I really hope U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon qualifies for the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. 1) He’s openly gay 2) He grew up near my hometown in Northeast Pennsylvania and 3) He’s funny as hell.
Rippon’s Twitter feed is a regular source of entertainment and he has been on fire recently.
His butt is real
There’s been a lot questions to whether I compete with butt pads on and I’d like to set the record straight and let it be known that no, it’s just my real butt. Thank you for your interest, comments, and concern. Love you.— Adam Rippon (@Adaripp) December 9, 2017
He’s hot, thank you very much

We’ll know in January after the U.S. Nationals whether Rippon has qualified for the Olympics, to be held a month later.
