Gay figure skater Adam Rippon has opened up about his taste in men.

The 28-year-old has continued making headlines following his time at the Winter Olympics where he made history for being one of the first openly gay athletes to compete in the sporting event. 

This week, Rippon made an appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live where he discussed his taste in men. 

When asked about his dating preferences, Rippon revealed that his type is “someone who goes to the gym and has a job.” 

Fellow guest and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville then interjected that he needs a “rough top”. 

Rippon, who was initially surprised by her suggestion, added: “Why not?”

The athlete made headlines this week for wearing a leather harness to the 2018 Oscars where he met his celebrity crush, Shawn Mendes

When asked by a caller what it was like to meet his celebrity crush during the show, Rippon stated: “I kind of feel like we had a connection.”
