Gretchen Bleiler, our latest Olympic Yearbook inductee, should be the kinda girl other girls love to hate. She’s gorgeous, photogenic, and an uber-talented snowboarder – but she’s so damn down to earth and cool, loathing her is impossible. Ranked the 10th hottest Winter Olympian by FHM (behind fellow FabLife Olympic Yearbook notable, Tanith Belbin, who snagged the #5 slot), Gretchen, 27, is leading a growing pack of female all-stars on the snowboarding circuit.
In addition to FHM, she’s flaunted her abs in Maxim magazine and is an outspoken activist for climate change awareness, all while piling up a ton of awards for her half pipe skills. In between winning the silver medal in Torino and numerous X Game gold medals, Gretchen found time to fall in love with snowboarder and Oakley rep Chris Hotell. The couple married this past summer in Costa Rica. See? She’s perfect – and yet we still can’t hate her!
