Adam's first dance earned him and Jenna a perfect score of 30.

Congrats to Adam Rippon!

    Of course he won. He HAD to win. If the judges didn’t vote him “winner,” they would have been considered evil, gay hating homophobes. I think everybody seen this one coming. Pathetic!

      Normally, I wouldn’t pay much mind to someone being so openly gay, I’m a Christian, so of course I lean to more traditional values, however, it’s more the nasty edge he has to his personality that’s a turn off..take the chip off your shoulder, everyone’s got problems and many worse than you rippon! I’ve seen him when i watched the olympics, and his attitude was a constant annoyance. Coulda done without him as a host.

      Hmm like you apparently are. Typical loser from the Skook.

        And BTW you uneducated hillbilly, it is “saw” not “seen”. Rippon probably is better educated than you. How does it feel to be out classed by a gay man?
