Figure Skater

The Resume

    (November 11, 1989- )
    Born in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania
    Twice won the World Junior Championships (2008-09)
    Won a bronze medal for the Figure Skating Team Event at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics (2018)
    Winner of ‘Dancing with the Stars: Athletes’ (2018)

Why he might be annoying:

    He started skating at age ten – which makes him a late bloomer by the sport’s standards.
    He has dyed his hair just about every color, from platinum blonde to purple.
    Asked to name his ‘most interesting’ teammate, he replied, ‘Me.’
    He said, ‘I’m a hot mess all the time.’
    He wore a leather harness and tux combo to the Oscar ceremony (2018).

Why he might not be annoying:

    He was born with a severe hearing loss, but underwent surgery before his first birthday that enabled him to hear almost perfectly.
    He survived a burst appendix when he was five.
    He is the first openly gay American athlete to win a medal at the winter Olympics.
    He was so impressive on DWTS that judge Bruno Tonioli said, ‘It’s impossible to tell who is the professional.’
    He said, ‘Being true to who you are and not giving a shit about what others think about you is an awesome and liberating thing whether you are gay or not.’
