Britney Spears tweets love to Olympic skater Adam Rippon

Proud Now working with a nutrition Adam is healing old food wounds and is proud to be an advocate for LGBTQ rights withing Team USA

Rippon became one of the most well-known names of the Olympics with his unapologetic personality and gorgeous skating style.

As it turns out, the arrival of Leslie Jones in PyeongChang, South Korea, doesn't mark the completion of NBC's Olympic correspondent team.

"You know, when I was a young kid and I started skating in Pittston, I always dreamed of going to the Olympics and now to be here at the Olympic games and to be wearing a medal is um... it's incredible", says Rippon.

Rippon was offered a position by NBC after becoming one of the breakout stars of these Games, helping the Americans win a bronze in the team event.

He made headlines for his criticisms of Vice President Mike Pence, and the politician's track record on LGBTQ issues. When asked in December what it's like to be a gay athlete, the Pennsylvanian answered, "It's exactly like being a straight athlete".


Rippon accused the VP of advocating for the funding of gay conversion therapy, based on a vague reference on Pence's website, which did not specifically mention conversion therapy. "I am proud of you and ALL OF OUR GREAT athletes and my only hope for you and all of #TeamUSA is to bring home the gold".

Rippon even posed for an Instagram picture at the opening ceremony with another openly gay Olympian, Gus Kenworthy, with the caption, "Eat your heart out, Pence". Kenworthy and Rippon are the first openly gay US athletes to compete in the Games.

He added he wanted to remain with Team USA and support his teammates and friends who are still competing since they were there for him when he hit the ice. "I'm being me and being myself".

In addition to Field and her son, he also has fans in stars like Reese Witherspoon and Britney Spears. This year of the record 89 correspondents NBC has covering the Games, at least 18 are former Olympians.
