Gus Kenworthy is a professional athlete. He is one of Kenny's favorite athletes because like him, he is gay. He appeared as one of his hallucinations in the episode The Real Match.
Gus Kenworthy and Robbie Rogers appeared in Kenny's hallucinations, trying to help motivate him to be a wrestler because he was the first out, gay athlete at his school. He explained that being gay didn't stop him from being an openly gay athlete in major league sports. He and Robbie had some back and forth about their awards, which turned into a playful argument. All in all, they still helped move Kenny a little bit forward.
