U.S. Gymnast Danell Leyva is a Show-off, But No One's Complaining


The U.S. Olympian gymnast has a habit of sexting women, Deadspin reports.

A NYT profile also pegs him as someone who enjoys being seen:

He insisted, though, that he is just as much of a showman and would like to work in entertainment someday.

“I want to do musicals, acting, Broadway, everything,” Leyva said. He noted that only a few people have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony. “My goal is to join that group.”

One more shot, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. To all you boys who have 6 foot fever:

    Just leave all the hot, short guys for me. Short men are about the sexiest thing going, IMO, nothing better, hotter or easier to play with in bed. Yum.

  2. What's with all the short-dude hate? I love guys who are this size. 5'7", 5'5", all the way down to adorable Jonathan Horton at 5'1".

  10. Danell could have more to say if he had performed well last night. Let's see what he does on the individual events. I prefer John Orozco myself. But I do agree, Danell's daddy is totally papi chulo material. Ai!!!

  13. Hopefully the pathetic men's gymnastic team will focus on winning and less posing

  14. First he is not that short- 5'7" and looking at that body and those lips who cares about his height. He does look like porn star Damien Crosse's younger brother- who by the way I saw in person and is not that tall either. But seriously I do hope he gets his mind back on the gymnastics and wins a medal.

  15. He's hot, but he is no Jake Dalton.

  17. I thought that the other members of the U.S. gymnastics team were also hot. I especially liked Sam Mikulak. He seemed to hug his teammates a lot.

  18. “I want to do musicals, acting, Broadway, everything,” Leyva said. He noted that only a few people have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony. “My goal is to join that group.”
    OK, you are not going to star in a musical if shorter (5'7") than actresses wearing heels, no matter how cute you are. Show biz is TOUGH.
    Great Cuban ego, hot guy -- and, eventually, Gayer than May Day, or as bi as many actors.

  19. @Markus - "The guy bombed last night on a world wide stage and the NBC commentator said 'Boy he couldn't wait to cover his head with a towel after that performance, could he?'. Karma it sounds like."

    What does karma have to do with this?

  20. @Andrew "He's hot, but he is no Jake Dalton."

    Jake is cute + he has really pretty eyes, but he's not hotter than Danell. I think all the guys on the team are cute/hot, actually.

    Btw, if you guys were really on the ball (pun intended) you'd have posted screencaps of Danell sitting in his white leotard/comp shirt (talk about some bulge going on) before he put his pants back on. Woof.

    Also, not on the US team, but GB's Louis Smith is a hottie. And Ireland's Kieran had a nice butt on him.

  21. His haircut is pretty gay.

  22. LUKE is a little too Miss Thing-ish for my tastes

    Posted by: buster | Aug 2, 2012 12:08:21 PM

  23. Pretty shallow guy. I like his towel better than him. He'll end up doing gay porn though. That's how they all start out in hollywood.

  24. Monton de envidiososssss
