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.


Olympian Nick Goepper holds contest to date him. Our endorsement...


Ski slopestyle Olympic bronze medalist Nick Goepper is currently holding a contest on social media to win a date with him. Because his two biggest fans at EW.com, Mandi Bierly and Samantha Highfill, have officially bowed out — one of us is twice his age, both of us need someone old enough to drink* — we’ve decided the least we could do is offer the 19-year-old Indiana native some professional insight into which lucky lady deserves a sleigh ride with him. (Yes, that’s one of the options he’s mentioned.) Of what we’ve seen — we could only call this “work” for so long — here are the top #iwanttodatenick contenders.  READ FULL STORY

Olympics preview: 10 reasons to root for ski slopestyle favorite Nick Goepper

By now you may have checked out slopestyle, the snowboarding and freestyle skiing event making its Olympic debut in Sochi with long rails and big jumps. The U.S. has represented well with golds for snowboarders Sage Kostenburg and Jamie Anderson and silver for skier Devin Logan, but the best may be yet to come.

Nineteen-year-old Nick Goepper drops in Feb. 13 as the favorite in men’s ski slopestyle. Qualifying and finals live-stream on NBCOlympics.com at 1:15 a.m. ET and 4:30 a.m. ET before making NBC’s prime-time cut Thursday. (Click here for results.) He defended his X Games gold last month in Aspen landing a triple cork, a high-flying, death-defying trick Shaun White has yet to lay down in competition in the more restrictive halfpipe. Below, check out his X Games runs — which also include the awesomely named switch double cork 900 Screamin’ Seemann (you cross, then hopefully uncross your skis while rotating) — and 10 more reasons why you want to be cheering for him…and following him on Twitter…and maybe crowning him your Olympic crush.
