He follows in the footsteps of his role models
“Almost every Olympian is extremely inspiring. I really loved watching sport legends like Michael Phelps, and Apolo Ohno race.”
He pines after the cleverest witch
“[My crush is] Emma Watson," Chen said in the same statement. "I love her work and also the things she stands for outside of her acting.”
He's a sitcom lover
“I'm a huge fan of Scrubs, How I Met Your Mother, and Parks and Rec. I love Marvel and DC movies as well.”
He has some reasonable grievances
“Well there's few things that I really hate. One is I hate spiders, I'm terrified of spiders. And then two is also when you're wearing headphones and they just get ripped out of your ears on accident [sic] but hitting something. Those are the worst. Those are the two things that I hate the most,” he told Teen Vogue.
Regardless of how these games go, it’s clear that Chen has already made an impact on the world of figure skating, pushing his competition to aspire to bigger and bolder programs. So get accustomed to the name; you may be hearing it for years to come.
