Tag: Gus Kenworthy (1-2 of 2)

Olympians Gus Kenworthy, Joss Christensen, and Nick Goepper compete in the EW Dating Games -- VIDEO

Their sport, ski slopestyle, made its Olympic debut in Sochi, so it’s only fitting that we asked Gus Kenworthy, Joss Christensen, and Nick Goepper to compete in our inaugural EW Dating Games. Also working in their favor: 19-year-old bronze medalist Goepper is currently holding his own dating contest on social media; 22-year-old silver medalist Kenworthy did the extremely swoonworthy act of rescuing a family of Sochi strays (he’ll keep puppies Rosa and Gorky, his brother will take puppy Jake, and their mother will have Mama); and soft-spoken 22-year-old gold medalist Christensen, it turns out, is hiding this under all that baggy clothing. (We already knew what Goepper was (six)packing.)

So here’s how it works: Each guy answers five questions revealing his celebrity love guru, the movie he’d have EW watch on our first date, the TV show he’d insist we marathon if we were snowed in together, the song he would use to “set the mood,” and where he’d take us on a dream date. The catch: The other two get to score his answers on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the best). The gentleman with the highest total wins. In this case, the prize is acting out his dream date with EW’s Samantha Highfill, who got up at 4:30 a.m. ET to watch their final stream live.

Enjoy the EW Dating Games: Olympic Sweep Edition below. Then watch the full first take of the date.


Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy is a puppy-saving dreamboat

Gus Kenworthy is an Olympic medalist and a dog-lover. Be my valentine?

Really though: The silver-wining freestyle skier stumbled on some stray puppies in Sochi and decided to bring them (and their mom!) back to the U.S. with him. He gave the pups their social media debut by posting swoon-worthy photos of him and his new pals on Twitter. “Puppy love is real to puppies,” he captioned a photo where four little dogs are bursting out of his arms. He’s also got a sense of humor? It just keeps getting better.
