Gus Kenworthy Follows Up Nightline Appearance With Stunning Swim Trunks Reveal

Gus Kenworthy has never been shy about showing off his amazing body on several different social media platforms, most notably his Instagram account which just passed one million followers recently.

The Olympic Bronze Medalist appeared on ABC's Nightline with his fellow Olympian friend Adam Rippon last night, doing a one-on-one.  They boys went at it and we watched!  Rippon, who's been called "America's sweetheart," spoke to "Nightline" special correspondent Gus Kenworthy about becoming the first openly gay U.S. athlete at the Winter Olympics.

Rippon gave himself that nickname?   Well if you don't love yourself...  or was it just confidence.  We all need a little more confidence.

Speaking of confidence.  Gus seemed pretty confident as he just posted a photo of him sporting nothing but a pair of H&M swim trunks as he playfully put one foot into his pool.

Users were quick to comment on his "VPL" of sorts, although it remains to be seen if that was really the case or just a situation of his trunks bunching up in a very odd place.  "...but that other leg is going the other way ...that's quite a turnout you're sporting!," one commenter said.  Giggity.

We're not sure if there is a protrusion against fabric or just some thirsty people's imagination.  You be the judge... pic below or the link is here

 

Adam Rippon Got to Smell Keith Urban at the Time 100 Gala

Olympic figure skater and future Dancing with the Stars contestant Adam Rippon just got to do something super weird but totally awesome this week.

Adam attended the Time 100 Gala in New York City on Wednesday night, where he happened to be on that particular list of the 100 most influential people in the world.  He was surrounded by A-list stars including Jennifer Lopez, Emily Blunt, and his potential new BFF... Nicole Kidman.

During his speech on stage, he mentioned how he was lucky enough to actually sniff Nicole's hunky husband Keith Urban while at the gala, which made the entire audience laugh out loud.  "“I’m really able to be who I am very effortlessly. I met Nicole Kidman earlier tonight and she even let me smell her husband. If it wasn’t for the words that my mom told me, ‘Never give up on your dreams,’ I would never have had that experience.”

Keith actually confirmed this story to Page Six later on that Adam did in fact get a whiff of him.  When they asked what fragrance he was wearing, he shot back, “My wife!”

So to recap: sniffing country singers and getting asked out on a date on live television are just part of Adam's daily life lately it seems.  Totes jealous indeed. 

 

Figure Skater Adam Rippon Earns Spot on Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People

It must be good to be Adam Rippon now.

In the past couple of months, he has become a major force in and out of the LGBTQ community.  He earned himself millions of fans during the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, both for his physical abilities on the skating rink and his no bulls**t kind of talk when it came to our Vice President Mike Pence.

He must have been doing something right, because this burgeoning star just earned himself a spot on Time Magazine's annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.  Not too shabby.

What's even more incredible is that the introduction to his part in this historic list (which also includes Jennifer Lopez, Millie Bobbie Brown and Tiffany Haddish) was penned by none other than the one, the only... Cher.

"All figure skaters are beautiful, but Adam Rippon is different. He isn’t just a beautiful skater. He has humility, grace and an incredible sense of humor," she began (see the rest here). 

Adam's reaction to this is understandably emotional, as him being authentically himself has definitely resonated with millions of other people out there, something that he promises to continue to keep doing as time goes by.

Way to go Adam! 

 

Olympians Gus Kenworthy & Adam Rippon Enjoy a Passionate Kiss With One Another

Gus Kenworthy and Adam Rippon have become the best of friends ever since they met each other prior to the 2018 Winter Olympics starting a couple of months back.  Are they taking their close bond to the next level though?

The two were in attendance at the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday, where they also presented on award on stage as well as getting the once in a lifetime chance of meeting the one and only Britney Spears while there (super jelly).

While they were on stage, Kenworthy decided to shock the upcoming Dancing with the Stars competitor by giving him a big smooch on the lips, which resulted in yet another hilarious reaction from the always funny Rippon.

