So the 2014 Winter Olympic Games began on February 7th, 2014. We can choose between watching alpine skiing, biathlon, bobsleigh racing, cross country skiing, curling, figure skating, freestyle skiing, ice hockey, luge, nordic combined skiing, short track speed skating, skeleton racing, ski jumping, snowboarding, and speed skating. I totally just Googled that.
Much like the Superbowl, I feel like the Olympics can go one of two ways: Either you’re obsessed with it or you couldn’t care less. Unfortunately, I fall in the second category. I don’t even watch baseball or football, so I truly have zero desire to watch anyone compete in sports I’ve never even seen anywhere but in the Olympics. Unless, of course, one of these people are on the screen…
If you’ve read Hot People Get Away With More Because We Like Looking At Them, then you know how I feel about good looking people. You can pretend to be less shallow or vain, but the truth is: EVERYONE prefers looking at an attractive person vs. an ugly person. If this wasn’t true, why would 90% of actors and singers be drop-dead gorgeous? Studies and polls are done all the time to see what consumers and viewers want — and what we want is some eye candy to stare at!
If you think about it, it makes perfect sense that Olympic stars would be stunning — they literally train and diet for about twenty years to get to the highest and most honorable of all athletic triumphs. My diets and workouts usually last about 20 hours. So go them! They deserve to be ogled at by the likes of us non-sports watching folk! I will be watching the hot athletes…I mean Winter Olympic games…and shall keep you updated. Happy watching!
