acey, I'm with you about Teresa. Too hammy. Actually there are several of Christi's background people who are pretty hammy (Julie is too but for some reason Teresa bothers me more). It makes me wonder if Christi tells them to ham it up!

My favorites are Brenda from Cathe's workouts and Rhonda and Hope from older Cathes. Hope forever won my heart when she began modifying in the original IMAX. I also like Lauren from KCM workouts although I don't do KCM anymore. I think Lauren has gone on to other things anyway. Patrick G always seems to have great background people who don't "get in the way" of the workout.

Oh and I can't forget Kat Gates Buettner's 2 cats. They are probably the best backgrounders of all!

I always appreciated that in the later "pink" FIRM workouts, the backgrounders are almost exclusively other FIRM instructors (with a few exceptions). One thing I especially like is when one of them looks a little overwhelmed by the workout, even if they're the beginner modifier. Alison Davis seems to do this in particular, and it's quite relatable! In some of her earliest workouts in the TransFIRMer era, she looks downright flummoxed, poor thing! I FEEL YA, GiRL!

I like the guy in Kristin Dowell's Hi/Lo Recharge. Sometimes his expression can be a little hammy or exuberant but in a good way. Just the right amount--not overboard.

Narty with the FIRM... and then to see her again in some of the Fitprimes/Kickbutts was wonderful.

I think it's in Jiggle Free Arms where Alison is the modifier and when they start doing the speed bag arms, she just...can't. It always makes me chuckle!