So cute.  The two of them, as of now, are strictly friends, as Gus has quite the handsome boyfriend in actor Matt Wilkas.  Those two, for comparison, have shown some major PDA all over the interwebs in recent months.  

Take this for example:

Adam Rippon & 5 Other Delicious Dudes on 'DWTS' This Season

Adam Rippon has had quite the busy week, as he was first in Los Angeles last night to be part of the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards (and met Britney Spears in the process), before heading back to the east coast on Thursday where it was revealed that he was one of ten athletes competing on season 26 of Dancing with the Stars.

This is the first season where the show is strictly reserved for iconic athletes to compete.  Adam is the only LGBTQ athlete in the running for the coveted mirrorball trophy (Caitlyn Jenner was rumored to be part of it but didn't make it this time around.)  He is joined by a bevy of talented pros, including Olympic gold medalist Jennie Finch and his fellow figure skater Mirai Nagasu

Although each season has a good amount of hunky dudes gyrating all over the dance floor, season 26 seems to be a step above the rest in terms of how smoking hot this group is, both on the athletic and professional dancer side. 

Here are five delicious dudes that you should look out for both in dance and sexy form before the new season premieres April 30th on ABC.

Adam Rippon (Olympic figure skater): paired with Jenna Johnson (Dancer)

Adam Rippon Will Be On The Next Season of 'Dancing With The Stars'

Dancing With The Stars upcoming season has a specific theme to it, as it will be all athletes competing.  Two in particular that we will be focused on will be figure skaters Adam Rippon (who just took home bronze at the 2018 Winter Games) and Tonya Harding (who allegedly hired someone to take out fellow figure skater Nancy Kerrigan's knee back in the 90's).

Although the cast won't be officially revealed until April 13th, US Weekly dished the scoop that these two will be some of the ten that are competing for the coveted mirrorball trophy.  

Other rumored contestants to join DWTS' upcoming season include Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson and Olympic softball champ Jenny FinchThe National Enquirer reported that the producers of the show were looking to cast Caitlyn Jenner for season 26, but there haven't been any rumblings about her joining since word got out back in January.

Who are you rooting for the most out of this rumored group?  Do you think its wise for the show to bring Tonya on given her checkered past? 

Sorry, Boys, Adam Rippon is Off the Market!

After all the attention Adam Rippon received leading up to, during, and now after the Winter Olympics in Pyeonchang, South Korea it’s hard to think that the olympic skater would have time to do any dating. But after his skating, and his ass, gained lots of fans, Rippon had us wondering if there was someone special he had his eye on. For a moment, Sally Field’s gay son could have even been a contender thanks to his mom’s outlandish plea on social media.

But alas, it seems that Field’s son, Sam Greisman, is more of a BFF than a Bae to Rippon.

After months after meeting someone on Tinder, Rippon has posted a photo on Instagram that is breaking the hearts of so many who dreamed of cuddling up with Rippon’s booty every night--we can dream right?

Rippon is officially dating Finnish-born Jussi-Pekka Kajaala, he shared with People, after posting a shirtless photo of them during a hike at LA’s Runyon Canyon.

 

Good boys Finnish  first

He’s tall!

According to Rippon, the couple recently starting hanging out more because the last several months since they met have been really busy times for the two.

Looks like Rippon’s buns of steel are off limits. Sorry, boys!

Go For The Gold! E! Hosts Asks Adam Rippon Out on National Television

Adam Rippon may not have to be the next Bachelor or Prince Charming of sorts (there's a list he's on just in case), as guys just keep asking him out over and over and over again.  This time around, it happened on live television!

He appeared on E!'s show Daily Pop to talk about his life after the Winter Olympics, including his rumored rivalry with fellow figure skater Johnny Weir and his hilarious response to his mother's text that simple said "Be careful sexting."

