Who is Gus Kenworthy?
Born on October 1, 1991, in Essex, England, Gus is a freestyle skier, who has never shied away from expressing himself on social media. He's open and straightforward, and wears his heart on his sleeves as is evident from his social media feeds.
In 2018, after the Winter Olympics opening ceremony was concluded, Gus openly acknowledged fellow skier Adam Rippon as he posted a string of photos where he was affectionately holding the figure skater. "We're here. We're queer. Get used to it," he had tweeted. At this point, he was a few years into his relationship with Matthew Wilkas. The couple first met on Instagram in 2015 and split four years later. "They love and support each other and remain close friends," Gus's spokesperson had confirmed.
Dating and professional life aside, Gus also made headlines for rescuing 90 dogs from a South Korean meat farm. "Across the country, there are 2.5 million dogs being raised for food in some of the most disturbing conditions imaginable," he wrote on Instagram and added: "The way these animals are being treated, however, is completely inhumane and culture should never be a scapegoat for cruelty. Despite the beliefs of some, these dogs are no different from the ones we call pets back home.”
Gus, who is otherwise on his toes traveling continents for the sport he plays, spends his free time with his dog and guitar out of his plush home, which was recently featured in Architectural Digest. "Welcome to my home! There are no rules in this house. I'm not like a regular mom, I'm a cool mom! No, just kidding, put that fucking glass on a coaster or I'll rip your head off," he posted on the photo-blogging site as he shared a glimpse of his newly done up bachelor pad.
Meanwhile, fans weighed in with their two cents on the matter pairing Gus with Colton, though the duo has made no mention of any relationship between them. "Lordt, it’s Gus Kenworthy. He couldn’t wait to deflower Colton. I hope he takes his time and finds the right people to be around him. @colton be very suspicious. Guys are gonna want you for the wrong reasons. Be true to you," one fan commented while another posted: "Colton is going to discover, in a totally not scripted reality tv show way, that he likes Gus Kenworthy more than a gay guide."
"Bachelor Colton will be dating Gus Kenworthy by the end of the year," one user predicted. "Colton Underwood and Gus Kenworthy in the new Netflix show Siblings or Dating," another tweeted. "Colton Underwood is totally dating Gus Kenworthy, isn't he," a fan shared. "Sounds liKe he’s found a boyfriend," another wrote.
