Chicago shirtless jogger
An interview with a shirtless jogger named Ethan Renoe has gone viral.
WGN Reporter Tahman Bradley caught up with Renoe Sunday night as he was running, shirtless, along Lake Michigan in the warm and rainy weather. The resulting video has been viewed more than 1 million times and has garnered roughly 17,000 likes and 9,000 shares on Facebook.
Many WGN followers commented on the video, praising Renoe’s looks and trying to hook up for a date.
On Monday Renoe visited the WGN studios to talk about his reaction with Pat Tomasulo and Paul Konrad.
“It’s really been crazy,” Renoe said. “I have about 900 friend requests (on Facebook) right now.”
Renoe said he was surprised about how quickly the video took off.
When WGN asked him if he was “looking for love,” Renoe replied: “I am.”
It also led to Renoe being brought back for a follow-up interview on Monday morning — this time wearing not only a shirt, but also hat — where he proudly announced that he’s a Christian.
Fans responded with enthusiasm on WGN’s Facebook page, with some asking the station how they could set up friends or family members with him.
“Whoa! He just might find a lot more love than he needs!” one person wrote.
Renoe is from Colorado, and says he is leaving town today. Watch his full interview in the video above.
