    Charlie White

    Jew Score:



    October 24, 1987 —

    Are you going to watch Olympic ice dancing, dear readers? Of course not, you say? Well, we're gonna give you a reason!

    No, previously profiled Jewish medalist Ben Agosto is no longer competing. But Charlie White is!

    White, a silver medalist in Vancouver, is one of the favorites in Sochi. And when he won that silver medal, his grandmother called a local radio station and proclaimed that her grandson is Jewish! Various Jewish publications picked up on that and celebrated that rare Jewish winter medalist!

    Not so fast.

    Apparently, White's grandmother was a tad overzealous. Charlie isn't Jewish. SHE is, converting after marrying her second husband. In fact, Charlie is a proud Christian.

    As if you needed another reason NOT to watch Olympic ice dancing.

    Verdict: Not a Jew.
