Not only did Telluride’s Gus Kenworthy take the silver medal in slopestyle, but his penchant for the stray puppies in Sochi has also earned him Jezebel’s rating of the “official heartthrob” of the 2014 Olympics. He was also profiled in the New York Times and the Washington Post, as well as a pre-fame piece in Telluride Magazine.
Jezebel readers are swooning over “America’s sweetheart” Gus. Check out the hilarious comments, ranging from marriage proposals and claims of “imploding ovaries” to advice about getting the puppies home and adopted.
Telluriders will convene at 7 p.m. tonight at the Palm to watch Gus Kenworthy make history. Congratulations Gus!
