Shaun White Nude Photos: Reportedly Out There!
The Hollywood Gossip - about 5 years
Olympic snowboarding god <a class="fplink fp-691335" href="/shaun+white">Shaun White</a> may be in some serious hot water if photos taken of him laying (half) pipe at a hotel party in 2009 have made their way online. Dude is not clothed and not not having sex in them. Several party goers managed to snap photos of White's naked romp with some girl, but his people managed to erase all the pics ... or so they had thought. At least two of the pics have surfaced, though, one in which Shaun is making out with a hot blonde gal in front of other people, clothed, and another in which Shaun appears to be getting it in missionary style, grinning at the camera, totally nude. Oh, and the ginger carpet matches the drapes, apparently. The seller is looking for a serious payday, but so far has not found a buyer ... which doesn't really shock us to be honest. The Olympics were almost two years ago now, and when was the last time you thought about <a class="fplink fp-691335" href="/shaun ...

    In October 2013, White appeared in the music video for "City of Angels" by Thirty Seconds to Mars.
    More Details Hide Details White has had the longstanding nickname "The Flying Tomato", due to his shock of red hair. In 2006, Rolling Stone wrote about the nickname, "he used to embrace it, even wearing headbands with a flying-tomato logo, but he has grown tired of it." He has also been nicknamed "animal", a reference to a character from The Muppet Show.
    Including all winter X Games competitions through 2013, his medal count stands at 18 (13 gold, 3 silver, 2 bronze), among which is the first quadruple win streak by a male athlete in one discipline, the snowboard slopestyle.
    More Details Hide Details White's streak was snapped in 2007 when he lost to Andreas Wiig and Teddy Flandreau, with White taking the bronze.

    More Details Hide Details
    In 2009, Forbes magazine estimated that he had earned $9 million from his endorsements in 2008.
    More Details Hide Details White has made cameo appearance as himself in the 2011 film Friends with Benefits, the 2013 episode "Da Flippity Flop" of the animated TV series American Dad!, and the 2014 Disney Channel Original Movie Cloud 9. In a 2007 interview with Outside magazine, White stated that he had turned down numerous film roles in which "the first lines his character are always "What up, brah?'". White plays guitar in the electronic rock band Bad Things, which also features former Augustana bassist Jared Palomar. The band played in one of the four Saturday headlining slots at the 2013 Lollapalooza festival, as a last minute replacement for Death Grips.
    On February 14, 2009, White won the FIS World Cup Men's Halfpipe event at Vancouver's Cypress Mountain.
    More Details Hide Details Out of the gate in his first qualifying run, he qualified immediately with the day's best score of 45.5. With a thumb sprained on an over-rotated backside 1080 in the second qualifying run, he clinched the event with the first of his two runs in the finals. His first finals run was awarded the highest score ever in FIS halfpipe, a 47.3. At the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, White again won gold in the halfpipe. In the finals, White recorded a score of 46.8 on his first run, which proved a high enough score to secure the gold medal without a second run. He performed his second run anyway, as a victory lap, ending his run with a well-anticipated Double McTwist 1260 which he named The Tomahawk. This second run resulted in a record score of 48.4 (50 is the highest possible score) enlarging his margin of victory. His nearest competitor won the silver with a points total of 45., 3.4 behind White.
  • 2008
    Age 21
    Shaun White:Snowboarding was the 20th best-selling game of December 2008 in the United States. There was a lot of controversy over who won the 2009 SuperPipe at Winter X Games XIII.
    More Details Hide Details Kevin Pearce had 5 hits in the pipe, and all were the same tricks White did in his final run. White, on the other hand, had 6 hits and he started off his run with a big backside rodeo 540 where Pearce started his run off with a big grab. Although Pearce went bigger, he had only 5 hits, and his first hit wasn't as technical as White's first hit. Judges came to the conclusion that White deserved the better score because he started off with a more technical trick and he had 1 more hit than Pearce. With the win, White became the second competitor, after Tanner Hall, to win a gold medal in the superpipe in consecutive years at the Winter X Games. He also won a gold medal in Slopestyle, finally winning gold after 2 straight years of bronze.
    On November 16, 2008, White released his first videogame "Shaun White Snowboarding" in North America (November 14, 2008, in Europe).
