American snowboarder Jamie Anderson is looking for a hottie.

She told UsWeekly in an interview that the Tinder app - designed to help make hook-ups even easier for the young and beautiful - was a lot of fun to use in the Olympic Village.

"Tinder in the Olympic Village is next level. It's all athletes! In the mountain village it's all athletes. It's hilarious. There are some cuties on there," Anderson told the magazine.

But the co-founder of Tinder isn't exactly excited about the publicity. He wants Anderson to think less about that kind of scoring and more on her snowboarding scores.

Justin Mateen told TMZ, "Tinder will always be here when you're done."

"Tinder is a great way to meet new people when you're traveling and want to get the most out of your experience in a new city, but for now, focus on giving it your all while competing"

Clearly Jamie Anderson wasn't too distracted - she took home the gold medal in the Women's Slopestyle Event on Feb. 9.

He earned a gold medal in 2006, two silvers in 2002 and 2010, and has already won the team gold medal in Sochi this year.

Lebanese skier Jackie Chamoun is receiving a chilly reception back home, despite how smoking hot she is. Actually, it's directly because of that fact.

The Olympian, 22, posed topless three years ago for a calendar that featured, well, scantily clad Olympians. Images of it have gone viral at the Sochi Games.

Jackie Chamoun Topless: Before Sochi Olympics

The media in her home country has cried scandal and the sports minister called for an investigation "to take the required steps to avoid harming Lebanon's reputation."

More like providing it with a much-needed boost, are we right?!

Unless she gets frostbite out there ... in which case, #FAIL.

A contrite Jackie Chamoun explained on Facebook that these were behind-the-scenes images and that the material "wasn't supposed to go public."

The tried and true Farrah Abraham defense. Always a winner.

The cover girl for the 50th annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue has been revealed, and it's ... Barbie! Yes, the iconic, all-American doll made by Mattel!

Certainly a different choice than what we were expecting:

Barbie, whose tiny waist, endless legs, voluptuous curves and makeup have all sparked controversy of late, is flaunting her famous figure like never before.

Featured alongside supermodels like Christie Brinkley and Brooklyn Decker, Barbie is the cover girl for a campaign Sports Illustrated is calling "unapologetic."

It appears that the Barbie SI cover is not the actual cover, as it says "pomotional overwrap," but reports say it will thus be wrapped around many copies.

The magazine calls the plastic figure, "The doll that started it all."

Lisa McKnight, Mattel's senior vice president of marketing, adds:

"As a legend herself, and under constant criticism about her body and how she looks, posing ... gives Barbie and her fellow legends an opportunity to own who they are."

Dale Hansen, a Dallas-area sports anchor, has offered an epic defense of Michael Sam, the former Missouri star turned NFL prospect who just came out as gay.

Sam, "the SEC defensive player of the year and expected to be a third to fifth-round pick in the NFL draft, tells the world he's gay," Hansen began his most recent commentary."

"The best defensive player in college football's best conference only a third to fifth round NFL pick? Really? That is shocking, and I guess that other thing is, too."

Several NFL officials tell SI that Michael Sam coming out will hurt his draft status, due to its effect in the locker room; it would be uncomfortable, because that's a man's world.

Watch Hansen obliterate that argument in the monologue below:

"It wasn't that long ago," the 65-year-old recalls, "when we were being told that black players couldn't play in 'our games because it would be 'uncomfortable.'"

"And even when they finally could, it took several more years before a black man played quarterback. Because we weren't 'comfortable' with that, either."

Shaun White's quest for gold unraveled during his final halfpipe run at the 2014 Olympic winter games in Sochi.

The 27-year-old American, who opted out of the Olympic slopestyle debut, put all his chips in the halfpipe, where he hoped to win a third straight gold.

Iouri Podladtchikov, a.k.a. "I-Pod" and the Russian-born inventor of the "YOLO" trick that White could not master, took first place in a mammoth upset.

The Japanese pair of Ayumu Hirano and Taku Hiraoka won silver and bronze, as the Americans were shockingly shut out on the halfpipe for the first time.

I-Pod's "YOLO" stunt, which stands for You Only Live Once, set the bar high for White, who has previously owned the halfpipe to a ridiculous extent.