Things got a tad awkward before the segment was over, as Daily Pop cohost Justin Sylvester first asked Adam if he's dating anyone right now.  "I'm not.  I've been so busy, that... I know?  Listen anybody out there, you let me know, but I've just been so busy that I haven't really had time with focusing on getting ready for the Olympics and it's just been a whirlwind after that."

The camera zoomed in on Justin during all of this, where he point blank said "So I'm going to throw this out there.  When you come to LA, I want to take you out on a date and grab drinks, your choice.  Or I could show you my LA, and we could just kick it."

Adam, who was smiling throughout, said "Wow, I love it.  I love to just kick it."  Justin was clearly "going for the gold" here, if you know what I'm saying (wink wink) 

That being said, Sally Field's son Sam Greisman needs to step up his game ASAP as he also has made it very clear (or at least Sally has) that he likes Adam.

Adam Rippon Talks Fame, D**k Pics & Skating Moves in New Interview

Olympic bronze medalist Adam Rippon is never at a loss for words when it comes to his opinions on things, and his latest interview proves that focal point and then some.

Adam, who received a ton of varying opinions about his leather harness look at the Oscars this week, sat down with SiriusXM's Michelle Collins, who hosts a daily program called The Michelle Collins Show on Stars 109.

During the interview with Michelle, he talks about his massive fame but jokes that it's fleeting, his appreciation for receiving a ton of unsolicited d**k pics, and more.  Here's an excerpt of their conversation: 

Adam: “Well, let’s get real, I’m the largest superstar in the world currently but, like, only for a week.

MC: Take advantage.

Adam: Yes.  But this is my first week in my new position.  Do you know what I mean?

MC: Oh, I know.  And that position is?  Ass backwards.  For the week.  I imagine you’re also getting a lot of unsolicited DPs and, are you the kind of guy who likes getting that?

Adam: Yes, of course I am.  I’m human! I find more humor in them than sexual arousal because it’s usually what comes along with the message which really ties a bow on top of that perfect package which is the DP.  

So, it’s usually like “hey” they don’t hear from me for 2 days…dick pic.

MC: Hard to get.  That’s what the trick is.  It would be funnier for me if it were like, “You are such and inspiration…you’ve motivated me.  P.S. dick pic". 

Adam: I was in such a dark place and now I’m feeling so much better.  Thank you so much…Flaccid penis, I’ve also gotten.  Why? I’m I supposed to paint a Renaissance painting? Why did you do that?

Do you like how Adam has handled his fame up until now? Let us know your thoughts!

Gay Extravaganza! Jim Parsons & Adam Rippon Join Britney Spears at the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards

Britney Spears will be sharing the stage with two extraordinarily fabulous gentlemen on April 12th, as Jim Parsons and Adam Rippon will be in attendance at the 2018 GLAAD Media Awards in Beverly Hills. 

Whereas Adam is simply attending the ceremony, Jim will be receiving a very prestigious honor: GLAAD's Stephen F. Kolzak Award.  The Stephen F. Kolzak Award is given "to an LGBTQ media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting LGBTQ acceptance," per GLAAD.  The award is named after a legendary casting director who devoted the last part of his life to raising awareness in the entertainment industry about the discrimination faced by LGBTQ people as well as those living with HIV.

Past recipients of this award include Chaz Bono, Wanda Sykes, Melissa Etheridge, Pedro Zamora and Alan Ball.

"Jim Parsons’ talent, humor and impressive body of work have made him one of the most visible and beloved out LGBTQ actors today,” said GLAAD president & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. “Parsons not only proudly tells LGBTQ stories through his roles, but also works behind the camera with his husband, Todd, to tell LGBTQ stories that raise the bar for Hollywood and inspire acceptance.”

It was announced back in February that Britney will be receiving this year's GLAAD Vanguard Award, which is presented annually to a member of the entertainment community who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for LGBTQ people.
