Out Sports Pros Gus Kenworthy And Robbie Rogers Give Kenny A Pep Talk On “The Real O’Neals”

"Okay, gay athletes stop fighting!"

First a phone call from RuPaul, then last week’s sweaty Physical tribute and now Kenny’s latest daydream on The Real O’Neals has him getting a visit from some dreamy out athletes!

In this week’s episode Kenny (Noah Galvin) becomes the newest sports star at his high school when he unleashes his surprisingly good skills on the wrestling mat.

In a new clip Kenny takes a minute to calm himself down before his big match and in the bathroom he runs into out professional athletes Robbie Rogers and Gus Kenworthy who are there to cheer him on—in his imagination.

According to Outsports, neither Rogers or Kenworthy received acting lessons before their scene, but Rogers did take some tips from his boyfriend, TV producer Greg Berlanti (Supergirl, Arrow):

“He told me to practice my lines out loud in different ways, which was very helpful,” Rogers told Outsports. “He also was a big advocate and really wanted me to do it even when I was hesitant.”

Kenny really does have the gayest imagination on TV.
