Adam Rippon Spills on His Type: “Someone Who Goes to the Gym”

Rippon likes ‘em ripped.

Everyone’s Olympic darling Adam Rippon is in the middle of a media tour that’s included a harness-clad trip to the Oscars and a pit stop at gay favorite Bravo program Watch What Happens! Live. While on the show, host Andy Cohen asked Rippon what his “type was.”

This is, of course, the question that so many people on Gay Twitter have wanted to know.

“Someone who goes to the gym,” Rippon said. “Someone who goes to the gym and has a job.”

Prior to this revelation, Rippon told Ellen DeGeneres that his celebrity crushes included Jake Gyllenhaal, Harry Styles, and Shawn Mendes. After the Oscars, Rippon was finally able to meet Mendes.

After Rippon unveiled his exhaustive list of qualities he looks for in a man, former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville cut in and said, “He needs a rough top!” which made Rippon squirm in his chair a bit.

Hopefully that answers all your questions about who Rippon is looking to cuddle up with!
