Meet Javier Fernandez, the 'Blaine' of Men's Figure Skating

Meet Javier Fernandez, the 'Blaine' of Men's Figure Skating

While Javier Fernandez finished just shy of the medal stand at the Winter Olympics, he still put on a good show. The 22-year-old is a spritely, handsome skater from Spain who competed in his second Olympics.


And when not competing at Sochi he (apparently) shares a certain likeness to a character on Glee... Prior to the Games, Fernandez donned a superhero motif that saw him go from geek to hero chic in one routine. Performed at several events throughout last year, the number was switched out for something more a bit more grown up.


But according to fans on Tumblr, the original look screamed Blaine, portrayed by Darren Criss. ("It's like a rl Blaine Anderson on the ice is2g.") And we totally agree.


The cute skate featured Fernandez channeling his inner-glee club and putting on performance that Ryan Murphy should borrow for a future skating-theme episode.

Any chance this is his Kurt dousing him with water?


Sadly no... Like Blaine, this (straight) man is taken.
