You didn’t think you could love Olympic snowboarder Gus Kenworthy any more than you already do — but you were wrong. So very wrong. Seriously: What is wrong with you?
The latest season of MTV’s The Challenge features the athlete as a contestant, and a newly-released scene finds him opening up about coming out with former champion Cara Maria.

“I just always thought that my life as a skier and my life as a gay man couldn’t co-exist,” he says, and then starts getting emotional:
“And after a while I just realized that the pain of holding on to this lie and the pain I was having from being in the closet was actually greater than the fear of just saying f**k it and letting go and so I was just like, screw it, I’m gonna come out…The following season was my best year competitively. I didn’t miss a podium. The sponsors were all super supportive.”

Later, in a follow-up interview, he adds:
“I just hope that my story can be a beacon of light for other people that are in the closet and just let people know that the best way you can live is authentically and genuinely and everyone deserves to be free and happy.”
I love him so much. He is the cutest, loveliest.
He’s seems like a nice guy. Just goes to show you shouldn’t judge someone’s personality based on their thirsty instagram pics.
just before I saw the paycheck which was of $9068 , I did not believe …that…my father in law was like they say actually taking home money in there spare time on their computer. . there brothers friend haze done this for less than seven months and at present paid the loans on there apartment .. .??????? ?????____BIG…..EARN….MONEY..___???????-</b
Bitch Please! He couldn’t ski And be a gay man? That’s like saying he can’t work at McDonald’s And be gay. So sick of this dumbass.
And THERE’S the toxic queen we’ve all been waiting for, Prax07. Ugh. Can’t we just be supportive of it be another? Why must these nasty, vicious ruin everything. Doubtlessly Prax thinks he’s being witty and sassy and fierce and all….that. But in truth you’re just toxic.
That’s not what he meant. He’s in the public eye and something most of us can’t understand. It’s not like he’s got a gay skiing club for support.
All you bitter bitches STFU – I’m enjoying the view, and you’re killing the buzz!
he def aint all that.
Why couldn’t he find a gay ski club for support? There’s got to be some out there. And please, being gay has nothing at all to do with a ski career.
I’m just sick to death of these celebrities saying oh poor me, I’m famous and rich and felt I couldn’t come out. The Only reason guys like this come out at all is because they’ve Already got their money and fame, so they won’t lose anything by doing it After, and then they bitch and moan about it.
I’m glad Gus exists as an antidote to the hate above. He couldn’t be out in Putin’s Sochi, instead he & his boyfriend rescued puppies (after a medal sweep). His sport involves traveling the globe year round, training & competing, he’d never even attended the gay ski weekend in his home town. Now he has. Gus has done the right thing. Be proud. Not hateful. Thanx, Gus!
