He’s got his own reality TV show, he’s a teen heartthrob, and now he’s gracing the cover of ESPN The Magazine. Ryan Sheckler is one of the very few X-Games athletes (he’s a skateboarder) who have been able to make the leap from obscurity to near-super-stardom. It’s easy to tell why. He’s super cute, has a happy-go-lucky attitude, he cries on TV, he loves to take his shirt off (more pics after the jump), and he wants a Sheckler-branded lip balm. From ESPN The Magazine:
He is unlike any street skater in history. One, because he is preternaturally gifted, able to ride with uncommon grace and with the consistency of a dart pro. And two, because he's happy selling out. He plans to start a clothing company. A gear company. Do movies. "You know what I really want?" he asks earnestly. "My own cologne."
Did I mention he’s finally 18? –Cyd Zeigler jr.
