Is he or isn’t he?

From his diminutive stature to his immaculate grooming, Ryan is a magnet for mockery. He claims to be 5’9”, yet some speculate that he’s closer to 5’5”. Also, his perfectly coiffed hair, bleached teeth and tanned skin have led many to question his sexuality. Still, Ryan insists he’s straight. According to Stuff magazine, he’s “the American poster boy for metrosexuality.” (Mark J. Terrill / Associated Press)
