    A really trashy thread :p List the most attractive (male) figure skaters past and present...

    These are the skaters I had a crush on some years ago:

    Alexei Urmanov
    Evgeni Platov
    Artur Dmitriev

    Most of them haven't aged well :yikes:

    Nowadays, I guess these are the most beautiful men in figure skating:

    Andrew Poje
    Maxim Trankov
    Nikita Katsalapov

    :grope:

    I know that women are apparently falling over themselves to be with this guy, but I just don't see it... I never understood why he is such a heart throb. He looks quite skinny and ordinary to me

    I mean, he has a pretty classically handsome face and his height is not bad for a men's singles skater. http://www.sport-folio.net/images/profile_photos/brian-joubert.jpg

    Ilia has aged very well. :swoon:

    Gachinski is the most handsome of the current Russian men. IMO, of course ;)

    Of the US men, Max probably has the most raw sex appeal (IMO anyway :grope:), but Joshua is probably the most classically handsome. (That was a mighty fine podium they had at Nationals this year.)

    I don't think I've ever been into any US men (singles at least). lol. John Zimmerman pretty much would be the only one who even comes close.

    I'd be into Takahashi if he were taller, but I just don't go for guys who are shorter than me.

    Yagudin looked good in his 2002 Olympic season, but that's pretty much it. He hasn't aged well.

    I don't know misskarne. I think Adam might be more "classically handsome" than Josh. Those cheekbones!
    But, with the right hair, I'd pick Max.

    Xela, I totally agree with you about Urmanov. I think the outlandish costumes he wore blinded many to just how gorgeous he is/was. This is a man that requires no embellishment. I saw Urmanov a couple of seasons ago at COR, where he was coaching. I thought he was even sexier than during his competitive heyday. Please don't break my heart and tell me he has deteriorated. :(

    I know Artur D has not aged well based on the recent photos I have seen.

    I see Platov at my rink all the time (he coaches there). Let's just say, I'd rhumba with him ANYTIME:swoon:

    You see Platov on a regular basis?! I will just have to pretend I'm not EXTREMELY jealous :eek:

    Urmanov is actually the only one of the three who I thought aged beautifully. I think he was the most handsome singles skater of all time! The costumes did detract from his classic beauty, but in 1994 I actually loved his costume in the long programme.

    And yes.. Artur Dmitriev was so beautiful, but aged almost as well as Marlon Brando :(

    If you're really nice, I might share him. Of course you are limited to doing a very chaste Dutch waltz with him. I have first dibs on the hot Latin dances with all the hip action:D

    Of the male skaters currently competing I would say Brian Joubert, Andrew Poje, and Alexander Smirnov are among the best looking IMO.

    Of male skaters from the past, I would definitely say Alexei Urmanov, John Zimmerman and Peter Oppegard. I also thought that Evan Lysacek was quite handsome when he was competing.

    I like the Maxes (Aaron, Kovtun) and I disagree- Alexey Yagudin has aged well. Also Alexander Abt used to be cute when he was 17. This is a great post-Worlds thread!

    *gets scissors* You are right. Max needs better hair. I much preferred last season's hair. This season has been a hot mess.

    Scott Moir and Adam Rippon (I find him less attractive with curly hair though).

    Mishkutenok & Dmitriev are my favorite pairs team of all time but come on now. Artur was never handsome at any stage in his life. :rofl:

    Scott Moir is sort of handsome but his pointy nose is distracting.

    Shawn Sawyer by far! There's something about Konstantin Menshov that's very endearing. Kristoffer Berntsson was also cute. Of course, there's Joubert too.

    Charlie White must be added to the handsome skater list. I also enjoy looking at Javier Fernandez. ;)

    Joubidoo is irresistible in person IMHO.
    Ditto, Yags in his prime.
    And I had a serious weakness for wooly bear Artur D back in the day. sigh.

    Current hottest hottie: Andrew Poje.

    All time most fabulous: Daisuke Takahashi. :swoon:
