I may have missed it, but until SimplyLex (welcome) came along, no one had mentioned Gwendal Peizerat - http://www.peoples.ru/sport/fskating...peizerat_2.gif
As for ladies - Gordeeva.
I believe Marina Zueva's son who placed I think third at least one in Canada's nationals was supposedly good looking and a GAP model - Fedor Andreev??? might have been his name. I think Nicole Bobek before the drugs, dubreil and lauzon, Korpi, Wagner, Cohen, Zimmerman, Jessica Dube, gordeeva and Grinkov, Elena I, Gracie Gold were all very good looking skaters.
Fedor Andreev, he modeled for A&F and other companies...Skate For Canada in singles then dance for Russia. He coaches now in Detroit.
here he is with Charlie White:
I haven't seen Jeremy Abbott mentioned yet. I think he's adorable.
Evan Lysacek, Stephane Lambiel, Luca Lanotte, Andrew Poje, Zach Donohue, Alexei Yagudin, Ryan Bradley.
Elena I, Anna Cappellini, Sasha Cohen, Kaitlyn Weaver, Gracie Gold, Alissa Czisny, Amanda Evora, Jamie Sale, etc..
many names...I read skater's names, who aren't beautiful or handsome for me...not at all!! This is really matter of taste..
the most beautiful women for me: Yuna, Alyssa,Tanith, Kiira,E. Bereznaya, A. Stepanova, Bobek, Gordeeva, E. Ilinikh, G. Gold, Witt, A. Martyusheva, Miki
cute: Mao, Lu Chen, Cohen,
sexy: Navka, N. Pechalat, Tessa
men: Weir, Rippon, Lambiel-but they lack of sex appeal, and I talking about their physical appearance only-Joubert, Kulik, Abt, Andreev,
cute: Daisuke, Yuzuru
sexy: Plushenko( I'm sure many poster disagre with his name, but I'm also sure maybe only Takahashi has so many montages on Youtube, which praise his sexy appearance, not to mention the romantic fanfictions on internet, and he had a stalker too, Trankov,Candeloro, Peizerat, Moir
I'm sure I forgot many names....
Plushyfan! There are romance fanfictions on the Internet about Plushy? That is so cool. I love the web.
I think he belongs on your "sexy" list because it's obvious he inspires intense emotion in so many, in a way that few other skaters do. He doesn't have to be everyone's cup of tea in order to qualify. I'm sure there are other skaters with this level of ardent followers. Hey, if rock stars can have screaming fans, why not our beloved skaters?
When you come right down to it, in terms of bodies, pretty much all skaters will be attractive, because they're so fit, have wonderful muscles, and also usually have great posture and move gracefully. Beyond that, it mostly depends on personal taste--except when it comes to someone like Korpi or Joubert, of course. Their appeal seems to be just about universal.
Thank you for mentioning Andreev! Shame on the rest of us for forgetting him. That guy is an Adonis.
most beautiful women: Tatiana Volosozhar, Ekaterina Gordeeva, Elena Ilinikh, Tessa Virtue, Kiira Korpi
most beautiful men: Maxim Trankov, Nikita Katsalapov, Fabian Bourzat, Scott Moir
Yes, there are. And if I know well, there are romance fanfictions about Lambiel and Joubert

Hmm. Lots of Canadians on the list.

Other handsome males that come to mind: Brian Joubert, Tomas Verner, and Ross Miner (surprised not mentioned yet! He's gotten better looking with age)
When he was skating in the 90's, I think Evgeny Platov is the best looking skater ever! He was gorgeous I think! Does anyone agree?
For the women, I'd say Ekaterina Gordeeva, Tanith Belbin & Tatiana Navka.
I love your categories! Hilarious! and I agree that Johnny and Jeffrey are both gorgeous- Hadn't mentioned them before.
