Watch a 13-year-old Adam Rippon describe his Olympic dreams

But figure skating's scoring system rewards difficulty.

"Also! Quick movie idea for you: You (played by you) tweet me in the middle of the night at the Olympics and I (played by me) die immediately".

Too much and too loudly for some people, who don't like his message or his style.

He tweeted: "To all those who tweet at me saying that they 'hope I fail", I have failed many times in my life.

About being gay and being a skater.

Rippon did not try any quadruple jumps while Kolyada and Chan did. "And that's sort of given my skating a greater objective", Rippon said. "I don't think somebody like me would be welcome there".

Right now, it's a blast.

"I have no desire to go to the White House", Rippon told the Daily Mail. "I'm not buying it", he said, ABC News reported.

Speaking of the Sesame Street crowd, at the same press conference where he called himself "America's sweetheart", he explained his motivation for being out and proud at the Games. Not only did he win bronze earlier this week, but he also has gained worldwide attention and endeared himself to many with his sense of humor and outgoing personality. "I keep coming back every year, and every year I get better!"

It was needed six years ago when he lived in the basement of his coach, Rafael Arutunian, and took the apples because he had to spend what little money he had on a gym membership. I'm different. On some level we all feel different, and when we are embraced for who we are, it's awesome.

As we reported, the openly gay U.S. Olympian has gone on record to voice his distaste for Vice President Mike Pence given his long record of anti-gay legislation and reported support of gay conversion therapy (which Pence denies).

"Mirai and I have really been through a lot together", says Rippon.

His Twitter feed is so crowded with comments - both pro and con - that he can't get on it.

Adam Rippon of the United States competes in the Figure Skating Team Event – Men's Single Free Skating on day three of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at Gangneung Ice Arena in Gangneung, South Korea, Feb. 12, 2018.

Rippon then shared he won't be visiting the White House for the traditional Olympians visit.

"I don't want it to distract from them, and I don't want my Olympic experience to be about Mike Pence".
