    He is very handsome and it's hilarious to think that someone thought she might not be pretty enough because I think of her as such a superstar. I have her on quite a bit of a pedestal in my head! :)

    Oh please! This a lighthearted thread and those are such sweeping statements. I thankfully live in a culture where my body is NOT public property, and to say men are not judged by their physical attractiveness ignores how men are depicted in today's film, TV & advertising. It also ignores history in general. Just find some images from the 16/17th centuries & you'll see how men often dressed even more ornately than women - often to accentuate their -- assets.

    It had a lot to do with her teeth, IIRC, which let's face it...was pretty bad before she got braces. I haven't read the book in a long time, but I do recall that Zhao was the golden boy of Chinese figure skating and they wanted to make sure they had the perfect partner for him. And I agree, she's a total superstar and was the stronger skater of the two, especially later in their career.

    You've never been catcalled? Not even once in your entire life?
    Plus I was responding to an earlier poster who wondered why women are scantily clad in figure skating while men aren't.

    Morgan Cipres and Matteo Guarise are my reward for catching the middle pack of the pair competition.

    Nikita Katsalopov is also really hot. Josh Farris among the Americans

    Very handsome, indeed. And he is aging well! Shen is pretty too, it was just that the teeth were very distracting. Their daughter will be a looker! (And maybe a great skater as well?)

    Nikita Katsalapov - young but already handsome. In a few years he´ll be the hottest guy in town.

    Platov or Naumov? I think the latter has aged better than the former.

    Evgeni Platov was gorgeous in his prime and I had a huge thing for him back in the day. He hasn't aged well and I was shocked when I saw him recently at Worlds.

    Alex Shibutani is hot and sexy! Tall, broad shoulders and chest, fabulous posture and a wonderful personality. Can't go wrong there.

    Maybe I'm thinking some other Russian ice dancer or pairs skater turned coach. I get them all confused.

    Could the Russian guy you're thinking about be Peter Tchernychev who skated with Naomi Laing for the US? He's now coaching and is still hotter than an egg frying on the pavement on a sunny, 100 + degree day in Tucson, Arizona! :smokin:

    Tchernyshev looks like Francois Arnaud in the Borgias.

    Me too! Which is why I always found it so bemusing (confusing) that both Grishuk and Usova claimed he hit on them and they both rejected him :confused:

    Yes, that's Peter T! :swoon: He alone turned me on to US ice dancing during his competition years.

    Ooohhh Rockne...I forgot about him. He has rugged good looks and is extremely masculine.

    Definitely Nikita Katsalapov. A few weeks ago I saw a dude in a bar who could have been his twin. He stood next to us for some time (it was really crowded) to get himself and his friends a few drinks and I really thought: "What the hell is Nikita Katsalapov doing in a German students' bar?!" :lol:

    I had a huge crush on (almost) the whole lost generation of talented Russian male skaters. Alexander Uspenski for example was soooo handsome.

    Peter Tchernyshev :swoon:

    Other honorable mentions: Maxim Trankov, Charlie White, Brian Joubert, Ivan Bukin
