Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon has pulled out of a job as a correspondent for NBC at the Winter Games in South Korea. However, according to USA Today, he has chose to turn down the offer after he realized he would have to give up his Olympic standing and credential for the position.
Rippon, who has been wildly popular with skating fans during these Olympics, said no to NBC because the gig would require he leave the Olympic village, where he is staying with his fellow Team USA all stars in Pyeongchang. We would certainly be interested to hear Rippon's thoughts on curling.

It's powerful this platform you can have at the Olympic Games.
"I will never forget my roots, I'm absolutely Pennsylvania's sweetheart first and foremost", says Rippon.
Bronze medalist, Adam Rippon, talks about being America's sweetheart and what's next after the Olympics. I'll assume NBC had already hired figure skating analysts who were more than capable of covering every round of the Olympics, and they didn't need to add another.
