured to be the “married man”. So, disgusted might turn out to be right after all. It would not be a surprise, because after all, he was married when Jamie Sale got involved with him. Leopards do not change their spots.

    • Oh oh, why don’t you virtually hook up with Disgusted and talk conspiracy theories over Messenger or something. So Pelletier and Sale are divorcing. All you or anybody else has got is a rumour to go on to attach Tessa Virtue to this. That’s a bigger leap of faith than I know some people to have in believing in God. Just wait till you have something more to connect some dots instead of creating dots to try to get to a conclusion.

      You and Disgusted may be right with the rumours. Some rumours will inevitably come true. It’s easy to throw it out there like buying a lottery ticket where if it were true, you brag about it, and if it were not, you can either say you weren’t the only buying into it, or just quietly forget about it. It’s like a chance to make yourselves look brilliant, or insightful, without anything to lose. Well, who can’t do that???

      You’re more than welcomed to share your opinions, “oh oh”, but you might want to change your username to “Distasteful” to match with “Disgusted”. I’ve heard rumours you two have something going on behind some people’s backs.

      Just saying stuff I’ve heard, ya know?

  9. Hey, Digital Citizen: are you busy eating crow? They went public with the fact that they were dating (although they kept fudging the date their relationship began). I know for a fact it was going on for months before they announced it. Everybody in Skate Canada knows. They all kept it quiet so she could look like the princess you take her to be. Now, people are attacking Jamie, calling her all kinds of cruel names like she drove the father of her baby into poor innocent Tessa’s arms. Puke

    • Blahblah, dates might matter here. Not relationship dates, calendar dates. Some of the comments made by the various parties, myself included, might have been before all this “announcement” happened. I don’t follow the soap opera aspect of the skating world, but to read all the comments as if they were posted yesterday isn’t fair.

      When I made some of the comments I did, especially to the comment by “Disgusted”, the only thing that showed up on such rumours were her comments. Nobody else was even spreading the rumour online. And yes, it’d have been big enough that if there were any truth to it, it’d have been talked about a bit more than two comments by the same person under different name using the same IP address.

      If you “knew for a fact” the relationship was going on, you should sell your “evidence” cause it’d have been worth a lot of money!

      I don’t care enough to search more on the topic right now as I have a big vacation ahead of me in a few days. I’ll just see it when the media makes enough of a deal about it.

      Thanks for your comment. πŸ™‚

  10. Meryl Davis looks much more like The Count from Sesame Street than a Navi from Avatar.
    Do your own comparison and you’ll agree.
