No, Adam Rippon’s new boyfriend isn’t Sally Field’s son, Sam Greisman… or TV host Justin Sylvester who asked him out in a live TV interview.
It’s Finnish-born Jussi-Pekka Kajaala. See. Told you, you couldn’t guess. Rippon posted the above pic on Instagram with the caption,
“Good boys Finnish first.“
Rippon told People that he met him on Tinder. (It was People so he said Tinder, if he had told The Wow Report would he have said Grindr..? I’m kidding.)
Anyway, apparently the pair has,
“Been talking for the past seven months” but now they’ve “started to hang out a little bit more. Now that I’m even busier, I thought it was a better time [for us] to hang out.”
When Rippon was on Ellen earlier this month he said:
“I’m working with GLAAD’s youth engagement program and you know this is so important because we’re reaching these kids and they’re becoming activists in their community. When I was young, to have somebody out there that I could’ve looked up to, it would’ve made a world of difference, and it would’ve changed my life…
to have these young kids going out there and changing the world. This is something that I need to be a part of. It is really important for the youth out there to have somebody, and have a face on television and sports and every area, and say that there are gay people everywhere, and know you’re not alone.”
Now, Adam’s not alone either. Kajaala’s Instagram is engaging, let’s say. I’m going to stalk, uh, follow him and see where this relationship goes.
