Olympian Lolo Jones: I Need a Celebrity Crush!
Track and field superstar Lolo Jones--who will be representing Team USA at the London Olympics this summer--isn't shy when it comes to talking about her dating woes.
In a recent sit-down with E! News, Jones, 29--who has pledged to remain a virgin until marriage--joked that she regrets not having any go-to celeb crushes.
"I should have one of these, so you guys can contact him and tell him I need a date," the hurdler said of taking advantage of her time in the spotlight--although Jones admitted she has some reservations about dating movie stars, anyway.
"Most actors always fool me. I always think they're so tall, but then they're like, 5'0," the 5-foot-9 stunner lamented. Still, "Whatever actor is watching this, if you're single and you are hot, I am single as well," she said, laughing. "Hit me up after the Olympics."
Since first discussing her decision to wait to have sex until she weds (on HBO's Real Sports), sports fans, writers, and players have been pushing for a meet-up with another famously virginal pro-athlete: Tim Tebow.
When New York Daily News reporter Kevin Armstrong hung out in the Jets locker room recently, he tweeted that, after Tebow entered the room, "several . . . players started chanting, 'Lolo! Lolo!'"
When Jones caught wind of Armstrong's tweet, she couldn't help but weigh in.
Joked the runner, "Hello by Lionel Richie is now on repeat on my ipod."
