VICE News sat down with Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon to get his reactions to the most ridiculous, odd, and obsessive internet theories we could find about him.

Some things we learned about Rippon: he thinks Grindr is trash. “You're not looking for love. You're looking for a mistake,” Rippon said.

But Tinder is different. Rippon said he uses his own name on Tinder, “because I feel like Tinder is the classy version of gay online dating.”

Rippon also weighed in on a fan-generated pie chart called “Which other events is Adam Rippon medaling in,” which celebrated the Olympian's penchant for real talk. Rippon acknowledged that he’s not afraid to voice his distaste for U.S. Vice President Mike Pence — or as the pie chart coined it “Pence-negging” — “because my God he's deserved it,” said Rippon.

Watch Rippon's spot on the third installment of “Vicepedia.”
