The Tater thing that was bad was first they cut to her and she was saying things like "get in the camera.. hey get over here". Then when she interviewed him she asked if he was going to take the reride... well he wasn't even offered a reride. Tater was being nice and was like 83 isn't a bad score so no I am not taking the reride. When they cut back to Brett, Mckee and Ty they had to clarify that Tater wasn't offered a reride.
In her defense with the Tater thing, the tv announcers were even talking about the fact that he had gotten a reride until after his interview with her. So obviously that was the info they were being given. That was not her fault. I don't think she was being "bossy" as in mean bossy with Tater. I agree with Cody on the JW thing. If it would have been Leah it would have been funny. As with anybody learning a new aspect of a job, some days will be good others will be bad. She unfortunately is making her mistakes in front of a national audience. I was around her for the 1st time this weekend in CA and she really does have a good raport with the bull riders. She really is very nice. I hope she works out but we will have to see.

But she has no right to boss around the riders...if anything they should boss her around but they all are too nice to do that. It was just akward when she punched JW, it seems that every conversation that she has is like that though. I think that if enough of us send in e-mails to OLN maybe they will do something about this problem. I know Leah said that who ever takes her place has to be "one of the guys" but i think that Tava is trying a little to hard, she needs to learn to relax and be herself. And if she is being herself...well then we have a serious problem!

She has to go, she is driving me CRAZY!!! She ends all of the interviews with an awkward pause and just stands there looking at the camera. You can tell that the PBR is the last place she wants to be. At least in the beginning she had some pep, but now she is getting on my nerves!
I like the comment about contact OLN with our opinions, here is the address listed on their website for comments: email@example.com

I have been one saying give her a chance and that she is just a little nervous but, i have to say she has become SOOOOOOOO annoying. She forces her questions and to be honest it is like she is putting to much pressure on herself like she knows she is gone. I sure wish Pam Minnick was available she is, was and will forever be the best.

I have to say that I met her and talked to her this weekend. She is VERY VERY nice in person and actually gets along with a lot of the guys pretty well. She is EXTREMELY hyper though! Now that I know her and just how hyper she is, I'll have to see what I think about her.
i must say that she was really nice and was having a blast this weekend. she was telling jokes with the riders and the band and having a great time. she is also a hyper little lady and i must say that i like her more now that i have got to meet her in person!
Last week (Reno), I think she did a better job than ever before. She's not hit her rhythm yet. I doubt that anyone new could jump right in and do a decent job. I'm not certain why she was picked overall, though, for this job. Her voice is not necessarily one that I would associate with broadcasting. She said "back to you guys" a lot less last week, which is one improvement. I suspect it will take time before she feels and seems natural in the setting and before the riders and other participants take a natural likin' to her.

I believe the main reason why no one likes her is because she is trying to hard. Leah used to make it look so natural. Pam well, she has always been just one of the guys. I was dissapointed with her, i said i didnt like her, but i think that she is seriously giving it her best and once she becomes more natural and lets it flow it will be alot better.
OK... she is a nice person and trying really hard. But does that mean if I sew on two raisins and a button they will put me on TV too. Send that woman back to the Home Shoppers Network, or wherever she came from.
